Tensions were running high after the House of Representatives voted to oust former Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).
According to a new report from The Washington Post, McCarthy cursed out former President Donald Trump after he refused to defend the California Republican to his colleagues.

After Trump gave McCarthy a list of reasons why he didn’t support the former Speaker in a phone call, McCarthy let loose, the Post report said.
“F‑‑‑ you,” he told Trump, according to two sources McCarthy told about the conversation, the Post reported.
While Trump did not offer to support McCarthy after being ousted as Speaker the former president later explicitly endorsed Jim Jordan for the position.
McCarthy has defended Trump in the wake of numerous civil and federal investigations into the former President.
