Biden: GOP speaker drama 'embarrassing' and 'not my problem' - POLITICO

President Joe Biden on Wednesday called the battle unfolding within the race for residence speaker "embarrassing," after condo Republicans failed to coalesce round one candidate right through three separate votes Tuesday.

"relating to the combat over the Speaker … that's no longer my issue," Biden advised reporters as he left the White residence en path to Kentucky to tout the bipartisan infrastructure bill passed in 2021. "I just consider it's a little embarrassing that it's taking so lengthy," he added, noting that "the relaxation of the area is looking" to peer if we are able to "get our act together."

"What I'm concentrated on is getting things finished," Biden stated.

When asked Tuesday concerning the Biden's options on the speakership race, White house Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre advised journalists President Biden "certainly will now not insert himself in that procedure," saying the administration turned into "anticipating working with congressional colleagues including Democrats, Republicans and Independents this year."

On Tuesday, a handful of Republicans blocked Kevin McCarthy's bid for speaker all through three straight votes for the gavel, with McCarthy simplest dropping support as the day wore on.

because the condominium GOP prepares to enter the 2d day of deliberation, it's uncertain whether McCarthy's whip count has enhanced or how Republicans will proceed in their public infighting over the speaker's gavel.
