Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) called on Twitter to ban a candidate running for Congress who referred to First lady Melania Trump as a “hoebag” in a tweet.
The House candidate in question is Mark Roberts, an Independent running to represent Oregon. He has a very bizarre Twitter presence, where he refers to himself as a “superfan” of television personality Andy Cohen.
McCarthy, who is running to replace Paul Ryan as House Speaker, called on Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to ban the candidate’s account for his “disgraceful” attack on the First lady.

There are only five staffers dedicated to Melania Trump vs. forty-four staffers who served Michelle Obama
