Kevin McCarthy kisses the brass ringPosted: February 18, 2022 Filed under: Uncategorized Leave a comment
This one was heard on Morning Joe this morning so wanted to post it right away. Joe Scarborough was talking about Kevin McCarthy criticizing Trump over the January 6 insurrection, but then goes down to Mar-a-Lago and “kisses the brass ring”. This is a conflation of “kiss (soneone’s) ring” (to express one’s respect or fealty to someone) and “grab the brass ring” (a chance to achieve wealth or success). A big shout out to Mike Kovacs and Sam Edelmann who both heard this one and sent it in immediately.
