Kevin McCarthy kisses the brass ringPosted: February 18, 2022
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.
