As OK! previously reported, McCarthy quickly took back his remarks after the former president, 77, and his staff flipped out. “Trump is stronger today than he was in 2016,” McCarthy told Breitbart reporter Matt Boyle.
“McCarthy told Breitbart [Trump] is Biden’s strongest opponent,” Goldberg said on the talk show series. “What is happening here? I just want him to grow a pair of cojones that will give him some way to actually not waffle.”

But Baier couldn't help but dive into the list of people who have turned on Trump.
"This time, your Vice President Mike Pence is running against you. Your ambassador of the United Nations Nikki Haley, she’s running against you. Your former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he’s not supporting you. You mentioned national security adviser John Bolton, he’s not supporting you either. You mentioned Attorney General Bill Barr, says you shouldn’t be president again, calls you a 'consummate narcissist' and 'troubled man,'" the Fox News host noted.
“Because I hired 10-1 that were fantastic," Trump insisted. “For every one you say, I had ten that love us.”
