House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy Thursday declared House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is "unfit for the job" after earlier this week, she accused Republicans, including Sen. Tim Scott, of presenting a police reform bill that meant they were "trying to get away with murder" in the case of George Floyd, and then for refusing to apologize for her comments. 

"Says a lot if Democrats keep her as speaker, for her to say that in a time the nation needs to have healing, to rebuild, to work together," the California Republican said on Fox Business' "Mornings with Maria." "For her to play politics at this moment in time, seeing the uprisings across America, she is unfit for the job. She wouldn't even apologize for that. She knows she is playing politics. That is what is wrong with the system today."

McCarthy pointed out that when he was asked a question about the Democrats' House bill, he refused because he wanted to sit in a room and solve the issue as a group, but instead, Pelosi chose to call Scott "a murderer."

And as a result, "everybody in America" should be upset by the Senate Democrats' move to block the police reform bill Tuesday, said McCarthy. 

Scott "has been working on this entire life (with) the experiences of what he lived through," said McCarthy. "They voted not to even bring the bill up, even after the Republicans said you can have 20 amendments."

But in the House, Democrats didn't allow any amendments in committee to their bill or speak with Republicans, said McCarthy. "Then the speaker of the House has accused Tim Scott and every Republican of murder," he said. "This office of speaker is too big for a comment so small as Nancy Pelosi has said."

He also accused Democrats of not being serious about passing a law, but of wanting to politicize the matter.
