House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Tuesday spoke harshly about fellow GOP Rep. Liz Cheney, saying the No. 3 Republican in the House has “got real problems,” according to an audio recording reviewed by Axios.

“I’ve had it with her. You know, I’ve lost confidence,” the Republican leader told “Fox and Friends” host Steve Doocy in off-air remarks that were caught on a hot mic. “Well, someone just has to bring a motion, but I assume that will probably take place.”

McCarthy expressed concerns during the live interview about Cheney, who serves as chair of the House Republican Conference, but did not offer as blunt an assessment about the congresswoman.

“I have heard from members concerned about her ability to carry out the job as conference chair, to carry out the message,” McCarthy said. “We all need to be working as one if we’re able to win the majority [in the 2022 midterm elections].”

McCarthy’s and Cheney’s offices did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.
