House Minority Whip Steny H. Hoyer apologized to Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy on the House floor Friday morning after calling McCarthy a “coward” in a colloquy over Homeland Security funding on Thursday. “I rise to publicly apologize to Leader McCarthy for a remark I made to myself that was picked up by the House microphone yesterday,” Hoyer said. “It was said out of frustration and anger, it was wrong and I have apologized privately to Mr. McCarthy, who I believe is a man of integrity in this House.”
