The thing is - Gaetz is completely correct that McCarthy can't be trusted. Look at how he blamed Trump for the Jan 6th insurrection and then became one of Trump's most staunch defenders. Gaetz is right for self serving reasons, but he's still correct.Whaddaguy
The fact that he pissed off his own party just underlines how unfit for office he is and what a massive fuck up he's made for himself.
He's now turning to Democrats to help save him from being tossed. He's going to have to offer up something incredible for them to take an offer coming from him, and would likely further imperil his position within the Republican party. Zero sympathy for a two faced liar like him.
Even if McCarthy doesn't get voted out. His reputation is worthless amongst his peers and likely voters. He's playing a zero sum game that's nearly up.
