With John Boehner out, radical conservatives set their sights on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell

"The next question is when will Boehner be joined by McConnell in his resignation," Laura Ingraham asked

On "The Laura Ingraham Show," the host opined that conservatives need to make sure the GOP establishment "doesn't just install a younger version of John Boehner," and that one of the ways to make sure that doesn't happen is to send a message to the Republican Party by forcing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as well.

Ingraham speculated that California Representative Kevin McCarthy would replace Boehner, and that while "he's a nice guy," he's "just a younger version of Boehner, with a better sense of humor." He's "in with the Hollywood people and the Silicon Valley tech guys," and therefore out of touch with the conservative base.

At this point, Ingraham said that people are messaging her demanding to know when McConnell will resign, to which she replied "that's the next question -- when will McConnell join him in his resignation? Maybe we're seeing a sign that the [GOP] establishment is listening" to the party's radically conservative base.

"But not if [Boehner's] replaced by McCarthy, that's just same old, same old," she said.
