No good deed goes unpunished.

Those are words to always remember, especially in politics. When James Michael Curley was mayor of Boston, he would occasionally get reports from neighborhoods that someone had turned against him.

Hizzoner always feigned surprise, shaking his head and mentioning the traitor by name.

“I can’t believe he’s talking bad about me,” Curley would say. “I have never done anything for man!”

I was thinking about this phenomenon the other day when news broke that Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the Speaker-in-waiting of the 6th US House of Representatives.

McCarthy, a slippery swamp creature, tut-ttt who was “fed up” with Trump and that there was “no way” he could defend him.

On Thursday morning, McCarthy denied ever saying such things. On Thursday night, the tape was played on MSNBC.

Early reports indicate that Trump is willing to forgive and forget. Perhaps he’s softening: He also endorsed JD Vance in the Republican primary for Senate in Ohio.

I’m a little surprised, because to me, Vance gives off serious Kevin McCarthy RINO vibes, and he’s been even more open about misleading Trump than McCarthy was in public, before Thursday night, that is.

I met McCarthy in 2020, by Donald J. Trump. They were dining together at Mar-a-Lago the night Iranian terrorist boss General Qasem Soleimani picked up his 72 virgins after a CIA drone strike turned him into a grease stain on the runway. Tehran airport.

“Who would be better for me against?” asked a very relaxed Trump. “Bernie or Biden?”

“Bernie,” I said instantly, and Trump nodded and looked at McCarthy.

“That’s what Kevin says too,” he said. “That’s what everyone says.”

Everyone was right, obviously. Even the Democrats’ COVID-19 mass hysteria could not have saved Sanders.

The point is that, for whatever reason, Trump seems to like McCarthy. He has called him “my Kevin”.

McCarthy was the first national Republican to visit him in Palm Beach after he left office.

But this wasn’t the first time someone who has been treated royally at Mar-a-Lago has returned the favor to Trump with an “Et tu Brute” slash to the back.

In fact, if they ever wanted to change the name of the palatial retreat, the Trumps could call it the House of No Good Deed Goes Unpunished.

Last week, Trump sat down for a lengthy taped interview with Piers Morgan, a Fleet Street pirate who has just been hired by Rupert Murdoch, the former Fleet Street owner who still runs Fox News Channel and much more.
