Democrats in Congress are speaking out on social media on Republican leader Kevin McCarthy's failed attempts to become House speaker.
The Republicans adjourned for the day in disarray as the party tries to regroup from his a historic defeat after a long, messy start for the new Congress.
The House agreed to return at noon Wednesday.
McCarthy had pledged a "battle on the floor" for as long as it took to overcome right-flank fellow Republicans who were refusing to give him their votes. But it was not at all clear how the embattled GOP leader could rebound after becoming the first speaker nominee in 100 years to fail to win the gavel with his party in the majority.
Without a speaker, the House cannot fully form - swearing in its members, naming its committee chairmen, engaging in floor proceedings and launch investigations.
Here are some of the posts from congressional Democrats on Twitter:
