Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) has been fired from her role in the House. There were no vote tallies taken. Since the vote was done by voice. Cheney seemed to accept her fate, not even making the calls to bring together supporters to fight for her position. And of course, Trump had some fighting words for Lizzy’s removal:
“The GOP has a great opportunity to rid themselves of a terrible leader, a huge Democratic talking point, and a warmonger, someone with no heart or personality. Liz Cheney is terrible for our nation. Almost everyone in the GOP, including 90% of the people in Wyoming, look forward to her removal!”
You can’t mount a defense when the other top Republicans, Congressmen Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Steve Scalise (R-LA), supported a leadership switch up. It’s over for her. Now, the search begins for her replacement. And I understand Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY) has been touted by McCarthy and Scalise, but some people have said she is not a consensus choice. She voted against the Trump tax cuts back in 2017, but every Republican in the northeast did. She made up for it by solidly supporting President Trump during his impeachment.
Liz, however, voted with Democrats to remove President Trump during impeachment. In response to this, Republicans attempted to remove her previously, but failed. No doubt in part due to the establishment not wanting to give Trump’s election challenge any weight. This time, she was targeted for removal due to her “focusing on bashing Trump.”
She is an obvious RINO and an obvious traitor. That makes her inconvenient to the people in power. They want to slowly and silently destroy the MAGA movement. You can’t do that with a Liz Cheney in power. Am I glad she is gone? Of course. But what comes after Liz? That’s the scary part.
