PATHETIC: GOP House Leaders Talk About Expelling Liz Cheney to Appease Trump
This has to be the ultimate humiliation and there have to be a few GOP leaders that know it and yet have no choice. They must do Trump’s bidding, and thus they must move to oust the disloyal Liz Cheney. They are silent about Trump-supporting, underage traff1cking, Matt Gaetz.
Suck that in and deeply ponder it for just a moment. Republican leaders say that Cheney must go because Cheney has become a “distraction,” when it’s been Gaetz making all the disgusting and humiliating headlines: Cheney, the disloyal one.
My god. From Axios:
Top Republicans are turning on Rep. Liz Cheney, the party’s highest-ranking woman in Congress, with one conservative leader suggesting she could be ousted from her GOP post within a month.

She is free to continue calling herself a Republican. But it will do her no good at all within her party, she’s in the wilderness with no role in anything.
Banks (R-Ind.), leader of the largest conservative caucus in the House, told Axios Friday that Cheney’s continued criticisms are “an unwelcome distraction,” and he questioned whether she would retain her leadership role in a month.
Sweet baby Jeezus on the Ways and Means Committee, Liz Cheney is the one infuriating them because she’s talking about legitimate elections, legitimate presidents, and legitimate threats to democracy. Matt Gaetz is a legitimate creepy felon. Paul Gosar is a legitimate white nationalist. Liz Cheney is the most legitimate conservative in existence. This is legitimately where they stand.
Banks’ comments were echoed more diplomatically by Scalise (R-La.), the No. 2 Republican in the House. During an interview with Axios on Friday, he said of Cheney: “This idea that you just disregard President Trump is not where we are, and, frankly, he has a lot to offer still.”
And there you have it. “This idea that you just disregard President Trump… ” The words could just as easily come out of the mouths of the Russians, the North Koreans, or those hated Chinese. The GOP has made the Chinese the ultimate “threat” (other than Democrats) and yet they act exactly like the Chinese. Do not oppose the “party.” The party is Trump.
Matt Gaetz and Marjorie Taylor-Greene are about to go on tour to rip “RINOs.” These “RINOs” are only the people that opposed Trump. Oh, and this is for real, not a movie, this is real life. It is also terrifying. If they get power again, they will make the ultimate effort to truly transform this country into one with a lone governing structure – the party. We will be China, Russia, even North Korean. Don’t oppose “the one.”
Before you discount it as “they just lost,” look at alllll the moves being done in state legislatures to stomp down on voting.
