The consequence was broadly anticipated and never stunning. Trump and his allies had been so determined to defeat Cheney that they had been caught utilizing an illegal fundraising scheme to dump money into Wyoming to use against Cheney.
Cheney’s nice crimes within the eyes of Trump had been that she denounced him, supported impeachment, and worst of all agreed to serve on the 1/6 Committee ensuring that it would be bipartisan.
As Rep. Adam Kinzinger said earlier on Tuesday evening on MSNBC, “This is sending a very strong message that this isn’t your dad’s Republican Party anymore. This is not a party that’s committed to truth, it’s a party that’s committed to conspiracy.”
Trump and his supporters will rejoice, however what did they actually win? Trump has kicked one of many few remaining federally elected Republicans who’re prepared to inform the reality out of the celebration.
Congratulations Republicans, you’ve taken one other step in your path to cultdom. Liz Cheney can be high quality. She is going to proceed to combat to revive the Republican Celebration to being a sane conservative celebration guided by fact.
The celebration of Lincoln, Ike, Reagan, and even Bush is useless. The Republican Celebration has been rebranded with Trump.
Liz Cheney misplaced an election, however the Republican Celebration has misplaced itself.
