House GOP leader says he backs ousting Cheney from No. 3 job

Source: AP

By HOPE YEN

WASHINGTON (AP) — Top House Republican Kevin McCarthy on Sunday publicly endorsed Rep. Elise Stefanik for the post of No. 3 leader, cementing the party conference’s support of the Donald Trump loyalist over Rep. Liz Cheney, an outspoken critic of the former president for promoting discredited claims that the 2020 election was stolen.

House Republicans could vote as early as Wednesday to remove Cheney, the highest-ranking woman in the Republican leadership and daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, and replace her with Stefanik, whose ascension has received Trump’s backing.

Asked in an interview on Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures” whether he supported Stefanik, R-N.Y., for the job of Republican Conference chair, McCarthy responded: “Yes, I do.”

“We want to be united in moving forward, and I think that is what will take place,” he said in response to a question about whether he had the votes to oust Cheney, R-Wyo.

3. I find it funny the are quibbling over spot number 3. Lol

I mean who is number 3 in the democratic side? See. Point taken. Seems like a waste of time for an insignificant position. Republicans are just weird.

6. The moderate GOP foolishly think their fascist party is salvageable

Cheney, romney, murkowski...they are hopelessly small in number but cant seem to accept the fact their party has gone off the deep end.

Just for future reference. Right-wingers with no respect for history call it the 'Democrat' party.

26. She's quite conservative like her Dad

they are typical Republicans. The others these days are twisted by the MAGA right wing and afraid of Trump's supporters. Liz Cheney doesn't fear them and probably doesn't care if she loses reelection in Wyoming or her leadership post in the House.

The Cheneys and Romneys of the GOP need to take their party back from the extremists.

8. Liz Cheney is being kicked out of leadership, but her party left her months ago

Republicans are splitting into a tiny traditional wing and an energized Anarchist Wing. I say that because that's what destroying the Rule of Law leaves us with - anarchy, insurrections, revolts, lack of logic.

I think this is the most serious schism since the Reformation. Logic, truth, law, order, community are being tossed. Soon only right wing people with assault guns will carry any weight.

20. She won't survive....

There aren't enough clowns in the car with a spine. They are ALL terrified of the cult and are willing to lick the shit stained boots of the orange shit face. These cowards ALL realize they are dead meat if they should ever cross their idol.

It may not be as bad as we think. After all, having stefanik exposed on a daily basis with her rabid, cult-culture zombie actions will show the country just how really fucked up the gQp party is now. She won't affect the 40% who make up the cult, but it's going to shake the last sane gop apples out of the tree.

"I've had it with ... I've had it with her. You know, I've lost confidence. ... Well, someone just has to bring a motion, but I assume that will probably take place."

Almost funny to watch. This spineless boot licker has no more control over his party in the House than a flea has when the dog scratches his ass.

23. And that's the LEAST of Kevin's problems

Cheney has access to evidence of every fling, fuck, flim-flam, and fast one every single one of these congresscritters has ever gotten away with.

Total Information Awareness, as Cheney liked to call it.

We'll probably be seeing interesting news about dimwit Kevin - and soon.

24. Wanna bet that the former guy is nagging McCarthy 24/7 to get rid of

Cheney because she stands up and speaks out against him. That former guy is pushing hard for this to once again, exact his revenge.
