On Wednesday, former President Donald Trump took a victory lap after House Republicans kicked Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo) from leadership.
A blistering statement by Former President Trump directed at ousted Republican leader Liz Cheney saying, “She is a warmonger whose family stupidly pushed us into the never-ending Middle East Disaster.”
“Liz Cheney is a bitter, horrible human being. I watched her yesterday and realized how bad she is for the Republican Party. She has no personality or anything good having to do with politics or our Country. She is a talking point for Democrats, whether that means the Border, the gas lines, inflation, or destroying our economy.
She is a warmonger whose family stupidly pushed us into the never-ending Middle East Disaster, draining our wealth and depleting our Great Military, the worst decision in our Country’s history. I look forward to soon watching her as a Paid Contributor on CNN or MSDNC!”
Trump also dismissed Cheney as a “talking point for Democrats,” suggesting she was a distraction from issues like the border and economy.
The ousted Liz Cheney didn’t go quietly when she was officially ousted from Republican leadership this morning via a voice vote. Cheney immediately came out with guns blazing, saying, “I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office.” She made it clear that she is targeting Trump to make sure he doesn’t win in 2024. Cheney is visibly bitter and uses the fake news pumped out by the lapdog media to tarnish Trump’s reputation.

Cheney spoke on the House floor yesterday spewing rhetoric and anti-Trump talking points:
“Remaining silent and ignoring the lie emboldens the liar,” says GOP Rep. Liz Cheney, defiant on the eve of a vote that may determine her political future.

President Trump previously called on Republicans to “rid themselves” of Cheney:
“The Republicans in the House of Representatives have a great opportunity today to rid themselves of a poor leader, a major Democrat talking point, a warmonger, and a person with absolutely no personality or heart. As a representative of the Great State of Wyoming, Liz Cheney is bad for our Country and bad for herself. Almost everyone in the Republican Party, including 90% of Wyoming, looks forward to her ouster—and that includes me!”
He endorsed Elise Stefanik as the new leader:
The House GOP has a massive opportunity to upgrade this week from warmonger Liz Cheney to gifted communicator Elise Stefanik. Elise has intelligence, an endorsement from American Patriot Brandon Judd and the National Border Patrol Council, she has an A+ from the NRA, and she loves our Veterans. We need someone in Leadership who has experience flipping districts from Blue to Red as we approach the important 2022 midterms, and that’s Elise! She knows how to win, which is what we need!
