McCarthy told Fox and Friends, “I have heard from members who are concerned about their ability to do the work as conference chairpersons and carry out the message. We all have to work as a unit if we can win the majority. Remember, majorities aren’t given, they’re earned. And that is the message about the future. Joe Biden fight what he did on that frontier by making it insecure and what’s coming his way, exactly what he’s doing here against small businesses, not opening schools, not bringing us back to work, healthy again, again normal. That is the message we should be talking about. I have not heard any members concerned about their impeachment vote. It’s more about work ability and what our best step forward is that we can all work together instead of attacking each other. “
According to Kevin McCarthy, the problem is Liz Cheney because she lives in reality and defends herself against the big lie that Trump stole the election. If Republicans lose in 2022, it will be because Cheney did not join the cult but tried to fight for reality and democracy.
The Republican Party is no longer a political party. It’s a cult and infidels are punished, removed and blamed for all failures, but there is no home for facts and democracy in this GOP.
