House Republicans met earlier Wednesday to vote to remove Liz Cheney from her leadership position.
Cheney was the third-ranking Republican in the House GOP Caucus.
Bitter Liz Cheney lashed out at Trump and his voter base which happens to be well over 80 million Americans.
“I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office,” Cheney said after getting booted from her leadership position.
Cheney attacked President Trump for his continued belief the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him and she threw a barb at McCarthy for “not standing up for the rule of law and for allowing democracy to be undermined.”
McCarthy was quick to appease Cheney and entertain her assertion that the 2020 election was free and fair.
Hours after Liz Cheney was booted from GOP conference chair, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says this gem:
“I don’t think anybody is questioning the legitimacy of the presidential election. That’s all over with. We are sitting here with the president today,” Frank Luntz’s BFF McCarthy said.

The overwhelming majority of Republican voters believe the 2020 election was stolen through a massive Democrat vote fraud operation.
So why is McCarthy so out of touch with the GOP base?
Earlier this month Fox News host Tucker Carlson dropped a bombshell on the GOP establishment and revealed GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy was renting a room from liberal pollster Frank Luntz.
“So now you know why the Republican party listens to Frank Luntz and not you,” Tucker said.
