The embattled daughter of former Vice President- Never Trumper, Dick Cheney, fled to the media after a humiliating public defeat on Wednesday to soothe her wounds with a friendly audience as her political colleagues kicked her out of her leadership position. Mins after being kicked out, she admitted it was the Trump curse that got here there.
“I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office,” Wyoming US House Member Liz Cheney, as she was removed from her leadership position as the chair of the House Republican Conference.
“We have seen the danger of Trump,” Cheney said, moments after the Republican party removed her from her position for being obsessed with President Donald J. Trump and his agenda’s obvious growing influence on Republicans.
The far left was very, very upset over the outing of Cheney:
Far-left member of Congress, Ted Lieu, who is obsessed with Trump, posted a pouty rebuke over the change in the guard of the Republican party in DC, hating the idea that they may prefer to represent the will of the American people and not his own political paymasters.

Even embattled former News Anchor, known as the Grandfather of Fake News chimed in:
The fact that it was a voice vote to eject Cheney is all you need to know about the status of courage in the modern Republican Party.

Cheney admitted with her pouting that it is, in fact, the influence of President Trump that caused her demise. Trump’s policies resonate so well with the American people that even the notorious weak Republicans have taken notice that the way forward to winning is Trump’s policies of Nationalism and Populism, which continue to have a solid -fighting base with the voting public.
Trump hammered Cheney in the days following up to the vote against her by releasing scathing posts from his “Desk of 45 Saving America” account.
“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!” Trump wrote.
“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 wrote.
WHAT A DIFFERENCE A COUPLE OF MONTHS MAKES
It is noteworthy that just a couple of months ago, when Cheney was under similar pressure, and there was a secret vote, Republicans chose to keep Cheney. What obviously changed is due to the popularity of Trump and his policies, politicians clearly understand now that “Trumpism,” no matter how hard they try to beat it back, is not going away.
