Rep. Lance Gooden (R-TX) predicted Saturday that House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) will be thrown out of the House leadership by the end of May. Well, I predict she will be tossed out by the voters of Wyoming in 2022. She says that she will campaign on her impeachment vote against Trump every day. Who is more popular with Republican voters? There are very few hard-core Cheney voters but there are 75 million Trump voters. You do the math.
Cheney is racking up more and more enemies every day and while the Republicans can survive without her, if she is allowed to remain in a leadership position, many voters will rebel against the party. Their choice is clear. She has not only been critical of Trump but she has also become very critical of the Republican party after Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy defended her and let her keep her leadership position.
Cheney is also criticizing Republicans for reaching out to working-class Americans. Who knows why but they are the ones leading the charge for the Republican party so angering them might be a very bad career move. She is extremely unpopular in Wyoming and has little chance of surviving a primary challenge, especially since Trump will campaign against her. In fact, I think she should vote for her primary opponent and make it unanimous.
“Liz Cheney has promised she will campaign on impeaching Trump ‘every day of the week.’ Good luck with that, Liz! PREDICTION: she’ll be out of her GOP leadership role by month’s end!”

McCarthy told reporters last week:
“If you’re sitting here at a retreat that’s focused on policy, focused on the future of making American [sic] next-century, and you’re talking about something else, you’re not being productive.”
Banks wrote a memo to McCarthy contending that the Republican Party should focus on issues the working class considers important, such as immigration and trade.
Are The Democrats and Biden Against Israel?
Cheney called Banks’ memo “Neo-Marxist.”
In his interview with Axios, Banks said that Cheney’s comments have served as a distraction from Republican leadership that is trying to unite the conference and take back the majority during the 2022 midterms.
Banks said, “That’s what we got out of Liz Cheney, which doesn’t help us remain focused on that single goal.”
