GOP gap set to widen

By John Kanelis /

I have this burning need to inform the Republican Party that booting out a conservative leader of the GOP House caucus only widens the divide between two factions within the party.

The Trump faction has its suck-up in the chair, Rep. Elise Stefanik. The establishment wing’s darling, Rep. Liz Cheney, has been cast aside.

The Trumpsters vs. The Establishment.

Let the battle commence. I am going to pull for The Establishment wing. It’s not that I am one of them. It is that the Trumpsters now are seeking to become poised to ruin the country, not to mention their political party.

The Trumpsters in the House, now led by Stefanik, are going to promote the Big Lie, that Trump lost the election via theft and vote fraud. They are lying their a**es off. They are continuing The Big Lie that Trump himself keeps alive.

They disgust me to no end.

As for Liz Cheney, she is far from my favorite House member. However, she voted to impeach Trump after the then-POTUS incited the insurrection on Jan. 6. What’s more, she has continued to stand strongly behind her vote and has drawn the wrath of the Trumpsters with whom she serves.

The fight for control of the congressional Republican caucus ain’t ending. You go, Rep. Cheney.
