WASHINGTON, DC – It seems as though GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel is yet again ostracizing herself from her Republican colleagues by way of who she’s saddling up with. In this latest instance, McDaniel proclaimed that she still views Rep. Liz Cheney as a Republican – despite the Wyoming GOP having voted to no longer recognize Rep. Cheney as such.
McDaniels is clearly the niece of Mitt Romney, as the lack of a spine seems to run in the family.
At this point, there’s hardly any debate among the reasonably-minded that Rep. Cheney is not a Republican. At this point, Rep. Cheney is a Democrat that just has an (R) attached to her name when being reported on in mainstream news sites.
Needless to say, the Trump base in Wyoming were more than happy to see the state GOP rebuke Rep. Cheney for her essentially playing on the other political team. And yet, GOP Chairwoman McDaniel’s response to such was that despite Rep. Cheney’s state likening her to a leper – she still thinks the RINO is part of the Republican party.
On November 18th, Chairwoman McDaniel was speaking at the Christian Science Monitor breakfast in Washington, D.C., when she claimed that Rep. Cheney is “Obviously…still a Republican.” She then attempted to offer a halfhearted acknowledgement on why the Wyoming GOP decided to throw shade at Rep. Cheney.
“But I get from a state party standpoint when you have a congressperson or a senator who’s not supporting your state party,” she said, “who’s not talking about electing Republicans up and down the ballot. A state party is the most grassroots body that the state has. These are people who are running in their district committee, and they’re going to their county convention and they’re getting on their state committee, and they really represent where the party is in their state.
“So that was their choice to do that and then the voters will make a choice in the primary in Wyoming.”
If Chairwoman McDaniel really wanted to signal support for the Republican party, she should’ve clearly stated that she too doesn’t recognize Cheney as a Republican – but she didn’t. Thus, proving that she really takes after her uncle’s lack of vigor to stand up for the Republican party.
