Since Donald Trump’s election loss in November of last year, Republicans have gone in one of two directions. Mitch McConnell has tried to move the party forward, saying Trump lost and hurt the party. Kevin McCarthy has remained as loyal as ever, toadying to Trump at every chance.
As a result, McCarthy’s congress has been more Team Trump than the senate has. Former number 3 House Republican Liz Cheney was replaced with Elise Stefanik. And during a Sunday appearance on Fox News, Steve Scalise refused to admit that Biden had won the election. Later in the day, Cheney slammed the number 2 Republican in the House.
When asked by Wallace whether the election was stolen from Trump, Scalise hemmed and hawed refusing to answer the question. A clip of the segment was shared widely online.
Cheney, sharing a copy of the clip, wrote, “Millions of Americans have been sold a fraud that the election was stolen. Republicans have a duty to tell the American people that this is not true. Perpetuating the Big Lie is an attack on the core of our constitutional republic.”
