On Saturday, Meghan McCain ripped her fellow Republicans who working to get Liz Cheney out of a leadership role within the party.
Donald Trump is no longer in charge, but his shadow looms large in the GOP. And instead of pushing forward with new ideas, many Republicans are focused on punishing the few lawmakers who were willing to stand up to Donald Trump. Cheney, who voted to impeach Trump, is high up on that list.
McCain took issue with a story from the Hill where an unnamed GOP official was quoted as saying, “She is alienating herself from the conference, and I have to imagine if she doesn’t resign there will be a new vote in the near future and the result will be lopsided in the opposite direction of what it was before.”
The View host shot back, “But they voted before and she had overwhelming support to stay in her leadership position!! What an insufferable group of sausage fest snowflakes these people are. What exactly do you think you’re gonna do to Liz Cheney.”
But they voted before and she had overwhelming support to stay in her leadership position!!

Cheney wasn’t the only Republican under attack from other Republicans this weekend. Mitt Romney was continuously booed while speaking at a Utah GOP Convention. He told the crowd, “You can boo all you like. I’ve been a Republican all of my life. My dad was the governor of Michigan and I was the Republican nominee for president in 2012.”
