Kevin McCarthy’s epic flip-flop on Liz Cheney

 

Republicans ousted Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney for being critical of former President Trump’s role in the Capitol riot — but weren’t many of them doing the same thing back in January? In this latest episode of The Point, CNN’s Chris Cillizza explains why many Republicans, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, have flip-flopped and left Cheney on an island.

Isreal is now being bombed from all sides / Russia now have troops on the border with Ukraine..battle for Crimea is imminent /china is threatening Taiwan and its neighbours and also our warships/N Korea is testing its nuclear weapons again/Iran is free from its sanctions restarted its nuclear programme and is threatening America again / our southern border is a humanitarian disaster..here’s Biden’s answer.. its fine …Harris newer .. hehe he..tell me DO YOU MISS TRUMP YET ? Lots of us do

  1. Kevin Mccarthy : when I Say something actually I don’t Say anything which means I don’t want to Say anything because that’s how I Say something and right now I don’t know what I am Saying.

  2. You know what amazes me, do their constituents really not see these lies? These flip flops, the hypocrisy?

    3. @Lanuiiohu Sukikiya Yep, program is stuck in a loop. This is why you buy better bot programs, kids.

    4. Again we are talking Politicians People that have one actual agenda staying in office! They will say anything to get there and also to stay in the office.

  3. How does KM look at himself in the mirror, let alone the two mirrors he needs for his two-faced life. Simple can’t decide where to park his soul.

    1. @Clyde Crail I guess you will see how that works out for you(believing the accusations not buying my bridge!)

    2. @joandollie Doyle we shall see.
      But if the fact that the election officials in Maricopa County, AZ deleted all the voter data from the machines and haven’t given the passwords and routers to the auditors is any indicator I would say the democrats are guilty of stealing the election.

    3. Where do all Politian’s park there soul they all are after one thing that is to stay in office and collect those benefits!

    4. @Lanuiiohu Sukikiya Please explain President Biden’s gasoline policy.
      Where, when, and how did ‘he cheat?

  4. Any group of people held together by cruelty, greed and hate will turn on each other.

    1. *TRUMP DIDN’T GIVE THE DEEP STATE THE WARS THEY WANTED IN SYRIA AND UKRAINE, BUT BIDEN IS DUMBER THAN BUSH AND NOBODY WILL FIGHT A WAR FOR HIM.*

    2. CNN hiding Biden’s Fail Gasoline Policy. Anyone Still Kissing cheater Biden & CNN’s rear ?

    3. What Party is trying to stay in power for 100 years? HR1, Sound familiar? I think the fascist tried it. Of course it did not last but there was a very big war to end that 100 year Reich!

    1. *TRUMP DIDN’T GIVE THE DEEP STATE THE WARS THEY WANTED IN SYRIA AND UKRAINE, BUT BIDEN IS DUMBER THAN BUSH AND NOBODY WILL FIGHT A WAR FOR HIM.*

    2. @Clarence Spangle There is no “Deep State” Jesus Christ you Trump supporters will believe anything. It’s funny how you guys worship Trump. He was a life long Democrat that ran as a Republican and destroyed the Republican Party. I hate what he has done to the Republican Party. You all fell for the con. It’s truly sad.

    3. @Willie Dynamite TRUMP DIDN’T GIVE THE DEEP STATE THE WARS THEY WANTED IN SYRIA AND UKRAINE, BUT BIDEN IS DUMBER THAN BUSH AND NOBODY WILL FIGHT A WAR FOR HIM.

    1. @Clarence Spangle Why would anyone go to war for any other man? That’s gay. Not that there’s anything wrong with being gay.

    2. @Squiggly Doo TRUMP DIDN’T GIVE THE DEEP STATE THE WARS THEY WANTED IN UKRAINE AND SYRIA… HA HA . . .

    1. *TRUMP DIDN’T GIVE THE DEEP STATE THE WARS THEY WANTED IN SYRIA AND UKRAINE, BUT BIDEN IS DUMBER THAN BUSH AND NOBODY WILL FIGHT A WAR FOR HIM.*

    2. Why are you insulting Beldar, Prymaat, and their two children this way? Is this an attack on Remulak itself?

    1. @Your Master so they are putting whatever results they want online? Or showing only the votes they want to?

    2. @Belly Dancer Em they are showing each person at the audit with a separate camera livestream since the beginning of the audit because they knew democrats would cry about the truth coming out!

    3. Have you heard the Routers have mysteriously had data deleted while in the custody of the Chairman of the Board of elections! Now what does that look like?

  5. McCarthy asked for a voice vote…and denied an anonymous vote on Cheney’s removal. That should tell you everything you need to know.

    1. Exactly…is there even a tally of yay vs nay? I haven’t heard of any, only that she was voted out.

    2. Kevin Offutt Oh it’s unanimous, I think. Def large majority. McCarthy knew that by having them put their names to it they would fall in line. He was not able to guarantee that had they voted anonymously!

  6. The buck stops with “we the people” who allow politicians to conduct themselves in this manner.

  7. I have a feeling when this is all over and the smoke clears Liz will be saying “Broke into the wrong God Damn rec room didn’t you, You Bastard”

    1. A lot of similarities between these GOP worms and the Tremors ones. Big, dumb, and prehistoric.

  8. The really shocking part of all this is that the GQP actually thinks that it has a message!. No self-awareness whatsoever with these people.

  9. Investing in crypto now should be in every wise individuals list, in some months time you’ll be ecstatic with the decision you made today.

    1. Believe me he’s the best when it comes to Cryptocurrency trading, your profit is assured.
