GOP Congressman Matt Gaetz took blistering aim at colleague Liz Cheney over her shrill and vocal attacks on former President Trump, in particular her decision to vote for impeachment.

Gaetz traveled to Cheney’s home district in Wyoming and delivered an impassioned condemnation of her behavior as well as going on to encourage republicans to vote her out of office.

As The Hill reports:

Hundreds gathered outside the Capitol in Cheyenne, where the Florida Republican railed against the No. 3 Republican in the House just one day after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) called on members of the conference to stop attacking each other as divisions in the party become increasingly more evident in the post-Trump era…

“Our battle is no longer just Republican vs. Democrat, it’s not just red team versus blue team. Absolutely not — we’ve got to put America first. Those are the old battles of yesteryear. But people have always come to the great frontiers of Wyoming to win the future — that’s why I’m here,” he said in his speech.

“Liz Cheney is a lot like Congress — deeply unpopular and owned by special interests,” he added. “She’s taken more money from PACs than people. She works for them, not you.”

Gaetz repeatedly slammed her foreign policy stances, alleging she supports endless wars, calling her a globalist, and accusing her of being beholden to special interests.

Gaetz’s attack on Cheney comes as fissures have continued to form within the Republican party itself over the events of January 6th and the ensuing fallout, with anti-Trump Republicans like Cheney seeming to be on the losing end of the conflict.

Was Gaetz right to tell Republican voters to vote Cheney and those like her out of office over her anti-Trump views? Or are his actions needlessly divisive in a time when Republicans should be united in opposing the radical actions of a Biden Presidency?

He will be a top contender in the future, that is for sure. We need many young leaders like Matt to build our movement.

There are two TURN-COAT RINOS in Michigan that need to go: Peter Meijer (newly elected), and Fred Upton who has been in office for way too long (Term Limits!). They both voted for Pres. Trump’s Impeachment! Keep them in mind…

Maybe Kristi Noam for President in 2024. She will then run against Kamala Harris. Gaetz could be her VP.

Absolutely, RINOs OUT OF OF CONGRESS. I have vowed to stop donating to GOP, because of RINOs. Clean up their act, and I will donate again. Thanks to Trump, the RINOs have been flushed out as to who they really are. WE THE PEOPLE are the ones in charge. They work for us.

Same here, also. I have emailed the RNC about my choice and decision, but have not heard anything from them. Perhaps if all of us who feel this way would email, text, or even write a letter, the RNC might get the message.

I have emailed my senator and the RNC and told them that they won’t get any of my money until I see that they are working for us.

Couldn’t agree more. The party…even the good ones were lazy letting Trump do all the work but the rhinos made it worse. We can’t let our country continue the pathway of communism. 42 executive orders in 10 days making a mockery of America now …that’s what we got. It’s stand up or just comply!?

Trump hasn’t started any wars in four years. Liz Cheney is hacked off because her pocket money has been stopped, as a result, from Halliburton, her Dad’s company, who had a large share of the rebuilding contracts in Iraq – twice. So if Congress isn’t bombing and laying waste other countries, there are no rebuilding contracts available for Halliburton to pick up. QED. That’s why she opposes President Trump at every opportunity. That’s politics for you.
