Meghan McCain blasted Republicans for “shivving” Representative Liz Cheney because she supposedly won’t “debase herself to Cheeto Jesus.”
McCain delivered the diatribe during a Wednesday broadcast.
“Let’s cut the crap,” she said. “They’re shivving her for her … saying that the election wasn’t stolen and for refusing to debase herself to Cheeto Jesus.”
She accused House Minority Kevin McCarthy of intentionally saying “I’ve had it with her” on a hot mic during an off-camera moment on Fox & Friends.
Recent reports have indicated that Cheney (WY), the number three Republican in the House, could be ousted from her leadership role before the end of the month.
“Let’s cut the crap.” Meghan McCain accused House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of “intentionally” trashing Rep. Liz Cheney on a hot mic.

Meghan McCain’s ‘Cheeto Jesus’ Insult Wasn’t the Worst Thing She Said
Some of the latest reports indicate Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) may be the woman who replaces Cheney.
Stefanik has the support of Trump himself, along with Minority Whip Steve Scalise.
Rather than prop Stefanik up on her leadership credentials, McCain practically accused the GOP of using her on behalf of Trump.
“I feel very defensive of Liz Cheney,” a clearly shaken McCain said. “I promise you there’s going to be consequences.”
“Go ahead in this sausagefest of MAGA up on Capitol Hill!” she continued. “Pull her out and put another woman in who will do anything you want for President Trump.”
McCain then mocked Trump supporters: “The election wasn’t stolen … He’s Jesus.”

The View’s Token Conservative Had A Liberal-esque Meltdown
McCain seems unable to comprehend that “Cheeto Jesus” insults are just as reprehensible as anything Trump has ever mean-tweeted.
Not to mention the inability to understand that Cheney’s tenuous hold on her leadership role is less about Trump and more about her inability to move on and put the party first.
Get in formation!
Sick of the sausage fest on Capitol Hill coming for the most powerful Republican woman in congress because she’s daring not to bend the knee to a false idol. https://t.co/RVNQQkGJpm pic.twitter.com/KqnYjVz9ZL

Remember, it’s the same, as McCain says, “sausagefest of MAGA on Capitol Hill” that supported Cheney despite her impeachment vote back in February. They voted to keep her in the role of leadership, 145-61.
Since then, Cheney has refused to stop talking down to Trump supporters, accusing them of believing “the big lie” that the 2020 presidential election was stolen, has gone after colleagues in her own party who support Trump, and vowed to campaign on impeaching Trump “every day of the week.”
Liz Cheney has promised she will campaign on impeaching Trump ‘every day of the week.’
Good luck with that, Liz!
PREDICTION: she’ll be out of her GOP leadership role by month’s end!

Cheney fist bumps President Biden and seems unable to focus on defeating an administration that supports government funding of abortions, will be taxing the hell out of the American people, and has created a humanitarian crisis at the border.
Meghan McCain’s mom, meanwhile, works for that same administration.
And for some reason they think they can tell you that denouncing Trump – a man who fought to push conservative values as President – is the only way to show you’re a true Republican.
If being a Republican means siding with the Cheneys and McCains of the world, then it’s time for a new party.
Now is the time to support and share the sources you trust.
