GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) on Sunday compared the Republican Party to the Titanic amid an internal battle over Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) and the push to oust her from her leadership position.
When asked about the intraparty conflict by host John Dickerson on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Kinzinger said the GOP is “in the middle of this slow sink.”
“Right now, it’s basically the Titanic. We’re like, you know, in the middle of this slow sink. We have a band playing on the deck telling everybody it’s fine. And meanwhile, as I’ve said, you know, Donald Trump’s running around trying to find women’s clothing and get on the first lifeboat,” Kinzger said.
“And I think there’s a few of us that are just saying, ‘Guys, this is not good,’ not just for the future of the party, but this is not good for the future of this country,” he added.
Kinzinger also zeroed in on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s (R-Calif.) comments regarding former President Trump’s role in the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, adding that Cheney has been consistent.
“Liz Cheney is saying exactly what Kevin McCarthy said the day of the insurrection. She’s just consistently been saying it. And a few weeks later, Kevin McCarthy changed to attacking other people,” Kinzinger said.
He added that the Republican Party needs to have “an internal look and a full accounting as to what led to Jan. 6.”
Kinzinger, one of the 10 GOP House members to vote to impeach Trump on a charge of inciting an insurrection, voiced his support last week for Cheney, who also voted to impeach Trump in January.
The ignorance of the Never-Trumper Vichy Republicans continues to both amaze me and make me sick to my stomach.
What sort of bubble-living arrogance does one have to possess to believe that your Political Party would be better off to remain servants to the Opposition Party than to take back the Presidency and both Houses of Congress by giving the American People the common sense leadership that they want out of Washington?
According to a Suffolk University-USA Today Poll taken in February, Republicans would leave the GOP to follow former President Donald Trump to a third party, by a near 2-to-1 margin.
The professional politicians on both sides of the aisle up on Capitol Hill live in a bubble, totally and purposely oblivious from the wants and needs of the American Voters who gave them their cushy jobs.
When Donald J. Trump came down that golden escalator, along with his beautiful wife Melania, a loud thunderclap could be heard emanating from Capitol Hill and Democrat and Republican Headquarters in Washington, D.C.
That sound was the sound of the sphincters of all the “Keepers of the Washington Status Quo” slamming shut in unison.
You see, boys and girls, the Vichy Republicans in Washington had made a lot of money being “buds” (i.e. servants) with the Democrats.
Of course, they never won Presidential Elections, but, why should they care?
They were getting filthy rich from all of the stock tips and other perks which came from “reaching across the aisle”.
They knew that Trump was going to change all of that.
He was not coming to Washington to make money. In fact, he was not even going to take a salary.
He could not be bought.
And, by the way, that is just one of the reasons that Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, and the rest of the Never-Trumpers among the Republican Elite hate our Former President so much.
He refused to take their money and play their games.
He would rather hold a MAGA Rally and speak directly to thousands of average Americans, that to attend some political soiree full of the Washington Elite.
As shown by the above polls and others which have had similar results, the American People have had enough of the tone-deaf spineless Vichy Republicans.
They want someone who will listen to and stand up for them.
Hence, the results of all of the polls on this subject.
That is why Sen. Mitch McConnell was so upset after Trump was acquitted in the last Shampeachment.
The Republican Elite know that these polls are true.
And, they are afraid of the “Deplorables” (me and you).
