If this doesn’t give Kevin McCarthy a stroke, probably nothing will. Liz Cheney just took on Donald Trump, in no uncertain terms. Trump issued one of press releases, through his PAC, this time just one sentence: “The Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020 will be, from this day forth, known as THE BIG LIE!” Cheney pushed back.
The 2020 presidential election was not stolen. Anyone who claims it was is spreading THE BIG LIE, turning their back on the rule of law, and poisoning our democratic system.

When Mitt Romney got booed in Utah, at the local GOP convention, he said, “Aren’t you embarrassed? That was the right question. The Republican party should indeed be embarrassed by what it has become and by the fact that loyalty to the Big Lie is the litmus test — and most of the GOPers are too terrified to go against Trump. After Romney’s reception a few days ago, we can’t blame them.
Look for this to heat up.
