How deluded are RINO Republicans? Let’s check in with Rep. Tom Rice (RINO-SC). In an interview with ABC’s Jonathan Karl, Rice appears to be reluctant about the idea of having Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) as Speaker of the House, should the Republicans–as expected–take over the House after the November midterms. But guess who he thinks would be a “great speaker”? This is funny.
Here’s the shot.
Rice, who was one of the few Republicans who voted to impeach President Donald Trump, claims Rep. Liz Cheney would be a good choice, “She’s a real Republican. I think she is very conservative and I think she’s a fearless leader.”
That’s delusional, and shows how far gone these folks are. First of all, Cheney has thrown in with the Democrats on the compromised Jan. 6 Committee. So, she’s one of the most unpopular RINOs out there. Not just because of her take on Trump, but because she’s attacking Republicans and helping the Democrats. On top of that, she hasn’t even made any attempt at all to reach out to the locals in Wyoming, not caring a whit what they think of her and treating them like their opinion doesn’t matter.
That tends not to go over well. She’s 30 points behind her opponent, Trump-endorsed Harriet Hageman for the August primary so she’s about to lose spectacularly. Finally, having kicked her to the curb and booted her from any leadership position previously, there is no way Republicans would vote for her for Speaker after they take back the House.
That thought pattern from Rice just shows how unhinged the thought is. At a point when Republicans should be concentrating on doing all they can to help defeat the Democrats in November, instead, these remaining RINOs are doing all they can to fuel the Democrats.
Not only is Cheney about to get wiped, but here’s the chaser. So is Rice, if a recent Trafalgar Poll is any indication, with his Trump-endorsed opponent having almost double his numbers and a double-digit lead.
South Carolina state Rep. Russell Fry has a double-digit lead on Rep. Tom Rice (R-SC) in one poll as the embattled incumbent campaigns to keep his congressional district, which spans from Grand Strand to Pee Dee, after voting to impeach then-President Donald Trump.
More than two-fifths (42%) of likely Republican primary voters would support Trump-endorsed Fry, a former South Carolina General Assembly majority chief whip, if the June 14 election were held today, according to a Trafalgar Group ballot test of the state’s 7th District published on Wednesday.
That’s why Karl trumpeting this thing that’s never going to happen, as though it’s some stunning truth is also hilarious and a sign of how hard up they are to attack Trump, even now.
