My colleague Mike Miller reported on TX Rep. Dan Crenshaw’s defense of WY Rep. Liz Cheney’s right to make an impeachment vote. Crenshaw did not necessarily agree with her, but he defended her right to have a differing viewpoint. Mike also gauged the temperature of Crenshaw’s defense among others in the Republican Party.
“So how did Crenshaw’s support of Cheney’s right to vote to impeach Trump — based on her “conscience,” she said, although Crenshaw disagreed with her vote — play among staunch supporters of President Trump? Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is a good place to start.
“Gaetz, who forcefully and emotionally called out the sheer hypocrisy of House Democrats during Impeaching Hearing Charade 2.0 on Wednesday was not happy with Crenshaw for defending Cheney.
“ ‘With all due respect to Rep. Crenshaw,’ Gaetz tweeted, ‘this is a minority view within the minority party.’ ”
Yeah, Gaetz is right. Sorry, not sorry, Dan: the anti-Trump sentiment is not going to fly in the GOP anymore. The United Colors of Trump have now saturated the fabric.
