Liz Cheney cheers Kevin McCarthy removal, warns of Jim Jordan ascension
Former Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney welcomed Kevin McCarthy’s ouster as House speaker this week, castigating him as “unfit” for the role.
“Kevin McCarthy is absolutely unfit to be speaker,” Cheney, 57, said in remarks at the University of Minnesota Wednesday night.
When asked, Cheney said she would have joined the eight Republicans who backed ejecting McCarthy (R-Calif.) from his position had she still been in the House of Representatives.
Cheney also lauded House Democrats’ decision not to bail McCarthy out as “principled and honorable,” arguing that he eroded trust with them.
