Stefanik voted into House GOP leadership, replacing Cheney

Source: Washington Post




House Republicans chose Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) on Friday to fill the leadership post recently occupied by Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), according to GOP aides, replacing a harsh critic of former president Donald Trump with a lawmaker who has become one of his staunchest defenders.

The Friday morning vote capped a tumultuous week for the party, which has established support for Trump’s false claims about the 2020 presidential election as a defining issue, and those who challenge his falsehoods have found themselves exiled.

Stefanik moved quickly to lock down support for the No. 3 spot in House GOP leadership when it became clear last week that Cheney would lose the job because she continued to challenge Trump’s unfounded assertion that the election was stolen and blame him for inciting the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. She was formally ousted on Wednesday.

Stefanik pitched herself as a unifying candidate who will focus on pushing the House Republican message and focus on attacking the Biden administration’s policies, while standing by Trump’s election claims. “I know firsthand the discipline and message it takes to fight back against the biased national media and the entire Democrat and Far-Left infrastructure,” Stefanik said Wednesday in a letter to colleagues officially announcing her candidacy.

1. One stupid, dangerous woman

She is on the House Armed Services Committee, the Committee on Education and Labor, and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

Intelligence? Spare me. I am not in her district (my "rep" is even worse here in Up-State NY, if you can imagine that). but...

7. She isn't stupid.

She's ambitious and unscrupulous. She wants Power.

And she'll get it. Trump won't run with Pence next time; he'll pick a woman just like Stefanik (if he doesn't pick Don Jr. or Ivanka).

9. I don't think Trump will run in 2024.

Even if he did, he becomes less relevant by the day. People have short attention spans and by 2024 we’ll be having to worry about DeSantis most likely, or if the fever breaks, Liz Cheney.

10. I understand your meaning.

But I would postulate that anyone with any maturely developed intelligence,(and there are different kinds of intelligence, of course),would not hold the views she does, or pretend to hold them or behave in such an inhumane manner... which pretty much greatly expands on the usually accepted meaning of intelligence.

BUT, I understand exactly what you mean... In that sense, yes.. she is 'intelligent...'

2. Honestly I think the GOP hopes for opportunity in NY

after the Cuomo fallout. They've hired a mouth.

4. They are manipulating the chessboard

3. StefaniQ pitched herself as a unifying candidate

“I know firsthand the discipline and message it takes to fight back against the biased national media and the entire Democrat and Far-Left infrastructure,” Stefanik said


Unifying ??? #trumpsfangirl is at it again. Hypocrisy at it's most blatant.

5. She's such a fake

She started out more moderate but saw her rural district love Trump so much so she went hard right.

8. GOP pivots from neoconstipation to fascinista

Either they'll implode or we're looking at another civil war. There is no compromise, no rule of law, no checks and balances, just good old fascioned fascism.

11. Looking forward to Stefanik's abject debasement and humiliation.

As befits a brain-dead trump worshipper.

13. This is what her constituents in my neck-of-the-woods think of Stefanik. These went up in February:
