There are no Trump moderates: new GQP #3 Stefanik lies about unemployment numbers

Pure propaganda with more Big Lies for the Big Liar. The Trumpian alternative universe is touted in Elise Stefanik’s opening speech as the new GOP Conference Chair. LOL about “the far left, radical socialist policies of President Joe Biden and Speaker Nancy Pelosi.” In comparison with Liz Cheney, she’s an opportunistic seditionist toadie, and not even an authentic conservative.

Miller goes on to say that Cheney was removed as House Republican Conference chair not because she isn’t conservative enough, but for refusing to promote Trump’s lie that the 2020 election was stolen from him because of widespread voter fraud.

“Cheney’s ouster is about one thing, and one thing only: Liddle Donny Trump’s feelings,” Miller explains. “Liddle Donny couldn’t take the fact that ‘Sleepy Joe’ wiped the floor with him in November. So, he perpetrated the Big Lie about how the election was stolen to save face. If the losing candidate had been someone with integrity, with the manhood, to admit that they lost and put the country ahead of their own ego, then Cheney would still be in leadership — and we could all have moved on to arguing about fiscal restraint.”

Miller points out that GOP presidential candidates of the past, unlike Trump, had no problem conceding defeat when they lost an election, and the video shows images of McCain and 1964 GOP presidential nominee Barry Goldwater. And Miller slams Stefanik’s willingness to promote Trump’s lies as shameless opportunism. The ex-Republican notes that he worked with Stefanik after the election “autopsy” of 2012, when President Barack Obama was reelected and defeated GOP nominee Mitt Romney — now a U.S. senator via Utah — and he stresses that the Stefanik of 2021 is radically different from the Stefanik he knew back then.

“Elise has been a moderate, neocon, establishment Republican who voted with Trump less than Cheney — just 78 % of the time,” Miller stresses. “I worked with her on the Republican Party ‘autopsy’ in 2012 that argued we need to make the party more welcoming to marginalized groups. During the 2016 campaign, she was so grossed out by Trump that she couldn’t even bring herself to say his name.”
