House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) suggested on Fox & Friends that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) was backing censorship when she said former President Donald Trump shouldn’t lead the Republican party.
Said McCarthy: “The idea that a Republican would join in with cancel culture is wrong, it’s beyond just having a difference of opinion.”
Playbook: “Such a jab doesn’t bode well for GOP unity in the leadership ranks. Typically, Republicans use this attack of ‘censorship’ on Democrats — not their own. Plus, Cheney has not called for Trump to be silenced, only said that he shouldn’t lead the party.”
