US Republicans have voted to oust a top lawmaker, Liz Cheney, from her leadership post over her criticism of former President Donald Trump.
The Wyoming lawmaker, daughter of ex-US Vice-President Dick Cheney, has held the third-ranking post in the House of Representatives since 2019.
On Tuesday she said her party could not stand for truth if it upheld Mr Trump’s false claims he won the 2020 election.
House Republicans will probably replace her this month with a Trump loyalist.
The move is seen as a sign Mr Trump’s grip on the party is stronger than ever six months after he lost the election.
Liz Cheney, the daughter of Republican Darth Vader, Dick Cheney, has been ousted for daring to call Trump out on his shameful legacy and carnival of deceit.
When Republican Royalty are being disposed like this, it’s proof the GoP have become a Cult.
Look at how crazy the average Republican has become…
…the Trump dystopia has activated a wave of QAnon paranoia and hate that has transformed the GoP into the GoQ.
It feels like a prequel to the Handmaid’s Tale.
