Rep. Liz Cheney voted with Trump over 92.9% of the time he was in office.
Rep. Elise Stefanik voted 77.7% with Trump
"She [Stefanik] voted against Trump’s singular legislative achievement — his 2017 tax reform bill — and against making his tax cuts permanent. She voted to block Trump from withdrawing from the Paris climate accords. She voted to condemn Trump for calling on the courts to invalidate the Affordable Care Act. She voted to overturn Trump’s emergency declaration at the southern border so he could fund the border wall, and then voted to override Trump’s veto of a bill that reversed his emergency declaration. Trump calls Cheney a “warmongering fool” who wants to “fight ridiculous, endless wars,” but Stefanik voted with Cheney to oppose Trump’s withdrawal of U.S. forces from Syria."
"Stefanik voted to certify the election results in Arizona (though not Pennsylvania)." --Marc Thiessen
Is Stefanik more conservative than Cheney?
No, Cheney has an 80 percent lifetime rating with Heritage Action for America compared with a 48 percent rating for Stefanik.
So what's going on? We can see that Cheney is more conservative than Stefanik. What's the difference here?
Trump values loyalty to himself rather than to conservative ideals, and Stefanik has shown herself to be be less of a supporter of Trump's policies, but a supporter of TRUMP HIMSELF, which to him is far more important.
It is what a cult of personality leader wants and demands from his followers. It's about him: Trump the malignant narcissist:
"This is not about ideology or public policy. It’s not even loyalty to Trumpism. It’s about loyalty to Trump. And even though Cheney supported Trump’s agenda in Congress, she must be purged because she supported impeachment and the certification of the election — and refuses to apologize for it." --Marc Thiessen
"One anonymous GOP House member told the Hill, “This isn’t about Liz Cheney wanting to impeach Donald Trump; this isn’t about Donald Trump at all. It’s about Liz Cheney being completely out of synch with the majority of our conference.” But it is Stefanik who is out of sync with the majority of the Republican conference on the issues. Cheney is being ousted by her Republican colleagues, and replaced by someone who opposed much of Trump’s agenda, for one reason and one reason only: because she is not sufficiently obeisant to the former president."--Marc ThiessenTrump cared no more about the pandemic nor national security than he did about tax reform or environmental regulation.
Trump who puts loyalty to himself over the good of the Republican Party is the same Trump who put Putin's flattery over the good of the country.
Trump who called up Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to demand that he "find" 11,780 votes is the same Trump who called Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to coerce him into smearing political rival Joe Biden.
The Big Lie that the election was stolen from him is just one more falsehood on top of the 30,000 false and misleading statements he has made since his administration began.
The "leadership" he is showing now from Mar-a-Lago is the "leadership" he showed his entire term. Trump didn't become the mendacious narcissist he is when he lost the election.
The Trump who demands loyalty to himself over loyalty to our Constitution and rule of law has been in front of our eyes for the past four years.
