Count President Biden among the many, many Americans befuddled by the Republican Party’s complete shift toward becoming the Party of Trump. “I don’t understand the Republicans,” the President said when asked about GOP in-fighting over the future of the No. 3 Republican, Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney. Cheney has become persona non grata in her own political party for her refusal to kowtow to former President Trump and for continuing to speak the truth and say the 2020 election was not stolen.
During an event Wednesday at the White House where he announced plans to provide $28.6 billion in relief to help the restaurant industry, Biden was asked what it says about Republicans that they want to oust Cheney simply because she’s embracing the truth about the election and doesn’t want to pretend the Capitol Insurrection didn’t happen. Here’s what the president had to say.
Biden went on to say that he believes America is better off with a healthy and functional Republican Party.
More than a few people on social media agreed with Biden’s assessment that the Republican Party is a full-fledged disaster, including those who used to consider themselves members of the Grand Old Party.
He’s absolutely right. I was a Republican for maybe half of my life. I don’t recognize what they’ve become. Granted, I’ve changed a lot as well, but they are just a disaster. It’s embarrassing.— ?? ?️?Kris ??? (@KrisL1026) May 5, 2021
