Just days after House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy gave a full-throated endorsement for Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) to keep her job, the House’s No. 3 Republican doubled down on her anti-Trump rhetoric. Now, some Trump allies are unhappy and privately griping about McCarthy’s move to protect her.
CNN reported over the weekend that “a stir-crazy Trump has spent the last two days livid and fuming to aides and allies about what he views as a betrayal by McCarthy for standing by Cheney and not punishing her for her vote to impeach.” This was before her appearance on “Fox News Sunday.”
After her Sunday interview, Donald Trump Jr. told Playbook he’s gearing up for a trip to Wyoming to take on Cheney. “I hear it’s lovely during primary season,” he said.
