Gaetz: If McCarthy doesn't hold a vote on Cheney the conference is a joke

“So it’s a bit ironic that Liz Cheney is less popular among Republicans than the Arab dictators that she wants to throw out of office,” Gaetz said.

He called on House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy — who met with Trump Thursday — to hold a vote to kick Cheney out of leadership.

“Kevin McCarthy needs to hold a vote on Liz Cheney, and if he doesn’t, the Republican conference is a total joke,” Gaetz said. “More than half of the Republican conference has said that this person does not speak for us. Now, you and I both know the Republicans basically have no power in Washington D.C. right now. The only power we have is to communicate and if the person we’ve designated to communicate for us as the conference chair doesn’t have the support of the majority of the conference, it is a total fiction you’ve created regarding the entire structure of leadership.”
