McCarthy and Cheney worlds apart after Florida retreatMcCarthy told a room full of reporters regarding Liz Cheney that "if you're sitting here at a retreat that's focused on policy, focused on the future of making America next-century, and you're talking about something else, you're not being productive." In response to their continued disagreement about the Jan 6 failed coup attempt, how the party's relationship with Trump should go, and the probe into the insane people on the right who are trying to overthrow our democracy.
In response to Trump not attending the Republican retreat MTG through her fellow republicans under the bus for not inviting Trump:
“Remember when Republicans lost the House in 2018 because a bunch of them distanced themselves from President Trump?” tweeted freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), who hosted a Mar-a-Lago fundraiser on Saturday. “Not inviting President Trump to the GOP retreat is the same stupid behavior. Funny how they don’t understand a record # of votes and support of any R President.”
Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy called on his conference to unite, but he and Rep. Liz Cheney are still at odds over former President Donald Trump.
