Chuck Todd And Dan Crenshaw Clash Over Cheney Drama: I'm 'Not Going To Take The Bait'
It amazes me how the left has taken a sudden interest in life-long Rhino Liz Cheney. The mainstream media seems hell-bent on keeping the fires stoked even though Cheney has already been voted out of her leadership role in the GOP.
The GOP is working to unify the party and Cheney was too busy tearing down members from her own party— essentially distracting everyone from the main objective to win back the majority in the Senate. Removing her, was a strategic move to ensure the party could move forward in unison.
However, the media would love their viewers to believe that Cheney's removal had more to do with her vote to impeach President Trump.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) talks to NBC "Meet The Press" host Chuck Todd about rejecting "black and white thinking" when it comes to former President Trump's role in the Republican Party going forward.
"Look, I do not think Trump is the devil and I won't say that. I don't think he's Jesus either. I'm a rational human being about this," Crenshaw said. "And I refuse to allow this drama to engulf us."
"You're not going to get the colleagues who believe in that kind of stuff to apologize to you or agree with you... I stand by everything I've ever said and done and that's all I can speak for."
"There’s no point in re-litigating some of these things," he said. "I believe that you're not going to excommunicate a former president, right?"
“She refuses to apologize, which is fine, I don’t think she should. But, then she demands that everyone else does,” he said, pointing out that House Republicans held a vote in February on whether to keep Cheney in her position, to which she won “overwhelmingly.”
“This is not the subject that I’m asked about,” Crenshaw explained. “I get asked about why is there rising inflation, why is there a border crisis, what is going on in the middle east, why can’t we get gas, what is happening to our energy infrastructure, why can’t I hire people, why are they getting paid by the government to stay at home instead of come to work? These are things that really affect people, not this internal drama.”
