Liz Cheney perfectly captured the choice Republicans now have to make on Donald Trump

Published

Speaking at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, the Wyoming Republican said:

“The reality we face today as Republicans – as we consider the choice before us – we have to choose. Because Republicans cannot be both loyal to Donald Trump and loyal to to the Constitution.”

That call will almost certainly fall on deaf ears in Cheney’s Republican conference, which ousted her from the party leadership earlier this year because she voted to impeach Trump for her action (and its inaction) on January 6, 2021.

But, it’s worth unpacking Cheney’s quote regardless — because there’s real truth to it.

Start with what it takes to support Trump these days.

The former president has made belief – against fact – in his stolen election claims a litmus test for the party. If you’re not willing to at least pay lip service to his conspiracy theories, vote mules! deaths ! – you are rejected as a RINO (Republican in name only) who doesn’t care enough about the country to fight for it.

Then consider what we know about Trump’s actions in the aftermath of the 2020 election:

He aggressively pressured swing state election officials to overturn the results or secure more votes for him. “I just want to find 11,780 votes,” Trump told Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on a call. He knew those gathered at the Jan. 6 “Stop the Steal” rally were armed and dangerous before he delivered a speech in which he urged them. to “fight like hell” or risk losing their country. “They’re not here to hurt me,” Trump told his aides of the crowd. President’s refusal to overturn Electoral College tally that showed Joe Biden winning comfortably. Justice had “significant concerns” about the 2020 election. these things because he couldn’t accept that he hadn’t won. He had no proof – just the vague feeling that he should have won and he didn’t do it in a way or another – other than he just thinks (Note: Biden actually got just over 81 million votes; Trump got 74 million).

Against all of this is the Constitution – the country’s founding document – which states that there is no role, other than a ceremonial role, for the vice president in the counting of votes in the Electoral College. It also makes clear that a peaceful transition of power in which the person with the most electoral votes becomes president is at the heart of American democracy.

As Barack Obama said in his farewell speech in January 2017:

“In 10 days, the world will witness a hallmark of our democracy… [Audience boos] No, no, no, no, no – the peaceful transfer of power from one freely elected president to another. I promised President-elect Trump that my administration would ensure the smoothest transition possible, just as President Bush did for me. Because it is up to all of us to ensure that our government can help us meet the many challenges we still face. »

The simple fact is, you can’t a) call yourself a constitutional conservative and b) support what Trump has done — and is doing — trying to undermine not just the 2020 election, but the broader democratic experience.

It’s an either/or question. There is no place for tramps.
