Is he out of his mind?
Former Republican Governor John Kasich recently stated the he is against the removal of Liz Cheney from her position because her removal could make her “a martyr.”
CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer asked, “Governor Kasich, what do you make of this new reporting about this escalating rift within your party?”
Kasich responded saying, “What they don’t seem to calculate is if they create a martyr out of Liz Cheney, I’ll tell you what will happen, she’ll get her followers in the House. I always wondered when this was going to happen. When somebody was going to stand up and say enough of this nonsense, so they could take her down, they could swamp her down. They could remove her from this place. She’s not going to go away. There are like-minded people in the House, Republicans, and she could get a following, and she could be more trouble for them than she’s being right now by getting a group of people who say we’re not going along with your nonsense anymore.”
“We have a long way to go before this all plays out. Be careful when you take somebody out of a position like that that you’re not doing yourself ultimately more harm than good. She will have no constraints on what she will do going forward.”
