Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) has reached her limit with Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and told the outgoing Wyoming congresswoman to “switch parties” to the Democrats.
Cheney got crushed in her GOP primary in Wyoming but has vowed to continue her anti-Trump crusade.
Several Republican lawmakers have been celebrating Cheney’s departure from Congress.
GOP members were outraged with Cheney after she refused to support Republicans in blocking the Democrats’ anti-police legislation.
Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) said: “The House was one vote away from defeating a Democrat anti-police bill, but Liz Cheney couldn’t be bothered to show up to vote.”

Greene said: “Liz Cheney is so committed to Joe Biden and the Democrats that she just intentionally skipped an anti-police vote that Republicans could have defeated.
“She clearly supports the Democrat war on police.
“Go ahead and switch parties Liz before you’re out of office.”

Cheney said recently:
“Those who are protecting Donald Trump elected leaders of my party are now willing to condemn FBI agents, Department of Justice officials and pretend that taking top secret SCI documents and keeping them in a desk drawer, in an office in Mar-a-Lago or in an unsecured location anywhere was somehow not a problem.”
She also called Trump “orange Jesus” in a speech she gave last week.
According to USA Today:
“Cheney, R-Wyo., speaking at American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank, recounted that on Jan. 6, before the attack on the Capitol, she was preparing remarks in the Republican cloakroom, where there were papers all around her.
“She said she asked a staffer what those papers were for since there were so many members coming in and signing them.
“The staffer told her they were objection sheets for members of the House to sign if they objected to election results.
“Cheney said one member came in and said, ‘the things we do for orange Jesus.’”
