“Until last week, many party leaders and consultants thought they could preach the Constitution while winking at QAnon. They can’t,” Sasse wrote. “The GOP must reject conspiracy theories or be consumed by them. Now is the time to decide what this party is about.”
Sasse also criticized House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) for not disavowing Taylor Greene’s campaign and called the freshman lawmaker “cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs.”
“During her campaign, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy had a choice: disavow her campaign and potentially lose a Republican seat, or welcome her into his caucus and try to keep a lid on her ludicrous ideas. McCarthy failed the leadership test and sat on the sidelines,” Sasse opined.
Taylor Greene stated this month that she plans to bring articles of impeachment against Biden the day after his inauguration.
Sasse acknowledged her plan, hitting the Georgia Republican: “She’ll keep making fools out of herself, her constituents, and the Republican Party,” he said.
The Nebraska lawmaker concluded, stating that in order to play a “constructive part” in America’s future, the GOP must “repudiate the nonsense that has set our party on fire,” and “rebuild itself” by offering a “genuine answer to the frustrations of the past decade.”
