McCarthy Claims No One Is 'Questioning the Legitimacy' of 2020 Election and Everyone Had the Same Response

McCarthy Claims No One Is 'Questioning the Legitimacy' of 2020 Election and Everyone Had the Same Response

On Wednesday, House Republicans voted to oust Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney of Wyoming from her House leadership position for not capitulating to former President Donald Trump's lie that the 2020 election was "stolen" by Democrats through widespread election fraud.

Cheney was one of the few Republican lawmakers to note then-President Trump's responsibility for the January 6 Capitol Riots with his rampant disinformation and constant violent rhetoric. Cheney voted to impeach him for inciting an insurrection and continues to refute his election conspiracy theories.

Hours after House Republicans voted to remove Cheney, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) emerged from an Oval Office meeting with President Joe Biden and Congressional leadership regarding the President's infrastructure bill.

McCarthy was met with questions regarding Cheney's ouster, and he made an absurd claim in the process.

Watch below.

McCarthy said:

"I don't think anybody is questioning the legitimacy of the presidential election. That's all over with. We are sitting here with the president today."

McCarthy's statement is heavily contradicted by reality.

First and foremost, the former President continues to smear the election as illegitimate, lying as recently as this past Monday that it was "the greatest Election Fraud in the history of our Country." Trump has claimed the election was fraudulent no fewer than five times in the past week alone.

People didn't hesitate to remind McCarthy of the election's most prominent objector.

Some even said that McCarthy claiming the election wasn't in dispute would make him vulnerable to Trump's wrath.

Trump's Republican supporters in Congress are standing by the former President's fantasies, with Republican Representative and prominent conspiracy theorist Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia casting doubt that Biden "really won" and absurdly claiming Trump was still her President. Congresswoman Lauren Boebert of Colorado implied that the election was "hacked" in a Monday tweet.
