#CheetoJesus trends as Meghan McCain gives Trump a nickname over Liz Cheney removal: ‘It. Was. Perfect’
'It’s the most asinine politics I’ve seen in a really really long time in a cacophony of asinine politics, she said
‘The View’ co-host Meghan McCain was not in a mood to mince her words while expressing her anger towards the Republican Party for turning on Representative Liz Cheney over her anti-Trump stance. On Wednesday, May 5, McCain branded the GOP a “sausagefest of MAGA” while calling the former president a “Cheeto Jesus.”
McCain said on ‘The View’: “What's going on is Liz Cheney was already, by the way, voted in January to stay in her position and overwhelmingly had support to stay when they tried to oust her before. What's happening is it's clear — I'll be a little crass — they're shivving her for her saying the election wasn't stolen and refusing to debase herself to Cheeto Jesus.”

The 36-year-old also went on to lash out at House Minority leader Kevin McCarthy, whom she accused of intentionally criticizing Cheney from a leaked hot mic on Tuesday, May 4. “I think she's got real problems. I've had it with her. You know, I've lost confidence,” McCarthy said to ‘Fox and Friends’ host Steve Doocy in off-air remarks about Cheney, who has been cut off by the party members after she voted to impeach Trump earlier this year and accused him of the Capitol riots on January 6 that claimed the lives of five people.
About the off-air remarks, McCain remarked, “Well, let's cut the crap. He wasn't caught on a hot mic. I think anyone in politics knows that that was done intentionally,” as she went on to say, “I don't understand what's going on. I have spent the past five years of my life trying to accept, understand, and include the MAGA base of this party. And the message that's being sent by the highest member of Republicans in Congress is that women like me and Liz Cheney who refuse to bend the knee to President Trump but still remain loyal Republicans, we don't have a place in this party, we are worthless, we are not worth fighting for to keep. It’s Kafkaesque to spin this any other way.”
She then fumed, “It's the most asinine politics I have seen in a really, really long time, in a cacophony of asinine politics. I feel very defensive of Liz Cheney, and if you do this, which it looks like they're going to do, I promise you there will be consequences. Go ahead in this sausagefest of MAGA up on Capitol Hill. Pull her out and put another woman in who will do anything you want for President Trump. The election wasn’t stolen. He’s Jesus. It’s only Trumpism. See where this lands us in midterms. I’m absolutely furious!” The 'other woman' is Representative Elise Stefanik from New York, who Republicans are thinking to give Cheney’s place.
Soon after McCain’s rant, her brutal nickname for Trump went viral as #CheetoJesus started trending on Twitter. One user wrote, “#CheetoJesus It. Was. Perfect. BAM! ‘Cheeto Jesus’ ‘sausagefest of MAGA’ ‘cacophony of asinine politics’ Perfect.” The second user said, “In the Republican Party, #CheetoJesus is their leader, and #LizCheney is being perged for telling the truth. Now, that's totally fucked up.” “Liz Cheney refuses to bow to #CheetoJesus, so the feckless Trump toadies want her ousted. IT’s just one more example of how the GQP is morally bankrupt. The TRUTH isn’t important to the Trump cult and they prove it over and over. #RepublicansSuck #DemVoice1 #FreshVoices.” McCain also tweeted about the trend by saying, “#CheetoJesus is trending. You guys…”
