Liz Cheney compares GOP displacement to Lil Nas X’s NSFW music video

Liz Cheney, played by Kate McKinnon, got the chance to express her complaints to the Republican Party on Saturday Night Live this week.

A real-life context: Cheney, the House’s third-ranking Republican and outspoken critic of former President Donald Trump, was removed from her leadership position by vote at the conference on Wednesday. She was one of 10 members of the Republican House who voted to indict Trump for his alleged role in inciting the deadly January 6 riot and has chaired the House’s Republican Conference since 2019.

But if you’re not up to date with political developments, that’s fine because McKinnon’s Cheninn has expressed her distance in terms of pop culture.

“I was expelled from the Republican Party,” she told Colin Jost during the weekend update segment. “Like Lil Nas X, I fell to hell, infested with the devil, and jumped back to MSNBC.”

Despite her fall, McKinnon’s Cheney insisted that she “is everything a conservative woman is supposed to be: blonde (and) mean”.

“People are on my side,” she continued. “Brave Republicans, ready to tell the truth and start a movement. And there are more of us than you think.”

That raised the question to Jost: “How who?”

And McKinnon’s Cheney was ready to count her allies – all on her fingers.

“It’s me. Adam Kinzinger. Chris Wallace. Dick Cheney. Ann Romney. Your horses,” she said, later adding, “George Conway. Nancy Reagan’s ghost. Meghan McCain isn’t there, but I’m working on her.”

McKinnon’s Cheney continued to assure a dubious jost that “the great implosion of Trumpism” was imminent.

“They don’t even know how big the coming tsunami is,” she said. “We’ll talk to me. Omarosa. Five white women – maybe six. Did I say myself?”

She also made a desperate plea for Republicans who remain loyal to Trump.

“Republicans, I’m trying to save you,” she said. “You are like horses that don’t leave a burning barn. You will die.”
