Earlier today, we reported that Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) were publicly feuding after she voted in favor of impeaching former President Donald Trump. Now, “The View” cohost Joy Behar is inserting herself into this drama, warning Gaetz to “watch” himself when it comes to fighting with Cheney.
Behar went after not only Gaetz, but also any Republican senator who votes against impeaching Trump over the Capitol riots earlier this month.
“That anybody in the Senate could look at that, could look at the facts, and not say that he’s guilty, I do not really understand what country I’m living in,” Behar said. “And you know what, these people who are not going to vote for a conviction will be remembered. We will remember them. Because if they let him go without any kind of accountability, Trump, this will happen again. It will happen again. We’ll remember those names of the senators and the House people who decided not to convict this guy, because the blood is on their hands then.”
Not stopping there, Behar said that House Impeachment Managers had delivered the article to the “scene of the crime” on Monday.
“Those people who were receiving those papers, these people, they were all at risk that day and they know it, even those who are going to vote to acquit this guy,” Behar said. “They know they were at risk.”
That’s when Behar gave Gaetz a warning about messing with Cheney.
“As far as Matt Gaetz and Liz Cheney is concerned, the daughter of Dick Cheney, she’ll eat him for breakfast,” Behar said. “Matt, you better watch yourself.”
“These [senators] who are not going to vote for a conviction will be remembered,” @JoyVBehar says. “If they let [Trump] go without any kind of accountability… this will happen again.”

This came after Gaetz announced plans to travel to Wyoming to try and “inspire” the state to oust her as its representative.
“In the wake of the Biden presidency, the Republican Party establishment is trying to wrangle the conservative movement back under their control,” Gaetz said. “They want the GOP to look and sound like Liz Cheney. I have a competing vision for Republicanism and I intend to showcase it by going after the America Last politicians in both parties.”
