GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik Dragged Over 'Cringeworthy' Boast About Trump Support

The New York Republican said she was “honored.” Critics said she should be anything but.

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) drew scorn on Twitter Monday after she boasted that ex-President Donald Trump has endorsed her as the next House Republican Conference chair.

Stefanik wrote she was “honored to earn the support” of Trump, whose acolytes are seeking to purge Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) from the House GOP leadership position for her refusal to bow to Trump’s election lies.

Critics accused Stefanik — who openly backs Trump’s election conspiracies — of selling her soul.

They also asked her to define the term “honor.”

“Beyond embarrassing. Actually cringe-worthy,” said one.
