The Republicans who supported the bill included RINO’s like Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, Don Bacon of Nebraska, Don Young of Alaska, John Katko of New York, Tom Reed of New York, Andrew Garbarino of New York, Nicole Malliotakis of New York, Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Chris Smith of New Jersey, Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey, Fred Upton of Michigan, Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio, and David McKinley of West Virginia.
The New York Post reports Malliotakis was in the audience at an NRCC dinner when the president eviscerated the renegade Republicans.
“She was visibly shaken by it,” a source told the Post.
The House GOP Conference tweeted and then deleted a post saying, “A vote for the Democrats ‘infrastructure’ bill is a vote for their socialist wish list. Americans won’t forget.”
American Greatness columnist Gavin Wax labeled the New York congresswoman as an anti-Trump lliberal.”
“Malliotakis voted with Democrats to strip Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) of her committee assignments because of media-generated controversies. While attacking the firebrand Greene and depriving her of influence, she fashioned her own “anti-socialist” version of the squad, a pitifully astroturfed attempt to make RINO moderates seem like they are on the cutting edge of populist GOP politics. These flunkies’ efforts have gained little traction as legitimate pro-Trump firebrands continue to dominate the headlines,” he wrote.
Wax called on Republicans to make Mallliotakis a one-term congresswoman.
“Based on Malliotakis’ history as an anti-Trump liberal and despite her posturing to the contrary, her betrayal on the infrastructure bill is a bridge too far. This intolerable act cannot be forgiven or forgotten, whether in the name of party unity or any other platitude regularly tossed out to justify corruption. In the name of putting America first, the grassroots will recruit a primary challenger against Malliotakis in 2022, and she will become a one-term congresswoman,” he wrote.
Per a source at the NRCC dinner with Trump last evening: “He railed on 13 Rs who voted for infrastructure with Nicole Malliotakis there. She was visibly shaken by it.” The source added it was a lengthly speech and Trump was friendly with McCarthy.— Juliegrace Brufke (@juliegraceb) November 9, 2021
