While the Republican Party did win back the House of Representatives, it appears that they are not all on the same page.
MSNBC columnist Hayes Brown argued on Wednesday that the GOP seems to be in a state of “pure chaos.”
“The chaos that’s engulfed congressional Republicans is truly impressive in its scope,” he writes. “There are presently divisions within the House Republican caucus, between Republicans in the House and Senate, and even inside the normally staid Senate Republican caucus.”
Brown also notes that not only are Republicans split on who will be their House Leader, but even MAGA Republicans Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Lauren Boebert (R-CO) taking shots at one another on social media.
As if that weren’t enough, the party also has to deal with the headache of scandal-plagued Rep.-elect George Santos (R-NY), who admitted this week that he fabricated his entire past resume including his education, his work history, and even his ethnicity.
“Democrats must feel good knowing that not only is the GOP split over policy, it’s also failing at what is normally the party’s bread and butter: political theater,” he writes. “And GOP members loudly and publicly attacking each other instead of President Biden is probably the closest thing to a win Democrats can hope for while the House remains out of their hands.”
