Speaker Mike Johnson speaks out against 'Dissention' in Republican Party

 April 1, 2024

Speaker Mike Johnson, a Republican from Louisiana, has called for a motion to VACATE the "distraction" in the Republican party:

The growing schism between party members.

According to Mike Johnson, the "dissension" within the Republican Party that is resulting in growing calls for a motion to vacate him from the speakership isn't helping the party move in the right direction.

Fox News' Trey Gowdy asked Johnson if he thinks the motion helps the GOP grow its majority.

"I don’t think it does," Johnson replied.

"I think all of my other Republican colleagues recognize this is a distraction from our mission. Again, the mission is to save the republic. And the only way we can do that is if we grow the House majority, win the Senate, and win the White House."

Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene is no stranger to controversy.

Just a short while ago, the focus was put on her because of her growing feud with Grandma Lauren Boebert out there in Colorado.

More recently, Marjorie Taylor Greene filed a motion to vacate the Speaker of the House position, accusing Mike Johnson of "failing to do more to secure America’s border and for working with Democrats on a bipartisan spending deal."

Mike Johnson doesn't seem to concerned about that motion at the moment, claiming that "it's just hanging in there."

America's Speaker of the House explained to Trey Gowdy that the movement against him represents a bigger problem within the Republican Party:

The GOP just can't seem to get on the same page.

There are countless examples of Republicans shooting themselves in the foot lately, and Johnson wants the madness to stop.

Recent examples of the growing divide in the party are Donald Trump saying that he doesn't need votes from Nikki Haley supporters, and the mess that was the removal of Kevin McCarthy.

If Republicans aren't able to get on the same page soon, they're not going to be any better than the Democrats in my eyes.

Right now, all I see is a bunch of rich people arguing with each other.
