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.
So no principles beyond ambition. Got it.

That ain’t no honor. It’s a disgrace.

This isn’t something to be proud of.

Only a giant trashbag full of traitorous trash would be proud to have Trump endorse them–oh wait, it’s #TrashyStefanik, she can’t help being the trash that she is. Do you hear me, Elise? I said you’re a giant bag of traitorous trash who voted to overturn the election, trashbag https://t.co/Tn67gXxsfn
