As part of the battle for the soul of the Republican Party, embattled Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) took a low shot at colleague and antagonist Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) for wearing make-up.
Apparently, in reference to Gaetz's admission in an HBO documentary that he does his own make-up before cable TV appearances, the Washington Examiner reported on the escalating battle between Gaetz and Cheney, who is under fire for supporting Donald Trump's impeachment.
According to the report, a spokesperson for Cheney, noting Gaetz is coming to Wyoming for an anti-Cheney rally, stated for the congresswoman, "Rep. Gaetz can leave his beauty bag at home. In Wyoming, the men don't wear make-up."

Before leaving the White House as president, Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump chose to be inoculated from the deadly coronavirus, but opted to keep it a secret. Republicans represent the largest group of Americans who say they will not or are unsure if they will get vaccinated.
