On Tuesday Rep. Liz Cheney was voted out of office in a blowout primary election, and we’ve seen some hot takes in the wake of that, but this one might be the most scorching:

This is a “journalism” work of art worthy of the Louvre:

That take comes courtesy of Time’s Washington correspondent:

Cheney got voted out of office by a huge margin in a free and fair primary election… just like Stalin would have done!

There are forced narratives and then there’s whatever next-level spin-a-palooza this is:

It’s not just the Soviets who are masters of disappearing someone. Just look at Wyoming, where voters this week drubbed a former senior member of the Republican establishment out of office on orders from former President Donald Trump. Rep. Liz Cheney lost her bid for renomination by a stunning 37 points after daring to hold Trump accountable for his role in the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. Trump made defeating Cheney his top priority, making his contempt for her and her famous family clear. The Republican National Committee didn’t even mention Cheney in their statement Tuesday evening on Harriet Hageman’s victory in the deep-red state.

So free and fair elections and allowing the will of the voters to play out is Stalin-esque now?

That took it to the next level.

Right?
