Republicans have been trying to imitate Donald Trump ever since he arrived on the political scene. Yet, each time they fail abysmally. Still, like the Orange One, they just keep throwing their bodies against the brick wall of repeated lunacy.

Take Representative Elise Stefanik (R-NY) for example. Look what happened to her after she did her best Trump impression The Washington Post reported:

Harvard Institute of Politics removes GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik from its Senior Advisory Committee, citing her unfounded claims of voter fraud in the November election. Letter from Harvard Kennedy School Dean Douglas Elmendorf —>’

Harvard Dean Doug Elmendorf asked Representative Stefanik to step down from participating on a senior advisory committee. The cause was that she espoused baseless claims of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election. She refused.

The decision, he said, came after he met with students, alumni, and other Harvard faculty:

‘My request was not about political parties, political ideology, or her choice of candidate for president. Rather, in my assessment, Elise has made public assertions about voter fraud in November’s presidential election that have no basis in evidence, and she has made public statements about court actions related to the election that are incorrect. Moreover, these assertions and statements do not reflect policy disagreements but bear on the foundations of the electoral process through which this country’s leaders are chosen.’

The Representative responded to the call for her resignation from the board, according to Syracuse.com:

‘They have the right to those opinions, and they also have the constitutional right to speak out. President-Elect Biden was certified, but that debate was important for the American people to hear.

‘I just went through an election in November. I earned the highest number of votes of any congressional candidate in the history of the North Country. I’m going to continue to work my very hardest.’

Stefanik also condemned the violence in a statement:

‘Americans have a Constitutional right to protest & freedom of speech, but violence in any form is absolutely unacceptable & anti-American. My staff & I are safe. We pray that all of my colleagues on both sides of the aisle, their staff, & all Americans remain safe.’

She called the move by Harvard her “badge of honor:”

‘As a conservative Republican, it is a rite of passage and badge of honor to join the long line of leaders who have been boycotted, protested and canceled by colleges and universities across America. [Harvard’s] intolerant liberal views demonstrates the sneering disdain for everyday Americans and will instill a culture of fear for students who will understand that a conservative viewpoint will not be tolerated and will be silenced.’

On Twitter she wrote:

‘My Statement on @Harvard @harvardiop Bowing to the Far-Left:’
