Banana republic watch

In which country is a politician more likely to get into trouble for not showing sufficient loyalty to the president?

1. Venezuela
2. Switzerland

Here’s the WaPo:

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) came under fire Tuesday from the far-right flank of the House Republican caucus, who accused her of disloyalty to President Trump and later called on her to step down from her leadership post.

Members of the House Freedom Caucus chided Cheney, the chair of the House Republican Conference, for supporting Anthony S. Fauci and breaking with the president on recent foreign policy issues. Cheney stood her ground in the closed-door meeting, firing back that the conservative agitators were the ones who typically lack loyalty to Trump and fellow Republicans.

Did I fall asleep and wake up in a different country? Is this now our system of government? People in the legislative branch are now supposed to show “loyalty” to people in the executive branch? How about the head of the FBI; should he also show loyalty?

PS. Here’s Switzerland’s current president:
