In yet another inexplicable act of political suicide, Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney (R) launched a vicious attack on former President Donald Trump over the weekend during an interview with her allies at left-leaning ABC News.
According to ABC News, Cheney said during an interview with George Stephanopoulos on This Week that because of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, Trump is “clearly unfit” to serve another term in the White House.
While Cheney and Trump have exchanged their fair share of insults over the past year, Cheney seems to be consistent in her attacks, even amid low party polling in her home state, and presumably knowing that she’s one of the most hated Republicans by Trump’s base of tens of millions of supporters across the country.
However, because of her anti-Trump narrative, she’s worshipped by her leftist media allies and constantly invited for interviews across the liberal media sphere.
Her latest attack
Cheney was asked about Trump’s role in the Capitol riot event, which led her to assert that the 45th president shouldn’t be allowed to go anywhere near the White House in 2024.
“He crossed lines no American president has ever crossed before,” she said, according to ABC. “When a president refuses to tell the mob to stop, when he refuses to defend any of the coordinate branches of government, he cannot be trusted.”
While such a claim has been parroted across the liberal media for nearly one year, there’s always plenty of missing context, and the events that led up to the rioting event are still being disputed.
The Wyoming Republican stated that it’s the GOP’s responsibility “to make sure that Donald Trump is not our nominee, and that he’s never anywhere close to the reins of power ever again.”
End of our democracy
Last week, failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton warned America during an interview that if Trump were to run and win in 2024, it would mark the “end of our democracy.” Cheney was asked if she agreed with Clinton’s claim.
“I do,” Cheney responded.
Cheney is one of two anti-Trump Republicans on the highly partisan Jan. 6 House select committee, made up of Dems who are clearly interested not in pursuing the truth but making sure they can log as many attacks against Trump as possible ahead of the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential election.
Cheney is expected to be primaried in Wyoming next year, should she decide to run for re-election, as Forbes reported last year.
