At this point, Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney’s political identity has little substance outside of her distrust of Donald Trump.
The Wyoming GOP has already banished her from the party, her only real role in Congress appears to be working on the January 6th select committee as one of the token Republicans, and her standing with the massive MAGA voting bloc is smothering her midterm reelection chances.
Now, in a rather desperate escalation, her famous father has entered the fray to take potshots at the former President.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney calls former President Donald Trump a “coward” and argues that Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming is “fearless,” as he stars in the latest ad released by his daughter’s re-election campaign.
“In our nation’s 246-year history, there has never been an individual who is a greater threat to our republic than Donald Trump. He tried to steal the last election using lies and violence to keep himself in power after the voters had rejected him,” the elder Cheney says in the ad, which the younger Cheney started running on Thursday, a week and a half before she faces a Trump-endorsed challenger in the Republican congressional primary Wyoming’s single congressional seat.
Cheney was unhinged.
“He is a coward. A real man wouldn’t lie to his supporters. He lost his election and he lost big. I know it, he knows it and deep down I think most Republicans know it,” the former vice president claims, as he points to Trump’s repeated unproven claims that his 2020 election loss to President Biden was due to massive voter fraud.
While Liz Cheney certainly needs all the help that she can get, we’re not sure if calling on her Deep State dad, (who once accidentally shot his own lawyer in the face), is the best option.
