The struggle over the heart of the Republican Party continues to dominate the news cycle on the right side of the aisle, particularly as the 2022 midterms continue to hover over the national political scene like a weighted blanket of doom.
This is the contest that will sent into motion an assuredly turbulent 2024 election cycle, that will likely see former President Donald Trump wielding the gigantic power of the MAGA voter base to sway the GOP ever closer to his America First agenda.
Republicans who defy him, like Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney, have consistently found themselves with an uphill climb ahead of them. In fact, the Cowboy State GOP has already declared that Cheney is no longer a Republican in their eyes, and she’s facing a rather difficult race against not only her direct opponents, but against an avalanche of rhetoric being corralled her way by Donald Trump himself.
This week, Cheney reached out to her infamous father for help.
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.Trending:
“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.
The former Vice President’s words were hyperbolic, to say the least.
“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.
Former VP Cheney’s stock in DC has plummeted in recent years, however, as Americans continue to learn of his Deep State antics – particularly his ethically-questionable work with Haliburton during the rebuilding of Iraq after a war the he oversaw.
Dick Cheney represents precisely the corners of the swamp that Donald Trump looked to drain first, and so this message may be disregarded before it ever had a chance to register on the national political conscience.
