Never Trump RINO Liz Cheney refuses to just go away.
Even though Cheney lost her primary by nearly 40 points Cheney continues to delude herself into thinking she has a political future as a presidential candidate.
And what Liz Cheney just said on CNN will make your blood boil.
CNN’s Trump-hating left-wing host Jake Tapper interviewed Cheney for no other reason than to continue the Cheney grift about her supposed future as a voice of alleged “conscience” in the GOP.
Tapper asked Cheney about an excerpt from anti-Trump New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman’s new book “Confidence Man.”
Haberman resorts to the well-worn trope of anonymous sources close to Trump telling reporters that Trump planned to do something outrageous that never happened.
In this case, it was Haberman baselessly claiming Trump told associates he would refuse to leave the White House following the election.
If this story were actually true it meant Maggie Haberman sat on a story for two years about how Donald Trump intended to end democracy in America and create a crisis where the Secret Service would potentially have to evict Trump at gun point from the White House.
Trump supporters rolled their eyes at the usual “sources close to Trump” nonsense and chalked it up to yet another example of a media figure looking to get rich by feeding the left’s delusions about Trump.
But not Liz Cheney.
Cheney’s accepted Haberman’s account lock, stock and barrel and claimed it showed how dangerous Trump was.
“I obviously haven’t seen her book, but sometimes people will say, ‘Well, you know, what happened wasn’t that big a deal because if Mike Pence had rejected a slate of electors, the Supreme Court would have sorted it out. There are a lot of ways people sort of say this wasn’t as dangerous as it really was. And when you hear something like that, I think you have to recognize that we were in no man’s land and territory we’ve never been in before as a nation,” Cheney told Tapper.
Cheney then invented a wild scenario – which of course never happened – where the Supreme Court ruled against Trump and Trump refuses to abide by the decision creating a constitutional crisis.
“When you think about, well, the Supreme Court would have sorted it out, you have to ask yourself, but who would have enforced the rulings of the court? And if you have a president who’s refusing to leave the White House or who’s saying he refuses to leave the White House, then anyone who sort of stands aside and says someone else will handle it is themselves putting the nation at risk. It is clear that when you were at the moment that we faced, everyone had to stand up and take responsibility. And I think that’s not surprising that those are the sentiments that he reportedly expressed. I think, again, it just affirms the reality of the danger,” Cheney added.
Cheney’s interview showed why she lost her primary so decisively.
Wyoming Republicans got sick of Cheney buying into every left-wing narrative about Trump even when they turned out not to be true such as Cheney promoting the hoax The New York Times printed about Trump ignoring the Russians paying the Taliban bounties to kill American soldiers in Afghanistan – and sent her packing back to her home in Virginia.
