Cheney Goes On a Rampage

( – Showcasing her contempt for the GOP frontrunner in the presidential nomination race while giving Democrats a lifeline, former GOP Representative Liz Cheney stated she would never cast her vote for former President Donald Trump.

During a recent appearance on ABC’s “The View,” Cheney navigated questions about her voting preferences. Cheney expressed her concerns about the future of the Republican Party, predicting significant changes in the American political scene. “There will be a huge tectonic shift in our politics,” she said, addressing the potential transformations within the GOP.

When Joy Behar, one of the show’s co-hosts, directly pressed Cheney to say if she would consider supporting Biden over Trump, Cheney replied:

“I’m not going to endorse anybody today. And I think that, again, we don’t know exactly what the choice will be. I’d say that I will never vote for Donald Trump. There are some conservatives who are trying to make this claim that somehow Biden is a bigger risk than Trump. My view is, I disagree with a lot of Joe Biden’s policies. We can survive bad policies. We cannot survive torching the Constitution.”

Cheney’s recent memoir, “Oath & Honor,” dives into her perspective on Trump and the perceived danger of “his efforts to overturn the election.” As a former House Republican Conference chair, she sometimes supported Trump during his presidency.

However, her opposition to Trump surrounding the 2020 election and her participation in the Jan. 6 House Select Committee investigation led to significant backlash within the Republican Party. This ended in her defeat in the Wyoming GOP primary race for the at-large congressional seat in 2022.

In a recent speech in New Hampshire, Cheney urged voters to confront the “plague of cowardice” within the Republican Party, advocating for a firm stance in defense of democratic principles.

Cheney also emphasized the importance of continuously addressing the significance of democracy, especially to independent voters. She discussed the alleged danger of underestimating Trump’s influence and actions, saying:

“We have to make sure people understand, especially independents, that if — when you get down to if it ends up being a choice, if he ends up as the Republican nominee, independents cannot say to themselves, ‘You know what, I don’t like a bunch of things about him but I’m going to go ahead and vote for him.’ We cannot take that risk, because we know what he’s done. He attempted to seize power, and he’s continuing every single day to make threats of political violence, he’s been absolutely clear he will not have around him again the people who stopped the very worst.”
