As the 2022 midterms continues to barrel toward a nation that may or may not truly be ready for them, there are few political storylines with more gravity than Donald Trump’s possible plans for reelection.
Trump is the de facto philosophical leader of the Republican Party at the moment, despite some newly-minted opposition to the MAGA agenda from the likes of Mitch McConnell and others, and his decision on his potential reelection in 2024 will undoubtedly shape the next several years of American life.
But first, Trump has a number of midterm candidates that he’d like to see elevated…and even more that he’d like to see eliminated, like Liz Cheney of Wyoming.
Now, Liz’s famous father has fighting words for the former guy.
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.
“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.
Liz Cheney’s anti-Trump slant forced the Wyoming Republican Party to officially disown her in recent months.
