Former VP Dick Cheney appeared in an advert for his daughter’s floundering marketing campaign in Wyoming, blasting former President Donald Trump as a “coward” and “the most important menace to the Republic in our nation’s historical past.”
Liz Cheney trotted out her father for a brand new clip during which it’s revealed that obsessing over Trump is a household affair. Within the advert, Cheney additionally makes an attempt to justify her work on the January 6 committee.
“In our nation’s 246-year historical past there has by no means been a person who’s a higher menace to our Republic than Donald Trump,” the previous vice president states.
Hmm … leaders of the Accomplice Military, John Wilkes Sales space, Lee Harvey Oswald, and Osama Bin Laden come to thoughts when occupied with the hyperbole in that assertion.
In an odd addendum, the 81-year-old Cheney continues the theme of attacking Trump’s manhood as effectively.
“He tried to steal the final election with lies and violence to maintain himself in energy after the voters had rejected him,” the elder Cheney rails, referencing the doubtless GOP nominee for President in 2024. “He’s a coward. An actual man wouldn’t misinform his supporters.”
Hey Dick, does Iraq ring a bell?

Dick Cheney Assaults Trump, However Isn’t Going to Be Capable of Save Liz
Many Trump supporters view the marketing campaign advert that includes Dick Cheney as an insult to Donald Trump – and it’s. However that’s not the true takeaway right here.
In my opinion, it is a clear signal that Liz Cheney (R-WY) is dropping by the wayside as she battles a double-digit polling deficit heading towards an August sixteenth main for Wyoming’s at-large Home seat.
The advert could be “paid for by Liz Cheney for Wyoming,” however there may be nothing within the advert that might probably enchantment to a voter in Wyoming. She’s not even attempting at this level.
What does baiting Trump over his manhood do on your unhappy, limp marketing campaign, Liz?
Unbelievable 😬 Does she actually assume that is going to work for her in Wyoming! 😂

Liz Cheney tried the identical tactic when she used “Yellowstone” actor Kevin Costner in a latest promo, claiming, “Actual males put nation over celebration.”
(Costner endorsed Pete Buttigieg within the 2020 Presidential election, and voted for Joe Biden. Liz Cheney certain retains fascinating firm.)
Sure, and actual women and men struggle for his or her morals and beliefs regardless of the potential for somebody getting harm emotions. Actual women and men stay principled conservatives regardless of the variations they could have with different principled conservatives.
Not Liz. Liz is to this point adrift from being principled that she doesn’t struggle for conservatism or her constituents any longer, she merely eats, sleeps, and breathes Donald Trump.
One has to marvel if she sits on the top of her mattress sobbing and poking needles right into a Trump voodoo doll every evening. Sadly for her, carting Daddy out in entrance of the digicam isn’t going to save lots of her congressional profession from crashing down on the sixteenth.
That institution blowhard who by no means met a conflict he didn’t like ought to ask each soldier wounded within the Iraq Struggle and each household who misplaced a liked one based mostly on his hideous lies to attract us into conflict in the event that they agree.
Trump stored us OUT of wars! https://t.co/azXzRuK9PX

Rewriting Dick’s Historical past
About the one factor Liz Cheney may probably hope for with this advert is to fire up Democrats to come back out and vote for her within the Republican main, one thing The Political Insider has touched on in previous reporting.
And sure, Democrats have a brand new outlook on Dick Cheney, whom they as soon as considered as a conflict legal and akin to a Nazi. You realize, the identical method they handled Cheney’s boss, President George W. Bush. The identical method they now deal with Trump.
However their hatred of Trump is so profound that Home Democrats invited the Cheney’s to a January 6
soiree anniversary remembrance this previous January and promptly lined as much as shake the elder’s hand.

Dick Cheney taking challenge with someone complaining about election integrity is kind of ironic. He will need to have fully forgotten about Al Gore and his makes an attempt to struggle election ends in 2000.
Following the competition with Bush/Cheney, Gore refused to just accept the free and honest election outcomes and wouldn’t concede defeat. He as a substitute tied up the election course of through litigation within the courts for months.
Gore persistently misplaced his bid to overturn the election ends in the decrease courts and stored preventing within the Florida Supreme Courtroom.
He wouldn’t concede till mid-December of that yr, a month and a half after Election Day. Was he not a menace to the Republic, Dick?
Quite the opposite Dick…Donald Trump is the most important menace to a Corrupt Institution in each events
Your daughter selected the improper facet. What does it let you know that these on the Looney Left love her now?
She dedicated political suicide! Good riddance 👋 https://t.co/315hBlJGnF

Quick-forward over twenty years and the person Democrats accused of getting ‘stolen’ an election is being utilized in a marketing campaign advert for his daughter, who’s obsessive about a person who’s arguing that his election was ‘stolen.’
We’re really dwelling in an alternate universe.
Dick Cheney, it should be noted, was universally reviled as an integral determine within the ‘weapons of mass destruction’ intelligence failure that led to an almost 9-year conflict in Iraq that price numerous navy and civilian lives.
He spied on People and introduced again torture ways.
Oh, and he unintentionally shot an acquaintance whereas on a quail searching journey in 2006.
Not the primary time ol’ Dick Cheney has engaged in ill-fated pleasant hearth. Simply ask Harry Whittington. This time it’ll be Liz who’ll “lose face”. https://t.co/BtIEeEYNSG

Is it any marvel he left workplace with a 13% approval score with the American individuals?
Trump has repeatedly slammed Liz Cheney and her father as “warmongers” who love “limitless, nonsensical, bloody wars.”
“She’s the face of the Washington swamp and the identical failed international coverage of the Clintons, Bushes, the Obamas, the Bidens and all the sick political institution,” the previous President recently said.
And bringing Daddy in as a lifesaver isn’t going to make a little bit of distinction.
