Over the weekend Liz Cheney promised to campaign for Democrats if that’s what it took to keep Kari Lake from becoming the governor of Arizona. Absolutely despicable.
She also said that if Trump becomes the Republican nominee in 2024, that she’ll leave the Republican Party:
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) pledged to renounce the GOP and leave the party altogether if former President Donald Trump is the Republican nominee for president in 2024.
Cheney made the comments while speaking to Texas Tribune CEO Evan Smith as part of an event at the paper’s annual festival on Saturday after being asked if she would remain a Republican regardless of what happens in the 2024 presidential election. The Wyoming lawmaker, a lifelong conservative, was ousted by a double-digit margin last month by a Trump-backed challenger in her House GOP primary. Her loss came after Republican voters and operatives soured on her anti-Trump stance, which arose over his efforts to overturn the 2020 election results and escalated into a bitter GOP feud.
“I’m going to make sure Donald Trump — I’m going to do everything I can to make sure he’s not the nominee,” Cheney told Smith. “And if he is the nominee, I won’t be a Republican.”
Asked by Smith if she would consider running for president to prevent a second Trump term, the outgoing lawmaker reiterated her commitment to preventing the former president from ever returning to the Oval Office but declined to give a straight answer to the question.
“I certainly will do whatever it takes to make sure Donald Trump isn’t anywhere close to the Oval Office,” Cheney replied coyly.
I don’t know about you but I think that’s a great reason to make Trump the nominee in 2024. The Republican Party has already given her the boot in Wyoming. I can’t wait for her to leave altogether.
Maybe Liz can be like her buddy Bill Kristol and switch to the Democrat party to help them win elections. Maybe she’ll move to California or New York so she can thrive as a Democrat.
Seriously though, this is what TDS does to people. They become so obsessed with hating Trump that they become deranged and start hating anything and everything associated with Trump. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen it and won’t be the last.
