Liz Cheney thinks she can stop Trump by running against him in two years.
She expected her new-found Democrat pals to rally behind her.
But Liz Cheney just found out the hard way how quickly Democrats will turn on Republicans.
Despite losing her Primary by an embarrassing 37 points, Liz Cheney is considering running for President in two years as a way to stop Donald Trump.
At the Texas Tribune Festival she admitted that she’s willing to do anything to stop the former President.
“I’m going to make sure Donald Trump, I’m going to do everything I can to make sure he is not the nominee. And if he is the nominee, I won’t be a Republican,” Cheney stated.
“It’s not about me or making a decision about what I’m going to do,” Cheney added. “I certainly will do whatever it takes to make sure Donald Trump isn’t anywhere close to the Oval Office.”
Cheney tried to downplay her 2024 ambitions in a recent interview with CNN, where she claimed her only focus was finishing up her important work on Pelosi’s witch hunt committee.
“At this point, I have not made a decision about 2024. I am really very focused on the substance of what we have to do on the Select Committee, very focused on the work that I have to do to represent the people of Wyoming, and I’ll make a decision about 2024 down the road,” Cheney explained.
But Cheney is in for a rude awakening, as the same Democrats who cheered her on for the past two years are now talking nasty about her to the press by accusing her of undermining the Committee report.
“Now, less than six weeks before the conclusion of the Committee’s work, Cheney’s influence over the Committee’s final report has rankled many current and former Committee staff. They are angered and disillusioned by Cheney’s push to focus the report primarily on former president Donald Trump, and have bristled at the Committee morphing into what they have come to view as the vehicle for the outgoing Wyoming lawmaker’s political future,” the Washington Post reported.
According to Democrat Committee staffers, Cheney selfishly focused on Trump to try and boost her chances of running for President in 2024.
“We all came from prestigious jobs, dropping what we were doing because we were told this would be an important fact-finding investigation that would inform the public,” a former Committee staffer told the Post. “But when [the Committee] became a Cheney 2024 campaign, many of us became discouraged.”
When Republicans sell out conservatives, Democrats are always happy to cheer them on.
But the moment they decide to run for President, they find the entire Left lines up against them.
John McCain learned this lesson the hard way.
And like him, Liz Cheney is now learning it too.
