Trump allies retaliate against Liz Cheney in home state

President Trump’s allies in the House and Wyoming are furious with Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-WY) defection and participation in the Democrats’ vindictive impeachment effort. Cheney, the lone House member from Wyoming, is facing fury in her home state and pushback from her Republican colleagues in the House.

Cheney, daughter of George W. Bush’s vice president Dick Cheney, was one of the 10 Republicans in the House to vote to impeach President Trump on a charge of incitement to insurrection.

Charging President Trump with betrayal, Cheney issued a strong condemnation of him after the assault on the Capitol on January 6th. She blamed the president for summoning a “mob.” She also condemned him for not forcefully stopping the incident. Providing House Democrats with arguments, she stated:

Much more will become clear in the coming days and weeks, but what we know now is enough. The President of the United States summoned this mob, and lit the flame of this attack Everything that followed was his doing. None of this would have happened without the President. The President could have immediately and forcefully intervened to stop the violence. He did not. There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution.

Further enraging pro-Trump elements in the House and at home in Wyoming, Cheney also tried to recruit others in the Republican caucus to vote to impeach President Trump.

Rejecting Cheney’s leadership, pro-Trump Republicans in the House are demanding that Cheney, the third highest-ranking Republican, be demoted. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Andy Biggs (R-AZ) call for her to be stripped of her position. Biggs explained why Cheney, if unfit to lead after being unanimously elected to the number 3 position after the November election: “She should resign her position as a conference chair and should not be serving this conference. That’s it. The reality is, she’s not representing the conference. She’s not representing the Republican ideals.”

Bucking the trend, former Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the highest-ranking Republican in the party, indicated support of Cheney as the fallout from her impeachment votes continues. McConnell said: “Liz Cheney is a leader with deep convictions and the courage to act on them. She is an important leader in our party and in our nation. I am grateful for her service and look forward to continuing to work with her on the crucial issues facing our nation.”

According to The Washington Examiner, a new poll reveals overwhelming condemnation of Cheney’s statement and actions. 75% of Wyoming Republicans polled expressed a negative opinion of Cheney.

Almost 75% of Republican voters in Wyoming, and just over 60% of voters overall, expressed a negative opinion of Cheney in a poll carried out by pollster John McLaughlin between Jan. 25-26.

John Mclaughlin explained Cheney’s primary danger:

“Liz Cheney’s decision to vote to impeach President Trump makes her extremely vulnerable. It is evident her ratings are in bad shape among general election voters and have collapsed among Republicans and Trump voters.”

Cheney will have to face the music in the 2022 primary. It remains to be seen if the people of Wyoming will still be angry with her by the time she has to face her voters again.

  1. After the steal of the 2020 election, I am seeing that there was a deeeeeep sigh of relief by all of the RINO’s in DC. They thought that now Trump was gone, things would go back to normal. You know, a bunch of do nothings talking tough talk but wetting their panties every time a Dem spoke to them. That being said, there were and still are a few tough Trump supporters in DC and I am proud that they are not afraid of the left or the boobs who sit in their party. These RINO’s such a Cheney, McConnell, Romney, Collins, Kinzinger, Price, and others need to know that Trump’s supporters aren’t going away and we are going to demand the party get in step of get out. Time to find those who will support Trump’s agenda and get rid of the lazy, weak, spineless cowards in the GOP.

    1. The Republican Party needs to find good replacements for these worthless people.They do not represent the views of the American Voters at all.
      States should recall them and fire them.

  2. Well if crazy Liz heard the same speech I heard from our PRESIDENT St. DONALD TRUMP AND CHECK THE TIME PERIODS SHE WOULD FIND OUT antifa was already in the building with blm rioters. When the PRESIDENT WAS ASKING FOR A PEACEFUL MARCH DOWN TO THE HOUSE. And telling people to be careful and be safe. Liz bipolar or mentally illiterate? She put a lot in her speech like shuffle did reading a phone conversation. She’s definitely a RINO. SEMPER FIDELIS

  3. Good for Wyoming. My sister used to live there, and it’s a really beautiful state with good people, and they don’t want the likes of Liz Chaney. Vote this nasty person out.

  4. All the Rinos and Demorats should be thrown out of office a bigger bunch of bought politicians never existed!!!

  5. In the 2020 election, we MUST replace the RINOs in Congress – both the House and Senate. We are the majority and must nominate and elect Trump supporters, ridding Congress of as many Democrats as possible!

  6. We Trump supporters don’t forget. All the rinos holding political office showing dislike for Trump for finished and must be voted out in the next election. Wyoming you know what to do.

  7. What mcconnell fails to realize is that his betrayal towards Trump has put him in most conservatives’ sights and therefore his words mean absolutely nothing, so his supporting cheney also means nothing. Both will probably NOT be reelected 2022… they’re like buggers on a fingertip waiting to be flicked off

  8. Really great article – I was thinking about a similar article which I will probably still write, but from a slightly different angle. Thanks for sharing this with your readersObviously a lot of others appreciate it too!
