In a new ad, Dick Cheney says that not only is Donald Trump a coward for trying to steal the last election, but he also calls him the single greatest threat to our country. That’s quite an accusation coming from a man that was a part of an administration that also stole an election and then went on to commit war crimes all over the globe. Farron Cousins discusses this.

Republican representative Liz Cheney is facing an uphill battle in her primary race to retain her seat. A Trump back opponent, of course, is leading in the polls. Trump has targeted Cheney because of course she’s not just serving on the January 6th committee, but she also impeached him. So Liz Cheney decided to pull out the big guns and she got her daddy old Dick Cheney to cut an ad for her, where he brutally attacked Donald Trump. And just take a look at old Dick Cheney telling us what he thinks about Donald Trump. Here. It is
In our nation’s 246 year history. There has never been an individual who was 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, he was 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. Lynn and I are so proud of Liz for standing up for the truth, doing what’s right honoring her oath to the constitution. When so many in our party are too scared to do so. Liz is fearless. She never backs down from a fight. There is nothing more important she will ever do. Then lead the effort to make sure Donald Trump is never again near the oval office and she will succeed. I am Dick Cheney. I proudly voted for my daughter. I hope you will too.
I’m Liz Cheney. And I approve this message.
The single person that poses the greatest threat to the United States, Dick Cheney says is Donald Trump. And of course he adds that Donald Trump, as a coward, now I’m not gonna disagree with him on the coward part. And I think there is an argument obviously, to be made that Trump does in fact pose the single greatest threat of any individual to the United States. Uh, again, there’s an argument to be made. It is debatable. I do think, but, uh, Dick let’s stop acting like the administration. You were a part of, didn’t also steal an election. Okay. Y’all intervened at the Supreme court, got them to rule that Florida had to stop counting the votes. And that’s what handed you and George w the white house. So I’d say that classifies as a stolen election. I mean, you guys didn’t win the popular vote in 2000 either now to mention the fact that then you guys went on to preside over the greatest terrorist attack on United States, soil and American history.
Then of course you launched a war based on lies that killed more than 1 million people put us in a 20 year quagmire and committed war crimes all across the globe with, with torture, your so called enhanced interrogation, the CIA black sites, all of these horrible things that you did. And of course you shot your friend in the face when you were hunting, because you couldn’t tell the difference between him. And I think, uh, what a bird. So I don’t know that you should be the one out there acting as the face of the Liz Cheney campaign, right? You’ve got more skeletons in your closet. Let’s be honest than Donald Trump does. And that is exactly what Donald Trump’s allies have been pointing out. Ever since this clip came out on Thursday, including Steve Bannon, who lashed out at Dick Cheney as a war criminal called him out for starting the war based on lies, killing a million people.
So Bann, and again, not wrong about that, but then again, not quite wrong about the danger that Donald Trump poses, but again, let’s not whitewash American history. Let’s not rehab the image of anyone with the last name of Chaney, just because they dislike the same person that we do again, just because we have a common enemy doesn’t mean we have common goals. It doesn’t mean we have anything else at all in common Dick Cheney, you know, by, by pretty much every measure, except of course for arrest and conviction helped his administration commit war crimes. And we shouldn’t just sit here and act like, oh good. He hates Trump. Great we’re best friends now. No, we’re not. Dick Chaney should be serving time in prison. He shouldn’t be out cutting campaign ads for his daughter.
