After Liz Cheney Gets Demolished in Primary, She Says She May ‘Run for President’ to Stop Trump

    Self-imagined Trump nemesis Rep. Liz Cheney (RINO-WY) is no more. Cheney was demolished by 37 points in a primary race with Trump-backed challenger Harriet Hageman.

    On Wednesday morning following her defeat, Liz Cheney shared her delusional thoughts on potentially running for president to ‘stop Trump.’ Watch:

    “The former president said last night, you’re now headed to political oblivion,” “Today” host Savannah Guthrie noted. “You said this fight is just beginning, you’ve even launched a political organization already. So let’s just be straight about it. Are you considering running for president yourself?”

    “Well, what I’m going to do, Savannah, is spend the next several months completing my work in Congress, obviously completing my work, representing the people of Wyoming,” Cheney responded. “We have a tremendous amount of work left to do on the January 6th committee.”

    “Also, though, I’m going to be making sure that people all around this country understand the stakes of what we’re facing, understand the extent to which we’ve now got one major political party, my party, which has really become a cult of personality,” she claimed. “And we’ve got to get this party back to a place where we’re embracing the values and the principles on which it was founded. And, talking about, you know, fundamental issues of civics, fundamental issues of what does it mean to be a constitutional Republic.”

    “But Congresswoman, you didn’t answer me yes or no,” Guthrie noted.

    “I will be doing whatever it takes  to keep Donald Trump out of the Oval Office,’ Cheney replied.

    “Well, I know you didn’t say yes or no, and that’s fine if you’re thinking about it, but are you thinking about it?” Guthrie pressed. “Are you thinking about running for president?”

    “That’s a decision that I’m going to make in the coming months,” she responded. “Savannah, I’m not going to make any announcements here this morning, but it is something that I’m thinking about and I’ll make a decision in the coming weeks.”

    Meanwhile, the People of Wyoming will soon be forging ahead with Trump-endorsed candidate Harriet Hageman.

    Liz Cheney’s defeat means all but two Republicans who voted for Trump’s impeachment will soon be out of Congress.

    Eight down, two to go.
