Donald Trump shocked the media and the political establishment when he defeated Hilary Clinton in 2016.
But it wasn’t just Democrats who were upset about it.
And Liz Cheney is about to make one announcement that no one saw coming.
Not her father’s Republican Party
One of the best things Donald Trump accomplished was moving the Republican Party away from the control of Bush/Cheney neoconservatives.
Back when Dick Cheney was Vice President, anti-war liberals loathed him.
Of course, that was back when we still had an anti-war Left, before Barack Obama made drone-striking hospitals cool.
These days Dick Cheney’s daughter, Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) is most well known for voting to impeach President Trump and being one of only two Republicans that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has allowed on her January 6 witch hunt committee.
These actions have earned her the scorn of conservatives and the adoration of some on the Left.
Recently, CNN’s Jake Tapper made a plea for her to launch a bid for the White House.
“You’ve made it clear you don’t think Donald Trump shouldn’t be trusted with the presidency again. Are you willing to run for president to try to stop him? At least in part?” Tapper asked.
Cheney said, “I haven’t really at this point. I’ve 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 focus on the work that I have to do to represent the people of Wyoming. I’ll make a decision about 2024 down the road.”
While certainly not an announcement, that wasn’t exactly the resounding “no” you would expect.
She would be lucky to be elected dogcatcher
Even with the endorsement of fake news pundits, the idea of Liz Cheney running for President is laughable.
There is no chance whatsoever that she could secure even a handful of Republican delegates, much less the GOP nomination.
Conservatives absolutely despise her.
And even though her Never-Trump bona fides have won her the admiration of leftists, that’s a far cry from the Democrat Party nominating a Cheney.
Even if they did, Liz Cheney would get easily wiped out by either Donald Trump or Ron DeSantis in November.
Her performance would be even worse than when Walter Mondale ran against Ronald Reagan in 1984.
Except even Mondale could win his own state.
Liz Cheney is poised for a shellacking in the upcoming Wyoming primary.
She is currently polling 22 points behind her Trump-endorsed primary challenger, Harriet Hageman.
Her approval rating in her home state sits at 27 percent.
Much of her campaign strategy hinges on convincing Democrats to cross over and vote for her in the Republican primary.
There’s just one problem though, Wyoming doesn’t have enough Democrats to make up the deficit.
Liz Cheney’s political career is on its last legs, and one thing every American can celebrate is there will be no more Cheney’s in the White House.
