Liz Cheney is worse than a RINO.
Now she is actively helping Democrats.
And Cheney just trolled Kari Lake on Twitter with these two words.
After losing her seat in the primary by one of the largest margins for an incumbent in history, Liz Cheney has made it her mission to stop Republican Trump supporters from taking office.
And she isn’t just backing establishment candidates in primaries, she is actively trying to help Democrats win.
One candidate that Liz Cheney had in her crosshairs was Kari Lake, who ran for Governor in Arizona.
Leading up to the election, Liz Cheney stated, “I am going to do everything I can to make sure Kari Lake is not elected.”
Cheney ran $500,000 in television ads in Arizona urging voters not to support Lake.
Following the ads, Lake’s campaign saw a last-minute surge in fundraising, leading Lake to publicly thank Cheney.
“In fact, my team tells me your commercial should add another 10 points to our lead!” Lake wrote in a press release she shared on Twitter. “I guess that’s why they call the Cheney anti-endorsement the gift that keeps on giving.”
Lake even appeared on Fox News and called Cheney’s attack on her a gift to her campaign.
“I mean, the people of Wyoming can’t stand her. I’m pretty much sure that the people of Arizona don’t like Liz Cheney,” she said.
“You know, here’s the deal, Maria, the Republican Party, the new Republican Party, is the party of ‘We the people.’ It is no longer the party of warmongers,” Lake added. “So Liz Cheney should probably turn in her voter registration. It turns out she really is a Democrat after all.”
Cheney’s attacks on Republican candidates during general elections sure makes it seem like she is now firmly on the Democrats’ team.
When the dust finally settled after election day, Lake appeared to have narrowly lost by half a percentage point.
Liz Cheney then decided to be petty and troll “You’re welcome” in reply to Lake’s tweet thanking her for the anti-endorsement.
You’re welcome, @KariLake. https://t.co/5jVFIprwxS

Of course, it is laughable to think that Cheney’s ad had any impact on Lake’s loss.
The fact remains that Cheney’s attack likely benefited Lake.
It was an extremely close race and in the end Lake didn’t quite pull it off.
It’s especially ridiculous that Cheney would gloat after losing her own primary by 38 points as an incumbent.
Cheney is delusional
But Cheney has grandiose delusions of herself.
After she lost her race, she compared herself to Abraham Lincoln.
“The great original champion of our party, Abraham Lincoln, was defeated in elections for the Senate and the house before he won the most important election of all,” Cheney said.
Cheney has not said whether or not she will run for President either in the Republican Primary or as an Independent.
But when asked by reporters, she claims she hasn’t ruled it out either.
A Cheney Presidential campaign would be an absolute trainwreck.
She has virtually no real support from any side of the political spectrum.
But she may be so deluded to think she somehow has a chance to win the White House.
