” … BAIER: So, if you look at the numbers in Wyoming, 70% of Wyoming voted for President Trump, actually more people voted for President Trump than voted for you, a higher percentage voted for President Trump. Now you’re saying you’re dedicating your life to opposing him. So why — we’ll put up those numbers — why should Wyoming voters, say, re-elect you when you’re spending so much energy opposing him? So little opposing Biden?
CHENEY: Well, you’re wrong.
BAIER: No, no. I mean these are the numbers.
CHENEY: No, I’m not disputing the numbers, but I’m disputing your characterization of what I’m doing. I think it’s really important for us to be as strong as possible in defeating the Biden policies. We cannot do that if we enable a lie. We cannot do that if we fail to learn the lessons from the 2020 election. And the people of Wyoming believe deeply in the Constitution, the people of Wyoming know that we must use the Constitution as our shield, that we must defend the Constitution. And so when you look at the challenge that the former president is presenting right now, still today, claiming that the election was stolen, claiming that our electoral process does not accurately reflect the will of the people, no remorse or regret for January 6, continuing to use the language that we know inspired violence in the past—
BAIER: And you’ve said that and … you should because you believe in principle, I get it.
CHENEY: –but I continue to say it though, but I continue to say it because–
BAIER: But for the people of Wyoming who are electing a congressperson to fight for them and to fight against the Biden agenda, why wouldn’t they say, ‘Is this the person that’s going to get it done?’ And that’s what your colleagues are asking.
CHENEY: I’m going to I’m going to answer the question. We all have an obligation. And I would say Fox News, especially, especially Fox News, has a particular obligation to make sure people know the election wasn’t stolen.
BAIER: And we’ve said that numerous times.” Special Report
Comment: Watch the video in the linked interview. Cheney is every bit as obnoxious as her dear ol’ dad. When she was an uber-flunky in the State Department during the run-up to Desert Storm I went to Foggy Bottom to visit her, just to see what she was like. I got the full treatment. She lectured me about the need to invade Iraq, the ABSOLUTE NECESSITY of invading Iraq. She had never been to Iraq. As I have recounted in my memoir, “Tattoo” I was effectively a participant in the Iran-Iraq War. I tried repeatedly to explain to her that the people who attacked us on 9/11 had nothing to do with the Government of Iraq. She would have none of it and implied that there was something seriously wrong with me and that this was made clear by my non-acceptance of the neocon position.
My genealogist wife tells me that my Puritan ancestors and the Cheneys were close associates in the founding of the Massachusetts Bay colony. My God what an awful thought!
People of Wyoming! Get her out of office! pl
