Liz Cheney Goes on Fox News, Loses Her Ever-Loving Mind

Apparently, Liz Cheney’s ouster from leadership has taught her nothing.

She went on Fox News this evening with Bret Baier. Instead of trying to reconcile with voters or show that she’s focused on moving forward and combating Joe Biden, the Wyoming congresswoman lost her ever-loving mind, ranting about “The Big Lie” and refusing to hold Democrats accountable for anything. She even managed to attack Fox News directly, which is an odd thing to do when you are being interviewed by someone as straight and level as Baier.


Here are the clips courtesy of Curtis Houck over at Newsbusters (a must-follow if you are on Twitter).

Cheney’s arrogance seethes through these clips, which is ironic given that would be one of her chief criticisms of Trump. Baier is dead-on in pressing her about where her priorities are. Why would any Republican dedicate their life to stopping a former Republican president? Where was this fire when it came to opposing Democrats, who are ostensibly Cheney’s opposition?

It gets worse, though. After Cheney gets visibly upset with Baier pressing her, she deflects by going nuts on Fox News.


As usual, she pivots to her Trump Derangement Syndrome:

“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. Fox News needs to make sure that the American people…”

As Baier interrupted her, telling her that Fox has done that (and angered some viewers in the process), Cheney harrumphed that he was asking the questions and should let her finish then blathered on about needing a peaceful transition of power – as if that hasn’t happened.

I suppose you have to give her credit for going all in. She’s going to burn down every single formerly friendly Republican entity on her way out the door.

But there was one final clip that should really get your blood pumping. Baier asked her about spreading a false story about Russian bounties which was propagated extensively to attack Trump during the 2020 election. I’ve written extensively on that so click here and here for background.

This was her answer.


She has no regrets? The story was false, so how exactly does that confirm any of her priors? This just shows that Cheney has no principles and is guided by nothing but a blind thirst for power. This is a woman who went from the backbench to leadership in just four years. That was almost certainly due to her family’s name and not her qualifications (as her floundering performance would later show). Instead of showing some humility and just admitting she was wrong here, she doubles down, once again perpetuating a lie that has been used to prolong the war in Afghanistan. How war-hungry can one person be?

What Cheney did in this interview is validate every criticism recently leveled against her. Forget about Trump. This is not a woman who needs to be anywhere near Republican leadership. Heck, I’m pretty sure she has no business being in the party at all at this point. She is obviously pushing this martyrdom act to raise her profile, recognizing that Trump has derailed her previous path to power (no doubt, she wanted to be Speaker one day). If she cared one iota about the truth, she’d correct her lies on Russian bounties, focus on Joe Biden, and help Republicans win in 2022. Instead, she’s operating as a pawn for left-wing media and trashing every bastion of conservatism along the way.


Good riddance to this woman, and hopefully, Wyoming gets rid of her for good next year.
