Trump/Cheney feud continues: ‘She is a smug fool’
Former President Donald Trump and Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) are still at odds, with Trump calling her a “smug fool” after she implored the House to support a criminal contempt vote against former White House aide Steve Bannon.
“Low-polling Liz Cheney (19%) is actually very bad news for the Democrats, people absolutely cannot stand her as she fights for the people that have decimated her and her father for many years,” Trump said.
“She is a smug fool, and the great State of Wyoming, together with the Republican Party, fully understands her act. To look at her is to despise her,” Trump added. “Hopefully she will continue down this unsustainable path and she will soon be gone!”
Cheney, who voted to impeach Trump and serves as vice chairwoman of the Jan. 6 Special Committee, asked her fellow Republican House members to hold Bannon in contempt.
“I urge you to do what you know is right, to think of the long arc of history. We are told that it bends towards justice. But it does so only because of the actions of men and women in positions of public trust,” Cheney said during Wednesday’s meeting.
