OJ Simpson Praises Liz Cheney: She's ‘Standing Up for the Truth’
'Right now, I’m kind of a fan of Liz Cheney'
Former professional American football player, OJ Simpson, praised embattled Republican House Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY), saying she is "standing up for the truth."
Simpson said “the reason I didn’t like her, had to do with her father,” former Vice President Dick Cheney.
The Juice quoted Voltaire, saying “‘patriotism was the enemy of mankind,'” in his reason behind standing up for Liz Cheney.
He said he then “thought about that a little bit.”
Simpson added he “was not a fan of Liz Cheney.”
Then he added, “don’t get me wrong, I’m 50/50 on her politics, but I didn’t like her."
"And then I just realized recently, the reason I didn’t like her had to do with her father,” he said.
He then described Cheney's father as “probably my least favorite politician of my adult life.”
Simpson then pondered the Republican Party:
"It seemed that fact-based truth and honesty seem to be the enemy of many of these Republican politicians.”
Simpson, who has a questionable relationship with the truth, said:
“Liz Cheney stands up for the truth. That’s gotten her a lot of heat.”
“She may lose her position in the party,” he lamented.
“She may even lose her career as a politician.”
The six-time Pro Bowl-er then praised Cheney for “standing up for the truth. That’s something her father wouldn’t have done.”
This is why “right now, I’m kind of a fan of Liz Cheney.”
Simpson then ended his statement by telling listeners to “get your shots” for the coronavirus.
In January, Cheney's popularity began to take a nosedive after she voted to impeach President Donald Trump.
Earlier this month, Cheney has urged Republicans to "steer away" from the "Trump cult of personality" as her polarity plummeted even further.
Cheney turned to the leftist establishment media for help by writing an op-ed in The Washington Post, asserting that "the GOP is at a turning point" and "history is watching us."
"His message: I am still the rightful president, and President Biden is illegitimate," she wrote.
"Trump repeats these words now with full knowledge that exactly this type of language provoked violence on Jan. 6."
