Trump Celebrates Ousting of Cheney from Republican Leadership: 'Horrible Human Being'
'She has no personality or anything good having to do with politics'
Donald Trump celebrated Rep. Liz Cheney's ousting from her House Republican leadership role, calling her a "horrible human being."
Trump wrote in a statement issued after Cheney was voted out:
“Liz Cheney is a bitter, horrible human being."
“I watched her yesterday and realized how bad she is for the Republican Party."
"She has no personality or anything good having to do with politics or our Country.”
Cheney defended her repeated unprompted criticism of Trump.
“I will not sit back and watch in silence while others lead our party down a path that abandons the rule of law and joins the former president’s crusade to undermine our democracy,” she said.
Trump said Cheney was no more than a political thorn working to undermine the Republican party.
“She is a talking point for Democrats, whether that means the Border, the gas lines, inflation, or destroying our economy,” he said.
On Wednesday, House Republicans acted swiftly to remove Cheney, replacing her with Rep. Elise Stefanick.
Trump also blasted the Cheney family for their war-mongering.
“She is a warmonger whose family stupidly pushed us into the never-ending Middle East Disaster, draining our wealth and depleting our Great Military, the worst decision in our Country’s history,” he said.
Trump then predicted the leftist media would recruit Cheney to attack Republicans.
“I look forward to soon watching her as a Paid Contributor on CNN or MSDNC!” he wrote.
Trump called Cheney a “poor leader, a major Democrat talking point, a warmonger, and a person with absolutely no personality or heart.”
“As a representative of the Great State of Wyoming, Liz Cheney is bad for our country and bad for herself,” Trump continued.
Trump added the majority of the Republican party supported Cheney’s ouster, despite media focus on leadership disruption.
“Almost everyone in the Republican Party, including 90% of Wyoming, looks forward to her ouster—and that includes me!” he concluded.
Cheney vowed to continue leading the party away from Trump.
“The party is going to come back stronger, and I’m going to lead the efforts to do it,” she told reporters.
