Former Vice President Dick Cheney delivered a stunning rebuke of former President Donald Trump, calling him a “coward.”
He made the comments during a campaign advertisement he filmed for his daughter, Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney.
The Republican lawmaker is facing the end of her political career after she waged a political jihad against the former president and conservative Republicans.
Cheney’s scathing attack is unlikely to change his daughter’s political fate.
“In our nation’s 246-year history, there has never been an individual who is a greater threat to our republic than Donald Trump,” the frail-looking former vice president said.
“He tried to steal the last election using lies and violence to keep himself in power after the voters had rejected him,” he continued.
“He is a coward. A real man wouldn’t lie to his supporters. He lost his election and he lost big. I know it, he knows it and deep down I think most Republicans know it,” Cheney said. “Lynne and I are so proud of Liz for standing up for the truth, doing what is right, honoring her oath to the Constitution when so many in our own party are too scared to do so.”
