Remember when you were a kid and you saw your sibling or a friend getting caught red-handed for doing something naughty?
And wide-eyed, you said…Ooooh boy, they’re gonna get it now!
That was my thought when I read this. Ooooh… Liz Cheney is gonna get it.
Cheney slams Trump on ‘big lie’ over election
“The 2020 presidential election was not stolen,” Cheney tweeted. “Anyone who claims it was is spreading THE BIG LIE, turning their back on the rule of law, and poisoning our democratic system.”
Cheney’s tweet came in response to a statement earlier Monday morning from Trump, who called President Biden‘s victory in the November 2020 election “the big lie.”
“The Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020 will be, from this day forth, known as THE BIG LIE!” Trump said in the statement.

The Wyoming congresswoman has found herself at the center of a political storm within the Republican Party after she voted in favor of impeaching Trump following the deadly Jan. 6 Capitol riot. Shortly after her vote, the Wyoming GOP voted to censure her and several ardent Trump allies in Congress called for her to be removed from power as House Republican Conference Chair.
Trump has vowed to endorse any Republican primary candidate who runs against Cheney in the upcoming 2022 midterm elections.
During a recent House policy retreat in Florida, which Cheney did not invite Trump to, the congresswoman appeared to take a dig at Trump. When asked what sort of role she would like to see Trump take in the upcoming elections, Cheney said she believed “elected leaders” like Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) were the leaders of the GOP.
