Dick Cheney tears into ‘coward’ Trump: Bush’s VP calls him biggest ‘threat to the Republic’ in ‘our nation’s 246-year history’ and a ‘real man wouldn’t lie to his supporter’ in campaign ad for daughter Liz
Dick Cheney eviscerated Donald Trump as the greatest threat to the United States of all time in a new campaign ad for his daughter, Rep. Liz Cheney, who is facing steep primary prospects.
‘In our nation’s 246 year history there has never been an individual who is a greater threat to our Republic than Donald Trump,’ Cheney said in a new clip.
The congresswoman brought out her 81-year-old former vice president dad as a last ditch effort to defy recent polling that puts her squarely behind primary rival Harriet Hageman ahead of an Aug. 16 primary.
Hageman led Cheney by more than 20 points in a late July poll by the Casper-Star Tribune and Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy.
The challenger held a 52-percent majority in the survey, while just 30 percent of people backed Cheney. Eleven percent said they were undecided.
Hageman is former President Trump’s choice to unseat Cheney for her loud opposition to his election fraud claims and key role in the Jan. 6 subcommittee.
‘He tried to steal the last election with lies and violence to keep himself in power after the voters had rejected him,’ Cheney said. ‘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.’
‘Lynn and I are so proud of liz for standing up for the truth doing whats right,’ the vice president added. ‘Liz is fearless. She never backs down from a fight and there is nothing more important she will ever do than make sure Donald Trump is never again near the Oval Office.’
Cheney’s high-profile role on the Jan. 6 committee has earned her praise from across the aisle – but criticism from Trump-allied Republicans who say she is out of touch with voters back at home.
Last week Cheney touted an endorsement from Academy Award-winning actor ‘Yellowstone’ star Kevin Costner.
Hageman mocked the Hollywood endorsement. ‘I’ll take the support of the people of Wyoming any day of the week over a liberal actor who voted for Joe Biden,’ she told DailyMail.com.
Ten House Republicans – including Cheney – voted to impeach Trump. Four of those Republicans have announced their retirements and the other six have faced a revenge campaign from Trump.
Three of those Republicans were on the ballot on Tuesday – Rep. Peter Meijer of Michigan lost to Trump-backed John Gibbs, but Washington Republican Reps. Jaime Huerrera-Beutler and Dan Newhouse look poised to advance to the general election as votes are still being counted.
