twister2254 Liz Cheney was no loss to the Republican Party and she hardly resembles Lincoln. She was and is a Democrat Or put another way...... Our Father's Republican Party Is Dead. RIP = GOP Republican party Somebody needs to tell her. It’s still the party of Lincoln, Teddy, Reagan and Trump. We understand and that’s all that matters. Democrats and RINO’s are lost in space.

Yeah I think y’all can put to rest the “Party of Lincoln” nonsense. They stopped being the “Party of Lincoln” with Nixon and Goldwater. Boo hoo. Moving on. The party of President Lincoln is dead. Peggy Cheney was a democrat infiltrating republicans. RINO = Republican In Name Only Thankfully. It's long overdue.

You people refuse to understand 🙄 it’s not about Trump. Never was…

A$AP Rocky's Alleged Victim A$AP Relli Thrilled Cops Believed Him in Shooting CaseA$AP Rocky is in hot water after being charged with assault for an alleged shooting in Hollywood ... and the person claiming to be the victim couldn't be happier. Industry 🎶 Contracts = 🩸 🐐 that's the 1 way to fame, power! Now, Hollywood is designed to have 🎶 artists, labels etc to go after each other. The more noises they make, the more their popularity goes up! Truth This guy is a menace!!! I don't get it

Bye Lizard!! 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 Why is this not labeled opinion trash ? The core reason T has the following he has is b/c he hates D.C. and career politicians for what they have done to the country. It doesn't matter to him if you are R or D. People tolerate all the BS that comes along with him because they want DC cleaned up that badly.

BS, there are still plenty of swamp dewellers. She was never in it for anything her own personal enrichment. She is part of the problem!! She voted against voting rights, celebrated overturning Roe, voted against gun regulations, and was against marriage equality until she had to make it right with her sister. We want leaders of the 2000s not 1800s. Good riddance

Funny how her father was the evilest man alive until Trump came along. Media found their new boogeyman and the Cheneys became adorned because they spoke out against the new boogeyman. Funny how that works. Just report the news without your obvious political slant Too much money and power tied to these families.

Good riddance.

Cheney braces for loss as Trump tested in Wyoming and AlaskaWyoming Rep. Liz Cheney , a leader in the Republican resistance to former President Donald Trump , is fighting to save her seat in the U.S. House on Tuesday as voters weigh in on the direction of the GOP. She should brace for a loss on the whole J6 Committee failure as well. She could get even with Republicans who trashed her by running in 2024 as an independent presidential candidate. Like Stein pulled more votes from Hillary than from Trump, she would pull more votes from the Repub candidate than from the Democrat candidate. EC elects the Democrat Go Liz! Go. Just go! Go away.

There is no Republican Party. They all pretty much sold out to Trump party. Quite saddening! Yeah, the warmonger Republicans, who make all their money sending our young off to die in war, so that they can swindle the US Government with porkbelly contracts. That party IS gone, and thank God it is. No, Liz Cheney is a sleeper democrat. She in no way represents the Republican party, past or present. She represents herself. LOSER!

Good Riddance to Bad Rubbish I’ll take that party over the party of Joseph Stalin… Maybe she’ll come back in 30 years as somebody’s vice president and bullshit her way through an illegal war and embarrass her UN ambassador, manifest torture camps, and actualize herself as one of the greatest American war criminals since George W. Bush‘s vice president

They haven't been the party of Lincoln since the 1950s. you are forgetting a truth... THE ONLY THING CONSTANT IS CHANGE. you just became the hydrant Liz. All this drivel about Cheney. It's really simple, when you're elected to office you're supposed to do what your electors put you there for and 'getting Trump' wasn't it. Therefore we send you packing. A lot more of it coming.

I like how they list the NGO as a 'center-right' organization when none of their policies are conservative. Green corporate welfare? Carbon taxes? Open borders? Is this a joke? Liz Cheney has been lackluster in the GOP. Being voted out is the end of the anti-Trump GOP era. HAHAHAHAHA! Liz Cheney represented her own interests. Her job was to represent the interests of the people who elected her, but she showed time and time again that she couldn't care less about them. I love the taste of salty leftist tears 😂😂😂

The fact that the Republican party was taken over by a pathetic con man says a lot about what the Republican party had already become. Like, yay! What a load of BS …. You mean the GQP is the party of white supremacists extremist KLANSMAN that's it nytimes Liz should have been representing her constituents, not the party.

Her father left office with 13% approval. Nice try. All of the sudden Liz Cheney is a 'national hero', GTHOH I guess it’s better than the “Party of Stalin”.

👍🙂 She hasn't ruled out running for president in 2024. The press and the left (really the same thing) continue to get this wrong. The so called 'old' Republican party stopped listening to its voters. Trump does listen to them and knows what they want. It didn't have to be Trump, but he was the first to come along.

How about they stop trying to represent a “party” and start representing the people again. How about they actually try to create unity rather than always division. So frustrating. She represented EVERYTHING that was wrong with the GOP! Putting herself in front of her constituents! It marks a massive repudiation of the tactics of the left for the past several years. Get used to it.

Just because you want people to think of it that way doesnt make it so. Party of Lincoln? I don't think so. She was elected to represent the people of Wyoming yet she did not. That's why she is gone. The Republican Party no longer exists. It is now a fascist cult It’s still the party of Lincoln! Wyoming is just cleaning out the trash which happens to include comrade Liz!

Lol, they haven't been the party of Lincoln for a very long time.
