Republicans, repeat after Dick—Donald Trump is a coward and the greatest individual threat to the United States of America:
In our nation’s 246 years, there has never been an individual who is a greater threat to our Republic than Donald Trump. He tried to steal the last election using lies and violence to keep himself in power after the voters had rejected him. 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 what’s right, honoring her oath to the Constitution when so many in our party are too scared to do so. Liz is fearless. She never backs down from a fight. There is nothing more important she will ever do than lead the effort to make sure Donald Trump is never again near the Oval Office [Dick Cheney, campaign ad for Liz Cheney, posted 2022.08.04].
Saying these words does not exonerate Dick Cheney for all the ills he brought upon this nation by fostering the Bush II Presidency. Repeating Cheney’s words will not exonerate Republicans for capitulating to the fascism of Donald Trump. But Dick Cheney is speaking the truth about the menace Donald Trump poses to our Republic. If a majority of Republican voters (maybe fewer than that, but let’s not take chances) will say Cheney’s words publicly and vote accordingly, they will save us from the disaster of a Trump return to the White House and a resumption of Trump’s American carnage. We can remove Donald Trump from the public spotlight and get back to critiquing the other practical and philosophical hazards endemic to the Republican Party.
