Liz Cheney Ponders Third-Party Run To Defeat Trump

Liz Cheney, the former Wyoming Republican representative who was unceremoniously run out of office in her latest primary bid, now thinks she has the chops to be president. The Washington Post revealed she is considering a third-party bid for the White House.

This is just the next phase in her rabid hatred of former President Donald Trump. Cheney turned on her own party when she co-chaired the House Jan. 6 committee’s witch hunt of the 45th president.

Her constituents immediately let her know how they felt about having a traitor in the ranks. Cheney lost her reelection run by a staggering 37 points.

It is truly a wonder that some people think so much of themselves that they believe they have a chance to win election to the White House. Delusional is the appropriate term.

Cheney’s aversion to Trump is hardly news, but she regurgitated it anyway in several recent interviews. The Republican cited extreme dangers to the Republic not only with his reelection but if the GOP maintains control of the House next year.

In the Post interview published Tuesday, Cheney asserted, “We face threats that could be existential to the United States, and we need a candidate who is going to be able to deal with and address and confront all of those challenges.”

The list of third-party candidates is already long and potentially getting longer. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Cornel West are independents in the running, the Green Party offers Jill Stein while Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) is rumored as possibly joining the No Labels ticket.

Cheney indicated she is considering running either as a third-party “conservative” or on a ticket that would feature a Republican and a Democrat.

There is a strong chance the former representative is overvaluing her worth to Democrats. She became a darling of the left as the top Republican in the House Jan. 6 committee, but she was merely a “useful idiot” for them.

There is no chance Democrats will support her in a run for the White House, and Wyoming Republicans already demonstrated their distaste for someone with no party loyalty. Cheney would have no effect on the 2024 race were she to decide to throw her hat[e] into the ring.
