The problem Cheney and the other never-Trumpers have with Trump and the current Republican Party is that it has exposed the reality of the traditional GOP, pulled back the curtain of dignified phrases and codes to reveal its anti-egalitarian, racist, and undemocratic character.
The “big lie” is not unique to Trump but rather constitutes a long-standing Republican tradition and political practice that, far from distinguishing itself from Trump’s governance, in fact enabled and even created it.
Donald Trump is no longer the President and spends most of his time at his Mar-a-Lago club. He has also lost the use of his Twitter account, which was until recently, his favorite way to connect with his supporters.
Still, the ex-President has his sycophants in Washington DC who are still pushing the message of Trumpism. And no one is a bigger Trump sycophant than Matt Gaetz.
On Thursday, the Florida Congressman flew to Wyoming to attack Liz Cheney. Cheney, a powerful member of Congress, voted to impeach Donald Trump just last week.
Gaetz not only mocked the Wyoming Rep. during his appearance, he took aim at other Republicans as well.
“Our battle is no longer just Republican vs. Democrat,” said the Florida Rep, “it’s not just red team versus blue team. Absolutely not — we’ve got to put America first. Those are the old battles of yesteryear. But people have always come to the great frontiers of Wyoming to win the future — that’s why I’m here.”
Gaetz continued, “The truth is that the establishment in both political parties have teamed up to screw our fellow Americans for generations. The private insider club of Joe Biden, Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney, Nancy Pelosi and Liz Cheney they want to return our government to its default setting: enriching them.”

Donald Trump's Vice Presidential pick Governor Mike Pence said he holds former Republican VP Dick Cheney "in really high regard in his role as vice president" and like Cheney, he aspires to be “a very active vice president.”

Few Americans would object to a bust honoring Dick Cheney if it noted his part in creating a more radical form of Islamic terrorism
Arkansas GOP Senator Tom Cotton wants to put chickenhawk Dick Cheney back into a position of political power.
With the Republicans in the House desperate for a new leader, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) has suggested that former vice president Dick Cheney be the next Speaker of the House.
President Obama laid out his comprehensive foreign policy ideology while hammering a diverse group of critics that ranged from Dick Cheney to Vladimir Putin, to Donald Trump.
In a rare and stunning moment, the truth was revealed on Fox News Sunday as host Chris Wallace exposed Dick Cheney's record of failure on stopping Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.
As another Democratic senator announced, her support for the Iran deal increasingly desperate Republicans are turning to former Vice President Dick Cheney to give a major address against the deal.

The Religious Right thinks, despite all the evidence, that doubling down on anti-gay bigotry will have better results than Indiana
The neo-con's solution has been fulfilling Netanyahu's twenty-three year campaign for Americans to die in a war with the Islamic Republic of Iran primarily because Israel wants to be the only Middle East nation with an American-provided nuclear arsenal.
The latest outrage, the open letter signed by 47 Republican senators, is the greatest sign to date that the spoiled little children are throwing a fit and are furious they are not allowed to be president and control foreign policy.
This week a MoveOn.org petition began circulating for the purpose of prosecuting Speaker of the House John A. Boehner for willfully breaking a federal law when he knowingly violated the 216 year-old Logan Act.
What makes Netanyahu and Republicans 'condescending insult' even more infuriating and egregious is that he is demanding half-a-billion dollars more from American taxpayers for Israel's military; more on that later.
During Monday night's broadcast of The Daily Show, host Jon Stewart addressed the recent revelation that NBC News anchor Brian Williams had made false claims about taking rocket fire during a helicopter ride in Iraq in 2003.
Like every common criminal, or once-convicted felon, who continues to escape punishment for violating the law, Boehner continues his unethical, and now illegal, behavior because he truly believes he IS above the law. It is time to disabuse Boehner of that belief and restore the American people's faith in the nation's justice system.
