Republican Wyoming representative Liz Cheney fired back at Texas Senator Ted Cruz for accusing him of not defending his wife and father from attacks by former president Donald Trump.
Ted said: “I look at the situation of Liz Cheney, and I just think it’s sad. I’ve always liked her, I haven’t agreed with her on everything. I think she’s a bit too eager to send in the Marines and to invade countries all over the planet.
“But I’ve always liked her, and I think she falls into the category of people who Donald Trump just broke, just shattered. She hates Donald Trump so much that it just has overridden everything in her system.
“She’s lashing out at Trump and Republicans and everything, and she’s become a Democrat, and it’s sad to watch what has happened.
“It is Trump derangement syndrome.”
Liz Cheney spoke with CNN’s h Melanie Zanona and said:
“Trump broke Ted Cruz.
“A real man would be defending his wife, and his father, and the Constitution.”
Earlier Ted told Liz to go join the Dem Party.
Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) blasted Representative Liz Cheney (R., Wyo.) on Saturday, suggesting that if she launches a bid for president in 2024, it should be as a Democrat.
Cruz’s comment came in response to a tweet by CNN’s The Lead, which featured a video of a panel discussing the possibility of Cheney running in the next presidential cycle.
“Is there a lane for Liz Cheney in New Hampshire in 2024?” the CNN tweet asked.
“Yes. It’s called the Democratic primary,” Cruz replied.
I know you’re posturing for the secessionist vote, Ted. But my party, the Republican party, saved the Union. You swore an oath to the Constitution. Act like it. https://t.co/YyQ1XHRhCY— Liz Cheney (@Liz_Cheney) November 13, 2021
