Dick Cheney started out the video, “In our nation’s 246-year history, there has never been an individual who is a greater threat to our Republic than Donald Trump.”
“He is a coward. A real man wouldn’t lie to his supporters,” the former vice president said. “He lost his election and he lost big. I know it, he knows it and deep down I think most Republicans know it.”
He continued, “Lynne and I are so proud of Liz for standing up for the truth, doing what is right, honoring her oath to the Constitution when so many in our own party are too scared to do so.”

“This is nothing more than a job application for CNN or MSNBC,” a former senior advisor to Trump, Jason Miller, wrote on Twitter.
A former White House aide under the Trump administration also tweeted, “Imagine being so desperate that you have to call on daddy to come defend you.”

Dick Cheney as VP was the chief advocate of the disastrous war in Iraq that killed up to a million people, unconstitutional government surveillance programs, torture, and many other horrific policies.
He should have no standing to accuse anyone of being a threat to our Republic. https://t.co/hTLHi5GBxf

Just like the democrats, when they say "democracy" or "republic", they mean "my ability to maintain power".
And it's a system so fragile that it can apparently be brought down by one reality show host who they can't control. https://t.co/bbK59L28k7

Despite his criticism of Trump, Dick Cheney said in 2016 that he would support Trump for president.
Liz Cheney was trailing her primary challenger, Harriet Hageman, by 22% in a poll conducted in July.
Costner was seen wearing an “I’m for Liz Cheney” t-shirt, to which the lawmaker responded, “Real men put country over party.”

Hageman told the U.K. Daily Mail, “‘Yellowstone’ is a good show, but Kevin Costner is a pretend rancher in a Hollywood production shot mostly in Montana, not Wyoming.”
She added, “And I’d bet that if he had to work a real ranch for a day, he’d call his agent to get him out of there.”

Hageman also said, “I’ll take the support of the people of Wyoming any day of the week over a liberal actor who voted for Joe Biden.”
