Liz Cheney Mocked Over Her Reaction to Actor's T-Shirt Endorsing Her

Share

Twitter users are making fun of Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) over her reaction to a photo posted by a celebrity endorsing her.

On Monday, Cheney shared a photo of actor Kevin Costner wearing a t-shirt that says, “I’m for Liz Cheney.”

She responded in the caption, “Real men put country over party.”

Cheney’s tweet garnered several reactions.

Donald Trump Jr. wrote, “BREAKING: A leftwing carpetbagger from Hollywood endorses a leftwing carpetbagger from Virginia.”

Actor Adam Baldwin tweeted, “After you lose this year and are gone from elected office in January, where do you believe that T-shirt ends up?”

Did Cheney deserve to be mocked?

Washington Times columnist Tim Murtaugh suggested that “the funny part is that [Liz Cheney] believes that a Kevin Costner endorsement helps her in Wyoming.”

During a segment of Anderson Cooper’s show on CNN over the weekend, Wyoming voters were asked if they would back Cheney.

“Hell no!” a Trump supporter said.

She explained, “She’s done us dirty… look at how she’s done Trump. I’m a Trump fan,” adding, “She’s supposed to be supporting him. She’s a Republican, for crying out loud.”

Another voter said “absolutely not” when asked if he would vote for Cheney.

A third told the network she thinks Cheney had already had “three [terms] too many.”

Cheney has received criticism over her work with the committee investigating the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

The New York Times noted last month that Cheney “has emerged as the lead narrator and chief accuser, coaxing reluctant former officials to come forward, issuing stern warnings against witness tampering and drawing out the story one damning fact at a time to argue that former President Donald J. Trump betrayed the Constitution out of hunger for power.”

In July 2021, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) appointed Cheney to the committee.
