Simpson Backs Cheney, Calls Trump Support ‘Strange Thing’
Written by dariandudrick on May 18, 2021
Former Wyoming U.S. Sen. Al Simpson continued to defend U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney on KODI’s “Speak Your Piece with Darian Dudrick” Tuesday morning.
The congresswoman was ousted by House Republicans last week from the No. 3 leadership spot as GOP Conference chair.
The move came after Cheney’s relentless comments about former President Donald Trump. She accuses him of inciting the Jan. 6 attack at the Capitol, even voting to impeach him. She has talked about Trump’s “dangerous lies” about the 2020 election being stolen from him, adding she’s determined to make sure he “never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office.”
“They wanted to get rid of Liz because she had it with Trump, and there are plenty of people in the House who have not had it with Trump,” Simpson said.
“It’s a strange thing to put your trust in a past president who is basically filled with revenge and hatred.”
