Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney may be gearing up to run for president in 2024, according to Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
During a segment on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” the host speculated that Cheney has been siding with Democrats in an attempt to position herself as an “independent” in the upcoming presidential election.
“So the question is, what was Liz Cheney doing in Manchester, New Hampshire? Of course, there is only one conceivable answer. Liz Cheney plans to run for president of the United States. Now if that sounds demented, yeah, because it is. But it’s also real. Now you may be wondering, if Liz Cheney were to run for president, what exactly would she run on?” Carlson asked.
“So what can we conclude from this behavior? Not looking at what she says, but what she is doing. And the only answer is, Liz Cheney is delusional. She is living on another planet. And on that planet with her is the Republican Party’s fading leadership class, the people who stopped assessing reality or having new thoughts of any kind right around 2003,” he said.
“That’s the era in which they are frozen in amber. And those people are sending Liz Cheney a ton of money, huge amounts of money, because they want her to run for president. Cheney has raised millions of dollars just this year, in part from political action committees run by Mitt Romney and Mitch McConnell and, needless to say, Lindsey Graham,” he said.
“Apparently all of these geniuses think that Liz Cheney has a good shot of being president. So Liz Cheney is this cycle’s Jeb Bush who, by the way, has also given her money because of course, he has,” Carlson said.
“Now, you should know that none of these people, and they are the very same people who feel perfectly empowered to lecture you about what is conservative and what is, not one of these people has said a single word about Liz Cheney’s performance on the House of Representatives January 6th Commission,” he added.
“That commission is now in the process of trying to hunt down and destroy anyone to the right of Adam Kinzinger,” he concluded.
