Liz Cheney Loses Her Left-Wing Democrat Support With One Tweet

Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming became the darling of liberal Democrats after she turned against then-President Donald Trump following the Jan. 6, 2021 incident at the U.S. Capitol Building and take a co-chairman spot on the House committee put together by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to look into it.

But any left-wing goodwill the Wyoming Republican may have built up distancing herself from Trump and, by default, his congressional allies, has now vanished, and with a single tweet.

Cheney came out on Friday in support of the U.S. Supreme Court’s opinion overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.

“I have always been strongly pro-life,” the representative said in a tweet. “Today’s ruling by the Supreme Court returns power to the states and the people of the states to address the issue of abortion under state law.”

Her liberal supporters, some of whom apparently believed she had become one of them, did not appreciate her stance.

“Oh God. It was going so well, Liz,” Michael Seitzman said.

“Just when i started to admire u,” actress Rosie O’Donnell added.

“Some Democrats were literally saying only days ago they would support Liz Cheney for President. How far we have fallen. How transactional the world has become,” Don Winslow said.

“Liz Cheney wants you to carry your rapists child to term. Liz Cheney does not care if you were raped by a family member. You will deliver that child. Your body is not yours. It belongs to the Republican party. See your ‘freedom’ and ‘democracy’ hero below,” he added.

“Just shows that being on the right side of one issue doesn’t make you a good person. She’s still a Cheney, ffs,” talk host Nicole Sandler noted.

Cheney’s backlash from the Democrat left comes as her campaign is actually appealing to Democrats in her state to switch parties so they can vote for her in her upcoming primary, where she trails a Trump-backed challenger, Harriet Hageman, by double digits.

“How do I change my party affiliation to register as a Republican so I can vote for Liz?” the mailer notes.

“To change your party affiliation or to declare a new affiliation, complete the Wyoming Voter Registration Application & Change Form and submit it to your county clerk’s office no later than 14 days before the primary election,” it adds.

“You may also change your party affiliation at your polling place on the day of the primary or general election, or when requesting an absentee ballot,” the mailer says, noting the GOP primary in Wyoming is Aug. 16.

The Blaze adds:

Wyoming Democratic Party chair Joseph Barbuto got a mailer from the incumbent Republican lawmaker’s campaign, according to the New York Times — the outlet reported that Barbuto said that his social media feeds during the last week had been filled with Democrats noting that they had gotten Cheney campaign mailers.

“I haven’t had any Republicans share online or tell me that they received it,” Barbuto noted on Thursday, according to the Times.

“Even if every Democrat in the state switched over,” Barbuto said, “I don’t think it’d be enough to help her.”

Some much for Liz’s Dem outreach effort. Turns out she’s just not popular on either side of the aisle.
