‘A Day That Will Go Down In The History Books:’ Joy Reid on Liz Cheney

 

House Republicans voted, via voice vote, to remove Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney as GOP Conference Chair. Joy says, “Cheney isn’t in this for her political ambition, fighting Trump isn't gonna win her any republican prizes. She's in it to salvage what's left of her party, and more importantly, to fight for our democracy.”

  1. “It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong.” Voltaire

    1. @Grumpy Munchkin You know it’s crazy when the fanatical daughter of a war criminal is the only “Sane Voice” in the room, and then you know that’s how Republicans are in serious trouble..

    2. @Grumpy Munchkin Newsome’s recall in California says otherwise. Something your fake news doesn’t cover.

  2. If Republicans had any guts, today’s vote would have been like that scene at the end of “Spartacus”:

    “I am Liz Cheney.” … “I am Liz Cheney” … “I am Liz Cheney.” …

    Instead, they all stood up to say, “I’m Liar Trump’s boot licker.” Well, sit down again for good!

  3. I never dreamed that I would be behind a Chaney on anything, but she is right this is a fight for democracy. Never has anyone sank as low as the current Republican Party. I hope there is enough decency in this country to save our democracy.

    1. Never a truer word said.Dump wants to turn the US into another Russian State.That was Putin’s plan from the very beginning using Dump as his puppet.

  4. Watching the fighting within the GQP is like being a kid, watching your parents go through a divorce. Assuming that both your parents are horrible parents who lie constantly, cheat, steal, and have no interest in taking care of you as their child, that is.

    1. Lol. I saw a show where Jimmy Biden ran the United States into a ditch, and all the useful idiots that voted for him acted like nothing happened.

  5. I have waited for at least 4 years for someone to finally say ‘At long last, have you no decency?’. Never thought it would come from Liz.

    1. @Helene Flamand okay so you are saying when trump said to peacefully protest that meant storm the capitol? Qanon isn’t even related to Republicans.. just like technically progressives aren’t apart of the democrats in theory.. do you know ANYTHING factual about this event? Oh that’s right you watch MSNBC where they straight up lie and spit in your face.. wouldn’t expect you to know that though.

    2. @NBK I have no idea what 45 intended, but I heard what his supporters said: that they were invited to do this. Some repeated that in court. We all heard them. But I would not expect you to know that. ‘What you see and what you hear is not what’s happening’, right? That’s another quote from 45. Unless you think we all suffer from memory loss, you’ll find it increasingly difficult to defend this guy.

    3. That’s because Liz Cheney the Millionaire Politician was one of Trump’s enablers. She agreed with Trump 99% of the time for 4yrs straight. Someone did say it though, Mitt Romney the Republican was first to say it was a LIE and that Trump incited the Insurrection. Some of the others admitted he incited the Insurrection during the 2nd Trial, but joined Trump after their colleagues Led by Mitch McConnell decided not to Vote to convict. *_Liz Cheney however plans to run for Office in the very near Future_* and is looking out for her Political Career by standing up to Trump Republicans. It’s not over. *She need voters to come back to the Republican Party* _(possible the new one)_ *to help her win. Trump’s base is NOT going to Vote for her.* So she needs the other Voters who Voted for Biden. NO ONE Likes her Policies and Political Beliefs.

      _She is also into Fearmongering & exaggerating about the Current Administration. She’s repeating everything Biden said his Campaign and these past 3months in office about working together, democracy, the Constitution, calling out the Media …etc._ I just saw her Interview.

    4. @TheBrownIsland All of this is true. Nonetheless, her move is surprising, considering how cowed her colleagues are.

    1. The enemy of my enemy is my enemy’s enemy. Not more. Not less.

      If you’re fighting against Evil, you must be Good? This woman here is reiding on Orwellian-level doublethink when she claims Cheney is from now on an ally.

    1. @bob land _The GQP has revealed that it was Hunter Biden that sank the Titanic with his laptop, not an iceberg; Joe Biden invented athlete’s foot, twerking, & tornadoes; & Obama is responsible for Pauly Shore movies, the Macarena, & halitosis in dogs.  Nancy Pelosi is making a coat out of dalmatian puppies for AOC and Kamala Harris; George Soros faked the moon landing, while Hillary’s emails are destroying the rain forest._

    2. @bob land *_Deep state Democrats want to take away our motorcycle blindfolds and prevent us from exercising our freedom. They plan to take our blindfolds and give them to illegal immigrants so we can no longer freely ride at high speed wearing our MAGA blindfolds. Are we going to sit by and allow our freedom to be taken away? Ride your motorcycle blindfolded today for Freedom !!I_*

    3. @bob land *_On behalf of Barack Obama, George Soros, and all the deep state liberals who stole this election for Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and Beelzebub, I am authorized to inform all you butthurt MAGA crybabies that next we are coming to steal your household pets, appliances, possum rifles and pickup trucks. After that we will be stealing your cha-cha heels, wigs and zaftig foundation garments. Thank you for your cooperation._*

    4. Stupid why don’t you talk about something that matters like the crisis at the border or grocery prices skyrocketing no gas etc.

    1. There once was an authoratarian leader who promised to make his country great again by limiting immigration and the power of minorities in favor of the White race, who demanded loyalty to him over the country, who loved military parades and other authoratairian leaders, who spread a “big lie”, and who sent his followers to attack the highest legislative chambers of his country and blamed it on the opposition. His name was Hitler, but Trump did all of that too…

    2. @E E EXACTLY! I’ve been saying the same thing. And as my nephew says “THAT PART!” If we’re not careful history will repeat itself.

  6. I have always thought Ms Cheney’s politics, much like those of her war-mongering father more than odious however, in this singular matter she has it spot on. Credit where it’s due, bravo Ms Cheney.

    1. @Upper 90. . .For once, you tell the truth. Yep, Trump was on pace for a million shots in 100 days. Why don’t you try doing the math on that. I’ll help, one million shots in 100 days we have 330 million people in this country. 330 X 100 days equals 33,000 days. So Trump would have been able to vaccinate the entire country in a mere 90 years. But guess what Dr. Einstein Most of those people need TWO SHOTS. So, basically, Donnie was promising to get the virus under control in a century and a half. Do you understand now why we know you’re stupid?

    2. @Mott Hoople Trump was on Pace for $100 million shots and arms in 100 days something Biden was trying to take credit for CNN called them out for it. Not only are your insults at an elementary level but your math is as well

    3. @Mott Hoople – Liz Cheney was kicked out for lying. why is that so hard to unders…. Oh. Ok. You’re brainwashed. That’s right. I keep thinking that you Leftists are capable of critical thinking

    1. @Billy Goat Right, she’s about the only honest Republican left.

      As my Grandfather used to say, “If you want to upset a Democrat, tell them a lie. If you want to upset a Republican, tell them the truth”. This saying has never been more valid than it has these past 4+ years.

  7. She should of given that speech years ago. GOP have dug their own graves. Joy you are right , I thank-you*.

    1. They may well have dug this country’s grave as well. Nazi-Republicans won’t stop with the purging of their ranks of any dissenters.

  8. When Liz becomes the voice of reason there is a serious problem. The republicans cried about cancel culture while canceling their own party member.

  9. Liz is a Brave woman, she shows more courage than the male wimps in the GOP. Go Girl!!! Show them how they are fools!

    1. @Liz Pedano why don’t you look at past history of what this news station said about her CNN and the others before jabbering and now they’re going to stick up for her are you serious WOW.
      so who’s the Liar the news or her now they’re going to wipe her Heine when they used to degrade her like she was a piece of shi*.
      Wow it’s amazing those of us who keep up with reality and those who just think what reality should be because some black woman told you you should wipe your a** with paper towels and Thorn bushes.

    2. MAGA in the kitchen
      MAGA in the hall
      MAGA in the springtime
      MAGA in the fall

      MAGA on the mountaintop
      MAGA on the beach
      MAGA tail a wagga
      Just like a Georgia peach

      MAGA in the Kremlin
      MAGA by yourself
      MAGA with a gremlin
      or with a tiny elf.

      MAGA ’til next Tuesday
      MAGA ’til next June
      MAGA all around the block
      Or maybe on the moon

      MAGA on Uranus
      or Jupiter or Mars
      MAGA in a aeroplane
      and MAGA in your cars.

      MAGA MAGA MAGA
      no matter what the cost.
      because we’re all too stupid
      To accept it that we lost.

  10. This woman, Mrs. Cheney, has my respect. She sleeps great at night. True patriotism. Courage at its finest.

    1. @NBK Mr. Rojas has made it very clear who is the patriot between you and he, and so have you, traitor. I do not support Cheny, nor does Mr. Rojas.. But like Mr. Rojas, I support her decision for standing up for the truth and for her country, neither of which you see in the rest of the GQP. In this case Cheny has proven to be a patriot, and you show your colors insulting a patriot like Mr. Rojas. GTFO.

    2. @Dawn Oceanside What Mr. Rojas has said is true. And so is your comment. We will not forget. She is an alt-right hawk of the worst kind. The fact hat Mr. Rojas replied respectfully to you is worthy also of respect. Trump has killed more than Cheny. I am sorry for your loss and your point is well taken. Namaste.

  11. “If we are to have another contest in the near future of our national existence, I predict that the dividing line will not be Mason and Dixon’s, but between patriotism and intelligence on the one side, and superstition, ambition and ignorance on the other.” – Ulysses S. Grant

    1. The civil war was fought and won but make no mistake the Deep South has never let go of this grudge, they have been patiently biding their time to enact this clear agenda where Race, religion
      honesty mean nothing. They and their cult are united by Anglo Saxon superiority complexes and
      delusional worship of orange grifters who are insane. Sadly nothing lasts forever as free americans
      the right to hate, practice neo nazi agenda’s and peaceful protest ( no guns ) is protected. Amongst
      the party there is a deep rift already with the south leading this charge, no amount of politics will
      diminish this hate the only true solution is secession from a now defunct union so as to avoid
      a civil war that will leave the US open to ” foreign ” agenda’s.
      Yes this sounds very ugly but just look at where we now stand and yes the us capitol was breached by armed insurrectionists who regard no law and cannot be reasoned with.

  12. Liz Cheney stood for what she believes and went out swinging! Liz and Kapp made the ultimate sacrifice in reference to their future careers..

  13. Obviously there’s one person with a backbone has finally stood up. Congratulations ms.cheney

  14. You can try and deflect all you want, but nothing can cover up all the crazy sh!t going on right now. LOL

  15. History has shown that this kind of blind devotion to a single person often ends badly for the devotees.

    1. And in some cases the world. Look at the Nazis and how that devotion worked out for millions of people around the world.

    2. Hitler, Mussolini, Asama BENLATIN HAD ONE THING IN COMMON, BRAINWASHED WASHED WEAK MINDED FOLLOWERS THAT THE ABILITY REASON OR CRITICALLY THINK. WHEN INSANE PEOPLE LIKE TRUMP GAIN POWER IT ALWAY ENDS WITH DEVASTATING TRAGIC RESULTS.
