Dick Cheney ‘Deeply Disappointed’ in GOP

Former Vice President Dick Cheney said he was “deeply disappointed” in Republican leadership over its response to the January 6 Capitol riot.

Cheney and his daughter, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), were the only two members of the GOP on Capitol Hill for the incident’s one-year anniversary on Thursday.

The former vice president told an ABC reporter he decided to attend because of the event’s historical importance.

“I’m deeply disappointed we don’t have better leadership in the Republican Party to restore the Constitution,” Cheney said. “It’s not a leadership that resembles any of the folks I knew when I was here for 10 years.”

“I’m deeply disappointed we don’t have better leadership in the Republican Party to restore the Constitution,” he added.

One by one, Democratic House members approached Cheney to shake his hand.

However, the Democrats received criticism for doing so, with some accusing them of hypocrisy.

“Dick Cheney has done more to hurt American democracy than almost anyone alive. He is not your friend,” the Gravel Institute tweeted.

“Dick Cheney being warmly embraced by Democrats on the House floor is a fitting symbol of what January 6 really represents to the future of America,” Saagar Enjeti, co-host of Breaking Points, tweeted.

    As a committed conservative, I am deeply disappointed in what Dick Chaney has to say today. Wow, what a change in the past twenty years. He is one of the best things that Democrats have going for them, second only to his daughter, Liz.

  2. Eagle says:

    I must agree with Dick. Republicans have no backbone. They were there and knew Pelosi left the Capitol unsecured and the FBI had implants to lure and guide Trump supporters into the Pelosi trap for her excuse to impeach Trump again. All of congress cowered and hid rather than face their constituents. And the democrats will try to pin insurrection on Trump to keep him from any office ever again. Their goal from his first day as a candidate.
