Twitter Users Hate Agreeing With Dick Cheney About Donald Trump

Huffington Post - Thu Aug 4 22:26

Former Vice President Dick Cheney put many Twitter users in a weird spot on Thursday when he released a campaign ad for Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), his daughter, that condemned former President Donald Trump.

It’s a risky move, since Trump supporter Harriet Hageman is 22 percentage points ahead of Cheney a month before the primary, according to a poll from The Casper Star-Tribune.

In the ad, Dick Cheney calls Trump the greatest threat to the republic in its 246-year history for trying “to steal the last election using lies and violence to keep himself in power after the voters had rejected him.”

It gets more brutal:

″[Trump] is a coward. A real man wouldn’t lie to his supporters. He lost his election, and he lost big. I know it, he knows it and deep down I think most Republicans know it.”

You can see the complete ad below:

The ad inspired mixed reactions from Twitter users who felt weird agreeing with the former vice president, who has been accused of being a war criminal for his pro-torture actions during the war in Iraq.

If you had told me in 2000 that I would ever utter the words "I agree with Dick Cheney" I would have punched you in the dick.

Some have said that if Satan criticized Donald Trump, his approval would go up. Now with Dick Cheney, we can really test that theory. https://t.co/TWXL5gqunS

(Sorry, Liz, I have to do this)

please consider the source. This from a man who literally shot his friend in the face with a shotgun - and made his friend apologize. Dick Cheney says there has never been a bigger threat to USA than Donald Trump

Dick Cheney as VP was the chief advocate of the disastrous war in Iraq that killed up to a million people, unconstitutional government surveillance programs, torture, and many other horrific policies.

He should have no standing to accuse anyone of being a threat to our Republic. https://t.co/hTLHi5GBxf

Never in my lifetime have I seen a former vice president repudiate and denounce a former president of the same party.

With Dick Cheney’s announcement, the Republican Party is now engaged in an all-out civil war. https://t.co/tTUMfR5er9

I’d rather hear Dick Cheney admit that Trump is the inevitable reaping for what he himself sowed — incessant lies and gross abuses of power. https://t.co/Va3b3C7E8g

Dick Cheney is a terrible man who is absolutely correct in calling out Trump for being a terrible president and an enduring threat to our country.

Dick Cheney lied us into an illegal war as he pilfered billions through Halliburton. He's not really the best spokesman for standing up against Trump. https://t.co/ePFhGwRUOM
