Liz Cheney Rips Media for Focusing on Phony “Racist” Controversy


In an interview with CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) ripped the news media for putting such exclusive focus on Trump’s tweets against the progressive Squad, the “send her back” chants at the rally, and the rest of this phony racism business. Cheney said that with the election coming up, the media was being irresponsible in their coverage of trivial controversies at the expense of serious policy discussions.

“I think the news media wants to make it about race,” Cheney told host Margaret Brennan. “You just did it. It’s not about race, gender, religion. These members of the House of Representatives, more, it’s not just these four, it’s some candidates running for president on the Democratic side fundamentally believe in policies that are dangerous for this nation. As Republicans we will fight against those even if the mainstream media accuses us of racism when we do this.”

Brennan, of course, didn’t want to hear that.

“But what you’re talking about there are policy differences,” Brennan said. “That’s not what the president was tweeting about this morning and when he said, ‘I don’t believe the four congresswomen are capable of loving our country,’ I know you disagree with their policies and politics, you just made that clear, but there have been death threats against Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.”

And, uh, there haven’t been any towards Donald Trump? Name a prominent politician who hasn’t gotten any death threats, Margaret.

“There are fundamentally, this is a moment where we have to be very clear and it’s really important for us to focus on,” said Cheney. “And I know you guys don’t want to, you don’t want to focus on the fact that there are substantive differences–”

“But that’s not what the president is talking about,” Brennan interjected.

“That is not true,” Cheney replied. “The president every single day talks about policy. Every single day this president talks about the tremendous economic growth that we have seen since he’s been in office, the tremendous job growth, the tremendous decline of unemployment.

“The president has absolutely said that they should not have chanted ‘send her back,’” Cheney insisted. “Our concern and our opposition to what these women are saying—and many other members of the Democratic Party in the House of Representatives—has to do with the fact that they’re advocating policies that will destroy this nation and we will fight against it. And I think the news media, you included, ought to cover the substance and I think it is outrageous for you to say that the president doesn’t talk about substance.”

Bah, the media has been calling Trump a racist from the moment he questioned Obama’s birth certificate, and they have simply adopted it as an article of faith at this point. But in a cultural environment where Chris Pratt is a racist for wearing a Gadsden flag on his t-shirt and the Betsy Ross flag is racist and the Pledge of Allegiance is racist, who really cares anymore?

Elitist liberals like Margaret Brennan, and that’s about it.

  1. There is racism in the United States and it’s against white Americans. The Democrats and biased corrupt lying fake news media have declared war on white American. The Dems scream racism every time they are exposed for their treasonous anti-American socialist actions and behavior. It has been decades since the Dems have done anything for the United States and the American people. The only thing that concerns them is their own re-elections, lobbyists, their own special interests and their own power. Whatever they have to do to betray the US and the American people and/or to the detriment of the US and the American people that’s exactly what they do. They do little else. We the people have to demand term limits and we have to have them now. All politicians in office should not be permitted any longer to give themselves a raise; they must be responsible for and pay for their own medical insurance as we the American workers are doing; the Cadillac pension plans that they now receive need to end immediately and they need to start paying into Social Security. If they want additional pension benefits then they need to start contributing into their own 401(k). The loophole that was established during President Johnson’s tenure that the Social Security fund could be raided needs to end immediately. The party is over for the politicians who are all living comfortably and retiring comfortably as millionaires all on the backs of the American taxpayers while the taxpayers are struggling simply to survive because of the abysmal failed policies of the Democrats and the Republicans

  2. The Economy is UP, Unemployment is DOWN, the Welfare Rolls are DOWN they only thing that the Democrats/Leftists/Liberals/Socialists have is Racism. Well, that and the Muller investigation which is fading fast. No matter what it is they put the Racist spin on it if someone calls one of the Group stupid that doesn’t mean it is a racist comment it just means that a member of the group is considered to be stupid. The truth of that statement might be called into question and at some point in time could be proven wrong but it is not racist.
    Speaking of the Muller report I heard one member of the House make the claim that President Trump and Putin made some kind of a deal so that Donald Trump would get elected. Now form what I read Donald Trump is a very good businessman and is known for his deal-making but I do not think that the President is that good at negotiations or that Putin is so stupid to be able to get Russia to help get Trump elected in return for additional sanctions on Russia. President Trump has been harder on Russia than just about any president so why would Putin help he get elected and get nothing in return

    • do not try to confuse the democrats with facts, they have got the allinski reply down pat and can not comprehend anything else.

  3. Democrats don’t care about death threats unless they are against this pig Omar. As a Minnesotan the only reason this pig was elected is our ex governor Mark Dayton brought all these Somalis here. He also said if Minnesotans didn’t like it they could leave, may he burn in HELL!! The Twin Cities has turned into a sh**hole, so glad I moved my family out of there would never go back.

  4. Way to go LiZ…keep speaking the truth and this American is behind you 100%.

    She’s been on fire lately and on point!

      • I wonder if Margaret Brennan would take aside TRIP to Baltimore to see EXACTLY what goes on in BELLOWING jacka55 Cummings district might have said about “RACISM” or what SCHMUCK would wear a Green Uniform on the Border for a week and then LIE about the :made Up” border Crisis…GO LIZ ….

  5. Did the media call Hillary a racist in 2008 when she and her campaign questioned Obama’s birthplace?
    Trump re-raised that question in 2011, and he is the one being caused a racist.
    Qualification for President (place of birth) has nothing to do with race. They attacked John McCain (Panama, father on military duty) the same election. Were they racist when they questioned McCain???
    And Obama has not yet produced his birth certificate.
