What Liz Cheney got right about Trump and Republicans




House Republicans voted to remove Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney from her leadership position last week, and in the process reaffirmed the “Big Lie” peddled by former President Donald Trump. In this latest episode of The Point, CNN’s Chris Cillizza explains Cheney’s last-ditch warning to the GOP and why it matters.

  1. cnn has never been fair. anywhere in the world. let us face it. cnn hates trump. so no credibility cnn. just shut up. join the level of ocasio , pelosi and biden, useless

  2. We want to hear about John Kerry's stepson and why he's in prison? Where's Michael Avenatti? Andrew Cuomo? Bill Gates (Epstein's best friend) Where's Jeffrey Toobin? CNN you're the most laughed at commentary in the World..

  3. How about what Liz got wrong. Does she really think we are better off now? How about her dad and Iraqi war. ? NOW CAN JOHN KERRY BE OUSTED! BETRAYER OF THE US

  4. Wow more propaganda from CNN on behalf of the communist party better known as Democrat party, why don’t you tell your viewers the real truth of what’s actually going on in this country thanks to them

  5. Comment 1666, just for the hell of it. Liz is generally wrong on issues I care about, but this time she is right. Hopefully she and her opponent for the nomination wipe each other and let the dem win Wyoming.

  6. PSSSSSSST! Here is crazy piece of info you guys don't know but should. Cheney voted with trump more times with Trump than Stefanik. You guys might want to stop kissing her ass and understand that she is evil.

  7. Simply stating that something is not true or that you have not personally seen enough evidence to be convinced yourself of something is not the same as debunking something. The Trump team has had eyewitnesses explain extremely unethical and seemingly unexplainable events that nobody else seems to have any answer for it, we've had experts explain the statistical impossibilities of all of the Swing States swinging back towards Biden the way that they did and nobody that I've heard has ever explained why their analysis is wrong, the Trump team has put out statistics about dead people voting, people voting more than once, people voting in multiple States, Etc and nobody that I've heard has come out and explained what the actual numbers are and why those numbers are not accurate. When there's a whole mountain of evidence and you want people to believe the evidence is not true you cannot just simply say that there is no evidence, you have to actually give an answer to why the evidence is not true. Has anybody taken the time to actually do the work of debunking the accusations that the Trump team has made?

  8. As an outsider looking in, I was wondering if anyone thinks there would be enough Republican Senators who support Liz Cheney, who could get to together and offer to vote with Democrats on issues which would hurt party donations unless it's subservience to Donald Trump is reigned in. I think it would only take 10 Republican Senators to vote against guns gas and other major GOP donator's wishes to destroy their reasons for donating and thus give them all the power to take over the party. I was wondering if this scenario played out would the love of Trump or the love of donations win out within the ranks of those who shouted for her demise. She could effectively become the most powerful person in the Republican Party if Trump annoys enough senators.

  9. Why doesn’t Lizy Cheney refer to the biggest lie in the world, that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction. Over a million people died. Yeah all of the sudden Trump raising questions that there was fraud in the election outweighs the lie about the Iraq invasion. I thank god I’m not a moron like CNN viewers and able to determine this just propaganda. Liz Cheney has become their Joan of arc. 🤢

  10. Noticed that Bill Barr's quote had the date attributed to it written incorrectly. Should've been 2020. Not a big deal now, but if this remains on YouTube for historians to use as reference material, it could create some confusion.

  11. UMH, exactly one person died, a small woman, Trump supporter, that is the one person that was shot and killed. The journalist that videoed it is still in jail, four months later, for trespassing, there are hundreds in jail, still for "trespassing". Meanwhile, Harris and Omar raised millions to bond and release anyone who was thrown in jail for lighting buildings on fire, assaulting and killing cops, stealing, looting and vandalising since last summer. Most were not even arrested, 6 Federal buildings were attempted to be destroyed, hundreds of city and state and federal property trashed and destroyed, no one held accountable, no one in jail for "trespassing"….. how about that story CNN ??

  12. ❤️ All of you that support the Democrats are all going down, the light of truth always wins, you all are going to get a rude awakening. All you Democrats are BIG FOOLS, BLIND, AND HAVE BEEN PROGRAMMED BY THE MAIN STEEAM FAKE NEWS. PLEASE WAKE UP ALL OF YOU….

  13. Kick out all RINOs. If you don't support the clear irregularities in the 2020 election. Namely dead people, illegal aliens, ex-fellons. No court would rule on case. Pennsylvania court tossed it out based on time technicalities. You CNN leftist will continue to fear trump cause MAGA is coming for you
