Former Vice President Dick Cheney has appeared in a new campaign ad for his daughter Liz, but he spends almost the whole time bashing Trump.
The ad is not effective and comes off as the last gasp of the old guard of the GOP, desperately trying to retake contol of a party that has already moved on without them.
Cheney and other never-Trumpers want to go back to the days when they ran the show, but that ship sailed away long ago.
CNBC describes the ad this way:
Former Vice President Dick Cheney rips ‘coward’ Trump in election ad for daughter Liz
Former Vice President Dick Cheney assailed ex-President Donald Trump as a “coward” and a prime threat to the United States in a new campaign ad for his daughter, Rep. Liz Cheney, days before her Republican primary election in Wyoming.
“In our nation’s 246-year history, there has never been an individual who has posed a greater threat to our republic than Donald Trump,” the elder Cheney said in a straight-to-camera ad, which was shared online Thursday afternoon.
“He tried to steal the last election using lies and violence to keep himself in power after the voters had rejected him,” said Cheney, 81, who served for eight years as vice president in the George W. Bush administration.
“He is a coward. A real man wouldn’t lie to his supporters,” Cheney said. “He lost his election and he lost big. I know it, he knows it, and deep down, I think most Republicans know it.”
