‘We’re not sworn enemies’: GOP Rep. Cheney gives Biden friendly fist bump before speech

Although she has been rejected by many members of her own party, U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) appears to be finding new friends on the other side of the aisle.

In a revealing moment ahead of President Joe Biden’s recent address of a joint congressional session, Cheney gave the president a fist bump, Politico reported.

“Never been a greater betrayal”

Over the course of the past few months, Cheney has attracted praise from progressives — along with the lasting enmity of former President Donald Trump and his supporters — after leading an effort to impeach Trump for his supposed role in inciting a riot on Capitol Hill in January.

At the time, she said that there had “never been a greater betrayal” by a commander in chief, the Washington Examinernoted .

Following Wednesday’s speech by Biden and her friendly interaction, however, she struck a much different tone, saying: “We’re not sworn enemies. We’re Americans.”

For his part, Biden is still focused on the Jan. 6 riot, calling it the “worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War” during his address this week.

Over the course of his roughly hour-long speech, the president went on to lay out an agenda that Cheney later referred to as “dangerous,” though clearly not off-putting enough to undermine her sense of collegiality.

“Warmongering fool”

“I will fight back against these dangerous plans and always stand up for the interests of our state and for the constitutional values that we hold dear,” the Wyoming Republican later said of the president’s agenda.

On the topic of constitutional values, Cheney’s constituents might be interested in hearing her opinion on Biden’s declaration that constitutional amendments are not absolute as part of his ongoing effort to pass new gun control measures. After all, firearms are popular in Wyoming.

In addition to greeting Biden, Cheney was also seen chatting with Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), another establishment Republican who has earned Trump’s ire.

Despite the backlash against her from within the GOP, Cheney has vowed to hold onto her congressional seat, declaring that she is “absolutely dedicated and committed to winning [her] primary race and earning the votes of the people of Wyoming, both in the primary and in the general election.”

Trump seems committed to preventing that outcome, however, most recently calling her a “warmongering fool” in a public statement furthering his effort to encourage a robust primary challenge against her in next year’s midterm election.

  1. ROFLMAO……whatever gave you the idea Cheney is a top republican??? Even her state hates her.

    1. Liz Cheney is a traitor to her Party. She is a Globalist, deep state spy or sleeper for the Democratic Party. Her Father capitalized on the Iraq War that he and Bush created. Thy have betrayed the people of the United States. All traitors.
      Investigate all and you will no the truth.

      1. She is disgusting and needs to either change parties or better yet just GO! In my opinion, anyone who pretends to not see what is going on in American politics today MUST be either stupid and incompetent or someone who has benefited from the wealth stolen by deceipt or a member of a family that has done so for generations. I also think at some point these people, including Bush, will be seen for who they really are.

    2. EXPLAIN US? WHAT IS YOUR”ROFLAMA0………. seems to me,you are idiot, this women Chaney is deep state jerk, together with Bush, they are taitors of all of us, Iraq war and destruction till today is master job of those people called americans

  3. Cheney is a turncoat JOKE and should have her sorry arse kicked out of the Republican Party!! There are also many more who need the frozen boot to!!! One is that McConnell!! Him and that traitor joke Paul Ryan did MORE to hurt the Republican Party than any of the Communist Democrats, when Ryan was leader of the House! That pair of clowns stopped President Trump from getting his America First agenda enacted!!! There are also a bunch of traitor Republicans who are supporting UNCONSTITUTIONAL RED FLAG LAWS!!! They are just damn DISGUSTING! GET THEM OUT OF CONGRESS!!!!!!!!!

  4. I wish they would stop saying that Trump supporters broke into the capitol. Timeline states that Trump was giving a speech a mile away when the capitol riot started. Antifa website told members and BLM to wear Trump hats and flags, and BE THERE. They put the blame on Trump people, and it worked.
    The woman killed by police there was not a Trump supporter because her friends said she belonged to no group. She was independent.

    1. Same old tactic repeat a lie long enough and it becomes accepted fact. Mission statement for the democrat party and the loony left.

  5. Can’t believe I voted for Bush/Cheney TWICE! Never would have if I knew then what I now know. We never need another Bush or Cheney in any role in government. The Rinos have got to be voted out permanently.

  6. Yes, we all know what your “dedicated” to and that’s holding on to your power. You’ve made some voluntary and stupid choices, but seem to think we’ll forget them if you just act loyal and dedicated. The problem is, your dedication isn’t to the President or the Party, so just who are you fighting for? We fell for the dedication of the likes of Bush, Romney and McCain through the years, but we’re smarter than we were back then. We watch, listen and investigate and you’re losing. You don’t get to stab us in the back and then try to tell us what a good person you are for Wyoming. We can do without people like you.

  7. Cheney is another worthless neocon phony. They campaign as conservatives and then once in office are just as sleazy as any DemoRAT. These neocons are all alike. They’re globalists who want wide open borders, high taxes and outright communism. Just because they call themselves Republicans doesn’t mean they’re conservative or right wing in the least. Just remember, if you waste your vote on a neocon, it’s the same thing as wasting it on a DemoRAT.
