Fox News host accuses Cheney of fueling media narrative of GOP ‘civil war’

U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) has faced mounting criticism from her own party in recent weeks for her frequent attacks on former President Donald Trump and other GOP leaders.

According to Fox News Channel host Joe Concha, Cheney is actually helping the mainstream media in its effort to sell the narrative that the Republican Party is engaged in a “hopeless civil war.”

“Embraced by media bear hugs”

Calling Cheney “the media’s ‘it girl,'” Concha claimed that the Wyoming congresswoman’s opposition to her own party’s agenda is one of several developments that play right into the hands of left-leaning reporters.

She is “just like other Republicans embraced by media bear hugs including Mitt Romney, John Bolton, George W. Bush, for being rogue Republicans,” he asserted, claiming that the congresswoman “seems to be relishing in” that role.

Concha’s remarks came on the heels of an op-ed Cheney wrote for The Washington Post this week.

The Wyoming lawmaker was one of a handful of Republicans who blamed Trump for inciting a riot on Capitol Hill in January. After voting in favor of impeaching the former president, she has maintained her position and subsequently insisted that her party should completely separate itself from Trump going forward.

Of course, a wide majority of the party disagrees with her stance, and she is on the verge of being ousted from her leadership position as chair of the House GOP conference.

“Devoted to the American miracle”

Despite, or perhaps because of, the blowback, Cheney turned to the Post to defend herself, which in itself struck Concha as a curious choice, considering much of the Republican Party is wary of the left-leaning newspaper.

Nevertheless, she used the op-ed to once again insist that her party should distance itself from Trump’s influence.

“We Republicans need to stand for genuinely conservative principles, and steer away from the dangerous and anti-democratic Trump cult of personality,” Cheney wrote. “In our hearts, we are devoted to the American miracle. We believe in the rule of law, in limited government, in a strong national defense, and in prosperity and opportunity brought by low taxes and fiscally conservative policies.”

For their part, House Republican leaders are said to be looking to replace Cheney as conference chair, and a vote next week will likely provide the opportunity to do so. Trump has weighed in on the situation in the form of an endorsement for Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), who has become a leading contender to replace Cheney.

“We want leaders who believe in the Make America Great Again movement, and prioritize the values of America First,” he wrote. “Elise Stefanik is a far superior choice, and she has my COMPLETE and TOTAL Endorsement for GOP Conference Chair.”

  2. Liberals are ignorant people, they see their world through academia indoctrination, they are weak people with no moral fiber.

    1. Liberalism needs to be seen as an ADDICTION… It can ONLY end in insanity, or death. And, it will kill you as well, kill this country, kill this society. Kill civilization.

    2. You should include Cheney among those ignorant people! The Republicans need to distance themselves from Cheney and the other TRAITORS who have disgraced the party and all of them should be thrown out of the Republican party, since they are Die-Hard TRAITORS and are threats to the survival of the Republican party! None of them can be trusted at all!

      1. Totally agree, RINO’s are part of the big government establishment that are do nothing hypocrites and BAD for America and the American people.
        Leadership and Love for our country is what we Americans want and need, Trump provides that……he’s a fighter!

      2. Cheney & Bush = ” 9/11 ” !!! I am afraid that there are far to many that support the status quo of the current 2 party system . The recent history shows that both of these parties are very much alike and their primary allegiance is to their own power and tenure and not so much to the citizens or our Nation …75+ million voters can surely find people that will support the Constitution and “our way of life ” without pandering to the members and their actions relating to the current process.>.

  4. I can’t stand Liz Cheney. Wish she would get kicked out of office. She is nothing but a pot stirrer and a trouble maker.

  5. As usual the republican party is dragging their feet. Get rid of her. We need to think Trump.policy.not personality. Make and keep America first.

  6. I’m starting to hate Republicans as much as I do Democrats. I’m glad I’m old so I don’t have to see how all this craziness ends. I feel sorry for my son and grandsons though, and all the young and middle-aged people as well. Goodbye America, it was great while it lasted!!!

  7. Liz Cheney expected herself to be heir to Republican leadership. But the Bush-Cheney “moderate” Republicans have not fought back against aggressive Democrats. Appeasement will not work against the hyper-aggressive Democrats of today. Liz Cheney walks a path to doom for America. MAGA is the only chance to avoid a Communist takeover of America. Strengthen voter ID laws, and make vote counting secure.
