Watch: Liz Cheney Repeatedly Dodges Fox News Question About Republican Attacks on Her
Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney repeatedly avoiding giving direct answers to questions about recent Republican attacks on her on Wednesday. The House Republican Conference Chair refused several times to be drawn on her future, which is in question in part thanks to Rep. Matt Gaetz.
The Fox & Friends hosts asked her about calls for her resignation and opposition to her leadership four times over the course of seven minutes, but each time Cheney downplayed the issue and deflected to attacking Democrats, China and so-called ‘Cancel Culture’.
“We have a wide range of views within our conference,” Cheney said. “We had a healthy discussion about a whole range of issues.”
“But our conference meeting yesterday, which you have not seen the press report on is the fact that the conference meeting yesterday opened with and focused on what America will look like if Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are running this country and how important it is for us to be unified against that if they are allowed to win and run this country you will see taxpayer funded illegal immigrant healthcare. You will see taxpayer funded abortions.”
Though she was pressed several times throughout her appearance on Fox & Friends, Cheney position remained the same. She discussed differences among Republicans without addressing the public attacks on her and denied she was insufficiently supportive of President Donald Trump, while also deflecting to typical GOP talking points.
