Despite how much deep shit Donald Trump is personally in these days, it seems he unsurprisingly still has yet to learn an ounce of humility or compassion… Or just plain ole how to keep his damn mouth shut.
Wyoming GOP House Rep. Liz Cheney — a prominent member of the January 6th House Select Committee in her position as vice chair of the panel and staunch Never Trump Republican — has lost her primary election this evening and just moments ago conceded the race to her challenger, Harriet Hageman.
In her concession speech, Cheney noted that she has already called Hageman to congratulate her on her victory in the election but made it clear that her ongoing fight against former President Donald Trump is far from over.
“This primary election is over, but now the real work begins,” Cheney said in her speech tonight.

To be entirely frank, her loss was an expected one, as she was one of very few Republicans in Congress to have the nerve and bravery to go against the grain and fight for what is right and just in this nation, even if it meant crossing the GOP’s Dear Leader, Donald Trump.
Despite the fact that we often don’t agree with many of her policies and principles, we can fully admit that she’s been a pillar of strength, grace, and a bit of spitfire as she dedicated her life to bringing down the man who destroyed this nation from the inside out, even knowing that it would likely cost her political career in the end.
In her closing ad, Cheney said:
Like many candidates across this country, my opponents in Wyoming have said that the 2020 election was rigged and stolen. No one who understands our nation’s laws, no one with an honest, honorable, genuine commitment to our Constitution would say that. It is a cancer that threatens our great Republic. If we do not condemn these lies, if we do not hold those responsible to account, we will be excusing this conduct and it will become a feature of all elections. America will never be the same.”
We respect Cheney’s fight and truly hope that she continues.
But meanwhile, Donald Trump is out here being every bit of the petulant toddler we’ve come to know and hate.
The former president didn’t waste a moment in taking to his pathetically floundering Truth Social platform to rub the loss in Cheney’s face:
Congratulations to Harriet Hageman on her great and very decisive WIN in Wyoming. This is a wonderful result for America, and a complete rebuke of the Unselect Committee of political Hacks and Thugs. Liz Cheney should be ashamed of herself, the way she acted, and her spiteful, sanctimonious words and actions towards others. Now she can finally disappear into the depths of political oblivion where, I am sure, she will be much happier than she is right now. Thank you WYOMING!”
She may have lost her election, but at least she’s not headed for prison, Donnie boy.
