Outgoing Rep. Liz Cheney is rushing to the defense of Paul Pelosi, of course.
On Tuesday, Cheney said that Republicans mocking the Pelosi attack are “disgraceful.”
The nepotism baby and primary loser made the remarks while speaking at an event in Ohio at the City Club in conversation with Judy Woodruff, Anchor at PBS NewsHour.
Cheney specifically took aim at members of former President Donald Trump’s family, as Donald Trump Jr. had shared a meme of a Halloween costume joking about the situation.

“The fact that while Paul Pelosi was in ICU, had been brutally attacked, had a skull fracture and numerous other injuries, that there were members of my party mocking him, that there were members of President Trump’s family mocking him, that’s not who we are in this country,” Cheney said.
The holier than thou disgraced politician continued, “that is disgraceful. And as Americans, we have to reject it. We have to be willing to say we can have disagreements, we can have debates, we can have intense debates, but violence cannot ever be part of our discourse.”
“I think that the demonization that goes on on both sides, certainly Republicans have through the years demonized Speaker Pelosi, Democrats have demonized Republicans, including my dad. And it all has to stop,” Cheney said.
“As a nation, we all should be keeping the Pelosi family in our prayers. We all should recognize that we cannot go over an abyss of not being able to have the common human decency to stand against that violence, to condemn the violence, to pray for Mr. Pelosi and his family, and to reject those who are acting in a way that frankly is inhumane,” Cheney said later in the event.
Paul Pelosi, 82, was attacked in his home late Friday night — but many are questioning the official story, as details keep changing and the entire premise is bizarre.
