Liz & The Party of Lincoln

August 18, 2022

Rep. Elizabeth Cheney (R, WY) lost her primary election to the Big Lie, as the Party of Lincoln has clearly become the Party of Trump. Unlike the last president, she didn’t claim the election was stolen just because she lost, and conceded to her election-denying opponent. Ms. Cheney’s concession speech (18 min) is worth hearing in full.
