(TStarnes) – Disgraced Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), who lost her GOP primary, said she’s making it her life mission to keep Donald Trump from becoming president again.
Cheney, the vice-chair of the Jan. 6 committee, was soundly defeated Tuesday night by Trump-backed Harriet Hageman by 37 points, which is reportedly the fourth worst incumbent loss since 1968.
“Today” host Savannah Guthrie asked Cheney Wednesday morning if she is thinking about running for president in 2024.
“I will be doing whatever it takes to keep Donald Trump out of the Oval Office,” the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney said.

Cheney, who was lambasted online for her tone-deaf remarks, then said she is “thinking about” running against Trump.
The Republican kingmaker posted three separate posts on Truth Social celebrating Cheney’s loss.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene slammed Cheney for her comments.
“[Cheney] has a mental illness called Trump Derangement Syndrome,” Greene tweeted.
“Just like the rest of the globalists who are obsessed with power and money and don’t give a damn about America or the good hard working American people,” she added. “Our party is no longer her party, she’s the Uniparty.”
The actual reason Liz Cheney hates Donald Trump is because she was raised with delusions of grandeur that she would one day be president and watched as Trump completely turned the GOP base away from her family's neocon dynasty and to a future of putting America First.

Abraham Lincoln has a better shot at becoming president in 2024 than Liz Cheney.
