Liz Cheney slams Fox News star for calling Mike Johnson ‘a hero’

The Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Mike Johnson (R-LA) was criticized by former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) for his appearance yesterday outside the Manhattan courtroom when he was a former president Donald Trump is facing 34 felony counts for allegedly falsifying business documents to cover up payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 presidential election. Daniels claims she had a sexual encounter with Trump, which ultimately led to the payments.

Cheney wrote: “I have to admit, I’m surprised that Speaker Johnson wants to be part of the ‘I cheated on my wife with a *** star’ club. I guess he’s not that concerned about teaching morality to our young people after all.”

Marc Thiessena Fox News star and former White House Director of Speechwriting for President George W Bush, Johnson defended and Cheney responded: “He simply risked his job and political career to pass aid to Ukraine and literally save a country. You weren’t there to fight for Ukraine because you blew up your political career and now you’re harassing him from the sidelines.”

(Note: As a result of her service as vice chair of the House Select Committee in the January 6 attack on the Capitol, Cheney’s membership in the Republican Party of Wyoming was revoked, she was censured by the RNC, and she lost the Republican primary in Wyoming in 2022. to Trump-backed Harriet Hageman in a landslide.)

Thiessen added: “Mike Johnson is a hero because of what he did in Ukraine, not to mention Israel, Taiwan and FISA. He put his job on the line… So maybe he should resign.”

Liz Cheney responded to Thiessen: “You have become the face of moral compromise, Marc. I will never do what you and so many elected R’s have done: abandon all our principles and try to put an unstable, depraved and extremely dangerous man back in power. And by the way, you know that Johnson blocked aid to Ukraine for months. His inexcusable delay gave Putin time to redeploy his forces and launch a new offensive. That’s not heroic.”
