Liz Cheney slapped GOP Rep. Jim Jordan’s hand and said get away from me, you did this when he tried to escort her during the Capitol riot.
- Republican Rep. Liz Cheney said, according to a new book, that she smacked fellow GOP Rep. Jim Jordan’s hand away during the January 6 Capitol riot.
- “Get away from me. You f***ing did this,” Cheney said she told Jordan when he offered her help during the chaos in the House chamber that day.
- Cheney was voted out as No. 3 ranking Republican in the House in May for breaking with Trump and voting with Democrats to impeach him.
- Jordan, on the other hand, has supported Trump’s claims the 2020 election was illegitimate due to a slew of voter fraud.
Liz Cheney said she smacked away fellow Republican Representative Jim Jordan’s hand during the January 6 Capitol riot when he tried to offer her help, excerpts from a new book detail.
The book by two Washington Post reporters reveals a phone call between the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Cheney where Mark Milley asked her how she was doing after the attack on the Capitol by Trump supporters.
“That f***ing guy Jim Jordan. That son of a b***h,” the excerpts from CNN claim she said, according to the book I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump’s Catastrophic Final Year.
Just how true is this story, and does this story even make sense?
- First off, any book authored by The Washington Post reporters with citations from CNN is a red flag of truth and highly problematic. These people have been caught in so many lies and promoting propaganda in the past – it makes the credibility of the story highly questionable.
- Liz Cheney was the leader of the GOP party. Dumping “F” bombs and swearing toward her colleagues is abusive for a person in this position. How ironic for a person who has TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) and despises Trump – where she would often cite the horrors, in her opinion, of Trump’s language. Is this the pot calling the kettle black?
- January 6th was supposed to be an “insurrection.” It was supposedly the worst event since the Civil War. If you were so worried about your personal safety, would you not accept help from anyone? Or did Liz Cheney think Jim Jordan was in on it and was physically afraid of Jim Jordan?
- Was Jim Jordan in on it? What evidence does Liz Cheney have? Just because of an opinion from Jim Jordan, was she really that afraid of him? Really? No, if she really said what she said, she said out of the pure drama. Which makes Liz Cheney a highly dishonest person – someone not to be taken with any credibility.
Even NPR notes:
“Here, as in their first book (and in Woodward’s many books), the sourcing includes on-the-record statements and a mix of other forms of attribution. We are told this is done to enable sources to be forthcoming, and it surely makes it possible for reporters to hear a good deal more than they would otherwise. And in the 140 interviews the authors say they conducted, we do hear a great deal more than heretofore.
Thus we hear often that a particular player “told confidants” certain information, with the confidants presumably becoming conduits to the journalists. There are other instances when we are told a powerful person close to Trump had certain thoughts or reactions that perhaps only that person would know about. But we are largely left to trust the authors to be reporting what has been shared with them, whatever the agreements regarding attribution.
This gives the Rucker-Leonnig storytelling a compelling sense of almost novelistic omniscience, as though the authors had been present and taking notes in a host of conversations they never heard.”
As they say, it’s a free country, you believe any nonsense you want, but my “BS” detector says this story is false – it makes little sense. But perhaps it makes good propaganda and provides good clickbait to promote a book to make some money.
