Former President Donald Trump was not the only one celebrating the ouster of his main congressional nemesis, Rep. Liz Cheney, from Congress.
Don Trump Jr. took the opportunity to rub a little salt in the wound.
Don. Jr posted a video on Twitter late Tuesday night bidding a not-so-fond farewell to Cheney, who was slaughtered in Wyoming’s Republican primary earlier Tuesday by lawyer Harriet Hageman. Hageman, who was endorsed by former President Trump, took 66 percent of the vote.
Hageman appears to be a lock in the general election, since Republicans hold a 5-to-1 advantage over Democrats among registered voters.
Don Jr.’s video featured clips of his father’s famous campaign rally dance as the chorus from the Steam song “Kiss Him Goodbye” played in the background.
As the video ends the words “bye bye Liz Cheney!” appear, as Trump Sr.’s voiceover adds “Bye-bye.”
In his tweet, Trump Jr. added, “Bye bye @Liz_Cheney. On the bright side at least you won’t have to pretend to be from Wyoming anymore.”
Cheney was one of 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump after the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Democratic House Speaker then selected her to serve as vice chairwoman of the special House committee investigating the riot. During the course of the hearings,
Cast as a RINO by Trump’s faithful, Cheney repeatedly vowed she would “do whatever it takes to ensure Donald Trump is never again anywhere near the Oval Office — and I mean it.”
Cheney surely is eating some crow now after a big boast that Wyoming voters would be willing to keep her.

In a May 2021 interview, she told NBC News of her pro-Trump critics, “If they think that they’re gonna come into Wyoming and make the argument that the people of Wyoming should vote for someone who is loyal to Donald Trump over someone who is loyal to the Constitution, I welcome that debate.”
On Wednesday, the media kept pumping up Cheney’s hint that she would run for president in 2024 – although it’s difficult to see who her constituency is.
As a NeverTrumper, Cheney sought fundraising and balloting help from Democrats, and got a favorable response. Yet liberals will never support her beyond trying to keep her in Congress to torment Trump.
Meanwhile, she is almost nonexistent in polling among potential GOP presidential candidates. As The Free Press reported on Tuesday, a Morning Consult poll last week found that 2 percent of GOP voters support Cheeney – which is only 54 percentage points behind Trump, who remains far and away the most popular figure in the party.
