Neocon Never-Trumper Liz Cheney has issued a statement whining about former President Donald Trump’s commentary on Colin Powell after his death.
Former Secretary of State Powell died on Monday from coronavirus complications at 84, despite being fully vaccinated.
Following his death, Trump issued a statement saying that Powell “made big mistakes on Iraq.”
“Wonderful to see Colin Powell, who made big mistakes on Iraq and famously, so-called weapons of mass destruction, be treated in death so beautifully by the Fake News Media,” Trump wrote in a statement. “Hope that happens to me someday. He was a classic RINO [Republican In Name Only], if even that, always being the first to attack other Republicans.”
“He made plenty of mistakes, but anyway, may he rest in peace!” the former president concluded.
The statement did not sit well with Cheney, who is quick to jump on any reason to attack the former president.
Responding to the statement, Cheney told Cowboy State Daily that it was “pathetic garbage.”
