Liz Cheney Urges Democrats to 'Keep Talking' so Americans Know How 'Radical' They Are

January 3, 2019

Rep. Liz Cheney (R., Wyo.) on Thursday urged Democrats in Congress and the media to "keep talking," saying their rhetoric will expose how "radical" and "out of touch" they are.

Cheney, the chairwoman of the House Republican Conference, appeared on Fox News' "Special Report," where she was asked to respond to multiple clips of Democrats using violent or controversial rhetoric in the last 24 to 48 hours.

"She'll cut your head off and you won't even know you are bleeding. That's all you need to know about her," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D., Calif.) daughter said of her mother on CNN.

"Much like [Adolf] Hitler took over the Nazi party, [President Donald] Trump has taken over the Republican Party," Rep. Hank Johnson (D., Ga.) said at an NAACP event in Atlanta.

"My New Year's resolution is to make sure that the Republican Party dies," actress Jane Curtin said on television.

Ed Henry, who was filling in for regular host Bret Baier, added that Pelosi told NBC that Democrats will not give any funding for a wall on the southern border, before asking Cheney what she thought of the rhetoric.

"I think they ought to keep talking, because I think the more the American people see how radical and how out of touch the Democrats are, the more they are going to regret the fact that the Democrats are now in control of the House of Representatives," Cheney said. "We face huge challenges in this country, huge challenges from a national security perspective, and we've got this economy that's booming because President Trump put policies in place, like the tax cuts, working with us in the Republican side of the House, like regulatory reform, rolling back the strangling regulations we saw during the Obama era. We got to keep that going."

Cheney then took a shot at the Democrats who were just sworn in to Congress, saying that many of them are "socialists." She added that their rhetoric may actually be good for the country because Americans "will see the choice that they've got to make in 2020, and they want to get back to actually accomplishing things for the nation, not on the far-left fringe of politics."
