Former GOP Rep Liz Cheney got a rude welcome from some of the graduates at Colorado College where she gave the commencement address on Sunday.
Some graduates booed loudly during her speech while others turned their chairs away from Cheney in disgust. Some wrote messages to the ‘warmonger’ on their caps.
One cap said, “Why listen to a racist, imperialist, transphobic, warmonger?? Your hate is loud.”
Cheney spent a lot of time during her speech attacking former President Donald Trump and other leaders of the Republican Party.
“After the 2020 election and the attack of January 6th, my fellow Republicans wanted me to lie.
“They wanted me to say the 2020 election was stolen, the attack of January 6th wasn’t a big deal, and Donald Trump wasn’t dangerous.
“I had to choose between lying and losing my position in House leadership.
“Cleta Mitchell, an election denier and adviser to former President Trump, told a gathering of Republicans recently that it is crucially important to make sure that college students don’t vote.
“Those who are trying to unravel the foundations of our republic, who are threatening the rule of law and the sanctity of our elections, know they can’t succeed if you vote.”
