Former Wyoming GOP Rep. Liz Cheney was booed by graduates at Colorado College during her commencement address on Sunday.
Anti-Trump Cheney, who lost her bid for re-election last year, discussed her opposition to Trump during the address as many graduates turned their chairs away from her.
“After the 2020 election and the attack of January 6th, my fellow Republicans wanted me to lie,” LIZ Cheney told the Colorado College students.
“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,” she added.
“I had to choose between lying and losing my position in House leadership,” she said.
As The Daily Mail reported:
“Cheney implored the new college graduates to not compromise when it comes to the truth and blasted one of the election-denying attorneys who worked for Trump after the election for allegedly telling a gathering of Republicans that ‘it is crucially important to make sure that college students don’t vote.'”
However, some Colorado College students booed and turned their chairs away from the stage when Liz Cheney spoke.
One graduate’s message to Cheney was splashed on her cap.
It read: “Why listen to a racist, imperialist, transphobic, war monger?? Your hate is loud.”
Cheney has been in a tail spin ever since losing her election and being replaced by a Trump-backed Republican who defeated her in last year’s primary
As The Daily Fetched reported earlier this year, Cheney left her congressional seat millions of dollars richer than when she began serving six years ago.
The Anti-Trump Republican has become very wealthy, with her net worth exploding from $7 million to $44 million. Cheney’s net worth could have skyrocketed up to 600 percent during her time in Congress.
Cheney’s 2020 Personal Financial Disclosure form shows she declared a net worth between $10,422,023 and $44,140,000, stemming from assets valued between $10,432,024 and $44,155,000.
