CNN’s Jake Tapper reacted to Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-WY) comments on Monday criticizing former President Donald Trump, noting that many Republicans remain steadfastly loyal to Trump, including promoting his lies about the 2020 election.
“The Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020 will be, from this day forth, known as THE BIG LIE!” said Trump in a statement released by his PAC (as he remains excommunicated from Twitter). Cheney posted a tweet shortly thereafter making her position clear:
The 2020 presidential election was not stolen. Anyone who claims it was is spreading THE BIG LIE, turning their back on the rule of law, and poisoning our democratic system.
