I can almost hear the tears roll off the cheeks of the Never Trumpkins. Why have thou forsaken thee, they wonder.
Cheney adapts. I think he has soured on globalism. I know I have.
But he understands strength, as he showed in an interview with Barbara Starr of CNN.
"One of the most important things [President Trump] can do is exactly the opposite of what his predecessor did. With respect to Iran and nuclear weapons, and don't make the mistakes that the situation he is inheriting from the Obama administration represented. With respect to our status in the world, the capabilities of our forces, the belief on the part of I believe many of our friends and allies that they can no longer trust the United States or count on our guarantees. I think we need to do major progress and reverse the Obama policies and not that's not a place for President Trump to start," Cheney said.
If asked, he would give Trump advice, but Trump has not asked.
"I think he needs to be careful but he'll learn as he goes along. I think he is putting some brains and good people with him. I am a big fan of Mike Pence. I know Mike well from his 12 years in the House and I think he's a great choice as Vice President. He's going to play a major role. I think Mr. Trump is taking very, very seriously the job that he has gotten now. Staffing up the administration," Cheney said.
"I think one of the reasons people get so concerned about the tweets is it is sort of a way around the press. He doesn't have to rely upon, uh, rely upon -- this is the modern era, modern technology. He's at the point where we don't need you guys anymore."
But the press did that to themselves by lying and covering up for One Big Ass Mistake, America.
"Trump the Press" skewers media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. I use my deadliest weapon: their own words. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
