Cheney is a daughter of Bush’s vice president, Dick Cheney, and is one of the most outspoken critics of Trump. In return, Trump has called her a “warmongering fool” and a “horrible human being.”
As Breitbart News reported, Cheney voted to impeach Trump for incitement of insurrection following the January 6 Capitol riot, ignoring the fact the former president did not call for violence or lawlessness. Rather, he continually called for peace as the chaos continued to unfold.
