Former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) is under the impression that people still care what she has to say.
Cheney went off after Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) was chosen as the new GOP Speaker of the House nominee.
Cheney posted on X, calling Jordan out for being in Trump's camp, then her timeline just blew up.
Who Are You?
Cheney has pretty much been out of the picture since getting booted from office.
She had her 15 minutes after leaving office, as the leftist media had her on for interviews, but then they realized nobody really cared what she had to say.
She ruined her career by going against then-Minority Leader McCarthy (R-CA) and joining the January 6 Committee via Pelosi's invitation.
Jordan, a well-known Trump ally, won the second election held by the GOP caucus for Speaker.
Not long after he was made the nominee, Cheney posted her objections to him on X…
She stated, "Jim Jordan was involved in Trump's conspiracy to steal the election and seize power; he urged that Pence refuse to count lawful electoral votes. If Rs nominate Jordan to be Speaker, they will be abandoning the Constitution. They'll lose the House majority and they'll deserve to."
The reactions to her comments were pretty brutal, with Trump memes and pictures starting to flood her timeline.
This had to hit home pretty hard for Cheney…
Why would anyone take political advice from a RINO who lost by 40+ points?

Cheney may not have much of an impact on the Speaker race, but the point she made could present a problem for Jim Jordan moving forward.
There is a large enough contingent in the House that still does not like Donald Trump, so they could hold out because of Jordan's relationship with Trump.
I was dead wrong in thinking the party would get behind either Rep. Scalise (R-LA) or Jordan, so I don't want to go out on a limb in how this week will go on that front.
I do know, however, that McCarthy has openly vowed that he will do everything in his power to get Jordan elected, but at last count, there were about four dozen House members in the GOP that were adamant they would not support Jordan as Speaker.
Hopefully, Jordan made headway against them over the weekend.
