Ok Donald, I think this is good news, but for goodness sakes under no condition should you go hunting with him!
I say all of that half joking, but half serious, because I don’t trust Dick “Deep State” Cheney as far as I can throw him!
And I couldn’t throw him very far, if you catch my drift.
So no, I’m not naive, but perhaps this is a case of keep your friends close and your enemies closer.
And if Cheney is willing to help President Trump’s re-election campaign raise some funds, then why not, right?
And yes, it's not lost on me that it was the Washington "Deep State" Post that first broke the story:
Former vice president Richard B. Cheney and his daughter, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), are to appear at a lunch fundraiser Monday in support of President Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee, according to an invitation to the event.
The luncheon fundraiser in Jackson, Wyo., will feature White House advisers Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, along with acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney as “special guests,” according to the invitation, which was obtained by The Washington Post.
The invitation does not list the official titles of Mulvaney and the president’s daughter and son-in-law, and it clarifies that “their participation in the event is not a solicitation of funds.” A federal law prohibits administration officials from campaigning in their official capacities.
The former vice president has been critical of the Trump administration’s foreign policy moves. At a private gathering this year, Richard Cheney pressed Vice President Pence on a number of the administration’s foreign policy decisions, particularly the Trump administration’s isolationist stances.
Cheney has criticized the Trump administration’s hard line toward U.S. allies in NATO, a posture that he said “feeds this notion on the part of our allies overseas, especially in NATO, that we’re not long for that continued relationship,” The Post reported.
Nonetheless, Cheney and his daughter, the current chair of the House Republican Conference, are to appear at the fundraiser Monday for Trump Victory, a joint committee that raises money for Trump’s 2020 campaign and the RNC.
The invitation does not specify ticket prices. Trump Victory is a vehicle for high-dollar fundraisers in support of the campaign and the party, and often charges five- and six-figure amounts for attendance at its events.
Officials for the Trump campaign and the RNC did not respond to questions Saturday about ticket prices.
Also expected to attend the fundraiser are the prominent Republican donor and billionaire founder of TD Ameritrade Joe Ricketts and his wife, Marlene, and GOP donor and owner of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort Jay Kemmerer and his wife, Karen.
Also in attendance are reported to be Jared and Ivanka, and yes, I know that many of you (many of "us") do not trust Jared Kushner.
I get it.
But I'm just here to report the facts, Jack!
So....what do you think?
Are you happy to take Cheney's help?
