Liz Cheney Lands New Job After Humiliating Primary Defeat


Former Rep. Liz Cheney landed a new job after getting demolished by Trump-endorsed Harriet Hagemen in the GOP primary.

After getting the boot from Congress, Cheney has settled for a professor position at The Center for Politics at the University of Virginia.

You’d think Cheney would have landed a job at a university in Wyoming.

We’re thrilled to share @RepLizCheney will be joining us as a Professor Practice,” Center for Politics at UVA tweeted.

“There are many threats facing our system of government and I hope my work with the Center for Politics and the broader community at the University of Virginia will contribute to finding lasting solutions that not only preserve but strengthen our democracy,” Cheney said.

NBC News reported:

Her appointment, which is effective immediately, will run through this year’s fall semester, with an option to renew for one or more years, the Center for Politics said.

After three terms in office, Cheney left Congress in January after she lost her November primary to Harriet Hageman, a challenger backed by former President Donald Trump. During her tenure, she was the chairwoman of the House Republican Conference, a position from which she was ousted after she rebuked Trump, and the vice chair of the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack.

She had said she was mulling a possible presidential run in 2024 and has repeatedly said she plans to do whatever it takes to defeat Trump to ensure he doesn’t serve a second term in the White House.

Liz Cheney will never sniff the White House, especially if she runs on a Republican ticket.

She would be better suited changing parties and running as a Democrat.

Breitbart pointed out that Cheney’s new job is in a typically far-left institution:

Cheney’s decision to slip into academia, an often far-left institution, comes as Cheney’s career was riddled with votes and reported plots against her own party. Democrats welcomed Cheney’s treachery and later appointed her to the January 6 committee.

In the spring of 2021, Cheney was fired as the GOP House conference chair by the Republican House conference via a vote of no confidence. She was replaced by Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), an ardent supporter of Trump and America first policies.

Cheney did not want to lose her powerful position in Republican House leadership. To save her title, Cheney reportedly met “off-the-record” with Fox News board member Paul Ryan to shore up rumors of her ouster. Breitbart News reported that Bill Kristol, editor-at-large of the Bulwark, “recognized the meeting as perhaps Cheney’s last gasp to remain in power.”

Students taught by Liz Cheney are better off doing the exact opposite of what she teaches about politics.
