Liz Cheney booed, graduates turn their backs during commencement speech at liberal Colorado College

It appears RINO Liz Cheney can’t go anywhere without being reminded of how disliked she is.

During her commencement address at her alma mater, the liberal Colorado College, graduates booed at the former Wyoming U.S. Representative and turned their chairs around, giving Cheney a view of their defiant backs as she again blasted her “fellow Republicans” and former President Donald Trump.

Despite the Oscar-worthy performance she delivered during her time on the sham Jan. 6 House Select Committee, Cheney opined on the virtues of telling the truth.

“After the 2020 election and the attack of January 6th, my fellow Republicans wanted me to lie,” she told the graduating class. “They wanted me to say that the 2020 election was stolen, that the attack of January 6th wasn’t a big deal, and that Donald Trump wasn’t dangerous.”

“I had to choose between lying and losing my position in House leadership,” she continued. “As I spoke to my colleagues on my last morning as chair of the Republican Conference in May of 2021, I told them that if they wanted a leader who would lie, they should choose someone else.”

She recalled her “final act as chair” — an opening prayer.

“As the House Republicans bowed our heads in the auditorium beneath the Capitol, I prayed that we would know a love and a reverence for freedom,” she said. “I prayed that we would remember that democratic systems could fray and suddenly unravel and that when they do, they are gone forever.”

Cheney received plenty of applause, but some of the students delivered a message of their own.

Clearly, the divisive speaker knew not everyone at the college was happy to see her.

She began her address with, “It’s an honor to be here with most of you to celebrate this tremendous accomplishment.”

It was easy to see which students weren’t recipients of Cheney’s “honor.” One student’s cap was emblazoned with the words, “Why listen to a racist, imperialist, transphobic, war monger?? Your hate is loud.”

Cheney went on to blast “election denier” Cleta Mitchell, who worked for Trump following the contested 2020 election.

At a recent Republican National Committee retreat, Mitchell discussed the impact of polling places on college campuses, The Washington Post reported.

“Cleta Mitchell, an election denier and adviser to former President Trump, told a gathering of Republicans recently that it is crucially important to make sure that college students don’t vote,” Cheney said. “Those who are trying to unravel the foundations of our republic, who are threatening the rule of law and the sanctity of our elections, know they can’t succeed if you vote.”

On Twitter, many cheered on the protesting students and noted that Cheney is “homeless.”

“I predicted she would end up without support of either party…..” one user wrote, “but it was a no-brainer prediction.”
