U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney won’t repeat the Big Lie.
The Big Lie, in case you missed it, is the fantasy that former President Donald Trump was somehow cheated out of re-election to the White House. In reality, President Biden won 7 million more votes than Trump in a free and fair election, one without interference or fraud.
Stating these facts shouldn’t require any particular political belief. They only require a respect for the truth. But after watching their supporters storm the Capitol in the insurrection of Jan. 6, other Republican officials seem to have decided to live in a land of make-believe, rather than the United States of America.
