George W. Bush To Headline Fundraiser For NeverTrumper Liz Cheney

Former President George W. Bush will appear at a fundraiser for Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming, who is facing a primary challenge due to her constant opposition and criticism to former President Donald Trump.

A number of news outlets have reported that the fundraiser, headlined by Bush, is scheduled to take place in Dallas, Texas on October 18.

Cheney’s congressional race sets up a battle between two titans – with Bush endorsing Cheney and Trump endorsing Cheney’s primary opponent, Harriet Hageman.

George W. Bush Now Helping Liz Cheney Fundraise, Didn’t Vote For Trump In 2016

Attendees reportedly include former Bush advisors Karl Rove and Karen Hughes, and also former U.S. ambassador to NATO and Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison.

CNBC reported, “’President Bush is impressed by Liz Cheney’s strength and vision, and he’s proud to support her,’ Bush spokesman Freddy Ford told CNBC in an email.”

“This one shouldn’t come as any surprise,’ Ford added, saying Bush ‘has historically helped a few key candidates and friends each cycle.’ But Bush has largely stayed mum on electoral politics since leaving the White House in 2009 with overwhelmingly negative approval ratings,” noted CNBC

Bush said he did not vote for either Trump or Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

In 2020, after the January 6 attack on the Capitol, Bush said that the Republican Party had grown “isolationist, protectionist and, to a certain extent, nativist.”

Cheney was one of ten House Republicans who voted to impeach Trump for allegedly inciting the Capitol riot.

When Trump formally endorsed Cheney’s primary Republican challenger, Harriet Hageman, he called Cheney a “disloyal Republican,” a “RINO” and “the Democrats[’] number one provider of sound bites.”

Cheney responded in a tweet, “Here’s a sound bite for you: Bring it.”

Bush Attacked Trump Supporters On 9/11

On the recent 20th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks that killed 3,000 Americans, former President Bush made remarks comparing al Qaeda to the supposed threat of “domestic terrorism.” 

Commentators on both the left and right largely took Bush’s comments to mean not just the protesters at the Capitol riot, but Trump supporters writ large.

In response, President Trump took Bush to task:
