CNN on Tuesday ran an “exclusive” report involving excerpts from Liz Cheney’s new book that they “obtained” on Tuesday, prompting mockery from Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald.

The network announced several excerpts from the book had been perused by a collaboration of reporters, one of which, Jeremy Herb, posted tidbits on the X social media platform.

“Liz Cheney takes on McCarthy, Johnson and the GOP in her new book obtained by CNN, condemning her former colleagues and party leaders as ‘enablers and collaborators’ of Trump,” announced Herb. “Lots of new behind-the-scenes details.”

Greenwald suggested that Cheney, a frequent guest of CNN since becoming a media darling through her rabid opposition to former President Donald Trump, likely just gave them the book to read in advance.

“Congrats on this unbelievable, groundbreaking scoop and the dangers and risks you had to face to obtain it,” he quipped.

Added Greenwald, “He thinks he’s going to win a Pulitzer, or become some brave journalistic icon, for agreeing to do PR work for Liz Cheney and her publisher.”

Cheney’s Book Has Some Incredible Claims

Aside from the general tenor of the book being that of “Trump is bad” and “Republicans who support him hate democracy” – basically Liz Cheney’s entire platform since January 6th – CNN offers very little in the way of ‘groundbreaking’ news.

In fact, the very first big scoop in Herb’s social media postings is a story relayed by Cheney that left several followers rather skeptical of its accuracy.

According to CNN, one of the big takeaways is a conversation between Cheney and Representative Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), the former being upset with the latter over a photo-op he had with Trump just weeks after January 6th.

“Mar-a-Lago? What the hell, Kevin?” Cheney allegedly asked.

“They’re really worried,” McCarthy replied. “Trump’s not eating, so they asked me to come see him.”

“What? You went to Mar-a-Lago because Trump’s not eating?” Cheney continued with McCarthy responding, “Yeah, he’s really depressed.”

The media and Democrats have engaged in an unceasing effort to portray Trump as a traitor to the country and the juiciest tidbit, the lead “notable detail” from CNN’s reporter, is that he was hungry.

Does a visual of Trump pop into your head of him poking around at his taco bowl with a fork and sighing repeatedly under any circumstances?

“CNN is acting like they got a great scoop because Liz Cheney gave them her new anti-GOP book,” Greenwald commented. “She chose CNN because she knows it’s dumb liberals who will buy this.”

Numerous comments in response to Herb’s post suggest the conversation that Cheney claims to have taken place about Trump being depressed and hungry was fabricated. Whether it was Cheney or McCarthy behind the story remains to be seen.

“Yeah, nah, that didn’t happen,” one person wrote.

Cheney Identifies Who Called Trump ‘Orange Jesus’

Another big scoop from the CNN report in Liz Cheney’s book is a comment from a House Republican who allegedly referred to Trump as “orange Jesus.”

This is something only CNN, their viewers, and Cheney would find newsworthy because it is most likely how they refer to Trump behind closed doors.

Cheney claimed last September that a fellow House member called Trump “the orange Jesus” on January 6th. In her book, she reveals that the person was Republican Congressman Mark Green of Tennessee.

“As he moved down the line, signing his name to the pieces of paper, Green said sheepishly to no one in particular, ‘The things we do for the Orange Jesus,'” she wrote.

Cheney’s book is titled “Oath and Honor,” one which she broke, the other she lost.

It falls in line with her colleague and fellow former lawmaker Adam Kinzinger, who view themselves as being saviors of the Republic as they continue to misidentify their ongoing mental struggles.

Kinzinger’s book was titled “Renegade.”

Cheney recently accused Trump of using “Nazi propaganda” by calling criminals crossing the border illegally “vermin.”

Cheney’s perpetual infatuation with the former President led to a crushing defeat in the midterms when she lost by over 37 points to Representative Harriet Hageman (R-WY).

Trump spokesman Steven Cheung told CNN that Cheney’s book belonged “in the fiction section of the bookstore.”
