Liz Cheney Now Accuses Donald Trump Of Using ‘Nazi Propaganda’
Former Representative Liz Cheney slammed Ronna McDaniel after the Republican National Committee (RNC) Chair refused to engage in a parsing of words regarding Donald Trump’s use of the word “vermin” to describe his political opponents.
Trump made the comments in a Truth Social media posting on Veteran’s Day.
“We pledge to you that we will root out the Communists, Marxists, Fascists, and Radical Left Thugs that live like vermin within the confines of our Country, lie, steal, and cheat on Elections, and will do anything possible, whether legally or illegally, to destroy America, and the American Dream,” he wrote.
In an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” the embattled McDaniel dodged questions on the post.
“I will say this, I know President Trump supports the veterans, our whole party supports our veterans,” she said. “And I do think we’re at a very serious moment in our country.”

Media, Democrats Are Outraged That Trump Called Political Opponents ‘Vermin’
The media and Democrats tend to respond in lockstep with their outrage whenever Trump compares people to animals. They literally did so when he referred to MS-13 gang members as … “animals.”
As such, they picked out the term “vermin” and jumped all over it, suggesting his use of the word is just like something Adolf Hitler would say.
White House spokesman Andrew Bates issued a statement suggesting that “terms like that” would be “horrifyingly recognizable to American veterans who put on their country’s uniform in the 1940s.”
Cheney, who some Trump supporters would say is the very definition of the “vermin” Trump is describing, echoed those very sentiments in her criticism of McDaniel.
“When [the GOP Chairwoman] refuses to condemn the GOP’s leading candidate for using the same Nazi propaganda that mobilized 1930s-40s Germany to evil, it’s fair to assume she’s collaborating,” Cheney wrote on X, the social media platform formerly Twitter.
“History will judge Ronna McDaniel and every Republican who is appeasing this dangerous man,” she added.

Trump Campaign Fires Back
Trump’s campaign fired back at the notion that his use of the word “vermin” is somehow coded Nazi language.
“Those who try to make that ridiculous assertion are clearly snowflakes grasping for anything because they are suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome and their sad, miserable existence will be crushed when President Trump returns to the White House,” a statement reads.
Spokesman denies that Trump rhetoric echoes that of dictators like Hitler and Mussolini and declares that those who say it does will find “their entire existence will be crushed when President Trump returns to the White House.” @marianne_levine https://t.co/yYLZbxNnv6

Cheney’s “sad, miserable” congressional existence was crushed during the midterms when she lost by over 37 points to Representative Harriet Hageman (R-WY).
Cheney’s father, Dick Cheney, who is another example of political vermin in some circles, spied on Americans and brought back torture tactics.
He was universally reviled as an integral figure in the “weapons of mass destruction” intelligence failure that led to a nearly 9-year war in Iraq that cost countless military and civilian lives.
Cheney and former President George W. Bush were repeatedly compared to Hitler throughout their administration. One might think daughter Liz would be a little more cautious when it comes to making similar remarks.
