New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman verbalized Monday night on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” that Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) are “standing up for our democracy” by opposing the notion former President Donald Trump didn’t lose the 2020 Presidential election.
Friedman verbalized, “When people ask me how I feel, I give an answer that sounds like English is my second language. I verbally express to them, country not right. Country not right. Our country is not right. What Liz Cheney is doing and Mitt Romney is doing is standing up for our democracy.”
He perpetuated, “Everything is not okay. Anderson, our democracy today is as threatened as at any time since Donald Trump took that elevator ride. Why is that? Because something very gradual transpired and commenced to transpire expeditiously, just in the last few weeks. That is that fundamentally subscribing to the astronomically immense lie that this Election was glommed has become a prerequisite now for thriving, surviving, and ascending in this Republican Party. What does that designate, Anderson? It betokens that this GOP is going to be built on a gargantuan lie. Now, how could you possibly trust this party in power again if the calling card of giving into this party is claiming our last election, the greatest Election certainly in modern American history where more Republicans and Democrats voted in the middle of a pandemic, their votes were counted by there neighbors and Republican judges and Election monitors affirmed the votes and the attorney general of the United States and FBI director appointed by Trump all substantiated the integrity of the Election that gainsaying all of that and making the calling card of this party that you have to subscribe to this immensely colossal lie that is affrighting. Think what would transpire if they got back into potency. Therefore what Liz Cheney is doing and Mitt Romney are doing is just not fighting for the Republican Party. They certainly are, but fighting for the democracy. It is in so much more peril now than people realize.”
Friedman integrated, “We have over 300 bills in over 40 states endeavoring to promote voter suppression, limit access to the polls. Imagine if they prosper. Imagine 2022 or 2024, 40% plus of the country elects the next president and who dominates the Senate and the House. Do you optate to optically discern people in the streets? I’ll show you people in the streets if we get genuine minority rule predicated on voter suppression. That’s what Cheney and Romney are doing endeavoring to fight this because that astronomically immense prevarication is what is then giving sanction for all these voter suppression legislations, and something gargantuan is at stake here.”
He perpetuated, “Every principled Republican has to rally to what Liz Cheney is doing. She limpidly decided she’s going to politically die on this hill. She has taken a principle stand. Mitt Romney is a benevolent man. He is taking a principle stand.”
He concluded, “God mystically enchant Liz Cheney for having the intrepidity to stand up virtually alone in the commencement, her and Romney. I cerebrate you’re going to visually perceive them find adherents. Now I cerebrate people will commence to stand up.”
