Liz Cheney has a view of America’s relationship with her father that seems very much at odds with reality. During an interview with CBS, she explained that Americans actually feel a great deal of gratitude for her dad.

“I know, for all of us who love you, the gratitude as Americans that we feel is matched only by our love for him,” Liz said.

This was part of an interview where Cheney defended himself and his decisions during the Bush presidency.

“If you’re just nothing but warmth and friendliness and so forth, you can’t seriously deal with the kinds of issues I’ve had to deal with over the years, and that I wanted to deal with,” Dick said. “It’s almost, I think, if you are criticism-free, then you’re probably not doing your job.”
