Twitter commenters were appalled by the conduct of Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) during her interview with Margaret Brennan on CBS, calling out the high-ranking GOP lawmaker for being downright “obnoxious” when asked to answer simple questions about President Donald Trump.
The interview, during which the combative Cheney chastised her host for not asking the questions she wanted to answer, was cut short by Brennan which led viewers to comment on how badly Cheney came across.
As one Twitter user wrote, “I’m a Republican and I am embarrassed that Rep. Liz Cheney —the daughter of a damn war criminal— has a leadership position in my party.”

Has Liz Cheney replaces Matt Gaetz as the most obnoxious member of Congress?

Liz’s soul is lost. I’m not sure going to church now can save it.

WTF!!! Called out Margaret as a liberal and therefore a foe. Minimized the content of Trump’s statement and double talked her way to support policies we never hear about. She’s looking for a job in the administration.

@RepLizCheney needs therapy. In dealing with her type I’ve learned absolutely nothing. She is if no more use than a frog’s fart to me.

its commendable that CBS cut off her interview, no one should get a platform to spout lies without being called on them.

Oh! CBS has our moral leader Liz Cheney on Face the Nation!
Let’s keep on pumping the white supremacists CBS!

Seriously. Is there some reason the 577,737 people who live in Wyoming put up with this?https://t.co/rQKxLb0vij
