Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara slam dunks Liz Cheney for being a stooge for Donald Trump

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) appeared on the ABC weekly news show “This Week” Sunday and did little more than spout White House talking points on the issues of North Korea and Iran, leading to Cheney getting a major slap down online from former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara.

Asked about recent news that North Korea is again testing missiles and the Trump administration is sending a carrier battle group and 1,500 additional U.S. military personnel to the Middle East, Cheney tried desperately to blame the developments on former President Barack Obama, telling host Martha Raddatz:

“My view, Martha, is that we are doing the right thing in terms of the policy towards North Korea, and when you look at the situation President Trump inherited, whether you’re talking about North Korea, whether you’re talking about Iran, whether you’re talking about the tremendous hole that the Obama Administration dug with respect to our armed forces around the world, the president is doing the right thing.”

Cheney added that she fully supported the saber rattling Trump has been aiming in the direction of the Iranians:

“There’s no question but that this threat. It’s very important for the Iranians to understand that we’ll do what’s necessary to deter them from attacking us through our interests and we’ll do what’s necessary to make sure that they understand we aren’t simply going to sit back and allow them to take action that will put our people in harm’s way. I think the president is doing exactly the right thing and I support the actions.”

Cheney’s blind obedience to the president earned her widespread ridicule on Twitter, including from Bharaha. Take a look:
