Yesterday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) posted a Facebook video that criticized the United States for aiding Ukraine and said there is no point in helping Ukrainians since they “they cannot possibly win.” In response, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) came out swinging against the anti-LGBTQ conspiracy theorist.
Greene said a lot in the 11 minute and 28 second video, but Cheney was especially angry about a moment in which she said “both sides,” meaning both Russia and Ukraine, violated peace agreements.
“Putin is targeting and slaughtering civilians in a brutal unprovoked war against Ukraine, a sovereign democratic nation,” Cheney tweeted. “Only the Kremlin and their useful idiots would call that ‘a conflict in which peace agreements have been violated by both sides.”’

In the video, Greene also said the U.S. should stop providing “false hope” to the Ukrainian people “about a war they cannot win.”
She referred to President Biden as a “weak, dementia-ridden fossil,” and said the U.S. has a “duty” to help resolve the conflict peacefully by brokering peace talks.
Cheney has been attacked by fellow Republicans for criticizing Donald Trump’s claims that he actually won the 2020 election and for condemning the January 6th Capitol Insurrection. Her GOP colleagues voted to strip her of her leadership position in the caucus and prominent Republicans have denounced her publicly.
Cheney did vote against the Equality Act in 2021, despite claiming to support LGBTQ rights.
