Fact Check: Did Liz Cheney Call Donald Trump a 'Cute Russian B***h'?

From Newsweek | Analysis by Tom Norton

After her loss in the Republican primary for Wyoming's congressional district, Rep. Liz Cheney has kept up her criticism of Donald Trump and his supporters in the GOP.

Cheney, who lost her party primary ahead of the November midterms to Trump-backed Harriet Hageman, has said she "won't be a Republican" if the former president becomes the party nominee, and that she would do "everything I can" to prevent it.

So, when Trump recently indicated that the U.S. could lose in conflict with Russia, the congresswoman's strident tone appeared to be in full force yet again.

The post on Reddit, which purported to be from Cheney, hit back at these comments in somewhat uncharacteristic language. However, while efforts were made to make it seem as if it were from the congresswoman, it's a convincing fake.
