The political action committee founded by former Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney released a television ad warning Americans that former President Donald Trump “is a risk America can never take again.”
The 60-second ad will air in the New Hampshire area before and after Trump appears online Wednesday night for a town hall session with host Kaitlan Collins.
Although it will reach viewers who tune in to the event on Wednesday, a CNN spokesperson said. the independent that the network “does not control the local ads that regularly air on CNN during local recesses” and emphasized that CNN “does not sell ads to candidates or campaign during our town hall events.”
Narrated by Cheney, the ad describes how Trump began lying about conducting the 2020 election after it became clear he would lose to Joe Biden.
Continuing, the former Wyoming congresswoman recalls that Trump “mobilized a mob to come to Washington and march on the Capitol” on the day that Congress was to certify the elections, January 6, 2021.
He goes on to talk about footage from the riots showing Trump supporters attacking police officers outside the Capitol.
“Trump was repeatedly warned that his plans for January 6 were illegal. He didn’t care, and today he celebrates those who attacked our Capitol. Donald Trump has shown that he is unfit for office,” he said.
Ms. Cheney founded the Super PAC with The Great Task ad, shortly after losing her House seat to now-Rep. Harriet Hageman. She was ousted by fellow Republicans of hers who were upset by her criticism of Trump and her service on the House select committee on January 6.
