Liz Cheney Appears on ’60 Minutes’ and Tells Leslie Stahl That She No Longer Opposes Same-Sex Marriage

U.S. House Rep Liz Cheney (R-WY) appeared tonight on CBS’ “60 Minutes” and told host Leslie Stahl that she no longer opposes same-sex marriage.

The revelation is the latest to drift the three term congresswoman further from the party, although in another part of the interview, she defended various conservative positions that she still supposedly holds, although no telling when she might abandon those, in our view.

In a clip that was tweeted by “60 Minutes,” Cheney acknowledged, “I was wrong. I was wrong.” in regards to her condemnation of same-sex marriage in 2013.

The position caused a split with her sister Mary, who is married to a woman, but Cheney said the sisters are now reconciled and that she loves her “sister very much.”

Cheney added, “We need to work against discrimination of all kinds in our country” and she recalled an event at which a transgender woman spoke out about feeling unsafe.

“Nobody should feel unsafe. Freedom means freedom for everybody,” Cheney explained.

In another clip, which was transcribed by “60 Minutes,” Cheney was quizzed by Stahl on what conservative values she still holds.

STAHL: You’re anti-abortion.

CHENEY: I’m pro-life, yes…

STAHL: You’re pro-gun rights. And you voted to repeal Obamacare. Do you regret that vote?

CHENEY: I do not. No.

STAHL: Waterboarding, aka torture.

CHENEY: Well, it’s not torture.

The apparent reason for the questioning is due to the fact that a record amount of money has poured into Cheney’s reelection campaign and some donors, according to “60 minutes,” are Democrats.

Much of the interview was dedicated towards Trump bashing and Cheney even criticized House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) for essentially refusing to follow her lead.

Cheney even declared that anyone who doesn’t vote for her to retain her seat was voting against the Constitution.
