Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyoming) told 60 Minutes interviewer Leslie Stahl Sunday that she is now in support of same-sex marriage. Her previous stance against it had caused a widely reported rift between herself and her sister, Mary Cheney, who is a lesbian.
The daughters of Dick Cheney — who was the driving force behind a presidential administration that aggressively worked to codify anti-gay discrimination in state constitutions — have now kissed and made up. Liz says it's a personal issue, but it isn't, or should not be. It's not about your lesbian sister, it's about citizens in general, Liz.
She also throws in support for trans people.
If you didn't think Liz would run for president in 2024, you should think that now.
“I was wrong. I was wrong.” says Rep Liz Cheney about condemning same-sex marriage in 2013, a position that caused a split with her sister Mary, who is married to a woman. Rep Cheney says the sisters are now reconciled. “I love my sister very much.” https://t.co/EwRrkWDcT8 pic.twitter.com/KEdlqibZoJ— 60 Minutes (@60Minutes) September 26, 2021
