Wilmore: Even Fox News Doesn’t Believe Dick Cheney’s Lies On Iraq Invasion, Iran Deal (VIDEO)

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Former Vice President Dick Cheney is back on the cable news rotation, urging Americans voters and politicians to be against the Iran nuclear deal — and “The Nightly Show” host Larry Wilmore is not happy.

“There’s something wrong with the world when you lose Jon Stewart and retain Dick Cheney,” Wilmore said on Thursday night.

“The Nightly Show” played an interview with Dick Cheney, in which the former VP tried to blame the Middle East’s nuclear proliferation on President Barack Obama’s administration. Fox News anchor Chris Wallace quickly corrected Cheney.

“If Chris Wallace hadn’t called you out on it, you’d been happy for everyone to just swallow that poison pill,” Wilmore said. “A poison pill that even Fox News choked on.”

But Wilmore wasn’t done.

“You knew it was wrong, you knew how it would end up and you did it anyway. You never apologized, you never admitted your mistakes. You just drop little lie bombs and make the brother clean up your mess,” Wilmore said. “You are living in an extreme cognitive dissonance that not even Bill Belichick would recognize.”
