Donald Trump Calls Dick Cheney a Liar, “Very Angry and Nasty”

Dick Cheney’s new memoir “In My Time” hit shelves yesterday and — as with so many high-profile news-making items these days — Donald Trump has a very specific, irate opinion of it.
At least that’s the impression one might get from his latest video blog, in which he rales against the former vice president, the book and Cheney’s somewhat dicey media campaign to promote it.
“Our former vice president just penned a book and the’s very very angry and nasty. There’s no question — this is not a happy camper. He said bad things about the president — and I’m not a defender of Bush — but he really went after him. Essentially calling him a liar… And I could tell that Cheney was lying because he said ‘as I remember it.’ He was discussing the situation where they were talking about going into Iraq.”
Seems harsh? Well, to be fair, Trump notes that he hates Cheney, always has, (probably) always will and more or less loathes everything he stands for. Maybe that’s influencing his opinion of the book (which — FYI! — Trump mentions he hasn’t read and won’t.).
“I didn’t like Cheney when he was a vice president, I don’t like him now and I don’t like people who rat out everybody like he’s doing in the book.”
That’s right: Donald Trump hates snitches.
