Liz Cheney is back. Kind of.

For the first time since she left office in early January, she has reemerged on Twitter — on familiar turf.

Wyoming’s former congresswoman lashed out at her former foe, Marjorie Taylor-Greene for seeming to advocate for secession.

Taylor-Greene on Monday morning said the country needed a “national divorce” with red states on one side and blue states on the other.

“Everyone I talk to says this,” the fiery congresswoman from Georgia said. “From the sick and disgusting woke culture issues shoved down our throats to the Democrat’s traitorous America Last policies, we are done.”

It’s unclear if Georgia, Taylor-Greene’s home state, would be on the red side or the blue side as 41% of populace is Republican and 41% is Democrat. The state voted for Biden in the presidential election.

Cheney’s issue with that Taylor-Greene’s call to action is that secession is unconstitutional.

“Let’s review some of the governing principles of America,” Cheney tweeted.

“Our country is governed by the Constitution,” Cheney said. “You swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution.”

“Secession is unconstitutional. No member of Congress should advocate for secession, Marjorie,” Cheney said.

If you were hoping for a rip-roaring back and forth between the former foes, you’ll be disappointed. Taylor-Greene didn’t respond.

Taylor-Greene did mention Cheney a few days ago, however, when former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley announced she was running for president.

“If we wanted a ‘Bush in heels,’ Republicans would vote for Liz Cheney,” she tweeted on February 15.

Taylor-Greene, later on Monday, wished former President Trump a happy birthday and vowed to support his bid for presidency in 2024.
