Liz Cheney, daughter of Iraq War mastermind, notorious war criminal, and blood profiteer Dick Cheney, threw a fit on Twitter this afternoon because she heard that whistleblower Chelsea Manning was made a visiting fellow at Harvard University.
.@Harvard names convicted spy/traitor Chelsea Manning visiting fellow. All money they receive from U.S. govt should be cut off. Now.

She angrily demanded that government cut off all funding for the school, but considering that the endowment of the school is over a billion dollars, the only funds that would likely be cut off are scholarships for poor students.
Manning likely provokes Cheney’s ire because the documents Manning leaked to the public revealed secrets about the horrors of the Iraq War and the role her reprehensible father played in hoodwinking the American people, throwing an entire region into chaos, and the deaths of a million innocent people just so his companies could make a profit.
The denizens of Twitter quickly piled on her and set the record straight.
If there’s anyone who deserves to spend a few decades in solitary confinement, it’s Dick Cheney.
