Joe Biden is known to be a particularly friendly and approachable person. And the current president served in the United States Senate for decades. During this time he made many friends on both sides of the aisle.
After Biden delivered his 100-day speech on Wednesday night, he was congratulated by Democratic and Republican lawmakers alike. But before Biden even got on stage, Liz Cheney gave him an encouraging fist.
The Wyoming congresswoman had a target on her back since she charged Donald Trump with incitement to riot on Jan. 6. Donald Trump has already promised to support a primary challenge against them in 2022.

So it’s not surprising that the President’s sycophantic son, Donald Jr., was angry about Cheney’s decision to poke Biden with his fist.
Trump Jr. went to Twitter to write, “‘Republican warmonger Liz Cheney pokes Sleepy Joe after delivering a radical socialist vision for America’s future. I’m so glad she’s on the GOP leadership. I think they wanted to be more inclusive and bring democrats in there too?!? “

There have been efforts by Trump loyalists to knock out Cheney. Shortly after their vote against the former president, Matt Gaetz flew to Wyoming to hold an anti-Cheney rally.
The congresswoman’s fight against Trumpism only seems to solve the criticism of her further. She recently said she would not support the former president if he secured the 2024 nomination.
