Dick Cheney Surprised By Lesbian Daughter's 'Attack' On Sister Over Marriage Equality Opposition

Careful, Dick. 

You might be accused of choosing sides.  Dick Cheney spoke to ABC News and briefly touched on the public scuffle that's taking place between his daughters over marriage equality. 

Apparently he doesn't like that his daughter Mary and her wife Heather are "attacking" poor Liz for her opposition to marriage equality.

ABC News writes:

Former Vice President Dick Cheney reluctantly commented today on the rift between his two daughters Liz and Mary Cheney, saying that he was surprised that Mary, who is lesbian, and her wife attacked Liz on Facebook.

“We were surprised that there was an attack launched against Liz on Facebook, and wished it hadn’t happened,” Cheney said at the National Press Club. “It’s always been dealt with within the context of the family and frankly that’s our preference.”


Today, Cheney said the incident is “obviously a difficult thing for a family,” but he declined to comment any further on the controversy or his position on gay marriage.

“That’s as far as I’m going to go on the subject,” Cheney told his interviewer. “Don’t waste your time.”

We don't think it's an attack to call someone out on their BS--especially when said someone is a family member that's supporting legislation that will hurt you and the people you love. 

For the record, Mary's wife Heather simply stated on Facebook:

“Liz has been a guest in our home, has spent time and shared holidays with our children, and when Mary and I got married in 2012 — she didn’t hesitate to tell us how happy she was for us. To have her now say she doesn’t support our right to marry is offensive to say the least.”

If anything, she was polite. 

What do you think of the former Vice President's comments, Instincters?

He needs to stop being a politician and be a dad.. 

If he love his daughter and support her, then why can't u support all people who want to marry. 

He has nothing but a good example of gay marriage right in his face. 

He will regret this later in life if not then, then on his death bed. 

Support your daughter now not when it's to late  

Dick Cheney - what a waste of a perfectly good donor heart.
