On Sunday (May 28), former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) didn’t get the warmest of receptions when she gave the commencement address at her alma mater, Colorado College.

Cheney, who was ousted from the Wyoming seat in August after a tumultuous year in Congress, lost much of the Republican Party’s support after she repeatedly criticized former President Donald Trump following the January 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Her fellow GOP colleagues removed Cheney as the third-ranking Republican in the House after she voted to impeach then-President Trump for his alleged involvement in the insurrection.

Cheney was also one of two Republicans on the House Select Committee to investigate January 6, alongside fellow former Rep. Adam Kinzinger, the other panel member.

When Cheney arrived at the private liberal arts college, some students seemed eager to express their distaste for Cheney by booing her.

Some graduates also turned their chairs so their backs faced the former congresswoman as she delivered the commencement address.

Despite receiving negative responses from some, according to the Daily Mail reporting, many students and their parents applauded Cheney’s speech.

Images surfaced on Twitter showing one graduate wearing a graduation sign that read: “Why listen to a racist, imperialist, transphobic, warmonger?” adding, “Your hate is loud.”

Many social media users believed the student’s message was a jab at Cheney and the GOP.

However, Trump’s supporters believed the graduates booed and turned their backs on Cheney to show support for the former President.

One Twitter user, who claims to be “ultra MAGA” in their Twitter bio, stated, “Half the graduates turned their chairs to show her their backs!”
