Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney is currently trailing in the polls for reelection.
In an attempt to boost her campaign, Cheney posted a photo of Hollywood actor Kevin Costner wearing a t-shirt that reads “I’m For Liz Cheney.”
Take a look:

Cheney captioned the photo, “Real men put country over party.”
Republican primary challenger, attorney Harriet Hageman, responded by saying “‘Yellowstone’ is a good show, but Kevin Costner is a pretend rancher in a Hollywood production shot mostly in Montana, not Wyoming.”
Hageman continued, “And I’d bet that if he had to work a real ranch for a day, he’d call his agent to get him out of there.”
“I’ll take the support of the people of Wyoming any day of the week over a liberal actor who voted for Joe Biden.”
Others also responded on Twitter to Cheney. Here’s a look:
The multimillionaire Hollywood endorsement plays well in Wyoming.

Liz couldn’t find a Wyoming voter that supports her,
so — naturally — she had to settle for an actor that lives in Colorado.
Sounds about right.

But he's not a real man, he's just playing one on television. Just like you're not a real Republican
