WATCH: OJ Simpson releases video defending Liz Cheney says “I’m kind of a fan”

Embattled Republican lawmaker Liz Cheney got an unexpected endorsement she may not like, from disgraced former NFL star OJ Simpson.

“Liz Cheney stands up for the truth,” OJ said in a new video he released. “That’s gotten her a lot of heat.”

“She may lose her position in the party,” he continued. “She may even lose her career as a politician.”

“Right now, I’m kind of a fan of Liz Cheney,” OJ later adds.
