Rep. Liz Cheney said Wednesday that actor Christian Bale blew his chance to portray a “real superhero” like her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney.

Christian Bale finally had the chance to play a real superhero, and he clearly screwed it up,” the Wyoming Republican said on “Fox & Friends.” She also serves as the chairwoman of the House Republican Conference, a position held by her father in the late ‘80s.

Mr. Bale, who plays the former vice president in the 2018 movie “Vice,” declared during his Golden Globes acceptance speech Sunday night that “Satan” inspired his performance.

Ms. Cheney fired back, saying she’s “incredibly proud” of her father.

“I haven’t seen the movie,” she added. “We’re in a situation where we’ve got really important work to do to get the border secure and to make sure that the Democrats stop playing games, come to the table.”

This isn’t the first time Ms. Cheney has ripped Mr. Bale’s remarks. On Sunday night, she tweeted an Independent article from 2008 about Mr. Bale’s arrest in London for an alleged assault on his mother and sister. He was never charged in the incident.

“Satan probably inspired him to do this, too,” Ms. Cheney quipped.
