Nikki Haley, the former South Carolina governor whose career stopped dead after her term expired, has decided to trash President Trump – the man who rejuvenated her political career – over “his role” in the alleged insurrection on January 6th.
It’s been rumored Haley wants to run for president in 2024. Are y’all ready for Jeb 2.0?
Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley issued stunning remarks breaking with former President Trump, telling Politico in an interview that she believes he “let us down.”
“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” Haley, who served in her ambassador role under Trump, said. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”
Haley’s remarks are her strongest yet against the former president in the aftermath of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and come as Trump’s legal team is set to present its defense of Trump on Friday in his second Senate impeachment trial.
This is how Haley, and frankly, many other members of the GOP establishment, have treated the president after he left office. Personally I think it’s despicable to trash someone who revitalized the entire GOP, including drones like Haley, Graham, and McConnell.
“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” Haley said. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”
“Like?” What are you, a sixth grader? Pence turned on the president the day after the election and refused to even suggest there was rampant fraud during the election. But hey, Nikki, you do you.
Haley said that the president “believes he is following” his oath of office by challenging the election results, adding, “There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election.”
Super, another GOP clown who believes the 2020 election was completely on the up-and-up. I’m surprised she didn’t use Obama’s line of “Not a smidgen of corruption.” Look, if you want to believe in fairy tales, who am I to argue? Was there enough fraud to overturn the election? Who knows? No one ever investigated the claims. But if you don’t think there were severe abnormalities in the 2020 election, you’re either willfully ignorant or you’re on Team OrangeManBad.
Good luck with your presidential run, Nikki. It’ll be a very short campaign.
