STUMPER: Trump acolyte throws her hat in the ring for 2024

VIRAL: Old Nikki Haley videos on racism resurface and it's not a good look

Former South Carolina Governor and United Nations Ambassador (🙄) Nikki “My Real Name is Nimrata” Haley has done exactly one good thing in her entire political career.

After telling right-wing radio host Glenn Beck in 2019 that the Confederate flag symbolized “service, sacrifice and heritage” for “some people” in her state until Dylann Roof “hijacked” it when he murdered Black members of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in 2015), Haley finally had it removed from all state buildings.

That’s really not enough to build a presidential campaign on, but Haley co-opted Valentine’s Day anyway to announce her candidacy for 2024, the first to challenge Donald Trump.

Nimrata tweeted her official announcement video on Tuesday, in which she claims she doesn’t “put up with bullies,” (meaning: Trump, whom she also has said she “never really supported”) but methinks the opportunistic lady doth lie a whole bunch.


“You should know this about me. I don’t put up with bullies. And when you kick back, it hurts them more if you’re wearing heels,” Haley says in the video. “I’m Nikki Haley, and I’m running for president.”

You should know this about Nikki: she said in 2019 that she didn’t support Trump’s impeachment because “I don’t know what you would impeach him on,” and called him “truthful.”

You should know that Nimrata said in 2021 that she wouldn’t run for president in 2024 if Trump was running.

I might suggest you don’t listen to anything she says, because she’s an opportunistic liar.


So…if she’s that easily flipped for her own gain, do you think she’ll be putting anyone’s needs ahead of hers?

Twitter certainly didn’t think so either.
