Never Trumper and faithless neocon turncoat Nikki Haley sure seems to have a good feel for which way the wind is blowing.
In January, this shameless opportunist blasted Trump for allegedly “inciting violence” before the January 6 Capitol riot. Any fool who looked at the available evidence even semi-objectively could see that all such charges were blatantly fabricated, but Haley didn’t care.
Like so many others before her, she pronounced Trump’s impending doom, and she was wrong. Trump was acquitted, and people still love the man as much as—if not more than—ever.
Noticing this, Haley did an about-face and began praising Trump.
But no one is fooled. Liars and criminals like Nikki Haley have no idea why people love Trump so much, and their continued failure to learn that lesson has been the source of much of their suffering.
All that Haley’s recent behavior shows is that that suffering deserves to continue.
Nikki Haley: Blatant Opportunist
After January 6, Haley made all kinds of cocksure but ridiculous pronouncements about what the future would hold for Trump. “I think he’s going to find himself further and further isolated,” she scoffed.
“I don’t think he’s going to be in the picture.”
It would have been better to say such things about Nikki Haley herself.
Earlier in February, Haley reportedly tried to secure a meeting with Trump at Mar-a-Lago. She even tweeted in support of Trump’s recent CPAC speech.
Thank goodness that he shot her down.
Trump can see that she is a snake, friendly one day and vicious the next—all depending on the vagaries of politics.
None of Them Understand Trump
A more interesting question is: How could Nikki Haley have been so wrong about what would happen to Trump after January 6? How could she have been stupid enough to ever think that Trump’s political star would fall?
After all, Trump supporters aren’t stupid. They could see that the charges against him were made up.
The answer, one would suggest, is that Nikki Haley, like all Never Trumpers—Democrat and Republican—still don’t understand what it is that originally propelled Trump’s rise. The truth is, people love Trump because they hate people like Nikki Haley. They know her kind as liars, criminals, and corrupt exploiters of the people, and they love Trump because Trump stood up for the people and against the political class.
People like Nikki Haley don’t understand this because they don’t want to understand. They don’t want to learn any lessons. They only want to hold on to power by any means necessary.
But people can see through the façade now. They aren’t buying it.
