Nimrata Randhawa, aka Nikki Haley, once had a promising career in politics. In 2010 she became the youngest governor in America at age 43, and she credited Hillary Clinton for her foray into politics. She was even critical of political albatross Donald Trump.
But that feels like a lifetime ago. At some point, Haley’s moderate side switched; maybe she was bitten by a radioactive bug. Maybe she drank the Kool-Aid while enjoying the rotten ends of a Trump steak. Maybe she got drunk off power. Nevertheless, Haley, who was always a member of the dark side, aka the Republican Party, has gone fully into the darkness as the United Nations ambassador and possible side chick to the president.
As such, Haley seems to have lost her way and her funny bone, since she didn’t seem to take too kindly to Sunday night’s Grammy segment that had Clinton, Cardi B and Snoop Dogg reading bits of the controversial book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.
“I have always loved the Grammys but to have artists read the Fire and Fury book killed it,” Haley tweeted on Sunday night, The Hill reports. “Don’t ruin great music with trash. Some of us love music without the politics thrown in it.”
Haley added that the segment “ruined” the show. She’s starting to sound like a really bitter snowflake.
I think the real reason that Haley didn’t take too kindly to the reading of Michael Wolff’s treatise on the presidency during the Grammys might have a bit to do with the book being the source of a rumor regarding an affair between Haley and the president.
During a recent appearance on HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher, Wolff noted that he absolutely believed that the president was having an affair but didn’t have enough proof to substantiate his suspicion. He added that anyone who read the book would see signs of the affair and have an “aha” moment once they figured it out. Many readers devoured the book and believe that a reported “private moment” on Air Force One between Haley and Trump was the “aha” moment that Wolff was alluding to.
“It is absolutely not true,” Haley told Politico. “I have literally been on Air Force One once, and there were several people in the room when I was there.”
We hear you, Haley, and I hope for your sake and your eyes that the rumors aren’t true. Sorry that the disgusting presidency ruined your Grammy experience, but better that than, say, the disgusting presidency ruining America.
