Could Nikki Haley make it any easier for late night hosts to dunk on her?
Last night, Jimmy Kimmel exposed Haley's hypocrisy, yet again, during a bit about her outrage over Vice President Kamala Harris' Memorial Day Weekend tweet. After Harris wrote that Americans should "enjoy the long weekend," Haley and other Republicans "cranked the faux outrage knob up to 11," said Kimmel, and turned the moment into a days-long talking point. "Of course, the MAGA-verse was furious about this," said the ABC host. "Former Ambassador Nikki Haley called the vice president 'unprofessional' and 'unfit' because of this tweet."
"This is the same Nikki Haley who did nothing when Trump said he prefers war heroes who don't get captured," ripped Kimmel. "That was okay. No comment there."
Despite Trump's 2015 comment, plus others he's alleged to have made about Americans who died in war being "losers" and "suckers," Haley has said that she will support the former president if he chooses to run again in 2024. Of this spineless GOP crew, Kimmel had just one thing to say: "It's amazing these people still appear in public after what went on these last four years."
Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs weeknights at 11:35 PM ET on ABC.
