Nikki Haley fires back at Whoopi Goldberg: ‘If my age is all they have, it means we’re winning’
Republican 2024 presidential candidate Nikki Haley responded Monday to an attack by “The View”, co-host Whoopi Goldberg who claimed that former U.N. Ambassador is not part “new generation” due to her age.
Goldberg showed a clip of Haley calling on a new generation in Washington, D.C. leadership. She then said, “You’re not new generation, you are 51.”
Haley joined “The Story”, to discuss the media furore over her decision to challenge President Trump and other candidates for the GOP nomination.
Haley stated, “It’s not a new thing.” This happened when I ran to be governor. This has been my experience all my life. Some minority Democrats said that I wasn’t a minority and she was just a conservative with an a-tan when I was elected governor. They’ll come at me with all their problems. She said that none of this bothers her.
Haley stated that she was ready to be a target for liberal media, but not expecting her age to be the center of their attacks.
She said, “If my age matches theirs, it means they’re winning.” “I’m fine with that.”
Alyssa Farah Griffin, a co-host of “View,” noted that Haley was part a new generation when compared to many politicians in D.C. Goldberg responded, “It is not a new age.” Although she may be younger than many of these people, her rhetoric is the exact same. She is repeating the same BS.”
Goldberg made the comment the day Lemon was removed from his show for his comments regarding Haley. Lemon made the comment while defending Haley’s call that politicians over 75 years of age undergo mental competency tests. Citing “Google”, Lemon said that the ex-governor will face a difficult task in winning the presidency, since women are in their prime in their 20s, 30s, and 40s.
Lemon was fired after the comment sparked intense backlash. On Friday, the CNN host made an apology to his colleagues. However, an insider at Fox News Digital told Fox News Digital that Lemon has no plans to return to television before Tuesday. He said that he was “taking the vacation” Monday and that his return depends on “where he’s at.”
Haley was charged with using her Brown skin to “launder White supremacist talk points” in a racially charged interview she did on MSNBC Sunday night.
Haley stated that the comment further exposed the hypocrisy of mainstream media. She noted how Kamala Harris, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, was praised for running as a woman-of-color, while Haley is being accused of using her “Brown skin to score political points.
“The problem with it is that it’s just the hypocrisy in all of it. Haley stated that if Republicans had said the same thing about a Democrat candidate they would have lost all their minds. “Everybody would have asked for everyone to be fired. All of it. This is yet another example of the hypocrisy displayed by liberals. They are quick to judge. They are quick to throw stones. They act as if we are the bad ones when they throw stones at them. They’re really revealing themselves for who they are.”
