Fox News host Tucker Carlson unleashed a scathing rebuke of GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley after CNN’s Don Lemon was criticized by both the right and the left for his comments about Haley.
Per The Daily Caller, Carlson opened his show by addressing Lemon’s comments that Haley was past her “prime.”
According to the Fox News host, Lemon “has been sentenced by the high court of wokeness to a term in the HR gulag, to undergo a procedure called sensitivity training, which is always the first step to be disappeared or doing late night infomercials.”
“To be fair to Don Lemon, Nikki Haley seemed like perfectly fair game, she’s a Republican presidential candidate, savage her all you want. Oh, but no, because in fact, in all ways that matter, Nikki Haley is a member in good standing of the most protected class of all,” Carlson said, before likening Haley to a neoliberal.
He continued: “She may be running to be the Republican nominee, but she is fundamentally indistinguishable from the neoliberal donor base of the Democratic Party. Nikki Haley believes in collective racial guilt. She thinks Ukraine’s borders are more important than our own, far more important. She believes identity politics is our future. Vote for me, because I’m a woman, that’s her pitch.”
The backlash, Carlson maintained, reflected how “the revolution eats one of their own, the faithful servant of the Democratic Party is crushed by its relentless gears.”
“This is the unsentimental math of identity politics,” he added. “Not all groups are created equal.”
Haley, former U.N. ambassador and South Carolina governor, has also received heavy criticism from President Donald Trump after she announced her bid for the White House in 2024 earlier this month.
As previously reported by RSBN, the president released a brutal statement exposing “The Real Nikki Haley.” The press release explored a few of Haley’s controversial statements, such as naming Hillary Clinton as the “reason” she ran for office and her comments about the Ukraine-Russia war.
Despite announcing her candidacy Haley continues to trail behind President Trump in hypothetical GOP primary races, even in her own state.
According to a poll conducted by Neighborhood Research and Media, Trump received 35.1 percent of support from voters in South Carolina. Potential candidate Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., came in second with 21.8 percent support, while Haley only managed to receive 16.4 percent.
