John Cassidy: Nikki Haley, Trump's former Ambassador to the U.N., is one of many Republicans who have adopted a see-no-evil posture when it comes to the President.

I've figured out that many people see Trump's lack of morality and lack of competence as an opportunity. A big, wide door left open into Candy Land.

I've seen speculation that Haley could be tapped to replace Pence, or even installed as the GOP candidate to blunt the possibility of Dems being the ticket that seeks our first female president.

I see no other reasonable explanations for her very sudden and very public shift to a pure Trump sycophant.

"Haley, who is often mentioned as a possible Presidential candidate for 2024"

If Donald gets a second term, he'll try for three. Failing that, one of his brats will be selected to take his place.

If Ms. Haley wants any chance to be president, she'd better help keep this place a democracy.

It's what someone has to do if they want to stay in the R party. It's that or leave.

Please let one of Orange Dufus sons run for president. I would think even retardlicians would see them as the
Morons that they are.

Trumpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Trumpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Trumpty together again.

She must be one of those America-hating Immigrants I hear about, come here to destroy us from within.
She even took on a fake American sounding name to try and pass as white.
Maybe some cultures just don't have the moral fiber to be Americans.

"asking for a favor that didn't happen and"and giving money, and it wasn't withheld. I don't know what you would impeach him on."

Translation: The alarm went off, and the cops got there before any money could be stolen. See? That means the bank robbers are innocent!

Rs have turned into The Gaslight Party.

Nimrata Randhawa for President in 2024. It just flows off the tongue...

Does anyone think for a minute that GOPers would vote for a brown-skinned woman with dangerous, foreign-looking parents for president? Hell, HRC would get a significant percentage of GOP votes in that race...

If she can push Pence out of the way she's seeing an opportunity to be President when Trump resigns. I don't like her, never have, but she is a smart politician.

Actually, we are a democracy. In the example of our United States, the terms republic and democracy are not mutually exclusive. But you have needed to pay more attention in middle school, or reviewed something more than Fox News all day, to understand this.

Republicans are masters of the art of 'situational ethics.'

In other words, Republican politicos have no moral code they abide by.

They voted for her to be governor of South Carolina.

So, yes. I do think that. Somehow they can tell she's one of theirs. She probably has a Clinton-sized Bible to help assuage any fears.

Her approval rating among Republicans is sky-high.

It's funny that you are so bigoted in your view of Republicans that you WAY overstate that Republicans would reject her due to her gender and race.

The lack of self-awareness in that post is hilarious.

I don't see anything sycophantic regarding not going along with attempts to undermine the duly elected President.

I don't recall any of his subordinates actively trying to submarine his foreign policy initiatives.

Undermine? Trump committed a crime of his own volition.

BTW, the fact the Ukraine got their military aid - only after the whistleblower complaint was made public - does not absolve him.

That's because none of his foreign policy initiatives involved delaying Congressionally-approved aid until the foreigners produced dirt on Mitt Romney.

But pretend he did...would that be a GOOD thing, or a BAD thing?

You haven't been watching her interviews. She does a lot more than that.

She used to speak truth to power when it came to Trump. Her tone has changed dramatically. There's a reason for it, and we'll see that soon enough.

You're on the wrong thread. Nikki Haley left the administration before the Ukraine call took place and her memoir has nothing to do with Ukraine.

You are correct. I haven't watched her interviews. I do applaud you for posting on topic. Banner, Danforth and AU are all trying to make this thread about Ukraine.

I agree with #1. I used to think this was just to take Pence's place,

Now I think Haley is positioning herself as the torch bearer -- apologies to the good people bearing torches on the other side -- to the white nationalism that Trump has normalized in mainstream GOP politics.

And, I defy anyone to say this isn't the natural progression of Lee Atwater's Southern Strategy.

If we were a democracy, Hillary would have won. But since we are a Republic, with sovereign states, the states said Trump won..

Why do I have to keep educating you?

Nope. Actually unelected anonymous ELECTORS did. They are the ones who actually pick the president. They get a RECOMMENDATION from their citizens, and they are actually supposed to ignore that recommendation if the citizens select someone unqualified, like a lifelong con artist and moronic racist. They didnt do their jobs so they dont deserve them. They failed to perform the one reason they exist.
