Haley Mocked for Campaigning in South Carolina

Republicans and political pundits mercilessly mocked former Gov. Nikki Haley on Wednesday for moving her campaign to South Carolina instead of dropping out of the GOP primary.

The mockery underscores Haley’s lack of viability in the South Carolina primary, despite being the state’s former governor.

After former President Donald Trump gave Haley a sound drubbing in New Hampshire on Tuesday, the consensus among Republicans, media personalities, and Trump opponents was that Haley should graciously concede to Trump.

Haley refused to drop out, however, deeming the election a “great night” while making it clear she viewed the race as “far from over.” On Wednesday, she claimed Trump lied about her globalist record and that Republican voters in South Carolina would not fall for the alleged lies.

Haley’s globalist policies are quite clear:

  • Believes in defending Ukraine’s border with American taxpayer funds.
  • Supports importing migrants for jobs that would otherwise go to better-paid Americans.
  • Urges not to call illegal aliens “criminals” because “they’re not.”

“Donald Trump’s only strategy is to lie about me and my record,” Haley posted on X. “That’s not going to work in South Carolina. The people of South Carolina know that I cut their taxes, passed one of the toughest immigration bills in the country, and moved thousands from welfare to work.”

Verified X users quickly pummeled Haley for her claims. “Ma’am, Democrats won’t be voting for you in SC in February…. we are a RED state!!!!!! Trump signs are in everyone’s yard here,” Kasey Lynae commented on Haley’s post.

Many of the voters who cast a ballot in New Hampshire were not Republicans. According to CNN exit polling data, 70 percent of Haley’s voters were not registered Republicans, a massive number for a candidate who claims to be a conservative.

“Nikki you literally just had like all of the Dems vote for you and still lost lol. What margin did you actually lose by in reality?” asked an account named “Don – Disruptor.”

“Nikki’s record is that she’s now lost two primaries by a wide margin,” X user Paul A. Szypula said. “She’ll certainly lose South Carolina by a lot more. She has no path to victory. She’s just wasting donor millions that could’ve been better spent helping Americans in need. Nikki is horribly selfish.”

“Stop acting like you accomplished anything,” Patriots Press account commented. “You got 70% of your votes in NH from ‘non-Republicans’. Your own party despises you! Drop out already, we’re so tired of you.”

As Haley looks toward South Carolina for her first win, though very unlikely, she appeared to ignore the upcoming Republican primary in Nevada. The lapse of focus on the next primary contest highlights her lack of seriousness as a viable candidate.

“The structure of [the primary] is really amazing,” she told PBS in January. “Iowa starts it. You change personalities, you go into New Hampshire.” she said.

“They continue on, and by the time it gets to South Carolina,” she added, “it gets bigger going into Super Tuesday. There’s something very cool about the process.”
