Trump Ally Accuses Nikki Haley of Having MULTIPLE Affairs When Her Husband Was Deployed Overseas

This is straight-up slander.

Let’s get this out of the way right off the bat: We’re no fans of Nikki Haley. We can say she’d be a damn sight better as president than Donald Trump would be while still also meaning that we would never want her to be president.

That said, the latest attacks on her are outrageous.

I think I’m personally offended because of who it is doing most of the fueling of the rumors about Haley. I, along with most other close watchers of political punditry, thought that Laura Loomer was a relic of the past I thought her fifteen minutes of fame had come and gone.

This is a woman who chained herself to the front doors of Twitter HQ when they suspended her account. She has wild outbursts in courtrooms. She will do literally anything for attention, and she is a hard-core Trump supporter.

Laura Loomer is cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs.

But here she is, after Nikki Haley had a few good showings in some primaries — not winning them, mind you, just not slinking away with her tail between her legs like the Trump campaign has long believed everyone should.

Most recently, Trump openly mocked Nikki Haley for, um, something I guess by publicly asking her (rhetorically, of course; he would never say it to her face) where her husband is.

Michael Haley, her husband of 18 years, is deployed. That’s where he is, Bone Spurs. In fact, Haley gave a statement on Trump’s remarks during an appearance on CBS’s Face The Nation:

“It’s insulting to military members, it’s insulting to military families, and the part that bothers me is, he continues to do this. This isn’t personal about me and Michael. This is about what it says to every member who sacrifices for us. This is about what it says to every military family who sacrifices alongside of them.”

Loomer, however, decided to double down. In her tiny pea brain, she thought, “Oh, she wants to talk about her husband being deployed? Time to resurrect an old, unproven rumor that she cheated on her husband while he was deployed years ago.”

And that’s exactly what she did. That’s where my frustration comes in. It’s working. I thought Laura Loomer lost all of her influence ages ago, but now there are right-wingers everywhere repeating this nonsense.

Perhaps most disgusting of all is the fact that Loomer is doing this in defense of a man from whom we’ve seen canceled checks from his hush money payoffs to women he slept with while Melania was pregnant.

Imagine being stupid enough that this tween works on you:
