2024 Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley, who was born in the US to Indian parents, has been told by conservative pundit Ann Coulter to “go back” to her country in a rant that also included other offenses.
‘Preposterous’ ‘Bimbo’ from… South Carolina
Born in Bamberg, South Carolina, to an immigrant family from India, Haley was a two-term GOP governor of her home state. That was before joining the Trump administration as the US Ambassador to the United Nations, a post she held from 2017-2018.
Earlier this month, with a rally in Charleston, South Carolina, Nikki Haley became the second Republican to announce a bid for the 2024 presidential nomination.
As a former Trump ally, in 2021, she vowed not to run for president if her former boss decided to do so. However, she recently changed her mind, insisting a new generation of leaders was needed to replace the likes of the elderly Trump, 76, and President Joe Biden, 80.
In a vile tirade on The Mark Simone Show podcast, conservative media personality Ann Coulter went after Haley in what the New York Post, a right-wing newspaper, described as a “racist attack.”
Apparently presuming that the former US ambassador was born abroad, and not in the United States, Coulter suggested that she ought to go back to where she came from.
The conservative pundit seemingly had India in mind because she said people in Nikki Haley’s country were “worshipping cows and rats” and also “starving.”
Coulter’s comments convey ignorance, among other things, as, under the US Constitution, only a person who is born American could run and become elected president of the United States.
Besides making racially insensitive comments and presumptions about Haley, who is a prominent American conservative, Coulter also insulted the former South Carolina governor by calling her a “preposterous creature” and a “bimbo.”
I’m certainly no Nikki Haley fan, but Ann Coulter’s racist, xenophobic rant is off the charts vile and grotesquely unAmerican https://t.co/juGzfmUmYq

“Coulter made several xenophobic comments about Haley…who was born in the U.S. to Indian immigrant parents. ‘Why don't you go back to your own country?’ Coulter said.”
I don’t support Nikki Haley, but this is disgusting behavior by Coulter. https://t.co/BETAyU26Fq

Coulter Angry Over the Confederate Flag
The NYP noted, for the time being, at least, Nikki Haley had not reacted to Ann Coulter’s offenses.
On The Mark Simone Show, the latter told the host she had been outraged by Haley’s decision in 2015, as governor of South Carolina, to take down the Confederate flag from the statehouse in Charleston.
The then-GOP governor made the decision in question after the 2015 mass shooting in a black church in the state’s capital.
During her rant, the conservative pundit said America “is my country and she was “not an American Indian.” Coulter added she didn’t like it when they were taking “down all the monuments.”
Coulter declared further that Nikki Haley’s candidacy reminded her that she should go to India and then demand the destruction of parts of that nation’s history.
The conservative pundit, who rose to fame in the 1990s with anti-Bill Clinton criticism, then wondered why Indians worship cows when they have famines and why there was a temple dedicated to rats there.
Nikki Haley has typically been attacked because of her ethnic background by vile lefties who believe all people of color should be doomed to eternal submission to the Democrat Party.
The woke hypocrites practically exploded with hate – as they do against any non-white conservative and/or Republican – when in 2017, President Trump nominated Haley as his ambassador to the UN.

If you are really upset about actual racism let me point you to Ann Coulter who told Haley to go back to her country. Thoughts, Jonathan? https://t.co/6mPufNC7xZ
