“The View” co-host Sunny Hostin accused Nikki Haley of not leaning into her heritage because she goes by her middle name — Nikki.
Guest and political pundit Alyssa Farah Griffin was asked who might successfully challenge Donald Trump in 2024. Griffin mentioned Nikki Haley as a potential candidate, but Hostin jumped in and slammed the notion.
According to Hostin, Nikki is a “chameleon” who does not “lean into” her heritage enough to run for president.
“Stu Does America” host Stu Burguiere explained that Nikki’s heritage had been a “central part” of Nikki’s story. A story that Stu believes would be hailed by the ladies of “The View” as inspirational” if Nikki wasn’t conservative. Haley’s given name is Nimrata Nikki.
Nikki clapped back on Twitter: “Thanks for your concern, @Sunny. It’s racist of you to judge my name. Nikki is an Indian name on my birth certificate–and I’m proud of that. What’s sad is the left’s hypocrisy towards conservative minorities. By the way, last I checked, Sunny isn’t your birth name….”
