Haley's "Courageous" Break With Trump Ends After Less Than One Month

When it came out that Nikki Haley was "breaking" with Trump, publicly saying "we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again," I observed that this seeming profile in courage was anything but for a host of reasons. Chief among them: Haley could and would always come groveling back to Trump if it seemed like he was holding onto his position as a GOP power broker. 

Still, even I thought she'd take more than a month to complete the journey:
Former United States Ambassador the the United Nations Nikki Haley on Monday praised former President Trump over his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) the day before, after sharply criticizing him last month for his rhetoric and actions ahead of the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol.

“Strong speech by President Trump about the winning policies of his administration and what the party needs to unite behind moving forward. The liberal media wants a GOP civil war. Not gonna happen,” Haley wrote on Twitter.

What an utter sleazeball.

CCRAP Convention proves that the far right is fed and nurtured by the Haleys, Cruzs, Rubios, and Gaetzs who really are there to feed their own egos. The more absurdist, the more boorish, the better the crowd likes it and the more the fawning right wing media uses it to promote the Neo Nazi and fascist CULT culture we are seeing emerge throughout the world as these authoritarian regimes continue to pop up. They are kidding themselves that the special purple Kool Aid isn't eating and feasting on the little bit of remaining brains that control the wants of the incessant selfie taking at the shrine of the gilded plastic Trump on display in the arena.

"What an utter sleazeball."

That is so unfair. She's much further on in the process of putrefaction than a sleazeball, which is still at least solid. She's a sleaze bucket. Her sleaze will change shape to fill any handy vessel. Please don't insult an entire state of matter by calling her a solid.
