I have tons of AD ideas... just wish I knew who I can share them with!

Another One Bites The Dust! The classic Queen song should be used in an ad to remind EVERYONE what the former Never Trumpers stated before they became groveling boot lickers vying for VP. It’s always better to show people than tell them. Most people can agree, If you stand for nothing, you fall for everything!

BRILLIANT! I LOVE that idea! RVAT/Sarah Longwell - I think Nancy wrote your next ad (assuming you can get use rights of that song). :-D

Haley's calculus makes no sense.

She will never have a place in the MAGA party. And she's incinerated her slim chance as an independent. She's not a moron or flamboyantly sociopathic. There's no logical upside to her announcement, unless some mob boss made her an offer she couldn't refuse.

The office of POTUS is fundamentally a test of character. Nikki Haley has proven herself unworthy of the Oval Office - ever.

Trump, like Putin and other strongmen and mafia dons, hate not their enemies but ‘traitors’ - that is why Liz Cheney, Mitt Romney, Adam Kinzinger et alia are regarded as traitors. To prove she’s not a traitor but an ally, Nikki will have to do a lot more to prove her loyalty. I suspect she will devote the next few months to demonstrating her loyalty so that all will be forgiven.

Haley is spineless, just like all the others who have bent the knee to one of the most loathsome people in American politics today. Republican = craven

EXCELLENT POINT

Best line ever: You might have butter in your fridge you bought when Haley was talking like this…

Welcome comic relief in the sea of filth that is Trump and everyone associated with him.

It takes me want to vomit because at age 57, I cast my first vote for a Republican when I pulled the lever for Nikki in the GA GOP primary. Had I known she was gonna endorse that fat felonious drag queen, I wouldn't have done it.

Nikki Haley’s integrity and ambition were drowning and she could only save one…

Haley is as spineless as Cruz, Graham, Scott, Rubio, and the other band of supplicants who will do anything to be in the good graces of the orange man.

And yet they'd throw him under the bus in a heartbeat if he had just 10% less public support. Like him, they are shameless opportunists who only care about themselves.

Sad, but not unsurprising about Nikki on many levels, but what's her "quid pro quo"? What did she get out of it? What did Trump do to "win her (or "HER" people) over". That's even sadder that she capitulated and apparently got NOTHING out of it.

At least (SO FAR ANYWAY) she doesn't have some excuse about the threats of EVs, gas stoves and cancel culture (looking at you Bill Barr).

And potentially shame on Biden if he didn't do SOMETHING to try to win Haley over.

What was Biden going to do to try to win Haley over? Anyone who has paid attention to her knew she was going to bend the knee to the temper tantrum tyrant. That's who she has always been. Biden is courting her voters who I hope are disgusted with her.

This is as surprising to me the fact that Trump will tell a lie today. Nikki must be dizzy from her flip-flops. One thing that is consistent about Nikki is her unbridled ambition. Unlike you former Republicans, I never had one moment in which I thought she would show some backbone and integrity.

Pat - I didn't mean to imply you were. But most of the Bulwarkers are.

for the record I'm not a former or current republican. too much self respect. :).

Haley claims she is supporting Trump for reasons that she herself claimed Trump failed at. Talk about capitulation. I am sorry I voted for her.

Trikki, ikki, Nikki proves yet again that she is ethically, morally and intellectually bankrupt. I’ve never liked or respected her and this trump ass kissing is truly despicable. She can also kiss her political career good bye and if by some miracle trump’s head explodes or he goes to prison, who would vote for such an anti-choice, shape shifting, hypocritical coward?

I am glad Mr. Kristol is still on vacation. He just couldn't give up on her. And then she goes and does this.

Yet another thinly veiled audition for VP slot. True, sleaze in heels is a bit refreshing this time around albeit just more of the same duplicity we have all come to expect. The worst insult of it is her taking the citizenry as rubes. The poor desperate thing.

Yeah, I don't buy she's auditioning for VP. She thinks, wrongly, that this is what she needs to do to be a presidential candidate in 2028.

Expand full comment

Too bad she isn't smart enough to realize that if trump wins, there will be no presidential election in 2028.

Unless she pulls the US out of NATO or advocates kicking the UN out of NY, I doubt the Snake will favor her with anything in his administration. She called him too many names, and he's the only one who can do that. She really, really doesn't understand him at all. He doesn't forget or forgive. She lost any cred she had with anyone to gain nothing.

He's not a snake, he's a rat. That comes from a quote in the finale of the first season of "Survivor" in 2000. I soon tired of Reality TV, so I never watched "The Apprentice." Having known of him for 20 years prior I would not have watched it even if I were still into that genre.
