(TruthAndLiberty.com) – Joy Behar, a co-host on ABC’s “The View,” recently expressed admiration for Nikki Haley, the Republican presidential contender, particularly for her approach in challenging former President Trump. During a discussion on the show, Behar and her colleagues watched a segment of Haley’s speech from a campaign event in North Charleston, S.C., where she criticized Trump for his reaction to his New Hampshire primary win, describing it as a “temper tantrum.”
Behar’s comments stood out on the predominantly progressive talk show when she mentioned, “I like her,” acknowledging her appreciation for Haley’s tactics, despite not fully agreeing with her policy positions. She humorously remarked on Haley’s potential presidency, suggesting it would be preferable to a leader “governing from cellblock 11,” alluding to the legal challenges facing Trump.
Haley, in her critique of Trump, highlighted his “insecurity” and publicly invited him to a debate, positioning herself as his main competitor in the GOP primary race. She raised questions about his viability as a candidate, given his previous electoral loss, and shared her successful fundraising efforts following her speech in New Hampshire.
Despite trailing Trump in the early GOP primary contests, Haley has maintained a combative stance, reminiscent of Chris Christie’s role in previous political dynamics, as noted by Behar. Behar commended Haley for effectively provoking Trump, revealing his vulnerabilities through strategic criticism.
Behar elaborated on Trump’s sensitivity to criticism, suggesting that Haley’s confrontational approach exposes his insecurities. As the primary season progresses, Trump’s focus shifts to upcoming contests in Nevada and South Carolina, Haley’s home state, where the political battle continues to unfold.
