Fiorina Slams Haley: SOTU Response Hit ‘Wrong Note’ by Saying GOP Shares Blame with Obama
South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley‘s Republican response to President Obama‘s State of the Union address turned heads, particularly with two prominent features of her speech Wednesday night.
Haley not only slammed Donald Trump by calling out his immigration talking points, but as USA Today noted, she also said that the GOP shares responsibility with President Obama too for immigration reform and the other issues and political divisions facing America.
Today, Carly Fiorina was asked for her thoughts on Haley by radio host Mike Gallagher, and neither of them apparently appreciated the governor’s casting of blame on both sides of the aisle.
“I think you’re correct that it was the wrong note,” Fiorina said, adding that “President Obama tried to tell us that everything’s okay, that things are getting better, and the vast majority of Americans know…it’s not okay.”
From there, Fiorina pivoted toward Obama’s attempt to reassure the country that things aren’t as bad as they seem. She also elaborated that she’s against the establishment and a political elite for both parties, and that a career politician from either side will not be able to resolve the nation’s issues.
“I got out there and talk everyday to Americans that it is time to take our country back, and our government back, and our future back,” Fiorina said.
