'The View' Host Calls Nikki Haley 'Completely Crass'

 April 29, 2023

Nikki Haley is making a lot of headlines lately, perhaps the most she has enjoyed since officially declaring her intent to pursue the presidency a few weeks ago.

She was on Fox News when she made the assertion that Joe Biden was more likely to wink out than he was to complete a second term in the Oval Office. Haley said:

He’s running again in 2024. I think that we can all be very clear and say as a matter of fact that you vote for Joe Biden you really are counting on a President Harris because the idea that he would make it to 86 years old is not something that I think is likely.

Apart from the obvious headline that Haley thinks Biden could pass away in the next couple of years, was she also indicating that Democrats want Kamala Harris in office but need to find a way to backdoor her in?

ABC legal analyst Sunny Hostin said on ABC's The View that Haley was "completely crass" for suggesting that the man who is already America's oldest president wouldn't make it another four years.

"I just think it’s terrible, because what she really wanted to do was throw a dig at Kamala Harris, she wanted to throw a dig at another woman of color, she wanted to throw a dig at the vice president of the United States, and in doing so, she decided that it was somehow politically expedient to say that he would be dead in six years. First of all, that is completely crass. It’s terrible for his family and for him to say something like that. A real politician, a good politician doesn’t say things like that, and that’s sort of a personal attack, and I think this country suffers from terrible ageism," Hostin said.

"You know, in other countries around the world people, they revere their elders because of the wisdom that comes with the age, and there’s nothing to indicate that there’s anything wrong with Joe Biden up here. There’s nothing to indicate that," she added.
