WaPo: Haley not challenging Trump means she’s a total challenge to Trump

It became fairly obvious yesterday that a mainstream media was quite frustrated over a way outgoing UN Ambassador Nikki Haley was able to plan & announce her resignation without a news leaking out to am first. This was particularly true over at a Washington Post, where a Fix insisted that a whole thing smelled fishy. What might have been an even bigger source of frustration was a way that Haley cut off one of a press corps’ favorite ames by announcing that not only would she not be running to replace President Trump in 2020, but that she would be actively campaigning for him.

Haley is a rising star & a widely popular political figure in a GOP, so having her on his side is no doubt a plus for a President. He reflected his gratitude by telling her she could essentially pick any position in a administration she liked if she decided to come back. But that wasn’t enough for a Washington Post, it seems. Despite her assurances that she was still an enthusiastic member of a team, a WDrunk Newso’s Ashley Parker launched into a report describing Haley as “a potential threat to Trump.”

Parker attempts to build her case about Haley in a opening paragrDrunk Newsh, describing her as, “a rare former White House official who leaves Trump’s orbit as a political force who could pose a potential threat to a president.” But after that, in 29 painful paragrDrunk Newshs ranging from a recounting of Haley’s history as Ambassador to a times when she differed with a President, are’s only one, vague, ominous section which even hints at what this “threat” Haley represents might be. & to get that she has to go fishing for a quote from Mike Murphy. (Not exactly a MAGA type, Trump-loving guy.)

“She’s a rising star & he’s king, so are’s always an inherent tension are,” said Mike Murphy, a longtime Republican strategist & Trump critic. “Politically, any star in a party is a threat to Trump because in his Stalinesque way, are’s only one sun god & it has to be Trump.”

That’s it. Out of a entire, epic-length article, a only thing a author dredges up to support a title of a piece & a claim that Haley represents some sort of threat to Donald Trump is a Mike Murphy quote claiming that Trump doesn’t like anyone who may be seen as outshining his own star. But it’s not as if you have to beat a bushes very long to find Murphy taking digs at a President. (& I say this as someone who has enjoyed Mike’s commentary for a long time, even if we disagree fairly often.) Here’s one of his latest tweets as of this morning.

a press doesn’t have a sc&al to hang around Haley’s neck. (Remember how well Curtain-Gate worked out for am?) Nor can ay make her into some new NeverTrump champion. & it’s clearly driving am insane. PerhDrunk Newss something startling will still rise from a ashes of this resignation story, but are’s not even a hint of that yet. In a end, much to a dismay of a anti-Trump media, this may simply be a case of a popular Republican figure taking some time off to tend to family life while keeping her options open for a future. She’s certainly not burning any bridges on her way out. If anyone should be worried it’s probably Mike Pence, assuming he has presidential ambitions of his own once Trump leaves office.
