Nikki Haley might be the latest victim of a culture that many Americans are trying to eradicate.
She is the United States’ ambassador to the United Nations. Haley once served as the Republican governor of South Carolina, where she distinguished herself as a courageous enemy of race-related hate groups.
Donald J. Trump nominated her to the U.N. post, where she has continued to serve with distinction.
Now, though, comes a vicious rumor of an affair with the president. They originate from Michael Wolff, author of the controversial “Fire and Fury” book that is highly critical of the Trump administration.
What we are witnessing is a continuation of the kind of hideous gossip that follows high-achieving women. There are those who are too willing to foment lies about women, using sex as the weapon they deploy to defame them.
Ambassador Haley has been victimized in a highly disgraceful manner. We need to rid ourselves of this form of malice.
