Establishment-backed RINO Nikki Haley’s struggling Presidential campaign took another hit.
Haley’s going down in flames as the voting starts.
And Nikki Haley crumbled when faced with one simple question.
Nikki Haley crashed and burned in the Iowa Caucuses, turning in a disappointing third-place finish.
Haley, running as a social liberal to make a big play for the Democrats and liberals who can vote in the New Hampshire Primary, doomed her chances in Evangelical-dominated Iowa.
One exchange with a voter during tele-town hall summed up why Haley struggled in the Hawkeye State.
During the virtual event – a massive blizzard forced Haley and the rest of the campaigns to cancel almost all in-person events in the 48 hours before the caucus – a voter asked Haley what should have been a very simple question.
Can a man become a woman?
Haley launched into a Kamala Harris-style word salad when a simple “no” would have sufficed.
Since Haley’s really campaigning for New Hampshire, she couldn’t alienate the Democrats and liberals she needs to turn out, so Haley claimed people can “live any way they want” once they turn 18.
“There’s been a lot that’s been talked about when it comes to all of these roles and all of these issues. I strongly believe that we should not allow any gender change surgeries to anyone before the age of 18. Period. We, kids now can’t get a tattoo until they’re 18. We shouldn’t have them permanently change their body until they’re 18,” Haley stated. “… After the age of 18, we want to make sure people can live any way they want to live. I don’t think government needs to be in control of anybody’s life. You go live the way you want to live, you should be free to live the way you want to live. And … government and everybody else should stay out of your way.”
“I think that, you know, you always have to believe in freedom and allowing people to live the life the way they want to live, and if that’s how they choose then, you know, I don’t think government should have any say in that. Thank you for that question,” Haley added.
On caucus night, Haley’s 19 percent of the vote was good for third, and she won only one of Iowa’s 99 counties – Johnson – by a single vote after so many Democrats showed up to vote for Haley in the GOP that some precincts ran out of party switch forms.
