Nikki Haley denies any Trump Tryst

heri_cles

Author Wolff did not actually accuse Haley of a tryst with Trump.

From "Fire and Fury"

"By October, many on the president’s staff took particular notice of one
of the few remaining Trump opportunists: Nikki Haley, the UN
ambassador. Haley — 'as ambitious as Lucifer' in the characterization of
one member of the senior staff — had concluded that Trump’s tenure
would last, at best, a single term, and that she, with requisite
submission, could be his heir apparent. Haley had courted and befriended
Ivanka, and Ivanka had brought her into the family circle, where she
had become a particular focus of Trump’s attention, and he of hers.

The president had been spending a notable amount of private time with
Haley on Air Force One, the presidential airplane, and was seen to be
grooming her for a national political future. Haley, who was much more
of a traditional Republican, one with a pronounced moderate streak — a
type increasingly known as a Jarvanka (Jared-Ivanka) Republican — was,
evident to many, being mentored in Trumpian ways. The danger here,
offered one senior Trumper, 'is that she is so much smarter than him.'"

==========================================

So Haley responds to speculation that some had that the she might have had some sexual encounter with Trump as follows:

“It is absolutely not true,” Haley said
in an interview with Politico, regarding speculation that Wolff was
referring to her when describing the US president’s alleged lover.

She said Wolff had made a basic factual error in his book, when he
wrote that “the president had been spending a notable amount of private
time with Haley on Air Force One”. “I have literally been on Air Force One once and there were several people in the room when I was there,” Haley said.

=======

Wolff, when interviewed last night by Lawrence O'Donnell, made it clear that he was not accusing Haley or anyone by name, and that he stands by what is in his book. As far as Haley's comments, they are too easy to pick apart which makes me start to think, maybe there is something to the rumor. She was only on Air Force One once and there were people in the room ? Once is enough to get initiated into Trump's mile high club and not enough to dispel the assertion that she was growing close to tRump. But anyway, I doubt tRump would be interested in her.... not nearly young enough or attractive enough for his taste.

Buying into the nonsense that Nikki Haley is having an affair with Trump is no different than buying into the story that Mueller is complicit in some sort of LW plot to overthrow Trump..............just a bunch of BS meant to stoke the base.

I don't think Trump was attracted to her physically, but I do think there is something to what Wolff actually wrote about Haley's ambition and her desire to be close to the tRump clan, and it is almost as distasteful.

I would not bet my money that it has not happened. After watching his entire cabinet several times praising him in a way I have never seen grown men and women do to anyone. At this point I will not say she is not praying at his alter and do whatever he wants. He has demonstrated he can make these people around him lick his boots. They will sell their dignity, their soul to be in the WH.

To your point, I recall Haley's mafia-style preemptive threat to the UN
before the vote to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. "The president will be watching this vote carefully and has requested I
report back on those countries who voted against us. We will take note
of each and every vote on this issue. We will be taking names

Trump has a way of demanding and compelling loyalty from his inner circle, or bargaining for it. Haley is just another one who is sucking up to Donald Trumpleone.

No I cannot imagine. I would be physically. Maybe she just smacked him over the head with the Time magazine. Didn't Stormy say something about he was into that stuff? Maybe her ambition she felt she could go that far.

I don't see any evidence to support this. Even though I don't like her politics and I think exposure to Trump has made her worse I refuse to buy into tabloid conjecture.

"Ambitious as Lucifer" sounds about right to me. She's got her eyes set a lot higher than where she is.

ETA clarity.

I refuse to buy into tabloid conjecture.

Readers of Wolff's book (not a tabloid) were left to conjecture and some, after reading what had been reported, and seeing how Haley has licked tRump's bootstraps, surmised that she might have serviced tRump's perpetual sexual appetite.

But Wolff never stated that tRump had sex with Haley, only that she is as ambitious as Lucifer, which is beyond mere conjecture.

Now, if Ms. Haleyry was tRump's type (at least 10 years younger, blonde and attractive) you can bet that he would not rule her out, or she him.. Remember tRump denying Jessica Leeds accusation of sexual assault based on her appearance? "I don't think so."

If Haley was a Democrat, tRump would likely be mocking her homely appearance as he did with Ted Cruz wife, Carly Fiorina, Hillary and others.

Sorry, Chase. I know Haley is your dream candidate for Pres.

Not at all HerI, I see her as extremely intelligent and capable but she is way too much of a hawk for me. But this conjecture and gossip about Haley just makes Dems look as small as some of the carp on the right.

There is way enough real stuff out there to lay on Trump. Leave this carp on the tabloid shelves where it belongs.

For the record, I categorically deny any claims that I had a tryst (or two) with Donald J Trump.

I signed no non-disclosure agreement, received no compensation for my silence.

I find it hard to believe that Haley or any other smart, attractive woman, would subject herself to sleeping with such a repulsuve, obnoxious, narcissistic man as Trump.

Yes, dockside, but apparently Haley voted for Mr. Trump, and accepted an appointment in his cabinet, so all bets are off when it comes to "smart" republican women.

I do find it distasteful that if a passably attractive woman is on the premises, it should be taken for granted that she is, of course, sleeping with the "boss."

And I happen to think Haley is an attractive and stylish woman.

What I do find amazing though is the mind-meld the two achieved leading to Haley addressing (I forget where--somewhere out of our country, probably the UN) the globe in language and tone and belligerence that made her sound exactly like a robot mouthing Trump's bully style and content.

Haley's @ss kissing fits in with Wolff's reporting which allegedly is sourced from inside the White House.

Seriously, there need not be sex involved to curry favor w/ one's boss. There are many other ways to be sycophantic...

I don't believe Haley would do this, despite observing that she is ambitious. She is capable of strong pretense, of verbally "sucking up" to the bully, but she has too much common sense to demean herself is that manner, in my view. She is not his type and she knows it and he knows it.

Then why did she accept the appointment to be UN Ambassador?

I don't think she has a lick of sense

Nothing physically intimate between them. It's such a ludicrous idea. She has a plan and working on it. I find that sensible. Do not have an issue with her target. Her plan, however, is defective.

@ 'as ambitious as Lucifer' - love some of Wolff's descriptions. This fits her perfectly.

@ 'she, with requisite submission, could be his heir apparent' - yup - this seems to be her plan. Her submission comes in the form of her words. Nothing more.

I agree with Mom. I don’t admire her at all. She’s a trump toady the same as the others. I could not care less if she has sex with trump or not. After trump, she most directly contributes to our loss of being seen as a country with integrity on the world stage. I can’t even imagine voting for trump as a woman much less being his mouthpiece for his ignorant, cruel and careless policies and verbiage. Good grief.

FWIW, I thought it was interesting how, after this topic has surfaced on the media radar, she was quick to tweet her displeasure over that Grammy Awards segment and it got coverage. Toady is a good word, I think...
