Nikki Haley wastes no time claiming RNC may become Trump’s ‘piggy bank’ if he is party’s nominee

Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley reacted to the obscene $354 million penalty levied against former President Donald J. Trump by leftist Judge Arthur Engoron in the New York City civil fraud case by claiming that he’d use the RNC as a “piggy bank” to pay his legal bills.

The former South Carolina Governor and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, who has no realistic chance of winning the 2024 nomination barring Trump’s disqualification, death or imprisonment, appeared on CNN where she parroted Democrat talking points after news of Friday’s stunning capper of the case brought against the GOP frontrunner by New York Attorney General Letitia James.

Haley, who has refused to be a team player by dropping out so the GOP can unify against Joe Biden, seems content to act as a wrecking ball for as long as her deep-pocketed donors are willing to keep her longshot campaign afloat. And like other anti-Trump propaganda outlets, CNN is always happy to have her.

Asked by host Kaitlan Collins for her take on the “damning” ruling, the queen of cringe responded with a wild conspiracy theory of how Trump will use the RNC to subsidize his legal fees, the result of the coordinated and sustained lawfare onslaught against him in multiple Democrat-controlled jurisdictions and that his choice of his daughter-in-law Lara Trump is proof of it.

“My biggest issue is, I don’t want the RNC to become, you know, his legal defense fund,” Haley said. “I don’t want the RNC to become his piggy bank for his personal court cases. We’ve already seen him spend $50 million worth of campaign contributions towards his personal court cases.”

“Now, we see him trying to get control of the RNC so that he can continue not to have to pay his own legal fees,” she continued, spewing speculation without an iota of evidence.

“The problem is that doesn’t help us win any seats in the House, in the Senate or anything else if the RNC is all focused on his legal fees. The RNC’s practically broke now as it is, and so this is a bigger issue for the Republican Party…,” she added, noting the dismal state of the RNC which has been run into the rocks under the leadership of Mitt Romney’s niece Ronna McDaniel.

After claiming that she “hasn’t paid attention” to the myriad lawsuits against Trump, Haley added, “He’s made the co-chair his daughter-in-law. He’s made his campaign manager the director of operations. He’s trying to control the RNC after the fact that he tried to get me out of the race so that he could be the presumptive nominee.”

“All of that is so that he has an arm to pay his legal fees,” she said, another remark that could end up in an ad for the Biden-Harris campaign like many of her other ones have. “That’s the fear that every Republican should have because we won’t win anything if he goes down that path.”

Haley has continued to claim that she alone will be able to beat Biden, citing a cherry-picked collection of polls but always neglecting to mention that she is disliked and distrusted by Trump’s base, most of whom would never vote for her.

“Watched Birdbrain do an interview yesterday, and she has become a crazed lunatic, totally unhinged. Tricky Nikki is suffering from a terminal disease, Trump Derangement Syndrome. Not a pretty thing to watch!” Trump wrote on Truth Social earlier this week, commenting on another Haley media appearance.
