Nikki Haley finished in a distant third in Iowa – failing to live up to the supposed “momentum” behind her.
But her bronze medal finish isn’t stopping former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley from claiming the Republican Primary is now a two-person race.
However, Tucker Carlson sees things differently – and he just roasted Haley with a bullet-pointed list of all the reasons she can’t be the 2024 GOP nominee.
Heading into the Iowa Caucus, Nikki Haley’s campaign team, the donor class, and the establishment media had a plan to keep former President Donald Trump from regaining access to the White House.
The media would form up a phony narrative about a sea of momentum behind Trump’s former UN Ambassador that would propel her above Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in the Hawkeye State.
Her assumed second-place finish in Iowa would then give her the credentials to upend Trump in New Hampshire.
From there, she would be able to put on a strong showing in South Carolina – a state where she was once in the state legislature and the Governor.
With three strong showings on her record, she’d be a force in Nevada and on Super Tuesday.
However, DeSantis thwarted Haley’s plans in Iowa.
But that’s not stopping the Democrats’ favorite Republican from acting like Iowa was a great victory – despite less than one out of every five Iowa Republicans voting for her.
Haley is moving on to New Hampshire.
In fact, her entire plan seems to hinge on it.
In the Granite State, she’ll count on Independents and Democrats to prop up her numbers and attempt to coalesce the Never-Trump vote through her relationship with one man – New Hampshire’s establishment Governor, Chris Sununu.
Tucker Carlson is warning conservatives of what’s looming if Sununu gets his way and why patriotic Americans can’t assume Haley is no longer a threat despite the massive rebuke in Iowa.
The former Fox News host spent the bulk of the latest episode of his new show setting the record straight about Haley and her candidacy.
Carlson pointed out that Haley will do better in New Hampshire than Iowa.
The open primary and more moderate voters play to Haley’s strengths.
She’s also spent far more time and money there than her rivals – especially DeSantis.
And she’s in tight with New Hampshire’s establishment Governor Chris Sununu.
But Carlson believes it’s imperative that Republicans unite to defeat Haley.
Namely because she’s not a conservative – according to Carlson, she’s a liberal.
Carlson reported that her campaign has been funded by Democratic mega donor Reid Hoffman.
Hoffman is a Biden supporter, a friend of Jeffrey Epstein, and has funded the E. Jean Carroll lawsuit against Trump.
And Haley gladly accepts his money.
DeSantis and Nikki Haley spar on the border crisis:
“Do not trust Nikki Haley with illegal immigration.”
“That’s like having the fox guard the hen house. She is on tape at the Aspen Institute. She’ll say she didn’t say it. She was chastising conservatives, saying it’s… pic.twitter.com/twA2M544yg

Carlson went on to second DeSantis’ point about Haley being a fox watching the hen house when it comes to the crisis on the U.S. southern border.
As evidence he pointed to her comments at the Aspen Institute – where she said it’s disrespectful to say that illegal aliens who broke the law coming to America are, “criminals.”
Carlson also mentioned Haley’s willingness to virtue signal to placate Black Lives Matters movement leaders who’ve long been exposed for their alleged massive grift.
“Black lives do matter,” Haley said in her “Lessons of the New South” speech back in 2015. “It’s all about working together. We don’t think we get anything done by yelling. We get everything done by communicating. …We will listen to you and work for you and try to bring you together.”
Carlson also isn’t a fan of Haley’s support of a blank check to continue the war in Ukraine – a position Mitch McConnell may like, but doesn’t sit well with the Republican base.
And Carlson concluded by bringing up Haley’s Orwellian policy of forcing people to register to be on social media.
Tucker laid out a clear case of why Haley shouldn’t be the GOP nominee to challenge incumbent President Joe Biden this November.

Carlson and conservatives will find out if voters in New Hampshire agree with him, or Sununu and Haley and give her the momentum the press pretended she had in Iowa after the Granite State Primary goes down tomorrow, January 23rd.
