Is Nikki Haley "incredibly proud" that she was accused of having extra-marital affairs with two different men prior to her 2010 election to South Carolina Governor? Did no one inform Ambassador Haley that Trump's accusers were a top news story 24/7 during the campaign and have most certainly been "heard?"

12/11/17, "Nikki Haley, Diplomat,"

Nikki Haley was elected Governor of South Carolina on Nov. 2, 2010, and re-elected in 2014. On November 22, 2016, president-elect Donald Trump nominated Haley to become US Ambassador to the United Nations. When she was confirmed on Jan. 24, 2017, she stepped down from her job as SC Governor.

"Prior to Haley's election, she was accused of having affairs with two different men, Will Folks, former press secretary for then-South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford, and Larry Marchant, a political consultant for Haley's opponent, Andre Bauer. Folks said he had an inappropriate physical relationship with Haley several years prior, and Marchant said he and Haley had a one-time sexual encounter. Haley denied the events, saying that she had been faithful to her husband, Michael Haley. In an interview with Columbia's WVOC radio on June 4, 2010, Haley said that if she were elected governor and the claims against her were validated, she would resign....

During the (2016) presidential race, Haley had not been a loyal supporter of Trump, initially campaigning for Marco Rubio and then endorsing Ted Cruz....

By the end of the contentious (2016) campaign, Haley did vote for Trump in the election and celebrated his victory. "The idea that now we can start to really govern — I have never known what it's like to have a Republican president," she said at a gathering of Republican leaders after the election. "I can tell you that the last five years, Washington has been the hardest part of my job. This is a new day."

On November 22, 2016, president-elect Donald Trump picked Haley to become the United States ambassador to the United Nations. She was the first woman to be named as part of his administration. “Governor Haley has a proven track record of bringing people together regardless of background or party affiliation to move critical policies forward for the betterment of her state and our country,” Trump said in a statement. “She will be a great leader representing us on the world stage.”

In accepting the offer, Haley said that she was “honored that the President-elect has asked me to join his team and serve the country we love.’’

"When the President believes you have a major contribution to make to the welfare of our nation, and to our nation's standing in the world, that is a calling that is important to heed," she said. 

On January 24, 2017, Haley was confirmed as U.N. Ambassador by the Senate, 94-6, and she resigned as governor of South Carolina to serve in her new role....

In December 2017, she forcefully defended President Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, referring to it as the "will of the American people" and something that would "fastball the peace process going forward."

Around the same time, Haley drew attention for her comments about the sexual harassment issues that had ensnared political colleagues back home. Specifically referring to the women who had accused President Trump of sexual misconduct, she said, “They should be heard, and they should be dealt with. ... And I think any woman who has felt violated or felt mistreated in any way, they have every right to speak up.”"

Comment to Ambassador Haley: Perhaps no one told you, but the election was held in Nov. 2016 and Trump won. His accusers were "heard" countless times around the clock during the 2016 campaign. Ms. Haley, most of us consider you an embarrassment and wrote you off years ago as a Deep State sellout.
Added: UN Ambassador Nikki Haley was on CBS Face the Nation 12/10/17 and said she's "incredibly proud" of women in various walks of life who've come forward to say they've been sexually harassed. Haley also said the women who accused President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct “should be heard. Ms. Haley seems to think the 2016 presidential election hasn't happened yet, that it's still campaign season and the presidency is up for grabs. Trump's accusers have not only been "heard," they were treated as a major news story with 24/7 coverage during the 2016 election. The election took place, and 63 million Americans were much more concerned about other matters facing this country and elected Trump president.

"They have been heard, and 63 million voters said time to move on. The accusations I’ve heard about are laughable.

"We heard them. We did not believe them. I seldom believe Nikki Haley.

"They have been heard and I believe they are making money on the deal. They have been promised much more money later when those juries will surely award them some of DJT’s billions. They believe it or at least think the damage to their reputations is worth the attempt.
