Nikki Haley is a Republican presidential candidate for 2024. She blasted Newsweek after a reporter asked her for a statement about the dress she wore to her daughter’s wedding.
“My name is Gerrard Kaonga and I’m a reporter at Newsweek. I wanted to reach out for comment following a slight backlash after Haley shared images from her daughter’s wedding,” the reporter wrote, according to a screenshot Haley posted on Twitter. “Some have argued Haley should not have worn her dress as it is too close to the bride’s white. Does Nikki Haley have any comment regarding this? Did she and her daughter discuss and decide the dresses they would be wearing ahead of the ceremony? Any comment would be appreciated.”
Haley criticized the outlet when sharing a screenshot of the message: “This is why people don’t trust the media. Liberal ‘journalists’ spend their time harassing conservatives about outfit choices. Grow up, @Newsweek. P.S. The dress was gold.”
