Whoopi Goldberg had a meltdown over former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley kicking off her 2024 presidential run, viciously accusing her of losing her “sanity” by daring to run for the highest office in the land as a Republican despite former President Trump basically controlling the field.

“The View” played a portion of Haley’s campaign announcement video on Tuesday. She is calling for a “new generation” of political leaders to right America’s floundering ship. Trump is the only other Republican so far to declare his candidacy for the presidency in 2024. Haley’s actual announcement is set to take place on Wednesday.
*Editor’s note: John Bolton announced in January 2023 that he will make a run for president as a Republican to stop Trump.
“Some look at our past as evidence that America’s founding principles are bad. They say the promise of freedom is just made up. Some think our ideas are not just wrong but racist and evil. Nothing could be further from the truth,” Haley declares in the video as you see a clip of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) play. “Even on our worst day, we are blessed to live in America.”
After addressing American values, Haley points out in her announcement that Republican presidential candidates have lost the popular vote seven times in the last eight elections.
“That has to change,” she asserts. “It’s time for a new generation of leadership, to rediscover fiscal responsibility, secure our border, and strengthen our country, our pride, and our purpose… You should know this about me, I don’t put up with bullies. And when you kick back, it hurts them more if you’re wearing heels. I’m Nikki Haley, and I’m running for president.”
Get excited! Time for a new generation.

Goldberg evidently sees Haley as a threat to Democrats because she denigrated her despite the fact that Haley would be a minority female candidate for office.
“Since you have been asleep this whole time and you just woke up, you’re just finding out that there are things about our country that are not perfect and for us to pretend that it is and that nothing happened is ridiculous, so you’re not saying anything new,” Goldberg viciously and predictably stated. “And you of all people should know better, you used to actually have some sanity and knew right from wrong and then you lost your mind and went into some new direction, so don’t do that!”
“She’s part of the invasion of the body snatchers,” co-host Joy Behar sneered during the segment. “There are these politicians on the right who now have become mentally crazy.”
Only one host had anything positive to say about Haley. The rest ridiculed her but Israel still loves the former UN ambassador.
Today my good friend @NikkiHaley announced that she is running for President of the United States of America. Nikki is a true friend of Israel. I have no doubt that she will always stand by our side. Likewise, Israel will always be the closest ally of the US. Good luck Nikki! pic.twitter.com/IabvI8w2iu

“I’ve seen her take on dictators straight to their face. In every room I’ve been in with her, she’s the smartest in the room,” Alyssa Farah Griffin said, evoking almost immediate laughter from Goldberg who seems to forget that Haley was absolutely fearless on the floor of the UN.
“That doesn’t say much,” Behar quipped.
Sunny Hostin also jumped in, going after Haley with her claws out, dubbing her “election denier adjacent.”
“I think she’s very much a political grifter and a chameleon and the bar is very low because it’s on the ground,” Hostin sniped before voicing agreement with Behar that the bar is actually “below the ground.”
“I don’t see her as a step up from anything,” Hostin commented.
