The problem with the women working in the Trump administration is they work for Donald Trump. They work for a guy who literally admitted on tape to sexually assaulting women by grabbing them “by the pussy.”
Why they continue to work for Trump, no one can really explain. Considering some of them have daughters, you would think they’d stand up for their own daughters. Yet, they say nothing and are completely complicit in allowing an alleged sexual deviant to work in the highest office of the land.
However, one woman that works for Trump stepped forward and made some jaw-dropping comments on Face The Nation. Trump easily appointed Nikki Haley as the U.S. Ambassador to the United States. However, he may be regretting that once he hears her comments.
Haley actually said Trump’s accusers should be heard. She began by saying she was proud of the women who have come forward recently with accusations of sexual assault and harassment from men in power.
‘I am incredibly proud of the women who have come forward. I’m proud of their strength. I’m proud of their courage. And I think that the idea that this is happening. I think it will start to bring a conscience to the situation, not just in politics, but in, you know, we’ve seen in Hollywood and in every industry. And I think the time has come.’
That’s when John Dickerson asked her a total “gotcha” question. He asked:
‘Given that consciousness, how do you think people should assess the accusers of the president?’
BOOM. Without hesitation or delay, Haley answered in a way that provides a little glimmer of hope that all the women in Trump’s administration haven’t sold their souls to the orange devil.
‘Well, I mean, you know, the same thing, is women who accuse anyone should be heard. They should be heard, and they should be dealt with.
‘And I think we heard from them prior to the election. And I think any woman who has felt violated or felt mistreated in any way, they have every right to speak up.’

That’s definitely a better answer than what we’ve got from Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway and Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Haley went on and said, ultimately, it is for the people to decide.
‘You know, that’s for the people to decide. I know that he was elected, but women should always feel comfortable coming forward, and we should all be willing to listen.’
The one problem with her statement is the fact that the Republican National Committee could have done something. They could have worked out a way to replace him as the nominee for president. They could have done something, and despite calls from actual Republicans, they didn’t.
It didn’t have to be left up to the people who were blinded by his shiny orange facade. It was, though. That’s how we ended up with a president with allegations of sexual assault from 19 different women.
With the discovery of a secret slush fund that paid out settlements on sexual harassment suits for congressmen with taxpayer dollars and the resignation of senators over allegations of sexual harassment over the years, we still have a president with accusations from 19 different women, and he has no intention of resigning. We’re also probably going to end up with a senator from Alabama with allegations of sexually assaulting minor girls decades ago.
To be sure, Nikki Haley does not get a free pass for her comments. She still continues to work for Trump which is her own way of approving of the president. We also can’t agree with her politics sometimes. However, she finally said something that needed to be heard from within Trump’s own administration. We can only hope other women that work for him will come forward.
