Nicolle Wallace Says We Need Cult Experts to Understand Why Nikki Haley Endorsed Donald Trump

A few months ago, Nikki Haley and Donald Trump were locked in a battle for the Republican nomination. At this point, she was more than happy to call out the myriad reasons he was unqualified to be President. At one point, Trump mocked Haley's deployed soldier husband for not being with her on the campaign trail. 

Despite pledging not to support him, Haley surprised no one today by announcing that she would be voting for Trump. Nicolle Wallace and Vaughn Hilyard discussed her decision on Wednesday night. 

Hilyard reported among other things, "His allies pushed extramarital fair rumors about her. This is somebody who suggested that she may not even be eligible to run for president because her parents are immigrants. And today, her announcing she’s going to vote for Donald Trump is just, I think, another chapter in something that we’ve already lived out with the likes of Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio eight years ago. She did raise her hand in that Republican debate and said that she would vote for a convicted felon if Donald Trump was found guilty. And today, as evidence that she’s sticking to her word."

Wallace responded, "We need shrinks and cult experts to explain this because what you’re reporting doesn’t make a lick of sense to me, and it’s so recent. I mean, J.D. Vance, in 2015, said something similar. But for her and her husband to both have been feuding publicly with him just days and weeks before endorsing him is inexplicable to me at a human level."
