NATION: SCGOP Rallies Behind Ambassador Nikki Haley, saying no politics in music
Columbia - South Carolina Republican Party Executive Director Hope Walker released the following statement today regarding the promotion of Michael Wolff's book "Fire and Furry" during the Grammy's last night - a book that the GOP says is known to contain falsehoods and slanderous accusations against Ambassador Nikki Haley and others:
"We are grateful to see so many people across the country stand with Ambassador Haley, and stand up for strong women who deserve better than false attacks from Michael Wolff, and hear them call his book exactly what it is: 'trash.' What we haven't heard is Democrats in South Carolina do the same.
"I respect our Democratic friends across the aisle, but now that Hillary Clinton has re-emerged to promote Michael Wolff’s book on the Grammy’s, it’s time for the people of South Carolina to hear from James Smith, Phil Nobel, Archie Parnell and Mary Geren about whether respect for strong women in leadership is just another partisan talking point for South Carolina Democrats."
Haley tweeted on Sunday:
“I have always loved the Grammys but to have artists read the Fire and Fury book killed it. Don’t ruin great music with trash. Some of us love music without the politics thrown in it.”
