In an attempt to actually do the right thing, NY Times author Bari Weiss lost me at the title – “The Slut-Shaming of Nikki Haley“. The article does a fairly good job in describing what the author of the fiction novel, “Fire and Fury” Michael Wolff, has said about Nikki Haley “sleeping her way to the top”.
But when the woman in question is Nikki Haley, the United Nations ambassador appointed by President Trump, and the evidence-free detail is being spread gleefully by Michael Wolff, the author of “Fire and Fury”? Yeah, not so much.
The problem is the title is clearly an attempt to get clicks because “slut-shaming” implies she is actually a slut and you are shaming her. So really, Bari Weiss is essentially calling Nikki Haley a slut.
Ms. Haley told Politico:
“At every point in my life, I’ve noticed that if you speak your mind and you’re strong about it and you say what you believe, there is a small percentage of people that resent that and the way they deal with it is to try and throw arrows, lies or not.”
