Nikki Haley, the former governor of South Carolina and UN Ambassador, who announced her run or president Tuesday is now facing backlash. From who? “The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg. On “The View” Tuesday Goldberg shared how unhappy she was after watching Haley’s new campaign ad during a segment of the show.

According to Fox Whoopi Goldberg said,
“So Nikki, you know, since you have been asleep all this time, and you just woke up, you’re just finding out that there are things about our country that are not perfect,” Goldberg said, appearing upset. “And for us to pretend that it is and that nothing happened is ridiculous. So you’re not saying anything new.”
“And you of all people should know better because you used to actually have some sanity and knew right from wrong. And then you lost your mind and went in some new direction. So don’t do that,” she added.
Goldberg railed the candidate and Republicans for “not admitting America was “not perfect” and accusing her of no longer knowing “right from wrong.”
