Tapping Tanden burns Bernie-ites and other commentary

Nikki Haley slammed Neera Tanden’s nomination as White House budget director as “deeply concerning,” saying Tanden has “shown bad judgment in the past.”

The former UN Ambassador went after the embattled Tanden for floating conspiracy theories on Twitter about President Trump and Russian interference in the 2016 election, as well as disparaging tweets about GOP senators.

“Tanden has shown bad judgment in the past,” Haley tweeted on Tuesday. “She said that @realDonaldTrump is ‘part of [a] conspiracy against [the] US’ & has a track record of disparaging Rep Senators.

“There’s a saying that ‘personnel is policy,’ which is why Biden’s nomination of Tanden is deeply concerning.”

Tanden, Biden’s choice to run the Office of Management and Budget, scrubbed more than 1,000 tweets from her account since Nov. 1 — including some attacking Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Sen. Susan Collins.

She also spread a baseless theory that Hillary Clinton lost to Trump in 2016 because Russian hackers flipped votes.

Some of Tanden’s tweets are still live.

Haley also spoke out against Tanden, 50, a longtime Clinton adviser and president of the Center for American Progress, in another post.

“Biden’s pick for budget chief is Neera Tanden. Tanden is one of the architects of ObamaCare, has been described as a Clinton loyalist for her years of service to Hillary Clinton & spent years leading a liberal think tank where she oversaw proposals like ‘Medicare Extra for All,’” she tweeted.

Haley, the former Republican governor of South Carolina, stepped down as UN ambassador in 2018.
