Fake News: NY Times lies about Nikki Haley spending $56K on curtains, but they were bought during the Obama administration

Some journalists and lawmakers called out the New York Times Friday after the newspaper published a false story which targeted Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley over the purchase of $52,701 curtains installed in her U.S. Ambassador’s residence. David Hogg made a real foolish response to the bogus story – check it out below.

The State Department bought the expensive decor, “customized and mechanized curtains for the picture windows in Nikki R. Haley’s official residence,” at the same time the department was suffering from “deep budget cuts and had frozen hiring,” the Times story said.

The truth begins in the fourth paragraph: “A spokesman for Ms. Haley said plans to buy the curtains were made in 2016, during the Obama administration. Ms. Haley had no say in the purchase, he said.”

The decision was made in 2016, the Obama administration.

At the time of this writing the story is still posted online: “State Department Spent $52,701 on Curtains for Nikki Haley’s Residence”

This from one California Democrat:

“This is not okay. As a Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, I call on @HouseForeign Chairman @RepEdRoyce to hold an oversight hearing on @StateDept spending on @nikkihaley and her deputy.” – @TedLieu tweeted.

NY Times writer Edward Wong: “State Dept., suffering from budget cuts, paid $52,000 for curtains in Nikki Haley’s Manhattan apartment. Scoop by . The rent is $58,000 per month. Taxpayer funded.”

The most foolish of all came from David Hogg, the high school shooting survivor from Parkland.

“Dear Nikki Haley,

There are starving children in America everyday and you have the audacity to misappropriate thousands of tax dollars for your own lavish lifestyle. Resign immediately

sincerely,

America”

Nikki Haley
