Yesterday, the New York Times published a piece about the price of Nikki Haley’s curtains in her state department apartment in downtown Manhattan.
The headline: “Nikki Haley’s View of New York Is Priceless. Her Curtains? $52,701.”
Sounds pretty bad right? Spending a ridiculous amount of money on curtains and to top it all off, the rent on the apartment is $58,000 a month, so those curtains cost nearly as much as a month’s rent. Shame on you, Nikki!
But wait…buried in the SAME article is a paragraph stating she had nothing to do with these curtains and that it was actually President Obama who bought them for the apartment.
So then why the misleading headline?
The article goes on to say that at the time the curtains were being ordered, deep cuts were being made and seems to blame Haley for excessive spending on window dressings even though she had nothing to do with it.
Clueless liberals, who didn’t read past the headline and couldn’t even see that the New York Times fact-checked themselves in the article, blasted Haley on Twitter.
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

Taxpayers paid $52,000 for curtains for Haley’s apartment. On the bright side, they go well with Carson’s $31,000 dining room set and Pruitt’s $43,000 soundproof booth. https://t.co/bJChQ6hnYz

Nikki Haley is one more example – following Scott Pruitt, Ben Carson, Tom Price & Steve Mnuchin — of Trump appointees ripping off taxpayers to indulge themselves. Haley's $52,000 on curtains is the average annual salary in the U.S.

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. https://t.co/c2ipX1s79d

Nikki Haley used $52,000 from the State Department to fund new designer curtains in her New York City apartment, which also costs U.S. tax payers $58,000/month…
In other words, YOU are paying towards her $700,000 a year rent for a luxury apartment.#CultureOfCorruption

Y’all need to take this up with Obama.
Misleading headlines like this only feed the “fake news media” cry of Trump supporters and you’d expect better from one of the top newspapers in the country.
