Nikki Haley Claims Trump Sent Bird Cage to Her Hotel Room

By now, we all know that the political arena can be just as brutal, if not more so, than some of the most aggressive professional sports. And according to Nikki Haley, Donald Trump is taking cheap shots.

The accusation was levied on Sunday when the former South Carolina governor and UN ambassador claimed she found a bird cage and bag of bird feed waiting for her outside her hotel room. She said it was left to her by the “Trump campaign.”

“After a day of campaigning, this is the message waiting for me outside my hotel room.” Accompanying the comment is an image of the bird cage, feed, and a small note saying “From: Trump Campaign.”

Naturally, Haley also added the hashtags “#PrettyPatheticTryAgain” and “#YouJustMadeMyCaseForMe.”

To understand what this is supposed to mean, you need to know Trump recently referred to Haley as “Birdbrain” when describing her performance during the last GOP debate, which took place last Wednesday and Trump did not attend.

He wrote on his Truth Social account that “MAGA, or I, will never go for Birdbrain Nikki Haley. No loyalty, plenty of lies.”

And then, just days later, a bird cage and feed end up waiting for Haley outside her hotel room…

You have to admit, it’s at least a little comical.

Now, of course, it may be the case that Trump didn’t really have anything to do with the birdcage or how it got to Haley.

Based on Trump’s recent remarks about a longshot GOP contender, it’s entirely possible that a Trump fan or even a less professional campaign staffer could have been behind it all, knowing that word of Haley’s gift would undoubtedly be made into news. Hell, even Haley’s campaign could have come up with such a stunt to make Trump seem petty.

Then again, the who behind it isn’t really the point.

Rather, the only real takeaway here is Trump is the reigning champion, and the likes of just about anyone, least of all Haley, are likely to change that.
