Former Obama Admin Official Blames South Carolina Church Shooting On Gov. Nikki Haley’s Defense Of Confederate Flag
Via Washington Times:
A former Obama administration official used breaking news of a mass shooting at a black South Carolina church Wednesday night to blast Gov. Nikki Haley.
Brandon Friedman, former deputy assistant secretary for public affairs at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, tweeted an old Talking Points Memo story on the Republican governor’s defense of flying the Confederate flag.
“In October, Gov. Nikki Haley defended flying the Confederate flag outside the South Carolina statehouse,” Mr. Friedman tweeted, The Blaze reported.
“Do you really think this is the time to push your political agenda?” Twitter user Lawrence B. Jones asked.
“Seriously Friedman — you represent exactly what everybody hates about politics,” wrote another user.
Mr. Friedman exited his post with the administration on June 4, The Blaze reported.
