Radio host Charlamagne Tha God argued that the GOP should ‘clear the field’ for Nikki Haley – even ‘getting rid of Trump’ – following the second Republican presidential primary debate.
The media personality heaped praise on the former U.N. ambassador during Thursday’s episode of The Breakfast Club, a morning show he co-hosts with radio star DJ Envy.
The duo welcomed public speaker Tezlyn Figaro as a guest. Figaro curates the show’s Front-Page News segment, a daily roundup of top headlines.
Figaro lauded Haley for sticking to policy during the debate, but Charlamagne went further, telling his roughly 4 million listeners: ‘GOP should clear the field, get rid of everybody, including Trump, and let Nikki Haley be the GOP candidate.’
Earlier this month, Charlamagne commended Haley when she expressed her staunch support of term limits.

The former U.N. ambassador drew attention for her firey performance, taking turns at fellow candidates Tim Scott and Vivek Ramaswamy
She referred to the Senate as ‘the most privileged nursing home in the country’ while speaking to Fox News.
‘I mean, Mitch McConnell has done some great things, and he deserves credit,’ she said a day after the Republican majority leader suffered a his second freeze while talking to reporters. ‘But you have to know when to leave.’
Charlamagne insisted that Haley was ‘absolutely right,’ claiming: ‘She ain’t say one damn thing wrong.
‘I’ll stop her when she stops telling the truth. We need term limits. And, you know, if you are going to stay in, you definitely need mental competency tests over the age of whatever.’
He added: ‘And you got Senator Feinstein, 90 years old, she’s faced multiple health setbacks, didn’t know what she was voting on, you know, Nancy Pelosi is 83, Donald Trump is 77, Biden is 80. It’s like, yeah, we need term limits.’
Haley clashed with other candidates during Wednesday’s debate. A particular target of her ire was fellow South Carolinian Tim Scott.
‘Twelve years, Tim? Where have you been?’ she exclaimed when he referenced his record as senator.
Scott hit back at her, accusing Haley of spending thousands on curtains for the U.N. ambassador’s residence in New York City, a claim she sharply refuted.
‘You are scrabbling, Tim,’ she said.

When asked during one episode of the radio show if he would prefer Biden with dementia over Trump, he described them as ‘two wings on the same bird’
Haley told Senator Scott that he was ‘scrabbling’ and said to Ramaswamy: ‘Every time I hear you, I feel a little bit dumber’
While Trump leads the polls by an enormous margin, Haley ranks third behind Florida governor Ron DeSantis
Haley also jumped on Vivek Ramaswamy when he tried to justify joining TikTok despite concerns about the parent company’s connections to the Chinese government.
She called his responses ‘infuriating’ and declared: ‘Every time I hear you, I feel a little bit dumber for what you say.’
The latest national FiveThirtyEight poll shows Haley averaging 6.3 percent, making her the second runner-up behind Florida governor Ron DeSantis at 13.8 percent.
Still, former President Donald Trump crushes the competition at 54 percent.
On his radio show, Charlamagne shares his views on topics from culture to celebrity news. He also hasn’t shied away from calling out politicians on both sides of the aisle.
During one conversation, co-host DJ Envy raised the possibility of President Joe Biden having dementia.
In response to a question about whether he would prefer Biden with dementia over Donald Trump, Charlamagne said they were ‘two wings on the same bird.’
Earlier this week, he slammed the 46th President for botching LL Cool J’s name and using a ‘racist’ term to refer to the rap legend at an event held in his honor.
