'Grow up': Nikki Haley dings Newsweek over dress-related request for comment

Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley blasted Newsweek after a reporter reached out to request a comment related to the dress Haley apparently wore to her daughter's wedding.

"My name is Gerrard Kaonga and I'm a reporter at Newsweek. I wanted to reach out for comment following a slight backlash after Haley shared images from her daughter's wedding," the reporter wrote, according to a screenshot Haley posted on Twitter. "Some have argued Haley should not have worn her dress as it is too close to the bride's white. Does Nikki Haley have any comment regarding this? Did she and her daughter discuss and decide the dresses they would be wearing ahead of the ceremony? Any comment would be appreciated."

Haley criticized the outlet when sharing a screenshot of the message: "This is why people don't trust the media. Liberal 'journalists' spend their time harassing conservatives about outfit choices. Grow up, @Newsweek. P.S. The dress was gold."

On Sunday, Haley tweeted a photo of her family and wrote, "We had the sweetest weekend celebrating Rena and Josh. Thankful for our sweet family and friends who joined us in supporting and celebrating them. Rena and Josh, we could not be more proud of both of you!"

Haley, who previously served as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations during a portion of President Donald Trump's White House tenure, is one of the GOP candidates currently vying for the Republican presidential nomination. She also previously served as governor of South Carolina.

The Republican primary field includes Trump, Haley, Vivek Ramaswamy, Asa Hutchinson, and Larry Elder — political watchers widely expect Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to jump in to the race eventually as well. Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina has announced a presidential exploratory committee.
