Could Symbolism In Nikki Haley’s “Meet The Press” Necklace Be Wrongly Interpreted Abroad?
IF you watched today’s “Meet The Press“, were observant and have good eyes you would have noticed the pendent on Nikki Haley’s necklace — Nikki (of Indian-origin) being Donald’s Trump’s ‘far from subservient’ Ambassador to the U.N.
If you missed it, here is a picture and you can catch the interview at NBC by clicking on this link.
Yes, that happens to be a symbol of South Carolina — she having been the Governor of South Carolina. That is sweet of her to wear that.
But, that necklace would have had a LOT of FOLKS overseas scratching their heads and WONDERING whether she was trying to send some kind of coded message.
It contains a Crescent Moon!
The Crescent Moon has very major symbology particularly when it comes to the Middle East.
I doubt whether many outside of the U.S. — actually outside of S.C. — appreciate that that is a S.C. symbol.
Didn’t she realize?
Didn’t somebody tell her?
I didn’t watch the whole interview, BUT did Chuck make a comment to explain to his audience that she was not trying to be cute.
