So, some background. The woman in this video is Nikki Haley, who’s a state legislator in South Carolina. She’s running for the Republican gubernatorial nomination, and she’s currently leading the polls. Essentially, she was on cruise control, until a blogger who worked for her, Will Folks, claimed the two had an affair.
Obviously, the story causes a firestorm. And so, she decides to have an impromptu press conference to address the story.
Watch how she handles herself. I was blown away. She’s a consummate pro. This should be Exhibit 1 in how to hold a political crisis press conference.
