The ambitious Governor from South Carolina slighted Trump and the other "angry voices" of her party, and now the hard right is out for her scalp, almost literally.

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley defended her response to Tuesday’s State of the Union, confirming to TODAY’s Matt Lauer she was referring to Donald Trump as one of the “angriest voices” she mentioned.

“Mr. Trump has definitely contributed to what I think is just irresponsible talk,” she told Matt in an interview Wednesday.

Haley angered some conservative pundits with her response to Obama’s address by seemingly saving her sharpest criticism for those in her own party, particularly those running for the White House. While never mentioning anyone by name, she urged Republican candidates to tone down divisive rhetoric and urged Americans to resist “the siren call of the angriest voices.”

Haley said while Trump was “one of them,” others have contributed to the vitriol.
