Leslie Marshall, a liberal commentator for Fox News, had a racist tweet sent out from her Twitter account — and now she’s backtracking.

During the Republican National Convention on Monday night, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley delivered a powerful speech.

At one point, Haley said that the United States is “not a racist country.”

In response, Marshall’s account tweeted out “says a white woman,” referring to Haley.

Haley, of course, is Indian. She was born to two Indian immigrants.

Townhall reports:

Former South Carolina Governor and U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley delivered remarks at the Republican National Convention last night.

In her remarks, she declared that the United States wasn’t a racist nation.

Leslie Marshall, a liberal commentator for Fox News, tweeted “says a white woman.”

Now, since fact-checking has become the latest front in which the Left tries to silence conservatives, let’s render a verdict here: It’s a ridiculous and gross smear. It’s also 100 percent false.

Haley was born Nimrata Nikki Randhawa. She’s the daughter of Ajit Singh Randhawa and Raj Kaur Randhaw, who immigrated her from India. So, I guess she’s a white…Indian? No, she’s a person of color. How can you not know this?

Marshall deleted the tweet, but the Internet is forever.

She also said, “One of my interns, posted a tweet about Nikki Hailey [sic] that was untrue. He didn’t know of her ancestry. It was brought to my attention, so I took it down immediately. My in-laws know Nikki parents, my husband’s Indian. Sorry to disappoint the haters time to move on folks.”
