News that President Donald Trump’s United Nations ambassador, Nikki Haley called it quits is a breath of fresh air for many. The bombastic brunette who shared the jeers heaped on the American president during his address before the U.N. General Assembly recently will remain in her post until the end of the year, unfortunately. But the sane people of Earth get all excited, we’d best wait for the other foot to fall.
Nikki Haley announced that she and Trump had made America respected, at the moment of her surprise resignation a few days ago. Seated next to President Trump, the former South Carolina governor said; “Countries may not like what we do, but they respect what we do.” But for most of us, U.S. policy causes amazement, fear, and outright laughter since Trump took office. How can anyone ever forget the room bursting into laughter when Trump told the world he had accomplished more than any other president in history? With America’s global image in the toilet, the Washington clown show just seems unending. But wait, why did Haley quit?
CNN, if you can ever believe them, says Haley is jumping ship just in the nick of time. The news network says Haley is leaving with “her stature elevated and political prospects brightened.” The world’s number one “Fake News” outlet went on to position Haley as a top candidate for president, possibly in the next election. Boy, then we’ll be beloved by all the world, now won’t we? A show of CNN clumsiness and only slightly veiled intent can be seen in this statement:
“Haley became a face of Trump’s “America First” policy, pushing, for instance, plans to overhaul the UN that the President enthusiastically backed — but she also was able to ensure that she never became defined by the doctrine.”
Really now? The woman who stood up and threatened the world with arm twisting and worse at the UN, the lunatic cheerleader of war over Syria, and the person who claimed the US and Russia would “never” be friends is not defined by her brash and stupid demeanor? The only thing scarier than Trump naming somebody dumber than Nikki Haley for the UN post is the idea of Haley as president.
Quartz says the UN is horrified by the prospect of Donald Trump’s next ambassador, but judging from CNN’s love affair with Haley, I’m considering holing up in a cave in 2020. As for worry over who will replace Haley at the UN, all I can say is, it doesn’t matter. Trump will still be president, and whomever he sends will be hated for whatever world is splitting policies moron number 2 evangelizes there.
Haley for president? President Nikki Haley? Nikki Haley, Commander in Chief? Good God, I was beginning to think Trump was a lunatic White House resident. Can you imagine her taking off her high heel shoe and banging it on the podium like the Soviet Union’s Nikita Khrushchev did way back when? Wait! Maybe that’s it. The United States wants to switch roles with the Khrushchev era USSR. US missiles in Romania and maybe Ukraine, a crisis between superpowers, I may be onto something here. Nikki Nikita Haley for president. Who can say I am wrong after what we’ve witnessed the last few months?
Technocrat Jeff Bezos’ Washington Post trumpets Haley too with “A rising star’: Haley poses a potential threat to Trump even if she doesn’t run in 2020.” Authors Ashley Parker and Philip Rucker fawn over the ambassador too much when they claim she “mixes homespun Southern charm with hard-boiled political savvy.” Not only does this butt kissing from WaPo scare me to death, it proves neither writer has a clue about what southern charm, for Haley is anything but a southern belle.
The world should be scared, very scared.
