Utopia Talk / Politics / Nikki Haley Resigns

She told The President six months ago that she wanted to resign effective at the end of the year.

She has done an excellent job and she will be hard to replace.

The only person that I can think of that would be a great replacement would be Condoleezza Rice.

Haley is the disgrace who threatened every country in the U.N. not to condemn our decision to move the embassy in Israel (for absolutely no benefit to us) even though it violated UN resolutions

how dare countries exercise their own opinions under Trump's global rule

I think she knew beforehand that she would not be able to live with the hypocrisy longer than to the end of 2018. That’s why she is quitting. She is ashamed and is not feeling well. She has developed some kind of depression, I believe.

Hot Rod's not amused because Nikki Haley is about 40 years too old for him.

I am not amused because she has done a great job and only the slimiest most left radicals can't see or appreciate that.

"slimiest most left radicals"

Note that in Retard Rod's view, this means anyone who does not agree with 100% of ludicrous delusions.

Not sure about that but it most certainly includes you.

I don't agree with any of your delusions. You are more detached from reality than anyone I have ever encountered.

The question is why now? Obviously after the mid-terms alot of people are going to resign or be fired for quitting.

Human rights victims worldwide found a champion in Nikki Haley who fought for their freedom and human dignity with exemplary courage, eloquence & grace. History will remember her together with other legendary figures as one of the great American ambassadors to the United Nations.

Some key Democrats who have commented say she has done a good job and don't want to see her leave.

"how dare countries exercise their own opinions under Trump's global rule"

and how dare the UN tell any country what city they must put their capital in.

Trump feels he will be unfairly accused of nepotism if he picks Ivanka to replace Nikki... even though no one in the world is more qualified

He is right that he would be accused. The other part probably not so much.

Why would Trump ship off a trusted advisor to the UN? That makes no sense.

doubtful she'd want the job as it would have actual duties... right now she can just do whatever she wants

She dealt with SC's problems and then two years with Iran and NK.

That is eight years of pretty intense activities.


I don't blame her.

What duties?

1. Talk shit about Iran
2. Vote with Israel on everything
3. Engage in unspeakable debauchery at diplomatic parties
4. Repeat next day

it's still a routine

& right now she can sit in on any meeting w/ any world leaders she feels like & has no risk of any failures being public as no one knows what she's doing to begin with

There are nepotism rules that would prevent Ivanka from taking the job, even if she wanted it.

Of course she currently has a routine, it includes dodging protestors at airports and scrubbing her social media of pictures of her kids, cuz immigrants or something.

The meltdown from her appointment would be lulzworthy though.

I've thought about why the early announcement and the same answer comes to mind. approval

Trump has know for a considerable time.

Other than that I'll keep my guesses and additional speculation in the box.

Two years on that job is about average.

Now would be a good time to resign if she was hoping to run for office in 2020, no idea for what though.

I'm not sure I buy the approval angle, it's not like she's rubbing shoulders with a lot of Manhattan socialites in SC.

Appointment approval and time for Trump to choose a replacement. I'm not sure either-:).

Resignation is not surprising, ppl move on. Timing of the announcement is, why announce now, if she stays on the job until December.

Controlling the news cycle. They knew this would barely be a sidebar during the confirmation process so no need to announce then. The media will spend a few days speculating to reasons. This isn't something the left can rally against to get people out and vote so it is good to have the media talking about it. When this dies down there will be some other mundane announcement that the media will fixate on.
