Poor U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley. She had to work on the Fourth of July, and she wasn’t happy about it.
Haley’s tweet was posted after North Korea launched an intercontinental ballistic missile that scientists say could have reached Alaska. So there is that. Haley didn’t understand why keeping America safe had to happen on White People Independence Day.
“While I appreciate your service to our nation, perhaps you should be thanking the nearly 200,000 US troops serving overseas on #FourthOfJuly,” Andrew Weinstein, a lawyer and former Obama administration appointee, wrote on Twitter, Yahoo! News reports. “Not to mention those protecting our homeland, including the police officers, firefighters, and other first responders keeping us safe today,” he added.
Other Twitter users weren’t as kind.
I actually understand Haley’s shock at having to work. We all know that Trump’s Cabinet didn’t think that governing meant they’d have to work weekends. In fact, I don’t think they believed that governing meant they’d have to work at all. I truly believe that this administration, from the top down, has been baffled that this whole running-the-country thing means actually doing stuff.
If Haley was using her boss as a marker, then she would think that “work” consisted of early-morning tweeting, talks about Hillary Clinton’s emails and Barack Obama living his best life, along with rallies and golfing. So I get it, Nikki, and hopefully all of this work stuff stops interfering with you getting some sun.
