Just lost all respect for Niki Haley when she walked out on the Palestinian speaker at the UN.

At a time like this, when lives are lost and war and peace are in the balance, such a display of disrespect for suffering people is uncalled for in my opinion. She is not Presidential material in my book. I used to think more highly of her.

1. Why did you ever think highly of her?

Why did you ever have any respect for her?

4. I didn't realize she was so stupid

I thought she had some, not a lot but some, common sense. Acting like a petulant child doesn't garner respect.

8. She also was a pretty outspoken critic of him in 2016.

She changed her tune as soon as he offered her a job.

7. She was never presidential material

Plus she is a member of the Trump administration. Anyone who willingly joins that cabal is not worthy of trust or admiration.

10. Didn't have any respect for her

even before she decided to take the job.

We need to become more ruthless as a whole. The reps would love nothing more than to bury the Dem party forever. F 'em all.

11. they can bullshit all they want about being "committed to peace"

but actions speak louder than words, and the message delivered by the US the last two days has been that Israel is the only state in the region we listen too, and Palestine and its people have no right to exist.

12. She was quite dishonorable back when she was a governor.

For example, here's a mediaite piece that lays out some of her dishonest, unprincipled opportunism in re the confererate flag.

https://www.mediaite.com/tv/stop-the-bullsht-nikki-haley-not-the-trump-smashing-confederate-flag-hero-youre-being-sold/

That issue was not unique or one-off thing. It's how she behaves -- she is transparent that her only core principle is doing or saying the thing that benefits herself politically.

13. She said that she thought "Isreal showed restraint"

before she walked out. That does not garnish respect from me.

14. Please. She likely couldn't have picked Israel out on a map before this shit show started

I do think Trump has some level of fear of Haley which is likely why she got the gig. Itís a lousy job to launch a presidential campaign from and the last thing he needed was her down in SC gathering strength and becoming a potential primary challenger down the road. Also, Iíve noticed she seems to be treated with kid gloves relative to those who have fallen out of favor and end up getting the boot. I donít think thatís an accident.

15. Begging the question?

Why would you have any respect for her prior to this action.

Respect is earned and not just a given. What has she done to earn your respect?

Her in the first place. Now she only multiplies my disgust for her and the rest of those with that same disease.
