When you hear the name Donald Trump, what words come to mind? Here’s a few that would be on most people’s list: Bully, braggart, thin-skinned, liar, narcissist, fake.
But do you ever associate the current president with the word “selfless”? Because that’s what former UN Ambassador and governor of South Carolina Nikki Haley called Trump when he canceled the 2020 Republican National Convention, which had been planed for Jacksonville, Florida.
However, with Florida now in the midst of a major spike of coronavirus cases, the writing was on the wall and the GOP convention had to be shelved, leading Haley to tweet out praise of Trump in a manner so sycophantic and ass-kissing that it wound up getting her pelted with scorn and mockery.
Here’s what Haley posted Friday:
We know how much @realDonaldTrump wanted to have a blowout convention.Proud of the selfless leadership he has shown in cancelling the convention. He has a great story to tell on how he turned our economy & foreign policy around. We look forward to sharing it in the next 100 days!

Selfless leadership? What in the actual hell is that all about?!
As for “turning around” the economy and U.S. foreign policy, consider these facts:
- 40-50 million Americans are currently without work as a direct result of how badly Trump has dealt with the pandemic
- Up to 23 million Americans may soon be homeless now that the national eviction moratorium has expired
- The United States is more isolated from its allies and threatened by its enemies than it has been for at least 50 years
If that’s “selfless leadership,” then the English language no longer has any meaning whatsoever.
What exactly is Nikki Haley up to? Is she angling to replace Mike Pence as vice president on the 2020 ticket? That’s been rumored for months now as Trump’s approval rating among female voters continues to tank.
Whatever her ulterior motive, Haley was hit hard on social media for her absurd tweet:
You misspelled “selfish.” https://t.co/YgdUpXhL8J

Whatever it is that Ms. Haley “wants” for her pathetic groveling, here’s hoping all she gets is a hand cramp from tweeting out such bullshit.
