Former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley is being blasted online after firing off a tweet defending President Donald Trump’s disparaging comments about the military dead and captured, in which the president labeled them “losers and suckers,” and then demanding that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden take down a Twitter video post that criticized the president over his remarks.
“Biden should take this down. All of us who worked with @realDonaldTrump witnessed the tremendous amount of love and respect he has for our military. He was determined to protect them. We had many conversations in NSC meetings about protecting them. #TakeItDown #MilitarySpouse,” Haley demanded, linking to the Biden tweet.
Haley, one of Donald Trump’s biggest defenders, was promptly called out for defending comments by the president that have been universally condemned as indefensible.
Many on Twitter begged her to abandon Trump and save what little dignity she has left.
Take a look at some of the reactions below:

At one time I thought you were ok. As Fox News has confirmed and we have all witnessed the past- there is no respect for the Military from this Admin. Salvage whatever dignity you may have left.

You sold your soul. You should delete your account.

Trump pardons soldiers who commit war crimes, but ridicules soldiers who give their lives.

You should be ashamed. Of yourself. Of your hypocrisy.

Bullshit! Trump called John McCain a loser. He said POWs are not heroes because they were captured. He put down gold star families & refuses to hold Putin accountable for the Russian bounties. You support a traitor who has the utmost disdain for the military. You complicit witch.

Sorry, Nikki. But, we’ve all heard him shoot his mouth off for years. The problem with what you’re saying, is that it doesn’t match up to what we’ve seen/heard with our own eyes and ears. The Atlantic story on the other hand? It matches up perfectly.

And the rage is still going on Twitter.
