Former Trump-era UN Ambassador Nikki Haley is being mocked after she called for both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris to resign.
“If Joe Biden loved our country, he would step down and take Kamala Harris with him because the foreign and domestic policy situation is beyond dangerous at this point,” Haley tweeted Thursday.
Haley, who is believed to be a 2024 GOP presidential candidate if Trump does not run, made the same remarks on Fox News one day earlier. Her Twitter page is filled with her own retweets of that story.
Many people, including Bloomberg News White House reporter Jennifer Epstein pointed out that the Speaker of the House is second in line to the presidency.

“This is why people don’t take you seriously,” commented The Atlantic’s Molly Jong-Fast.
“You’re a ridiculously silly person,” tweeted best-selling author Benjamin Dreyer, the copy chief at Random House.
Historian Kevin M. Kruse added:

But political science professor Jeffrey Lazarus got to the bottom of what’s really happening here:
The idea that Democratic control of government is ipso facto illegitimate is becoming increasingly common in Republican circles. https://t.co/EsbTbrhB0P

Others also served up scathing responses:

Wow Nikki Haley wants to decapitate our government like Putin does. Again the GOP is not on the side of the USA. https://t.co/BCrJCKvrY2

This is just so monumentally stupid and hypocritical that I don’t even know where to start. https://t.co/C57u1NSUxf

You betrayed our country for Donald Trump and Putin. And you still do their bidding.

Might be time to admit that Haley was never a serious person. https://t.co/npLgF8UkKC

Please explain in detail what they have done that is worse than the last 4 years both domestically and abroad. Nikki Haley wants to put Pelosi in charge. The GOP doesn’t even know why they are attacking anymore. It’s like they have a random outrage generator they click every day https://t.co/QYyPKeB3Zr

I did not expect to see Nikki Haley endorsing Nancy Pelosi for president but here we are https://t.co/ee3i3ESaz0
