Los Angeles, Oct. 18 2018 A.Gary Singh

Outgoing U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, speaking Thursday evening at the Al Smith dinner, where every four years the presidential nominees of both parties speak.

Nikki Haley poked at President Donald Trump, Kanye West and attorney general Jeff Sessions Thursday night, and, sympathized with Elizabeth Warren's recent DNA test. Nikki Haley drew laughs with a speech that read like list of bad comments on a racist, misogynistic 4Chan thread. Nikki Haley jokes at fundraising dinner: "You wanted an Indian woman"

“I get it, you wanted an Indian woman, but Elizabeth Warren failed her DNA test,” Haley cracked during her keynote address for the charity dinner. “Actually, when the president found out that I was Indian-American, he asked me if I was from the same tribe as Elizabeth Warren.”

“When I saw the mayor backstage, I told him I was really glad to be here. He said, ‘Me too.’ Mayor, it’s not a good idea for a man to ever use that phrase.”

Republican politician in Washington had the courage that Nikki Haley showed at the Al Smith dinner, to say what she said, to step forward as she stepped forward. Senate

From her speech, it is clear that she is proud of the Trump administration and honored to have been an active arm of the machinery that carried out its agenda. She thinks the legacy she’s leaving behind is the kind of thing you can laugh off. The wealthy and powerful people at the tables behind her—comedians, television personalities, former public officials—clearly agreed. It was all smiles from everyone that night.

  • Her work has resulted in savings of $600 million by avoiding wasteful and duplicative spending in UN peacekeeping missions.
  • She has highlighted the unfair policy of the United Nations in dealing with Israel.
  • She has successfully urged the UN Security Council to adopt North Korea sanctions.

" Haley stands above them all is down to her personal charisma, her self-identification as an Indian-American, and most of all, to her political success, " The Daily News Beast wrote. "This is not a small achievement, since the field of Indian-American politicians is now crowded with prominent figures. The Trump administration has more Indians in senior positions than any that has gone before, including Ajit Pai, Raj Shah, and Seema Verma. And among the cohort of Indian-Americans in the Democratic Party are rising stars like Kamala Harris, Preet Bharara, Ro Khanna, Pramila Jayapal, and Raja Krishnamoorthi.".

  • A new Morning Consult-Politico poll ranks Haley as the second-most-popular member of President Donald Trump's cabinet. Only Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has a higher approval rating from the public. Haley tied for No. 2 with housing secretary Ben Carson.
  • A Quinnipiac poll of 1,193 voters conducted in late April found 63 percent of respondents approved of the way Haley is handling her job in the Trump administration, including a majority of Democrats. Fifty-five percent of Democrats surveyed approved of Haley

Haley embraced the fierce Republican hostility towards the United Nations and is wielding defense of Israel as the sword with which she will slay the organization.

She isn’t your standard white Republican male but the daughter of NRI immigrants who tasted discrimination and abuse during her childhood. She is a true conservative, perhaps, but one who has weaned herself off the rigid ideology she embraced when she started out in politics.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), instead of telling the nation that political opponents are not enemies, is now imitating Trump and accusing Democrats and liberals of being a mob.
