On Sunday, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley said that President Donald Trump's reckless Twitter habits are just a byproduct of his passionate commitment to the country.

"Perhaps Donald Trump is too 'emotional' to be president," said Orr.
Twitter users were disgusted, appalled and -- in some cases -- bleakly amused.
