Moments after UN Ambassador Nikki Haley indirectly slammed the presidents' new economic adviser for saying she was "momentarily confused" when announcing new Russia sanctions, Twitter erupted in praise for the diplomat.
"Well damn," Washington Post White House correspondent Josh Dawsey said after noting the ambassador's brief statement to Fox News.
"With all due respect, I don't get confused." Well, damn.— Josh Dawsey (@Josh Dawsey) 1524003232.0
"Nikki Haley really should have added a 'bless his heart' to her statement if she wanted to be extra savage," NPR's Jessica Taylor mused.
