Former South Carolina Governor and U.N Ambassador Nikki Haley came in for a large heaping of ridicule after finally finding a reason to criticize Donald Trump after he rudely mocked Rep. Elijah Cummings (MD) on Twitter after it was reported that the Democratic lawmaker's house had been burglarized.
The Republican Haley -- who has attempted to stay in Trump's good graces in light of reports that she might replace Vice President Mike Pence on the 2020 GOP ticket or seek his endorsement in 2024 should he be re-elected or not in jail -- lightly chided the president for writing, "Really bad news! The Baltimore house of Elijah Cummings was robbed. Too bad!"
Her response? "This is so unnecessary," with a look of askance emoji.
No one on Twitter was impressed.
