Skip to comments.Nikki Haley Jokes About Donald Trump at Al Smith Dinner...
Posted on 10/18/2018 10:46:42 PM PDT by BenLurkin
"Two years ago Trump was here and made some waves with his remarks so last year you went with Paul Ryan whos a boy scout and thats fine but a little boring," she said. "So this year you wanted to spice things up again. I get it, you wanted an Indian woman but Elizabeth Warren failed her DNA test...Actually, when the president found out I was Indian-American he asked me if I was the same tribe as Elizabeth Warren."
While the former South Carolina governor insisted that she would not be running for president in 2020, speculation mounted that she could replace Senator Lindsey Graham if he were to take over as attorney general after the midterm elections.
During her 17-minute speech Thursday, Haley took aim at Jeff Sessions, the current attorney general. "Jeff Sessions wanted to be here but he recused himself," she said. "Actually I saw Jeff Sessions earlier today, but not in New York, I saw him on LinkedIn looking for a job. Trump made sure to highly praise the ambassador, who has a high approval rating with both Democratic and Republican voters, after she said she would resign at the end of this year.
Shes done a fantastic job, and weve done a fantastic job together, Trump said during a recent Oval Office meeting with Haley. Shes a fantastic person, very importantly, but she also is somebody that gets it.
Speaking on Thursday, Haley said that she was not thinking about the 2020 election yet because it was way too early, "unless youre a Senate Democrat during the Kavanaugh hearing," she joked.
She also made sure the crowd knew she did not write the anonymous Op-Ed written... that railed against President Trump. "You can call me anything, just don't call me anonymous," she said.

A satire, right?
She didn’t really say all these things, did she?
2020 running mate material. Sure would defuse the #metoo whackos and “war on women” jihadists.
Not to mention set her up nicely for her own run at the top of the ticket in 2024
Great stand up, thats funny stuff right there
It’s the “Al Smith Dinner”
Traditionally an event for roasting.
If Trump says she’s okay, thats good enough for me.
Looking for a new husband no doubt.
It’s the Al Smith Dinner.
Political self depreciating Humor is tradition.
Look it up.
Bash Joe Biden or someone.
I do like her, and think much of her accomplishments.
We need a younger bench of possible All-Stars.
She’s good to have on the team.
“2020 running mate material. “
She’s a globalist, rino, neverTrumper anchor baby. She’s not eligible for VP or POTUS. There’s a reason SC fired her ass. There’s also a reason why she’s not ambassador to the UN anymore.
Bill Kristol sings nikki’s praises everyday...I wonder why? /s
FU Newsweek. FU and die.
“If Trump says shes okay, thats good enough for me.”
Trump says rotten rod, Kim jong-un and Xi jinping are okay, too.
Don’t take him literally.
You’re make a good point. He trashed “Lyin’ Ted Cruz’ two years ago, and now he’s endorsed him for reelection.
SC didn't fire her. She resigned to become Trump's UN ambassador.
Factually she can't be described fairly as "anchor baby." I suspect you do so only to denigrate her. Freepers used to be better than that.
Her parents were professional academics who lawfully immigrated while they were in Canada. This is what we WANT! They are also the kind of skilled, self-sufficient, educated immigrants we should prioritize welcoming.
She is NOT eligible to be the VEEP nor the president, as she is NOT a NBC!
He called him lyin ted because ted is a liar. He has no choice but to support the fraud for re-election.
