Upon hearing about the resignation of whom he referred to as his “spirit animal,” host of “The Ben Shapiro Show” and Editor-in-Chief of the Daily Wire Ben Shapiro said on his daily Facebook Live podcast that “Nikki Haley was indeed a bad a-- in her job as the UN ambassador.”
“Now Nikki Haley was indeed a bad a-- in her job as the UN ambassador,” stated Ben Shapiro. “She basically spent every day going and yelling at despots, which was— And she was great at it.”
Shapiro’s comments came after UN Ambassador Nikki Haley announced her resignation, according to CNSNews.com, “effective at the end of the year, saying she believes in term limits and giving someone else a chance to do the job.” UN Ambassador Haley said about the administration, ““Look at the two years. Look at what has happened in two years with the United States on foreign policy. Now the United States is respected. Countries may not like what we do, but they respect what we do.”
Below is a transcript of Ben Shapiro’s remarks from his show Tuesday:
Ben Shapiro: “Today is indeed a sad day. Ambassador Nikki Haley, United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, my spirit animal, she decided that she was going to resign, apparently a few days ago, and that was just announced today.
“All I can say is that I’m stuck in a glass cage of emotion, a glass cage of emotion. I’m so sad right now. The sadness overwhelms me at times.
“If I have to take a break to go cry in the corner and just rock myself and eat ice cream, that might be happening a little bit later in the show. We’ll try to avoid it as best we can.
“Nikki Haley made that announcement in the White House with President Trump today. It was a shock announcement. Here’s what she had to say.”
UN Ambassador Nikki Haley: “It has been an honor of a lifetime. I, you know, I said I am such a lucky girl to have been able to leave the state that raised me and to serve a country I love so very much. It has really been a blessing and I want to thank you for that.”
Shapiro: “Now Nikki Haley was indeed a bad a-- in her job as the UN ambassador. She basically spent every day going and yelling at despots, which was— And she was great at it.
“I mean, she would go in and she would talk about how the United States was exceptional and America was a unique place and our allies, like Israel, were worth supporting, and how the UN was basically the Mos Eisley of the international, institutional sort of layout. And she was exactly correct about all of those things.
“I will miss Nikki Haley greatly.
“She explained some of the things she got done as UN ambassador.”
UN Ambassador Haley: “I’m most excited.
“Look at the two years. Look at what has happened in two years with the United States on foreign policy. Now the United States is respected. Countries may not like what we do, but they respect what we do. They know that if we say we’re going to do something, we follow it through, and the president proved that – whether it was with the chemical weapons in Syria, whether it’s with NATO, saying that other countries have to pay their share, whether it’s the trade deals, which have been amazing.
“They get that the president means business … .”
