Twitter Throws a Pity Party for Ambassador to UN Nikki Haley After She Complains About Working on Fourth of July

Nikki Haley was not happy about having to work on the Fourth of July holiday — and the Internet was not happy about her complaining about it.

President Donald Trump‘s ambassador to the UN is under fire after she tweeted on Tuesday: “Spending my 4th in meetings all day. #ThanksNorthKorea.”

The tweet came after North Korea successfully test launched earlier Tuesday an intercontinental ballistic missile that showed potential for being able to strike Alaska.

But the majority of Twitter did not sympathize with the former governor of South Carolina, with many seizing the opportunity to criticize both her and the president.

One critic tweeted in response: “Spending my 4th hoping we don’t get dragged into a war by a psychotic megalomaniac. Or that guy from North Korea.”

President Trump also criticized North Korea on Twitter, writing of leader Kim Jong Un: “North Korea has just launched another missile. Does this guy have anything better to do with his life?”

“Hard to believe that South Korea … and Japan will put up with this much longer,” he continued. “Perhaps China will put a heavy move on North Korea and end this nonsense once and for all!”

When he wasn’t busy tweeting, Trump spent the holiday at his Trump National Golf Club in Virginia and later, at a White House picnic with military families.
