Real Time host Bill Maher closed his satirical segment “New Rules” Friday with a public service announcement for socialism that would have made Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proud. Why? It's because he favorably described socialism as “capitalism plus” before lamenting that “our system kind of sucks.”
During an exclusive interview with outgoing United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley for Wednesday’s Today show, NBC anchor Craig Melvin speculated that she may be leaving the administration because Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation was “growing closer” to President Trump.
On Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough explains Nikki Haley's resignation as UN Ambassador by suggesting she is positioning herself for a 2020 presidential run, on the theory that, as Scarborough predicted back in August, President Trump won't seek re-election. Scarborough surmises that Haley wants to get out in front of Mike Pence.
New York Times reporter Gardiner Harris latest hit on a conservative foreign policy figure appears to have backfired in spectacular fashion. Harris's report isupposedly caught United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley for wild spending on her official residence, “Envoy’s View of City is Priceless. The Curtains? $52,000.” The text box: “A purchase was made at a time when the State Dept. was slashing its budget.” Or maybe not. The decision to purchase the curtains for the official residence, as well as the move to a new residence, was made in 2016, during the Obama administration.
United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley pressured a Washington Post "Wonkblog" reporter into deleting tweets that wrongly quoted her in response to the U.N. claims about "extreme poverty" in America. Stein wrote a story cheekly claiming that Team Trump was claiming victory in the "war on poverty."

Here is a short list of prominent conservatives and independent thinkers who've been accused by their critics of being an "Uncle Tom" or some other vitriolic variation on the overplayed left-wing theme of being a traitor to their race or gender ("Aunt Tomasina," "Uncle Juan," "Aunt Jemima," "Uncle Wong," etc.)[.]
As Chris Cuomo, co-host of CNN's New Day, complained about President Trump's response to Russia's involvement in the poisoning of a former Russian spy residing in the UK, his guest, left-leaning Independent Senator Angus King told him "I think you're being a little hard." King, who caucuses with the Democrats and supported Hillary Clinton in 2016, is not normally known for defending President Trump.
Sunday, Australia's The Today Show host asked Fire and Fury author Michael Wolff whether he should apologize for starting and backing away from a rumor of an extramarital affair between UN Ambassador Haley and President Trump. Wolff then claimed that his earpiece wasn't working. At one point, when the host asked Wolff if he could hear him, the author responded almost immediately.

Nikki Haley didn’t complain about the liberal lectures during the recent Golden Globe Awards. Nor did the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. whine about the SAG Awards or last year’s Academy Awards gala. Each event dripped with progressive politics. Haley remained silent. She doesn’t engage with liberal stars like her boss, President Donald Trump, frequently does.
On Thursday, the panel on MSNBC’s Morning Joe dog piled Michael Wolff for propagating an unfounded rumor that President Trump had been having an affair with his ambassador to the U.N., Nikki Haley.
