Former UN Ambassador and Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley made an appearance on this Sunday’s Meet the Press, and was asked about Trump’s comments by host Kristen Welker. Here’s her mealymouthed response.
KRISTEN WELKER: Ambassador Haley, I want to turn to former President Trump’s comments recently suggesting that outgoing Joint Chiefs Chairman General Mark Milley should be executed for treason. Do you believe those comments in and of themselves mark a threat to the United States national security? Are they disqualifying?
AMB. NIKKI HALEY: I just think it’s irresponsible. I mean, you don’t need to say things like that. I think that any man or woman that has served our country deserves the highest respect. My husband is a combat veteran. He is deployed right now. They sacrifice a lot. Their families sacrifice a lot. And we should honor them every chance that we get.
So in other words, no, it’s not dangerous or disqualifying.
And here are some of the responses to her comments:
