Nikki Haley Called Jared Kushner a 'Hidden Genius' and Twitter Can't Stop Mocking Him

The jokes write themselves.

After the sudden announcement that she would be leaving her post at the end of the year, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley and President Donald Trump held a joint announcement where the two heaped piles of praise on each other.

The president said:

"She's done a fantastic job and we've done a fantastic job together. We've solved a lot of problems and we're in the process of solving a lot of problems."

Haley said:

"No, I’m not running for 2020. I can promise you what I’ll be doing is campaigning for [Donald Trump]. So I look forward to supporting the president in the next election."

In an administration fraught with ceaseless resignations and firings—many less than amicable—it was relatively rare to see the President accept a resignation without making an enemy afterwards.

But amidst the praise for the president, Haley was also quick to praise someone else as well: Trump adviser and son in law, Jared Kushner.

 "Jared is such a hidden genius that no one understands. I mean, to redo the nafta deal the way he did, what I’ve done working with him on the Middle East peace plan, it’s so unbelievably well done."

Jared Kushner has quite the reputation (complete with an SNL impersonation by Jimmy Fallon), but many found Haley's suggestion that Kushner is a genius laughable.

The praise may generate laughs now, but according to some theories, it could spell something much more foreboding.

Some are speculating as to why Ambassador Haley was so forthcoming with her praise of Kushner and his wife and fellow presidential adviser Ivanka Trump. Many think it has to do with who will be Haley's replacement.

Though Donald Trump said no one in the world would be more qualified than his daughter Ivanka for UN ambassador, she insists she's not in the running. Rumors continued to swirl as to what the meaning of the notable resignation may mean, with Congressman Mark Sanford (R-SC) saying, "something doesn't smell right."

It's unlikely that the White House will name Haley's replacement before the end of the year when she officially leaves the capacity of UN Ambassador, but it doesn't take a genius—however hidden—to know that Trump likes keeping family even closer than his enemies.

Nikki Haley's Blunt 'Election' Prediction Comes Back To Haunt Trump After Biden Drops Out

Earlier this year, South Carolina Republican Governor Nikki Haley made a blunt prediction about which political party would win this year's election, a statement that has garnered more attention since President Joe Biden dropped out of the 2024 race and endorsed Vice President Kamala Harris.

At 81, Biden faced increasing concerns within his party about his age and capacity to serve another term, along with fears of a potential loss to former President Donald Trump—who is 78—in November. In his announcement, Biden backed Harris as the Democratic nominee to replace him, calling it "the best decision I’ve made."
