UN Ambassador Nikki Haley shot barbs at North Korea on Tuesday, blaming them for making her sit through meetings on Independence Day.
Spending my 4th in meetings all day. #ThanksNorthKorea

North Korea successfully launched an intercontinental ballistic missile on Tuesday, heightening concerns that the country may become aggressive with its neighbors and the United States.
While Haley was clearly making a joke at North Korea’s expense, liberal Twitter didn’t appreciate her joshing around.
While I appreciate your service to our nation, perhaps you should be thanking the nearly 200,000 US troops serving overseas on #FourthOfJuly

The amount of arrogance in this tweet is baffling. Is serving the American people an inconvenience for you? If so, feel free to step down.

What job did you think you were signing up for, exactly?
— Clara Jeffery (@ClaraJeffery) July 4, 2017
Uhm. You know that the 4th of July isn’t an international holiday, right?

Did you think being the United States ambassador to the United Nations was a 9-5 job with holidays off?

Isn’t that your job? I bet YOUR job gives you health insurance. If you don’t like public service, quit. (TY for sharing @everywhereist)

You’re an Ambassador now. Stop tweeting like a teenage girl asked to do an extra shift at Starbucks.

The nerve of that Kim Jong-un, cutting into your 4th of July plans.

You’re a public servant. How about all the military that are working endlessly to protect us? Your tweet is pathetic.

Spending my 4th hoping we don’t get dragged into a war by a psychotic megalomaniac. Or that guy from North Korea.
