With rampant speculation about outgoing UN Ambassador Nikki Haley’s plans following her resignation, former MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry seemed sure of one thing.
Harris-Perry, who left MSNBC in a contentious split back in 2016, tweeted a simple declaration following news that Haley had met with President Donald Trump Tuesday to turn in her resignation.
The former South Carolina governor plans to finish out the year in her United Nations position for which she has been highly commended, but did not announce what her future plans look like.
That has not stopped people from speculating, with some thinking she could replace South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham in Congress if he takes a position in Trump’s cabinet. Many saw Haley’s resignation as a step toward getting ready for a 2020 presidential run, something she has denied.
Harris-Perry is confident that Haley in the White House is inevitable.
Mark it. @nikkihaley will be president

But her tweet sent many of her followers into a meltdown.
(And, I, also love you but, I don’t know how on Earth you can get to that conclusion, Melissa. (Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope.))

I would LOVE to have a woman President, but not THAT woman.

She quits her job and suddenly she’s going to be president? I guess I miss the nexus.

But there were a few who agreed with Harris-Perry even though they were hard to find among the dozens of negative reactions.
