Not every social media platform is for politics. Instagram, at least for me, is for pictures of my nieces, my BBQ, and my beer. With the occasional meme and other random schtuff I find amusing. It’s the same for Ambassador Nikki Haley. The MENSA-rejects from Slate hate her for it.
We’ve had some Slatetastic “think” pieces before (see ‘Slate’ Demands we Stop Equating “Science with Truth.” They Can Screw Themselves… and Liberal Slate Says “Homophobic” Grandmothers Should Die…). But this one is remarkable. After pointing out Haley posts pictures of her dog and her daughter’s birthday, and that time she met notorious tumbler merchant Ben Shapiro, the following conclusion was drawn:
Is it wrong for a woman with one of the most stressful jobs in the world to maintain a healthy balance with her personal life? Of course not. But as someone with some level of access and influence on the president, and who acts as an arm of his agenda on the world stage, is her squeaky clean image a little upsetting? Absolutely.
Well yeah. It’s upsetting if you’re a complete and total @$$hole.
This is also a “tell” on how you know Ambassador Haley is effective at messaging and doing her job. The left can’t criticize her for legitimate reasons. So they have to make up any excuse they have to write something negative. In this case, it’s using Instagram the same way a 46-year old mother would. Or using Instagram as most people do: dogs, people, and NOT THEIR JOBS.
This is why we can’t have nice things. If not even dog photos are sacred, nothing is. Where’s the sweet meteor of death?
