Planned Parenthood took a partisan parting shot at US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley just minutes after announcing her impending resignation; trashing the top diplomat for having “no formal foreign policy experience” and “blocking” women’s access to healthcare.
The left-wing organization fired-off the incendiary tweet Tuesday after President Trump officially accepted Haley’s letter of resignation, posting “Nikki Haley — who has a long track record of blocking women’s access to health care and has no formal foreign policy experience — has resigned as UN ambassador.”

Planned Parenthood made national headlines just days ago after federal filings showed the organization donated vast sums of money to key Democrats serving on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
BUSTED! NY Times Suggests Nikki Haley Bought $52k Curtains, Actually Purchased by Obama Admin
The New York Times found itself in hot-water from readers across the country Friday after the newspaper published an extremely misleading headline regarding UN ambassador Nikki Haley.
The Times published an article Thursday titled “Nikki Haley’s View of New York Is Priceless. Her Curtains? $52,701,” suggesting the ambassador purchased lavish curtains for her New York City residence.
“The State Department bought the custom, mechanized curtains for Ms. Haley’s New York resident during a time of cost-cutting,” adds the author.
It isn’t until six paragraphs later that the author admits the window dressings were actually purchased in 2016 and authorized by the Obama administration.
“This seems like a pretty important paragraph that we should get to the bottom of before calling them ‘Nikki Haley’s $52,000 curtains,’” writes a reporter for the Washington Post.

Lieu fails to mention the article -while suggesting Haley purchased $52,000 curtains for her New York residence- admits six paragraphs later that the window-dressings were approved in 2016 by the Obama administration.
Well @tedlieu, did you read the article? If you did you would have seen the fact that the 6th paragraph states:
"A spokesman for Ms. Haley said plans to buy the curtains were made in 2016, during the Obama administration. Ms. Haley had no say in the purchase, he said."
