Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley decided to get social media ablaze for a second with her tweet about “false rumors” that included Vice President Mike Pence. Given the sexist smears against Haley by her political opponents in which without evidence, these clowns have alleged she has had many affairs—some people thought that could be it. In fact, she was merely shutting down rumors that she could replace Pence on the ticket (via CBS News):

 Nikki Haley dismissed speculation that she could replace Vice President Mike Pence on the presidential ticket in 2020, decrying "false rumors" in a tweet on Wednesday. The former U.N. ambassador has previously assured the public that she would not challenge President Trump in a primary in 2020, and this latest tweet comes after Mr. Trump affirmed that he intends to keep Pence on the ticket.

"Enough of the false rumors. Vice President Pence has been a dear friend of mine for years. He has been a loyal and trustworthy VP to the President. He has my complete support," Haley wrote in what appeared to be an unprompted tweet. The tweet included a picture of her and Pence at the United Nations.

Mr. Trump addressed rumors that Haley could replace Pence in an interview with Fox Business Network in June.

"I love Nikki. She's endorsed me. She's my friend. She's part of my campaign, but Mike has been a great vice president," Mr. Trump said. "I love Nikki and there are places for Nikki, and Nikki's future is great, but Mike Pence is the person, 100%. We won together. We have tremendous evangelical support. You can't break up a team like that."

Granted, anything can happen, but this seems to be good ole’ dog days of summer fodder, filler that’s really not needed because we’ve had quite the news cycle concerning China, trade wars, and a canceled trip with the Danish prime minister. The purchasing of Greenland isn’t happening and neither is Trump-Haley 2020.
