If anyone needs us, we’ll be over here admiring Nikki Haley for being her badass self.
After addressing the U.N. Security Council, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas left the chamber. But Haley still had something to say to him — and say it, she did:

Haley to Abbas: "Our negotiators are sitting right behind me, ready to talk. But we will not chase after you. The choice, Mr. President, is yours."https://t.co/OBDUBIwBvC

More from CNN:
“There is the path of absolutist demands, hateful rhetoric, and incitement to violence. That path has led, and will continue to lead, to nothing but hardship for the Palestinian people,” Haley said.
“Or there is the path of negotiation and compromise. History has shown that path to be successful for Egypt and Jordan, including the transfer of territory. That path remains open to the Palestinian leadership, if only it is courageous enough to take it,” she added.
Haley also took the opportunity to respond to comments made earlier this month by Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat, who said she should “shut up” with her criticism of Abbas.
“I will decline the advice I was recently given by your top negotiator, Saeb Erekat. I will not shut up. Rather, I will respectfully speak some hard truths,” Haley said.
And that’s why she’s the best.
