Haley, who recently announced that she would be leaving her ambassador role at the end of the year, cracked jokes at the annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner, which is a charity event that raises money for impoverished children. Elizabeth Warren, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions among others. Haley said. "I get it".

Haley made reference to Warren releasing her DNA test results showing she could be anywhere between 1/64th to 1/1,024th Native American.

On the president's advice for Haley's speech: "He said if I get stuck for laughs, just brag about his accomplishments".

Warren claimed Native American heritage when she applied to become a faculty member at Harvard University.

Haley turned to de Blasio, who was seated near his fellow Democrat Andrew Cuomo, the governor of NY, and reminded him that she has "diplomatic immunity" as a member of the United Nations delegation.

However, her resignation was seen by many as a way for Haley, who has become a highly respected figure, to distance herself from the chaos of the Trump administration so that she can pursue higher office later on.

Haley made more jokes at the Smith dinner, as reported by CNN.


"Actually the president called me this morning and gave me some really good advice. I get it, you wanted an Indian woman, but Elizabeth Warren failed her DNA test", she said.

The crowd erupted in laughter.

Haley continued, with Trump still in her cross-hairs. She has said she wanted to pay respect to her ancestors, as more of her relatives were dying.

The South Carolina-born Haley, meanwhile, is the daughter of immigrants from the Punjab region of India. "Actually I saw Jeff Sessions earlier today, but not in NY, I saw him on LinkedIn looking for a job". "It really killed at the United Nations, I got to tell you". I saw him on LinkedIn looking for a job.

Haley went on to explain that she had been witness to "true evil" during her tenure as Ambassador to the United Nations, citing examples such as Syria and South Sudan. At one point, she turned serious and appeared to call out Trump's political antagonism.

"In America, our political opponents are not evil", she pointed out, noting that crimes committed against political opponents in Syria and Sudan are real instances of evil.
