Donald Trump kicked off the latest Twitter-based news cycle this morning by snidely tweeting about a break-in at Rep. Elijah Cummings’ home. That didn’t go over well with Nikki Haley, Trump’s former UN ambassador.

What happened next, you ask? Kellyanne Conway got involved with this semi-coherent tweet at Haley:

PENCE2020!

It’s all dumb posturing, but Haley comes off the worst here. Her tweet—the mildest possible push back on Trump’s latest attack—reads as awfully disingenuous coming from a former member of his administration, particularly one who was a noted sycophant while the going was good. The former South Carolina governor lightly criticized Trump on her way out the door, a move that was widely read as her beginning to rehabilitate her political reputation. Unfortunately for her, that’s going to take way more than some tweets.
