Despite resigning from her post as United Nations Ambassador last year, former Republican South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley remains steadfastly devoted to President Donald Trump's administration.

Haley recently made headlines when she told a reporter that former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly tried to enlist her to "help save the country" from Trump.


Haley is continuing her devotion to Trump by decrying the constitutionally enshrined impeachment process, likening it to the "death penalty."

Her exact quote was:

"Impeachment is, like, the death penalty for a public official. When you look at the transcript, there's nothing in that transcript that warrants the death penalty for the president."

That didn't sit well with acclaimed musician and fierce criminal justice reform advocate, John Legend, who wasted no time in calling her out.

Haley, once considered a moderate Republican, has confounded many Americans with her unyielding devotion to Trump.

John Legend was among them, encouraging her to take a step back.

But people didn't expect Haley to make any concessions any time soon.

Others believe that the devotion is strategic, bolstering rumors that Trump may ditch Vice President Mike Pence in favor of Haley as his running mate in 2020.

Haley has consistently denied wanting to run as Trump's running mate.
