Last week, I watched the most chilling thing I’ve ever seen from a U.S. public official.

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley stood before the United Nations threatening more than 120 member nations with retaliation for signing a declaration condemning Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Haley spoke with clear eyes and a straight face, recklessly spewing out venom and endangering critical alliances that help us avoid global chaos.

I honestly don’t understand how you Republicans can abide this. This administration is clearly an abomination. And we, the people, are cowards for allowing this to happen. When each of us lies on our death bed, what will haunt us most are the things we failed to do. When we all know what the truth is — and what needs to be done about it — and we choose to do, or say, nothing, then we are failures.

I hope every last one of you Trump supporters will remember this letter every time you bow your head to pray.

Do so in shame.
