US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley had the audience laughing when she joked about both Jews and Iran at an event on Thursday night in New York City.

During her keynote speech at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner in midtown Manhattan, Haley said, “I’m proud to be very close to the Jewish community. In fact, they gave me a nickname. Does anybody know what shiksa means?”

Haley later poked fun at the lack of free press in Iran saying, “They still think John Kerry is secretary of state.”

The annual dinner raises money for needy children in New York City. During her speech, Haley also made jibes about her Indian-American heritage, President Donald Trump and the current political climate in America.
