Jared Kushner found himself the butt of many Twitter jokes after Nikki Haley, outgoing U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, described him as a “hidden genius.”

Haley called Donald Trump’s son-in-law and adviser “a hidden genius that no one understands” during an Oval Office press conference with the president Tuesday in which she announced her resignation.

Haley’s bizarre compliment lit up Twitter, with many respondents inevitably comparing it with the president’s bonkers description of himself as “a very stable genius” earlier this year:

Jared Kushner is hiding a lot.Genius is not one of them.

Nikki calls Jared a "hidden genius". Real hidden. So hidden you'd think it doesn't exist (it doesn't).

Nikki Haley calls Jared Kushner a “hidden genius that no one understands.”None of us are smart enough to understand Kushner’s genius.

Is it a compliment to call a public official publicly engaged in public policy a "hidden genius" ?

Nikki Haley says Jared Kushner is a "hidden genius." Ah. That's why we can't see how he brought peace to the Middle East. It's hidden peace.

UN Ambassador Nikki Haley really just claimed that ”Jared Kushner is such a hidden genius."This is just as unbelievable as Donald Trump’s claim that he is a “stable genius”.This family has NO Genuises!

I forget … on the genius scale, is the “stable genius” or the “hidden genius” the more geniusey?@realDonaldTrump https://t.co/XtNE8rCNlW

So many hidden geniuses and stable geniuses in this administration, I bet all the tell-all books will be called "Genius" instead of "Fear" or "Fire and Fury" or "Absolute Terror" or "Utter Insanity" or "Holy Shit They're All Mad Racist Criminals." https://t.co/Ri6YTsVLte

Jared Kushner is a "hidden genius" in the same way I am a hidden 11-foot tall woman skilled at archery and playing the electric ukulele.

Jared is such a hidden genius that it’s almost as if he’s not a genius at all. https://t.co/ePsEkR9HDQ

Trump is expected to announce Haley’s replacement within the next month. His daughter and adviser, Ivanka Trump ― Kushner’s wife ― has ruled herself out for the role. Trump said she would be “dynamite” in the position.
