11. Would you actually wish that on Hillary?

The President sets policy. I doubt either HRC or Kerry, who is more of a negotiator and was more involved in diplomacy on this, would work for Trump.

What would make sense is any non political SD person who worked on Syria if any are still on the department. The question would be who that person would work for.

It might be any diplomacy will have to be led by France. The UK has Boris Johnson as their foreign minister.

8. Ribbentrop did fade to the background...

after Barbarossa. Certainly after Dec. of 41. No real diplomacy necessary after that.

32. They just need a messenger to make a deal...

"Here's the deal. You totally surrender, and give us all your people and assets. And we won't kill you. We gotta deal?" Hitler diplomacy.

Not quite as bad as Trump but not even approaching adequate for the job. In addition to being wrong in every other way.

Scott Dworkin @funder
‏Here she is, our new Secretary of State, @IvankaTrump repping us in Peru. This is an international disgrace. Congress didn’t confirm her for the gig. She isn’t qualified. Has zero true diplomatic experience. America is a laughingstock.

This shit is outrageous! The f**king republicans have disavowed and broken all their oaths to protect and defend this country letting Trump do shit like this!

They are truly a party of traitors!

33. I'm worried. Very worried. Our country's been taken over by Russia and the Trump Mob.

He most of the Republicans paid off or scared sh*tless of him. Just like a mob boss.

However, Russia will be p*ssed off about the bombing. Is it possible he'll cut Trump loose for doing that? Probably not...we bombed Syria's govt last year for the same thing. Putin & Trump were still bffs after that. Don't know why.

Ok. Trump also sent Pence, an asshole but also the Vice President of the U.S., which is at least a bit better diplomatically than just sending your vacuous kid.

34. Nor many other essential positions - like ambassadors to major countries

And these positions have never been filled, as well as essential jobs in the State Department. Previous presidents have these,jobs filled on taking office. The "government" we have now is now functioning on the whim of Trump - who knows nothing about either government or history.
