Hello World! It's Fox & Friends' Heather Nauert - UN Ambassador

Trump To Pick Heather Nauert, Former Fox News Anchor, As U.N. Ambassador, Source Says

https://www.npr.org/2018/12/06/663625957/trump-to-pick-heather-nauert-former-fox-news-anchor-as-u-n-ambassador-source-say

From Fox & Friends to the State Department, and now likely to the United Nations.

President Trump is expected to announce Friday that he has chosen Heather Nauert, the State Department spokeswoman and a former Fox News host, to become the next ambassador to the U.N., a senior administration official tells NPR's Tamara Keith.

If confirmed, Nauert would replace Nikki Haley, who is leaving the post at the end of the year.

There have been other missteps, including the time when she cited D-Day — the Allied invasion of Normandy against the Nazis — as an example of America's strong relationship with Germany.

1. And what's more...

The A-bombs were dropped on Japan to celebrate our appreciation of their toy and stereo manufacturing industries.

2. One suspects that knowledge or intelligence

Are perhaps not the key factors in the choices made by the “Esteemed” Mr. Trump.

17. If there's anything that comes out of the Trump aftermath...

I hope it puts a fatal end to the idea of "outsiders" providing a fresh perspective to jobs in government.

No, they don't. Like "outsiders" in any job, they simply don't know what the fuck they're doing. I would no more hire a Fox News talking bubblehead to be Ambassador to the UN than I would hire Taylor Swift to perform an oil and filter change on my car.

20. Eloquently stated

I hope that you are correct in your hope that this does put an end to the concept of outsiders being able to contribute much of anything.

3. Trump made this role "glamorous" so who better than State Dept Barbie?

It makes me sick to my stonach. He is making a mockery out of a serious body for diplomacy and peace and if he makes this appointment shows the world how little respect he has for the UN and we quite literally will be represented by an inexperienced representative Fox News Barbie who has been making a mockery out of reporting statements from the State Dept for 2 years standing there doe eyed with make up and false.

I want to throw up...

14. Seriously disgusting...

In less than 60 years we go from Adalai Stevenson confronting the Soviet ambassador in one of the most dangerous events in World History:

"Don't wait for the translation, answer 'yes' or 'no'!"

"I am not in an American court of law, and therefore do not answer a question put to me in the manner of a prosecuting counsel...you will have your answer in due course"

"I am prepared to wait for my answer until Hell freezes over!"

To a Fox News spokes model.

21. Eleanor Roosevelt was our first ambassador to the U.N.

Harry Truman appointed ER to the first American delegation to the United Nations. She represented the U.S. at the UN from December 31, 1945, until December 31, 1952, when the newly elected President Dwight Eisenhower requested her resignation.

The UN established a permanent Commission on Human Rights and unanimously elected ER chair, a position she held from 1947 until 1951 when she relinquished it saying that she did not believe in permanent chairs. She also chaired the subcommittee charged with drafting the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), and also insisted that a new chair be appointed at the end of her two-year term. She presented the UDHR to the General Assembly for adoption December 10, 1948.

ER was the UN's most noted ambassador. She traveled throughout Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and the Pacific investigating conditions and urging both support for the UN and UN humanitarian and diplomatic aid. Within the United States, she championed the UN tirelessly in "My Day," the articles and books she wrote for adults and young people, and on her lecture tour.

5. Guess the selection process was more like a casting call.

She could be a sitcom U.N. Ambassador. A real one? Does she have any experience besides Fox & Friends and her current State Dept. gig?

10. She's blonde and ignorant, worked for Fox Noise and looks good on TV

So she rather does fill every requirement the Trump administration has for women cabinet secretaries.

11. She would bring a D-Day mentality to all her relationships

resulting in brutal and bloody storming of the beaches. Exactly the type of diplomacy we need in this world.

Trump is just being very supportive of women by appointing them to important positions. This one might be more obedient than Nikki Haley was.

13. Clueless, Feckless, and Reckless.

She reflects Donald Trump perfectly. I can't wait for her first gaffe in the UN. Maybe she can refer to African nations as "shithole countries" in her first address.

16. I'm hoping that she will represent the interests of US Americans, such as the Alabama . . . .

And make sure that we have access to maps, of course.

22. Miss Teen USA 2007 was actually pretty smart.

She gets brought up a lot, so I feel like I have to defend her.

She was on CBS's Amazing Race a couple of years after that video. She exhibited surprisingly high intelligence and resourcefulness. Her boyfriend, whom she was paired up with for the show, was pretty much an idiot. Or, at least, that's how he was portrayed on that show.

She has said that she was terrified when she was asked that question at the pageant. She was on the spot and didn't know what to say. I have been in that position. I think we all have, at some time.

TrumPutin continues to downgrade U.S. importance to the world.

Putin's little bitch Donnie is doing what Putin wants. Nauert is just another unwitting puppy in the litter.
