Boutros Boutros-Ghali! What fresh hell is this?
President Donald Trump has decided to nominate State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to replace departing United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, according to three people familiar with the decision.
Nauert, 48, is an unorthodox choice for the UN role given that she had little experience in government or foreign policy before joining the administration in April 2017 after several years as an anchor and correspondent for Fox News, including on the “Fox and Friends” show watched by Trump. Haley also didn’t have foreign policy experience when she took the UN posting, but she had twice been elected governor of South Carolina.
This is a little surprising because she’s not a Muppet or a McDonaldland character. But still. Fox News. Kill me now.
We’re in hell. And the exits are neither illuminated nor clearly marked.
Enjoy the rest of your day. If you can.
