Republicans just bragged about Trump’s new UN Ambassador’s “credentials” and it backfired hilariously

As Trump’s chosen appointees flee the chaos and dysfunction of his administration in ever greater numbers, it’s been harder and harder to attract anyone suitably qualified to fill the vacancies.

As the Mueller probe looms ominously over the President and he sinks deeper into the abyss of paranoia and resentment, fewer and fewer conservatives are willing to put their careers and their names at risk by becoming involved with this toxic administration, leading to the appointment of less and less qualified candidates to critically important positions.

That much was made obvious on Friday when the Republican Party’s official Twitter account fired off a tweet bragging about the “credentials” of Trump’s new Ambassador to the United Nations, Heather Nauert.

Those credentials include, uh, ” traveling,” and not much else:

Heather Nauert previously worked as a FOX News host on the Big Story, became a newsreader on the president’s favorite show, FOX and Friends, in 2012 before joining the government as a spokeswoman for the State Department in 2017 — meaning that she has almost no experience in diplomacy or international relations.

What she does have, and what Trump clearly values above everything else, is loyalty to the Trump family. She publicly tweeted support for Ivanka Trump after Nordstrom’s pulled all Ivanka Trump-branded clothing from their shelves, saying she would buy two pairs and promote them on FOX and Friends that week.

Social media was quick to pounce on Trump and the GOP for choosing a FOX host to represent the United States on the world’s largest stage, and the results are hilarious.

Here’s a selection of the best responses:
