Trump Picks Woman For UN Ambassador Who Isn’t Actually A Monster In Human Form, So … Great!

Leadership fail
Eh, it’s the best choice available

President-elect Donald Trump has chosen South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley as his Ambassador to the United Nations. This is … okay.

When you think about the James Bond villains and bumbling know-nothings he could have appointed, it’s fine.

Haley even had a moment of actual inclusion for all the non-Bubba citizens of her shitheel state when she responded to the terrorist shooting in an African American church by removing the Confederate flag from the Capitol — and with all the shitkickers clogging up South Carolina, this could not have been easy. Of course, she removed it after that badass black woman Bree Newsome shimmied up the flag pole like a cartoon hero and removed it for her. But still, it was the right thing to do, and no other Southern governor could be assed to do it.

Haley is a normal Republican; she’s not a fascist or a neo-Nazi, which has not been a given with Trump’s cabinet picks so far. We’re left to wonder how many of the people Trump has floated for various positions were to rile us all up thinking about Rudy Giuliani as secretary of State and the Ghost of John C. Calhoun for head of the Civil Rights Commission and Actual Dracula for secretary of Health and Human Services, so that when a normal person who can see herself in mirrors is tapped, and who does not get up on the podium and promise to drink all our blood or give it to Peter Thiel, it will make us weep with joy and relief.

That might be what they are doing! Or, more likely, Trump who has “the best people” has no fucking clue what he’s doing and is just winging it, because he is a nine-year-old with ADHD and can’t be bothered to strategerize anything.

Anyway, more Haleys and Romneys please — LOL, Mitt Romney is our greatest hope to save the universe, and who could have foreseen that! — and fewer Mike Huckabees and Guy From Duck Dynastys and Legitimate Nazis.

Thank you for your attention in this matter.
