Fox News Mission to the United Nations

Fox News Mission to the United Nations

Heather Nauert, a former Fox News personality and current State Department PR flack, has been tapped by President Trump as Nikki Haley‘s replacement as U.N. Ambassador. Ms. Nauert has shown a fine grasp of diplomacy in her current position at State:

She also accompanied Secretary of State Pompeo to Saudia Arabia for a grim discussion about the torture and murder of journalist Jamal Kashoggi, marking the solemn occasion by posting a grinning tourist self-portrait on Instagram.

Heather Nauert has been at the State Department for 19 months. That’s her first and only government experience.

“Ms. Nauert is one of numerous television personalities with roles in Mr. Trump’s as-seen-on-TV administration. Mr. Bolton was a Fox contributor, and Bill Shine, a former Fox co-president, serves as deputy chief of staff. Larry Kudlow, a longtime CNBC host, stars as the president’s chief economic adviser.”

Sarah Palin: Fox News Rerun

Sarah Palin: Fox News Rerun
Sarah Palin, former Miss Wasilla and once part-time Temp-Governor of Alaska, will return to Fox News, where she previously impersonated a political commentator with the same authority she brought to the losing 2008 GOP presidential campaign. Six months ago Fox News ended their three-year relationship with Mrs. Palin. That’s a year longer than she lasted as Alaska’s governor. She was brought back by Fox News Chaiman Roger Ailes (who has called her stupid) as a stunt to counter competition from CNN, and probably for less money than before. She’ll contribute to morning gabfest Fox & Friends.
