Meet Our Interim Secretary Of State

Model, Fashion Designer, Reality TV Actress...and now, International Diplomat


Fashion designer.

Reality TV actress.


And now, representing the US at international conventions in the absence of a Secretary of State and pretty much most of the State Department.

Without benefit of experience of international relations, education in diplomacy, or a working knowledge of critical and nuanced positions throughout the world, much less Senate approval, Ivanka Trump Kushner has been deployed to represent the United States by her daddy.

But hey, she knows how to use the cute little geo-tracking Snapchat logos! That has to count for something, right???

It's a very banana republic move by the wannabe dictator Trump, whose own aggressively willful ignorance probably doesn't see a problem with it. But the rest of the world does.

Bobby Gosh, editor of the Hindustan Times tweeted that an Indian diplomat, whose name he didn't reveal, remarked on Ivanka: "We regard Ivanka Trump the way we do half-wit Saudi princes. It's in our national interest to flatter them.”

Ouch. That "beacon on the hill" is more than a little tarnished.

Can you help us out?
