"Where is the furthest away we can dump this asshole?"

James Comey is already here

Co-incidence? I think not

FortyHams: "Where is the furthest away we can dump this asshole?"


Brown won Trump's favour by endorsing him at a pivotal point of the 2016 GOP presidential primaries, just after Trump had lost Iowa to Ted Cruz and just before the New Hampshire primary.
He was briefly floated as a possible vice-presidential running mate for Trump, and in November said he hoped to become Trump's secretary of Veterans Affairs, but was passed over, Politico reported.

He then served in the Massachussetts legislature, before representing his state in the US Senate between 2010 and 2012. Since then, it says, he "has been a political commentator for Fox News".

I thought a senator had a 6 year term?

mjjt

He won a special election after Ted Kennedy's brain was eaten and served the remainder of Kennedy's term. He lost the next regularly scheduled election.

Well, he'll have The Girl With The Curious Hand with him.  So, he has that going for him... which is nice.

The bigger news is that Trump is actually appointing an ambassador to somewhere rather than having Jared and Rex run all over the world.

I really do think it's less "who's the worst person I can nominate?", and more "Who is left that is willing to be associated with me?" when trump appoints people.

Maybe so but it sounds like a pretty cushy job to me.  I wouldn't mind having it.  However, it does seem to indicate an end to Brown's political aspirations, at least in the short run.

Well New Zealand is a part of Five Eyes and actively suckered Kim Ditcom in to arrest him for the US against their own Constitution. So they are Good People, I'm sure. Since we spy on their citizens for them and they spy on our citizens for us, it's not like there's anything to hide.

Jared: Mr. President, the sovereign country of New Zealand is in need of an ambassador from your administration.  Although the country has no strategic or economic value relative to some of our other allies, it is a very stable democracy.  I believe the new ambassador should be a man who has some recognition abroad but is never thought of as straying off the intended political path outlined for him to follow.  I believe no man is better suited for that country than Scott Brown.
Trump: There's a NEW Zealand?

Bye Bye, Scotty2Hottie.

We dont farking want him thanks very much.

The beacons are lit. Kiwis call for aid.
 
2017-04-20 09:08:36 PM  
Sorry, Kiwis. Look on the bright side; now that all the top tier menaces are busy destroying the USA on the domestic front, and saber rattling at less than friendly nations, and saber rattling at friendly nations we share land border with, he's only finding ineffective 4th tier My Little Pony villains to send your way. So, that's cool, right?

Ugh, now this guy's going to be living in my neighborhood.
 
2017-04-20 09:32:12 PM  
He shall pass Senate confirmation!

I'm not a big fan of Scott Brown, though I'd sure as hell take him over basically any other republican in congress, state governor, or the federal executive branch right now.  However, he was NOT A NUDE MODEL!  He didn't show his penis, his balls, or his asshole thus, not nude!

As a New Zealander, I think we'll live. I'd rather live in a country where a diplomatic posting is given out as a political sinecure, instead of one where a deft hand and nuanced diplomatic finesse is required from a career foreign service officer.
 
2017-04-20 11:38:08 PM  
I can't imagine he'll be any worse in that job than my old Senator, Carol Moseley Braun.

We said the same thing when he threw his carpet bag into the truck and drove to New Hampshire to run for the senate.

IM SCOTT BROWN/I KNOW WHO I AM/AND I DRIVE A TRUCK!

Good grief.

If you're gonna life the last two sentences from a Trump tweet, at least have the decency to attribute.

I'm did not intentionally plagiarize him, if he did say that, then I actually agree with President Trump on something.
