Trump says 'no one more competent in the world' than daughter Ivanka to replace Nikki Haley as UN am

Source: Independent

There is no-one more qualified “in the world” to become the next US ambassador to the United Nations than Ivanka Trump, her father Donald has claimed.

Speaking to the media on the White House lawn, the US president described his second child as "dynamite".

He told reporters that he has heard the 36-year-old's name discussed for the post, but said if he selected her he'd be accused of nepotism.

Why am I not surprised with the possibility? Nepotism is not first on my list. Not qualified for office seems to be a never ending bottomless pit.

"He told reporters that he has heard the 36-year-old's name discussed for the post, but said if he selected her he'd be accused of nepotism. ..."

The only person that has mentioned "the 36-year-old's name" for the post is her 'wish-he-could-have-sex-with-her' obsessed father.

And if there's one Donnie Two Scoops has shown, it's that he knows a great asset when he pats it.

She probably meant it like "tough", but these synonyms to formidable in Merriam-Webster fit my feelings about this whole admininstration.

alarming, dire, direful, dread, dreadful, fearful, fearsome, forbidding, frightening, frightful, ghastly, hair-raising, horrendous, horrible, horrifying, intimidating, redoubtable, scary, shocking, spine-chilling, terrible, terrifying

I just got in for the evening to hear this and I had to look to see if it was from Borowitz.

Does he think she can sell her now defunct jewelry line at the UN? I have no idea where she could have gotten the skills to represent us to the world. Unbelievable!

That's like saying that there is no one more competent to perform brain surgery than José Feliciano.

I take it the only reason Trump hasn't proposed him yet is so as not to be accused of Braillism (that, and Trump probably doesn't like his accent).
