Every time you think it can’t get any more stupid, the moron train just keeps chugging down the tracks. With the sudden announcement of UN Ambassador Nikki Haley resigning from her post, there is some chatter in the media of Ivanka Trump actually replacing her.
Why am I not amazed? And why am I not surprised that His Lowness seems to be the only one on the planet that fails to see what a ludicrous idea this on the face of it? Am I the only one here that thinks that it might be a problem to have a self contained blonde with the intellectual depth of paint thinner sitting on the UN Security Council? Especially considering the fact that she is still a basic pariah for her flagrant use of sweat shop, and in some cases damn near prison camp labor in foreign countries to produce her copious lines of commercial crap.
But, on second thoughts, maybe this is exactly what the United Nations needs right now. The place has long had a reputation for being a place full of stodgy, arrogant buffoons, bloviating ceaselessly without getting a damn thing done. Sounds like a permanent rerun of the 2016 GOP primaries. But the UN could definitely use a major image rehab, and what could be better than giving the place a little sense of humor. Hey, diplomats! You thought it was hilarious when Daddums told you with a straight face how he was the greatest statesman since Caligula? Just wait until you hear Daddy’s Little Girl regale you with what a family conscious, strong, independent woman she is, and for proof show you guys a blow up of her tweet smiling with her children, at the same moment when jackbooted CBP and DHS thugs were separating screaming toddlers from their parents on the southern border. You’ll get a fresh perspective on why it’s so damn difficult for the UN to get anything useful done.
Actually, there is both an up[side as well as a downside to promoting Ivanka, and they’re the same thing. Sending Barbie Lite back to New York to pester foreigners would have the beneficial effect of getting the annoying little nuisance out of the White House, and further away from being able to do real national damage. That also happens to be the downside, since she and the human bobble head doll that she’s married to have been the direct impetus for almost every single disastrous decision that dear old Dad has made. Without Javanka around to whisper sweet nothings into his ear, Trump may actually pay enough attention to Stephen Miller to do some serious damage.
The only really fun thing about this is that if he nominates Ivanka to take over at the UN, she’s going to have to go through the Senate committee confirmation process. And here you thought that Brett Kavanaugh was a barrel of monkeys? B-b-b-baby you just ain’t seen n-n-n-n-uttin’ yet.
The wait is over! Volume two of the trilogy, President Evil II: A Clodwork Orange is now available.

And fear not, work on volume three is just beginning.
