As Trump 's World Turns: Communications Can Hurt

Image may contain: 1 person, text

When we think in terms of speaking, do you agree with the thought a highly compensated talking head (presstitutes) should have the skill to appear on a News network segment and speak without fail about their boss? Well, the logical answer is: "Yes." The defensive answer is: "Maybe."  And, the irrational Trump supporter's answer is: "No."

The Trump supporter is correct, in the context of this post.

Watch seven seconds of a very highly compensated talking head on CNN.

On the eve of the 74th anniversary of D-Day, former Fox News personality and State Department official,  Heather Nauert, spoke in defense of a US Ambassador to Germany who is reported to be on the wrong side of acceptable to German political officials  What transpired in the State Department briefing is absolutely stupefying yet indicative of Trump's staffing decisions.   

Nauert invoked a phantom D-Day relationship with Germany.  The US lost 9,000 fighting men on the beaches of Normandy. Guess which nation was responsible for their deaths.

"When you talk about Germany — we have a very strong relationship with the government of Germany," the senior State Department spokesperson said at a June 5 briefing. "Looking back in the history books, today is the 71st anniversary of the speech that announced the Marshall Plan. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the D-Day invasion. We obviously have a very long history with the government of Germany, and we have a strong relationship with the government."

Before we close let's take a couple of minutes to see and hear how MSNBC's Rachel Maddow addressed the obvious State Department FUBAR laced with a chronic lack of professionalism from Nauert.

Shouldn't we expect better from our Executive Branch of Federal government?

Doesn't the nation deserve better from the State Department?

For some reason, I believe the nations deserves much better in the State Department.  Nauert's comments were intern-like Bush League and downright embarrassing.
