Liberals have Russian Derangement Syndrome, so anything to do with that country sends them into a tailspin.
The fact that President Trump just named his Russian Ambassador should have their heads imploding.
Anything “Russia related” triggers liberals and our lying mainstream media.
So, who did President Trump pick for the spot?
Former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman.
President Trump on Tuesday announced his intent to nominate former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman (R) to serve as the U.S. ambassador to Russia.
“Governor Jon Huntsman has had a distinguished career as a politician, diplomat, and businessman,” the White House said in a press release.
“His robust record of public service includes service as U.S. Ambassador to China and to Singapore, Deputy United States Trade Representative, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Commerce for East Asian and Pacific Affairs, and Deputy Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Trade Development. He was also twice elected Governor of Utah.”
The nomination of Huntsman to the diplomatic post had been a rumored possibility through most of Trump’s time in office.
In March, NBC News reported in March that Huntsman had accepted the role after reports surfaced that talks about the nomination were in progress.
The announcement comes as the Trump administration has been bogged down by ongoing federal and congressional probes that are looking into whether Trump campaign associates colluded with the Russians during the 2016 presidential election.
There had also been buzz that the former Utah governor could be a possible secretary of State candidate, but Trump ultimately chose Rex Tillerson for the top position.
Huntsman had endorsed Trump during the election last year, but later called for the GOP candidate to drop out of the race after the 2005 Access Hollywood tape release that showed Trump talking about sexually assaulting women.
“In a campaign cycle that has been nothing but a race to the bottom — at such a critical moment for our nation — and with so many who have tried to be respectful of a record primary vote, the time has come for Governor [Mike] Pence [R-Ind.] to lead the ticket,” Huntsman told the Salt Lake Tribune last October.
The appointment comes on the heels of a bombshell report that revealed Donald Trump Jr. met with a Russian lawyer during the election after an associate promised him compromising information on the campaign of his father’s opponent, Hillary Clinton.
