Trump's Nominee for UN Ambassador Is a Tool

Donald Trump is nominating Kelly Knight Craft to be ambassador to the United Nations. She's currently United States ambassador to Canada, her husband is a billionaire Kentucky coal magnate, and she says she supports "both sides" of climate science, because "both sides have their own results, from their studies, and I appreciate and I respect both sides of the science." She comes off as a wide-eyed unthinking puppet who, of course, got the job because she and her husband donated $2M to Trump's campaign and inauguration. How embarrassing. How infuriating.

A painful interview. Both Kraft and the interviewer sound entirely ignorant about climate science. One becomes dumber by watching this.

Fortunately, the UN Ambassador has little effect on climate policy. She has a lot of other things to concern herself with. However, she looks at first glance to be a huge step down from Nikki Haley.
