Donald Trump To Nominate Scott Brown As Ambassador To New Zealand

President Donald Trump plans to nominate former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown to serve as the country’s next ambassador to New Zealand, a major non-NATO ally of the United States.

Brown, who lost his seat to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in 2012, endorsed Trump early on in the campaign and helped stump for the real estate mogul during the New Hampshire primary. He was previously considered for Veterans Affairs secretary in Trump’s administration.

New Zealand newspapers discovered some of Brown’s colorful past after his name was first floated for the diplomatic posting in February. “Man tipped for US ambassador role in NZ a former nude model who supports waterboarding,” read one headline in the The New Zealand Herald, a major publication in the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whether the last headline is true or not, it is obvious this is a completely "todified" political appointment of someone with utterly no international background or history, and is a political plum.

New Zealanders have every right to be annoyed at this appointment, as it does absolutely nothing to move the relationship between New Zealand and the US forward at any level.
