The State Department just announced another SMH (Shake-my-head) moment for the country.
“The Department of State is pleased to welcome Heather Nauert as the new State Department spokesperson,”
There you go, another Fox News anchor has been hired by the State Department to be its spokeswoman.
47-year-old Nauert has been with “Fox & Friends” as a news anchor since 2012. For the most of the past 20 years, she has been with Fox News and the local New York Fox affiliate Fox 5. Minus the two years that she worked for a stint at ABC News from 2005-2007.
The statement continues,
“Nauert comes to the department with more than 15 years of experience as an anchor and correspondent covering both foreign and domestic news and events, including the 9/11 terror attacks, the war in Iraq, and the genocide in Darfur, Sudan.”
“Heather’s media experience and long interest in international affairs will be invaluable as she conveys the administration’s foreign policy priorities to the American people and the world,”
Nauert is a graduate of Mt. Vernon College for Women. She earned her master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University. She is a member of the Council of Foreign Relations. Aside from these credentials, the fact that she worked for Fox seems to be her ace, don’t you think?
If you remember, before announcing his candidacy, President Trump appeared on the Fox morning show weekly as their guest for several years prior that.
And just this February, during a press conference, Trump specifically said that “Fox & Friends” for having very honorable people. I wonder where Trump got his judgment and etiquette for things that are honorable, right?
As it is, Nauert is the second journalist from Fox that was hired by the State Department. Last February 25, Jonathan Wachtel was named spokesman for the U.S. mission to the U.N.
