I don’t know which of these two is more amazing:
- Heather Nauert’s two-year meteoric rise from Fox News host to leading contender to take over Nikki Haley’s ambassadorship at the United Nations.
- With little effort, Nauert has the ability pass herself as a college cheerleader. But in actuality, the mother of two sons is actually a handful of weeks away from celebrating her 49th birthday.
One thing’s for sure, when it comes to brains and beauty, Nauert is certainly a winner in the genetic lottery.
And a meteoric rise for Nauert is putting it mildly. Leaving FNC to take over as the spokeswoman for the State Department in April of 2017, within 11 months she was appointed to the #3 senior position at State.
Sporting the impressive title of Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs, Nauert proved that she’s not just another pretty face.
Now we have this coming out from Fox News;
State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert is a “leading contender” to replace Nikki Haley as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, two sources familiar with the selection process told Fox News on Monday.
Nauert met with President Trump in the Oval Office earlier Monday, though it is not known if they discussed the position. Several other officials have been named as potential candidates, including U.S. Ambassador to France Jamie McCourt.
Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, surprised many observers earlier this month when she announced she would leave the post of U.N. envoy by the end of this year. She had been considered an effective advocate for U.S. interests at the world body, as well as an independent force in the Trump administration.
Nikki Haley certainly is a rarity, the first ethnic Punjabi to be elected to the governorship of an American state as well as (obviously) the first ethnic Punjabi to be sworn in as the US ambassador to the UN.
However, it’s arguable that Nauert’s backstory has Haley beat in the Rarity Department.
Nauert’s a Republican out of … wait for it … Chicago. You know that’s a damn sight rarer than a Punjabi-Sikh family out of Bamberg, South Carolina.
