    Thumbs up Trump's "Real" Reason for Firing Ambassador Yovanovich

    If this is true, the guy needs to be shuffled off by the guys in white jackets and locked up. According to the Embassy the picture was hung as soon as they arrived, so who has a history of lying? Perhaps the picture that was hung wasn't the one Trump wanted so he had a hissy fit?


    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/trump-c...sy-in-ukraine/
    President Trump attacked former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch on Friday, saying she was "not an angel" and claiming she refused to hang his framed photograph in the embassy in Kiev for at least a year.


    "This ambassador that everybody says was so wonderful, she wouldn't hang my picture in the embassy," Mr. Trump told "Fox and Friends" in an interview. "She wouldn't hang it."
    A member of Yovanovitch's legal team said the embassy hung photos of Mr. Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and the secretary of state "as soon as they arrived from Washington, D.C." The embassy in Kiev did not return a request for comment.

    There is nothing in your post that indicates that is why she was fired.

    So, you post another false, unsupported allegation and try to pass it off as fact.

    Shameful, but not unexpected.

    I kind of wish Trump would actually promote this as the reason for why he fired her, if only to see how triggered the reactions would be throughout the media.

    Wouldn't you like to know more about why the newly elected leader of the Ukraine was ...not...a fan of her and wanted a replacement? Seems he indicated she didn't "accept" him , in his new position.

    I watched her testimony and was not impressed. Oh yes, she has a high opinion of how she knows better than others and therefore should be allowed to do things her way. She had an out from being fired. She could have resigned, if all the things she said she was confused about were a problem. Like now, she would have been given some easy job and received her same pay etc. Poor little lady is working so hard to teach ...one...class...at Georgetown U.

    Seems to be a spam pattern for Democrats. Throw out mass spews of baseless accusations and hope that the noise hides the reality that Democrats are actually the corrupt colluders and puppets of foreign interests. They’ve long used the State Department as their graft machine and it needs to be purged and ultimately disbanded.
    Why do some liberals think itís okay to wear blackface then call other people racists? 0

    Can you spot the irony in your post?

    She served at the pleasure of the President. He didn't want her any more.

    Anything else is not relevant. Just stupid stuff.
