U.K. ambassador to the U.S., Kim Darroch resigned yesterday after diplomatic cables leaked in which he described Prznint Stupid as “inept,” “clumsy,” and “radiating insecurity.”
Our totally secure-in-himself Stable Genius cut Darroch off from the administration, by calling Darroch “wacky” and a “pompous fool” and vowed to no longer do business with the ambassador, thus confirming Darroch’s point. And now, of course, all the diplomats in DC realize that they are just a breath away from getting the Darroch treatment, because they’ve all sent similar assessments. How could they not?
It’s the Kobayashi Maru scenario: they are required to give their own countries an honest, unvarnished appraisal of the situation here, and they cannot sugar coat it out of fear that their own Confidential Cables might leak and hurt our Stable Genius’ precious fee-fees. AND if it does leak, their life-long careers are ended, and their diplomatic relationship with the US is eff’ed in the dark. May we suggest SnapChat? WhatsApp?
And we know that in Comrade Stupid’s world, this is a feature and not a bug. He’s just cut the rug out from underneath our own diplomatic corps. But he has no use for them anyway, just ask Rexxon Tillerson.
But here’s the real loss: If he can badger and berate the UK Ambassador, who is to stop other countries from badgering and berating ours? So here’s another institution that he has destroyed out of his incredible insecurity, ineptness, and clumsiness.
