When it was a rumored possibility, folks thought it a satirical joke, but no, the truth is, Kanye West will replace Nikki Haley as the next US Ambassador to the United Nations.
Of course, Ivanka is disappointed. Her father already announced that the whole world wanted her to be Ambassador to the United Nations. Even Putin said, “Why not? It’s only the United Nations and not as though she’s going to be doing anything important.”

But when Kanye West fueled his sentence with, "The hydrogen plane, like zoom. Fast. For the guy I love. Man," Trump said to himself, “I found my Ambassador.”
Putin added, “Of course you did!”
