Default Trump is About to Save Kansas from Gov. Brownback

On Tuesday, we detailed Kansas Governor Sam Brownback’s failed attempt at massive tax and spending cuts, which left schools and other critically needed services underfunded and even afoul of the law. Now it appears that President Trump is about to give the beleaguered state a welcome reprieve.

Reports are coming out of local Kansas news outlets that the President will name Gov. Brownback as the U.N. ambassador for food and agriculture. This is major cause for celebration as polls have shown Gov. Brownback to be the least popular governor in the country with a paltry approval rating of 26 percent.

The new title for Brownback would mean he would take the helm of the US Mission to the UN Agencies in Rome, which covers three international organizations that deal with global food and agriculture issues. According to their website,

“the U.S. Mission specifically works to advance UN efforts in the areas of emergency food assistance, food safety standards, agriculture, fisheries, forests, and financing for rural development.”
Despite running Kansas to the brink of financial ruin, Brownback has an extensive resume dealing with agriculture. In addition to formerly serving as Kansas’ agriculture secretary, he served on the Agriculture Subcommittee in the US Senate, was a key agriculture adviser to Trump during his campaign, and was even in consideration for Trump’s Secretary of Agriculture position. Contrasting those glowing qualifications, he has also faced criticism in Kansas for possibly cooking his state’s agricultural numbers.

Trump’s only true skill is the con; his only fundamental belief is that the United States is the birthright of straight, white, Christian men, and his only real, authentic pleasure is in cruelty. It is that cruelty, and the delight it brings them, that binds his most ardent supporters to him, in shared scorn for those they hate and fear: immigrants, black voters, feminists, and treasonous white men who empathize with any of those who would steal their birthright.~Serwer|The Atlantic
