Petition launched asking Trump to make Hillary Ambassador to Libya

In a stunning move a petition has been launched by Bernie Sanders supporters and despondent Democrats to have President-elect Donald J. Trump nominate Hillary Clinton as the ambassador to Libya. Mrs. Clinton, if approved by the U.S. Senate, would replace Ambassador Peter W. Bodde.

The effort is being lauded by ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS and MSNBC as an “unprecedented effort to unify the country by giving Mrs. Clinton a key foreign policy position in the Trump administration.”

The petition reads in part:

We ask in a spirit of unity that President-elect Donald J. Trump nominate Hillary Rodham Clinton as the next ambassador to Libya. This appointment will help heal the political divide within this nation.

While the undersigned know Bernie Sanders should have rightfully won the Democratic Party primary, except for Hilary’s efforts to discredit our exalted leader, and that he would now be the President-elect. We fully accept the legitimacy of the election and support Mr. Trump as the people’s choice.

Therefore, the undersigned believe that Mrs. Clinton is best suited to become the next ambassador to Libya and should take her position not later than September 11, 2017.

The undersigned also ask that President elect Trump send John Podesta and Huma Abedin with Mrs. Clinton to Libya.

Finally, the undersigned ask that the U.S. embassy be moved from Tripoli to Benghazi in honor of former Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

Vice President-elect Pence, the leader of the Trump transition team, stated:

We are always looking for ways to reach out to our former political opponents. This effort by Bernie Sanders supporters, many of whom voted for Mr. Trump, will be given serious consideration.

ISIS in Libya in a short press release noted, “We are happy to give Mrs. Clinton the same warm reception, no pun intended, that we gave to Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi. We will keep the home fires burning until 9/11/2017.”

Mrs. Clinton’s spokesperson explained, “Mrs. Clinton appreciates the offer by those who supported Mr. Sanders during the primary. However, Mrs. Clinton has already made plans and is committed to speak in those countries in the Middle East who have generously given to the Clinton Foundation while she was the Secretary of State. Mrs. Clinton will be discussing the failures of her opponents foreign policy, even before he has one.”

A spokesman for Mr. Trump, after his meeting with President Obama, when asked about the Bernie Sanders petition replied, “It’s fitting that Bernie supporters want Hillary’s ticket punched in Libya, no pun intended. When we celebrate September 11, 2017 we are sure there will be some fireworks in Benghazi, no pun intended.”

    The current rate for a Bill Clinton or Hilliary Clinton speech for The Clinton Foundation, especially in the Middle East $911 #priceless
