Ambassador to Panama resign citing inability to work with Trump.

Courtesy of The Independent:  

The US ambassador to Panama has resigned from his post on principle, writing in a resignation letter to the State Department that he can no longer serve the Trump administration, according to Reuters. 

The US State Department confirmed the departure of John D Feeley, saying he decided to "retire for personal reasons, as of 9 March this year". 

"As a junior foreign service officer, I signed an oath to serve faithfully the President and his administration in an apolitical fashion, even when I might not agree with certain policies.

"My instructors made clear that if I believed I could not do that, I would be honour-bound to resign. That time has come," Mr Feeley said.

According to The Independent Feeley made this decision before the recent "shithole" comments were made public.

I would assume that once he heard that it only made this decision easier.

Now we have to wonder how much longer other ambassadors will be willing remain on the job while carrying the shame of being associated with the Trump Administration?

    Kudos to Ambassador Feeley! Unfortunately, I don't expect many others to follow suit, but they are the ones that have to look themselves in the mirror.

    Am I wrong to hope for a SOTU address to a half-filled room? I know you said that you were going to watch it, Gryph, but no way in double hockeys can I.

    C&L" "Pelosi said some interesting things about those five white guys -- you know, are they going to open a hamburger stand next or what? And that is not going over with some -- Steny Hoyer -- Nancy Pelosi's joke didn't go over so well."

    Wallace replied, "No, it was a dumb remark." He brought up the idea that Dems use identity politics as a wedge- yada, yada.

    He continued, "It was a dumb remark, but I gotta say, in all fairness, it’s a parking ticket compared to what the president allegedly said."

    I've never heard somebody using the phrase "hamburger stands" in a racist context of five white guys, but to Fox News that was good enough."

    Penn labeled Trump “an enemy of Americans, Republicans, Democrats, Independents and every new child born” in the article, published online Friday.

    “An enemy of mankind. He is indeed an enemy of the state,”
