Kansas Governor Sam Brownback made a mess of Kansas with his application of big tax cuts and trickle-down economics. His strategy failed, and he needed an escape route.
Trump rescued him by making him an ambassador to no country in particular.
He will be in charge of International Religious Stuff.
He got out of town one step ahead of the posse.
You might say he is the worst governor in the nation, but then there is always Chris Christie, Rick Scott, Scott Walker, Rick Snyder. Lots of competition.
