State Department Staffer Used Embellished Resume, Fake Time Magazine Cover | Andrea Mitchell | MSNBC 1


A senior Trump administration official has embellished her résumé with misleading claims about her professional background — even creating a fake Time magazine cover with her face on it — raising questions about her qualifications to hold a top position at the State Department. Mina Chang, the deputy assistant secretary in the State Department's Bureau of Conflict and Stability Operations, falsely claims to be a Harvard grad, and exaggerated the scope of her nonprofit's work. Aired on 11/12/19.

  1. She got the idea from Trump! He’s got at least 2 or 3 fake Time Magazine covers with his orange face on it.

  2. Everything about this administration is corrupted and fake starting from the top president himself

  3. Trump : I will hire only the smartest and best people !

  4. She graduated from Trump University.

    • If so, then it was a class of one and she slept her way to her degree…

      @William H Why deny it? What’s wrong with you? Don’t you support the rights of every American citizen? Let me guess….you don’t want women or Blacks to vote, right?

    • @88Gibson LesPaul Why deny what? Are you attempting to insult me by insinuating that I’m CREEPSEXUAL? I do support the rights of all people and because I don’t support the LGBTQ agenda doesn’t make me a racist. HOMOSEXUALS have the same rights as everyone else and I support that however I don’t support them having more rights than men who don’t SLAM HOG.

    • She is Korean

  5. She and Trump are made for each other. Delusional Liars!

    Charlatans and con artists are the only ones The King of Cons will hire.

    She was hired because she’s a fake just like the fake president!

      @Mohsin Khan I am not dumb enough, because i didn’t vote for Trump. This is not my fault, I voted for sanity and the person’s qualifications that best fits the job.!

      @Jerbo 1 Exactly. That’s why Nikki Haley could buck Trump when others couldn’t.

    • @Rob Hat massageing

    • @Calvin & Hobbes typical kgal

    • Marilyn Reallon Everyone check this out! Get the actual facts here!

      Do the actual research yourself and don’t just drink the kool aid. She never lied and has been honest from the start. I just Cant believe the news is being so biased and BLATANTLY LYING and twisting facts just to make anyone that’s been hired under Trumps staff to look bad. Just bcuz you’ve been hired by the trump administration doesn’t mean you have to like or even agree with his views or politics.

      Trumps a store owner and Minas the janitor that cleans the store. Just cuz the owner of the store loves the color red doesn’t mean the janitor has to like red in order to be hired for that job. Because it’s a job people~ and she never lied about anything~ The janitor has one focus. And Minas focus is helping children in war zones and children in impoverished countries etc

    This is what the republican party is today, nothing but frauds.

    • A nobody with no credential on Time cover. Ya, right! Didn’t she think that people will find out? Oh, well! I get it. She can’t think. But why is she still working there? She falsified documents, lied about the Time magazine, she’s such an embarrassment!

    • richard mcmorrow | November 12, 2019 at 5:26 PM | Reply

      @Shanti David tRumps best of the best liars.

    • They’ve been frauds ever since Reagan, good sir!

    • @richard mcmorrow ya, narcissists are incredibly good at lying! i worked with one. she could tell the most outlandish lie to you while staring dead into your eyes. and you would almost buy it! however, i don’t buy any of trump’s lies, but he is really good at it. terrible thing to be good at!

  9. Funny on the top of the Time cover it reads “The Perils of Plastic.” How appropriate.

    She’s an attractive women, and the sexually stunted drips of the GOP bought right in. Just like Butina. Suckers one and all, and creeps to boot.

  11. She lied and cheated. That’s usually good for a promotion in the Trump administration.

  12. Those lips got her to where she is, suckin’ it! I had my life combed through for my security clearance, this is an absolute joke. We are supposed to have confidence in our Government why?

  13. Hmmm let’s see, a highly attractive woman with an incredibly fake resume is given a position in the Trump administration. So who’s surprised??

    • Calvin & Hobbes | November 12, 2019 at 7:47 PM | Reply

      I wouldn’t quick to say she’s attractive. Her face is fake too! You can totally tell the cosmetic surgery on that face of hers! Don’t forget! The magazine cover is photoshopped and air brushed!

    • @Virginia Evans Ivanka’s low iq pulls in any form of attractiveness with the force of a black hole. Frankly i cant see how anyone would take her seriously if her last name wasn’t Trump

    • PG 89 <<< She must have allowed Trumpy a quick grab of her wet p🐱ssy....

    • Steven Castellanos | November 14, 2019 at 8:16 AM | Reply

      @MyEyesBled I wouldn’t put it past Trump to do that with Betsy DeVos.😉🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • What a minute… Are y’all talking ’bout the 1st Lady? 👀

  14. “How did she get away with it?”

    She graduated from the Ivanka school of “I’m hot so my criminality doesn’t count”

  15. She’s dirty, fake, and a liar trump’s requirements to join his team.

  16. Fake president, Fake “billionaire” Fake Employee(s) Fake patriotism.

  17. George Costanza:

    “It’s not a lie if you believe it.”

  18. It’s frightening to imagine how much Intel she has already obtained, and who she gave it to. It’s impossible no one knew she wasn’t properly vetted.

    • Pink and Black Girl | November 12, 2019 at 3:39 PM | Reply

      exactly my thoughts. She could be a chinese or russian spy., with actual knowledge of the job she is doing but no qualifications from anywhere in America.

  19. In this administration anyone can get hired under false pretenses.

  20. “Embellishments” is not the word. “Lies” is the word to use.
