Obama bundler and nominee to be U.S. Ambassador to Argentina Noah Mamet has never been to Argentina, he revealed at his confirmation hearing Thursday.
“I haven’t had the opportunity yet to be there,” he said. “I’ve traveled pretty extensively around the world, but I haven’t yet had a chance.”
Mamet bundled $500,000 for Obama and the Democratic Party, and he’s not the only friend of the administration to recently reveal little in-depth knowledge of his new country.
CNN’s Anderson Cooper mocked Obama bundler George Tsunis and Sen. Max Baucus (D., Mont.) for their gaffe-filled confirmation hearings to be ambassadors in “The Ridiculist” portion of his show Jan. 29. Tsunis said he had never been to Norway, and Baucus called himself “no real expert on China” while being questioned about their respective diplomatic destinations.
