On Monday, the U.S. Ambassador to Qatar raised some eyebrows with this tweet:
Increasingly difficult to wake up overseas to news from home, knowing I will spend today explaining our democracy and institutions.

Perhaps the ambassador should look for another job where explaining her country to foreigners is not the job. https://t.co/9YV4B7XShw

Ambassador Smith tried to spin her comment last night:
Diplomats explain & defend our political system.Can be tough when partisan acrimony so high, but there is still no greater country. #USA ??

Maybe that’s a good idea just in case.
If you do not like your job or feel unable to represent us please resign. https://t.co/OsMCxd6rbb

It never should be "tough" to defend our nation to Qatari leadership – Who does she think she is? https://t.co/Ttz5oWgy8V
