NEW: Mina Chang, a senior Trump admin. official, has embellished her resume with misleading claims about her professional background, raising questions about her qualifications to hold a top position at the US State Dept., an investigation finds.
Oh my. NBC reports that , a senior State Dept official, embellished her resume, claimed falsely to be a Harvard grad and created a fake TIME magazine cover with her face on it.
Another lying, unqualified scammer occupying an important job in this administration. These jobs matter. Staffed by qualified, dedicated people, they can avert conflict, drive reform, promote freedom. These liars are making Americans & others less safe.
This story is wild. Senior Trump official embellished resume, had face on fake TIME cover via
The Trump administration's Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Conflict and Stability Operations is a literal con-artist. No degree. No genuine professional experience. Just a failed music career, a fake TIME Magazine cover and a scam nonprofit.
The photoshopped Time cover is funny, but it really seems like the Trump admin almost put a straight-up Instagram grifter in charge of a $1 billion budget. Everything she says about her background is a wild lie
The fabrications on her CV are comically, absurdly, preposterously bad. They're literally at the level of, say, shouting "F**K ALL OF YOU IN THERE!" from the window of your cab on FDR drive and then claiming you have "addressed the UN General Assembly".
Senior Trump administration official Mina Chang embellished her résumé with misleading claims about her professional background, including a false claim that she was a Harvard grad and a fake Time magazine cover with her face on it.
Oh dear. Who fakes a Time Magazine cover? It's so easy to check!
finally...a high-level grifter in government who looks like me. representation matters
Unclear to me how President Trump manages to find so many people who are both incompetent and dishonest; it's an astonishing recruitment record. The latest is a senior official who faked a Time cover with her face on it
This is truly nutty: A serving State Department DAS in the Trump admin created a fake Time magazine cover with her face on it, lied about graduating from Harvard & vastly exaggerated the scope of her nonprofit's work.
If this person can brazenly lie and become a Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, imagine what a trained foreign intelligence officer can do?

Wow, Trump state department official appears to be charlatan with phony resume.
Ok I am confused by this. Her State Department headshot and the headshot on the fake Time cover are the same. But she only joined the department in 2018-2019, and she displays the fake Time cover in 2017. So is the State Department photo also photoshopped?

Holy .... DAS at State CSO fabricates almost all relevant experiences. Unclear if she even has graduated college.
What a completely insane story
“Chang was originally considered for an even more senior government post in which she would have overseen the U.S. Agency for International Development's work in Asia. She would have been responsible for a budget of more than $1 billion.” via
Apparently all I needed was a template for Time Magazine.
In case the career people at the State Department were not sickened enough by Pompeo, this is the fabulous new political staff they have to support.
"Senior Trump official embellished resume, had face on fake Time cover -- and it wasn't Donald J. Trump this time!"
You have to admit that faking a TIME cover is completely on brand for a Trump appointee.
"In her State Department post, Chang, a 35-year-old from Dallas, helps oversee efforts to prevent conflicts from erupting in politically unstable countries. She earns a six-figure salary in a bureau with a $6 million budget."

I know this isn't the point, but does NBC News think "alumna" is not a word?
A completely fake resume, including a fake Time magazine cover and a fake non-profit did none of the projects it claimed. A perfect fit with the Trump administration.
