A journalist asks her to confirm or deny that she was appointed or will be appointed as ambassador to aliens and she denied it. But that is probably only plausible deniability. Later, when she’s appointed, she can say she wasn’t aware it was being planned.
Sorry, I can’t import the video. If anyone can tell me how to import a non-Youtube video, I’d be grateful.
