Good for Tillerson not to take the bait.
A simple “No I didn’t” would have been a good denial.
Did you call Trump a moron?
I did the job that—
Did you call Trump a moron?????????
You’re goddamn right I did!!
Or maybe I didn’t.
Media playing the tiresome game of lets you and him fight. They dont give a crap about truth. It pushes their narrative and ratings. Thats all that matters.
Look, in Tillerson and Trump you have two guys with BIG egos and who are very used to telling people to “jump”. Do you think it’s always going to be peaches and cream? How about your own work site always harmony.
Just another attempt to divide and conquer.
Who was AT THAT MEETING who reported that e called Trump a moron?
There could not have been that many people...
The correct answer to such a petty media question is “Yes, I called him a moron right after he called me a douchebag, then we fake slapped each other around...is there any other earth shattering issues you need an answer to?”
Better yet - JUST STOP TALKING TO THE MEDIA
While I’m not the YUGGEST fan of Tillerson, I definitely would rather have him there instead of some career, Radical Leftist Diplomat that hates America(of which, there are many in the State Dept).
I don’t know what he knows nor do I have the responsibilities that he does, so I’m not going to spout.....If I were him, this is what I would do....crap, because I’m not him, I don’t do what he does and I don’t know what he knows.
He’s a man, that at one point, ran a multinational, billion dollar company. He is the kind of guy that expects and demands results. He is the kind of guy that doesn’t have time for the petty BS that the Leftist media, plays 24/7. I would imagine that in his former life, if an issue came up at Exxon and he tasked someone to handle it, they either handled it or their ID cards taken away as they were escorted out of the building. I doubt there was any way to pass the buck, delay or obfuscate their incompetence like a career diplomat or civil servant can.
I’m quite sure that there are times he’d like to walk into that crowd of reporters and smack the living daylights out of some of them, especially when he’s repeatedly asked the same ridiculous questions.
Looks like he’s finally on his way out now. Trump can choose, probably has, a better person for the job
If Tillerson said this he needs to resign. Trump is not a moron, even if some of the people around him like Mattis are.
Not sure which media narrative to go with.
1) Trump is a thin-skinned, insecure person who would fire anyone on the spot for calling him a moron.
2) Trump is an authoritarian who will only work with people who think like him and do what he demands. So he’d never hire anyone in the first place who could possibly call him a moron.
Or maybe the media has been wrong and Trump is a good manager who wants people to disagree with him, and listens to people with more expertise, and doesn’t mind when subordinates have strong feelings in disagreement with him. Plus, Trump’s able to get past emotional disagreements, even name-calling ,and focus on results as long as everyone has the same goals even if different paths to get there.
Hillary, being a thick-skinned/strong leader, would have fired the subordinate on the spot, so that must be the right thing to do. /sarc
Trump does not want “yes” men and women. Of course he’s going to disagree with his cabinet and vice versa. The left does not understand passionate debate as they are all mental and emotional robot midgets who’s highest social skill is pushing buttons.
They are all united in the desire to make America great again. If the route is sometimes messy, Trump and his team can deal with it.
Reporter: Secretary Tillerson, can you give us more on Trump’s collusion with Russia.
Tillerson: i cannot give you more on Trump.
Reporter: You just called trump a moron.
His answer sounds like he probably said it. And he hasn’t cleaned out state. And he let the homos tale over the boy scouts.
No loyalty to this dude for me. Sorry.
Usual and customary Fake News and Bullshit from the Nothing But Crap network. Pitiful morons.
Proper answer: “I don’t use the word, moron, to describe people even when the person really is a moron like my predecessors, John Kerry and Hillary Clinton.”
If Tilly Boy doesn’t have the State Dept. stop stone-walling on denying visas to turd world countries that won’t take their criminals back, fire his weeping a$$.
Solution: John Bolton SecState, Andrew McCarthy AG
IOW, he did.
