Tillerson is a drama queen now enjoying favor with the liberals and NeverTrumpers.
People were right when they said he enabled faggots in the Boy Scouts, apparently.
The deep state has discovered Tillersons price.
Rex was the third most incompetent and lazy SoS in history, just after Hellary and Kerry the Klown.
Thankfully we had a strategic genius of unsurpassed wisdom and courage in the WH keeping things running !
Donald Trump is a real man.
This time, no tea for the Tillerson.
(ancient Cat Steven’s reference).
Sometimes Trump can be ineloquent - but you know where he stands and that is rare in a politician - Reagan was smoother at it, Truman told people exactly what he thought - nothing artificial. You see it in the Bush funeral - while I thought it was well-done and gracious, there is a reason why Democrats loved him - he was ineffectual and really didn’t like the folks like us who voted him there. Trump strikes back when some detractor runs his mouth, which is just fine with me; the real mistake was that he shouldn’t have hired this boob in the first place.
All the same people who hated and bagged on T Rex will be calling him a heinous and the voice of authority now.
It’s incredible how some of these “respected” individuals achieve prominence in the corporate World when they are known screwups by virtually every one of their subordinates.
As far as Tillerson saying he had to talk Trump out of illegal deals; isn’t that one of the jobs of aides and secretaries, to keep the President informed?
Tillerson did not do Exxon any favors as CEO. Darren Woods is having to work very hard to put Exxon back to where it needs to be and it will take time due to the damage Tillerson did to that fine company.
An honorable man would keep his mouth shut and not gossip about things. One would expect as a former CEO that he would not act up, but goes to show you.
Every one of you misses the point. The point is not that Trump is “man enough” to tell it like it is. (rolls eyes)
The point is, he - TRUMP - is the person hiring all of these “dumb as a rock” people to Cabinet positions. What does it say about his judgement? THAT, is the point.
I expect that Trump is a little frustrated with the slimy backstabbing environment in DC, nothing is worse then being betrayed by someone you trusted. I’m sure it is hard to find good people in DC. But I must admit, I am a little disappointment Trump has not done better with his appointments. That was one of the reasons I supported him, I believed he hired only the best people. Not that I don’t support him now, I still do. But damn, are there not better candidates out there?
Tillerson was recommended to Trump by Gates, another Bushie. He proved to be low energy and a captive of the bureaucracy.
> Trump responds. <
And poorly, I think. Tillerson might well be “lazy”, and “dumb as a rock”. But Trump is the guy who hired him in the first place. And Trump was not aware of these serious flaws?
A better Trump response - regardless of what Tillerson said - would have something along the lines of “The guy underperformed, hugely. So I had to let him go.”
Trump doesn’t trash people unless they provoke him into it. I don’t recall Trump dishing on Tillerson prior to this. Like he didn’t backdoor a bunch of criticism to trash Tillerson weasel-style after replacing him. But now Tillerson has crossed a line and Trump fires back with both barrels in full public view.
Noticed that most of the catty schoolgirl gossip (called “leaks”) from the White House stopped after Tillerson and Priebus were canned.
Trump has made himself look petty... again. I really wish he would not do that. If he didn’t do this he would be a really great man. He could defend himself without being so much like a 12 year-old.
Tillerson already took things down a notch and could have been snubbed without taking it down another one.
I thought there was something weird about a former head of Exxon-Mobil joining forces with the environmentalist whackos.
Dumb as a rock, lazy? He’ll make a great Democratic president if he was blacker.
