He gets fired...Democrats' response?

He was too hard on Russia!...

That's a skewed response. Even if you're "easy on Russia" you speak out on international assasinations. That is if you're human and humane and care about this country.

Now some have speculated that he was let go for calling out Russia for poisoning an ex-spy, but hopefully we'll find out what happened and why soon enough.
He's a quick study. Hope I'm using that correctly. He caught on that it was best to listen to the career staff in the state dept.

Rex was another alpha, the adult in the room and Donald isn't used to people who don't placate him.....


Well, he hired a new yes man....

Fresh meat, I can't imagine the pressure of the cabinet working environment knowing that the boss is insecure and shows zero loyalty....

hardly the issue.,,; Although competent, connected and persuasive, Tillerson did not see the world as did THE Donald.

I'll put it this way. There are no vegans on the Board of directors at Hardie's

It was Donald's prerogative....


He loves yes men, no doubt about it.....

Of course. All multi billion dollar corporations are built on teams of "yes men."

Dude, if that were true we could all be rich. Just hire folks that agree with us1005 and the money would just roll in.
No matter how talented you are, no matter how much you have contributed to the organization's success, calling your boss a "moron" in public will get you fired.

Some people with principals have the stones to say that and Rex is an alpha like Donald, got to respect that......

And when it may be true, its even sweeter......

I don't recall ever saying any less of Tillerson. Of course he is an Alpha. Alphas don't just say yes. They don't become yes men.


I do recall many on the left complaining about Tillerson. Now he is somehow an indispensable genius .????

Is that stoney enough

But that doesn't mean Tillerson's differences with the President should be ignored. They weren't. but when the President says, after conferring with the "team," what the policy will be, that's what Tillerson should implement. If he can't, then he should resign.

If he speaks for the President, and the nation, best not to call his boss a moron.

Putin chose Tillerson to be SOS because it was assumed he would sell out his country like tRUmp has. But, Tillerson in the end turned out not to be the traitor he was presumed to be, and actually resisted the Putin/tRUmp agenda where he was able. And resisted the Kushner / tRUmp abuse of the White House for monetary gain. For this he was fired.

He also called tRUmp a moron.
