Tillerson Needs to Stay

Tillerson Needs to Stay October 4, 2017

RocketManI posted one hour ago that NBC reported this morning that U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson attended Pentagon meeting this summer in which he called his boss President Donald Trump “a moron” and when the press questioned him about it just hours ago, he did not deny it and replied that he would not address such petty things. That is a tacit admission. Now, the question arises whether or not President Trump will feel it necessary to tell Tillerson, “You’re fired!”

If that happens, that is just one more scary scenario into which this narcissistic president is throwing the USA. We need Rex Tillerson to stay because he is a much cooler head than Donald Trump. The State Department admitted days ago that it had opened three channels of communication with North Korean governmental authorities.

Eleven days ago, Trump tweeted, “Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won’t be around much longer.” WHAT! And as I said in that post an hour ago, Trump tweeted three days ago, “I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man.” When I learned that, I thought surely this is a strategy Trump and Tillerson are conducting. Nobody could be that stupid, I thought, to be calling Kim a derogatory name, then threatening to bomb the hell out of the country or worse yet, nuke it, and then tweet that Tillerson is wasting his time trying to negotiate. I thought they must have planned that Trump would speak outrageously, trying to put pressure on North Korea, while Tillerson would come along more cooly and try to negotiate, as if they could get a more acceptable response from North Korea this way. Not so according to this report, that Tillerson called Trump “a moron.”

Such division in the White House is frightening because it involves nuclear weapons. Special counsel Robert Mueller and Congress–HELP! This president needs to go.
