Vladimir was not happy with what Tillerson said about Russia and the recent assassination attempts by their government in the UK.

That and Tillerson calling him a moron probably didn't help.

Trump reminds me of the Otto character in a Fish Called Wanda.

They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

Also out, Servite grad and Trump personal aide John McEntee. Seems there was something in his past hindering his security clearance.

For all his shortcomings with running the State Department, I'll miss Tillerson. He seemed like the only one there with any integrity or who knew what he was doing.

Tillerson found out he had gotten fired via a Tweet.

It reminded me of the time my daughter's boyfriend dumped her via a text message.

The boyfriend was 17 at the time.

I guess that's how things are done these days.

Tillerson doesn't thank Trump in post-firing speech

Tillerson praised State Department officials and Defense Department staff for their work during his tenure, while also thanking members of the military and the American people.

But Tillerson didn't not mention Trump by name, only referring once to the president.

“I received a call today from the president of the United States a little after noon time from Air Force One, and I’ve also spoken to White House chief of staff [John] Kelly to ensure we have clarity about the days ahead,” Tillerson said. "What is most important is to ensure an orderly and smooth transition during a time that the country continues to face significant policy and national security challenges."


He's probably relieved.

And minutes later he was hired by the Trump re-election campaign as a senior adviser.

One aspect of all the turnover in Trump's inner circles...He must not fear that any of them will sing like canaries after he fires them. Why do you think that is? Could it be that there is no there there to worry about?
