It has been announced this morning that President Trump has fired U.S. Secretary Of State Rex Tillerson. He will be replaced by CIA Director Mike Pompeo.

Interestingly, yesterday, Rex Tillerson named Russia as the perpetrator of the nerve agent attack on two individuals recently in London. Donald Trump's White House failed to name Russia as the likely perpetrator of that attack. Hmmmm.

News continues to break on the Tillerson ouster.  Has Tillerson been out of step with Trump's attitudes toward Russia?

Apparently the resignation of Hope Hicks has left Trump without the glue that kept him on a stable course.

The Left hates them, criticizes them until they can use them to press forward with their agenda.

Rex Tillerson is a huge disappointment

They hated Rex Tillerson and then they don't talk much about that now. Funny how that works.

Andrea Mitchell of NBC News is reporting that Tillerson put out a series of very strong statements suggesting that Russia was involved in the poisoning of the former Russian spy in Britain, but White House mouthpiece Sarah Sanders went in the opposite direction in her briefing yesterday.

Tillerson received a call from Kelly telling him that he needed to return to Washington that there was going to be a Tweet about him soon and, he needed to be in Washington before Tweet, he then got back to Washington at about three in the morning and, the Tweet wasn't reported on until that morning. Since Tillerson doesn't Tweet or, use Twitter he didn't learn what the Tweet said until Trump called him at noon yesterday.

That's 2 this week.....also President Donald Trump’s personal assistant, John McEntee, was escorted out of the White House on Monday, two senior administration officials said. The cause of the firing was an unspecified security issue, said a third White House official with knowledge of the situation.

And deporables see nothing wrong with the way this WH admin functions....sad, really sad.

This isn't a presidency, this is a farce and it's sad that this is the new normal for the President of the United States.

McEntee was escorted out of the White House on Monday without being allowed to collect his belongings, including his jacket, The Journal reported. McEntee joined the president's small team three years ago during the earliest days of the campaign.

"It's not going to be great for morale," a White House official told The Journal about McEntee's firing.

The Trump campaign released a statement soon after McEntee's firing from the White House announcing that McEntee will join its ranks, serving as a "senior advisor for campaign operations."

There's that blind spot again obscured from the Left's vision.

President Donald Trump fired his longtime personal assistant, John McEntee, who is reportedly under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security for financial crimes.

If he had not been fired and the Left found out about this investigation, they would be all over it for not firing him, just like the were over John Kelly not firing Rob Porter.  Either way, the Left would have used it against Trump.

I have to admit that I (and by no means only I) misread Rex.  He had all the indicators of being another Putin puppet in this completely bent administration but came out bluntly with the rest of our intel heads in calling out past and present Russian sabotage of our elections.  That's the main reason Shitbag's getting rid of him.   He actually told the truth and his patriotism trumped politics.  Still, his biggest problem was the total lack of experience and that's a job that can't be learned as an internship.  And in his true cowardly fashion, Shitbag didn't fire him in person.  What a chickenshit.  He rightly ragged some  Republiscum for being afraid of the NRA and then completely pussed out after the NRA got a private meeting with him.

You know the reason Putin had him appointed, was all about the $ , oil, and sanctions, so in other words, the $.

He didn't play well, with others though. Never liked him, and still wouldn't trust him, but if Trumpp had to fire him, he has some Patriotism in him.

I have to admit that I (and by no means only I) misread Rex.

I did, too.  I think there was a possibility in the beginning that he was worried about the affect that Russian sanctions were having on Exxon Mobil in regard to the Sakhalin off-shore drilling sites.  Although he had already stepped down as CEO, his heart was still there...along with $2,000,000 in EM stock.  

If I had to guess, I bet he is freaking relieved to be done with it.  I don't think he had any idea that Trump was such a ridiculous caricature of a person. The biggest difference between Tillerson and Trump is that he became successful the old-fashioned way; he earned it.  Trump was handed his wealth on a silver platter.

In any event, this is going to be one of Trump's biggest regrets later down the road.  This almost as bad as firing Mueller would have been.  In a White House full of idiots and ding-a-lings, Rex Tillerson turned out to be one of the good guys.

This makes it three this week - 

The purge at the State Department isn’t stopping with Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson. Stephen Goldstein, the undersecretary of state for public diplomacy, was fired after putting out a statement apparently contradicting the White House’s version of why Mr. Tillerson was fired.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if when Trump got so damn confused as to who to believe as he says so many different things simultaneously (I've got to get him to learn me that one) and needs to fire those who contradict him, wound up being like "Joshua" in War Games, and decided the only winning move, was not to play....

I have heard multiple conflicting stories as to when Tillerson was fired. Some say it was last Friday, some say Tillerson only heard the news this morning.

Chickenshit Trump didn't have the nerve or decency to even call him up to tell him much less do it face to face.

Tillerson only heard the news this morning.

He has been in Africa, and returned this morning a few hours before Trump's tweet, which coincidentally, is how he found out he was fired.  Or it's possible I'm making this up.  I'll let you be the judge (while I search for the article I read and hope like crazy it wasn't the National Inquirer or an equally shitty publication).

I've been listening to this crap all day and apparently either Mattis or Kelly, or both tried their best to get him to step aside on Friday.

Tillerson refused, apparently repeating what he has reportedly told POTUS before 

'If you're going to fire me, do it to my face'.

or to Kelly,

"If he wants me gone, he'll (have to) fire me"

Unlike in his stint on a "reality" show, Herr Drumpf doesn't actually have the balls to fire anyone in person.

Rightwingers think they've caught us liberals being suddenly "in love" with Rex when the truth is we are no such thing.  Let me state my view of him  more clearly:  he was a lousy choice for SoS and he was a bad one; didn't know what he was doing although somewhat to his credit he knew he didn't know (and he did try, I guess);  he's leaving the DoS in shambles.*  But over time he also showed a few signs of decency.  I believe he was truly disgusted by Shitbag's grotesque speech to the Boy Scouts.  He also gets credit for realizing pretty early into the Shitbag's first year that he was, indeed, a "fucking moron" (never denied calling him that by the way).  So I raised my initial grade for him from an F to a C- (the "gentleman's C") out of a sense of pity, mostly.

*of course it didn't help that Shitbag made his life a waking nightmare

Well said, my thoughts as well.

This should come as no surprise-- there's been a lot of tension between Trump and Tillerson for some time: 'Tensions escalate after Tillerson calls Trump 'moron'

So why did Trump wait so long to fire him?

Based on past behaviour, its obvious Trump waits for the opportune time to fire people-- or to otherwise create attention-getting  headlines. (In this case the actual timing was obviously due to Trump's desire to distract from a possible major loss in the special election in Pennsylvania.

The actual timing of the Tillerson firing was obviously due to Trump's desire to distract from a possible major loss in the special election in Pennsylvania:

Election Results for Pennsylvania special election on March 13, 2018


Conor Lamb, Rick Saccone in tight race Wednesday night


Democrats, looking to take back the majority in Congress next year, are hoping a high-profile win in Pennsylvania's 18th District will give them a boost in the heart of Trump country. Republicans are hoping to avoid an embarrassing defeat in a district that has voted Republican since 2002. (LINK)
