    Pompeo has policy ideas more in line with Trump's IMO. Tillerson was to uppity and did not respect Trump enough to be long in staying. His departure has been long expected so this doesn't surprise me at all.

    Predictably, the more hackish types will say this firing is more evidence of Trump / Russia collusion. I think this had more to do with Trump wanting or needing a more experienced person in the diplomatic arena with the upcoming meetings with North Korea.


    I'd like to know what damage he has done according to all of these so called experts and who these people are.

    Tillerson is speaking now
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    What was Trump supposed to do about the Russian poison attack? Nuke Russia? Control yourself.

    Actually the "dancing scuffs" are actually scuffs made by the left collapsing because Tillerson didn't blurt out

    Which cases? What's your criteria for one source is legit and another isn't? How can you challenge an un-named source? So many questions.

    When you work for the President you do what he wants or you quit or get fired. I'd like to hear anyone say someone working for them can do or say whatever they please. They'd be lying.
