|Seriously? He picked me? Get out of here.|
President-elect Donald Trump has chosen Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson as secretary of state, according to NBC News. The report cited two sources close to the situation as saying Tillerson had been confirmed as Trump’s pick after earlier being floated as a top choice. It was also reportedly “very likely” that Tillerson, who has no experience in government, would be paired with former U.N. ambassador John Bolton as deputy secretary of state, NBC News reported. Tillerson has strong ties to Moscow, having secured a 2011 deal with the Kremlin to access Arctic resources in Russia. That deal was blocked, however, when U.S. sanctions against Russia came into effect for its occupation of Crimea and aggression in eastern Ukraine. Tillerson was outspoken in his criticism of the sanctions for the “broad collateral damage” they resulted in.
Great a pro-Russian anti-environmentalist, sounds like the perfect guy to help completely screw up this country's future.
And with freaking John "I hate the UN" Bolton as his deputy secretary it appears that Trump didn't even bother to try and leave any illusion that he was really ever interested in "draining the swamp."
An interesting factoid, Tillerson has NEVER worked anywhere except Exxon, where he was first hired in 1975.
So you can see that he is simply brimming over with a lack of experience.
I can't believe I am saying this out loud, but I actually cannot imagine that giving Sarah Palin this position could have really been any worse.
Either way you are getting a tragically unqualified person, who hates the planet earth, and thinks constantly raping it is a sign of affection.
