It seems like Secretary of State Tillerson is just about fed up with this administration.

Don't worry Rexi, your still my man.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s frustrations with the White House have been building for months. Last Friday, they exploded. 

The normally laconic Texan unloaded on Johnny DeStefano, the head of the presidential personnel office, for torpedoing proposed nominees to senior State Department posts and for questioning his judgment.

Tillerson also complained that the White House was leaking damaging information about him to the news media, according to a person familiar with the meeting. Above all, he made clear that he did not want DeStefano’s office to “have any role in staffing” and “expressed frustration that anybody would know better” than he about who should work in his department — particularly after the president had promised him autonomy to make his own decisions and hires, according to a senior White House aide familiar with the conversation. 

The episode stunned other White House officials gathered in chief of staff Reince Priebus’ office, leaving them silent as Tillerson raised his voice. In the room with Tillerson and DeStefano were Priebus, top Trump aide Jared Kushner and Margaret Peterlin, the secretary of state’s chief of staff. 

The encounter, described by four people familiar with what happened, was so explosive that Kushner approached Peterlin afterward and told her that Tillerson’s outburst was completely unprofessional, according to two of the people familiar with the exchange, and told her that they needed to work out a solution.

I would not be at all surprised if Tillerson were not the first administration official to get the hell out of Dodge, without being fired first.

Of course knowing Trump he would likely fabricate a story to make it appear that he did indeed fire him.

One can hardly blame Tillerson, after all he was the head of one of the largest corporations on the planet, and has now been reduced to a mere figure head while Trump's snot nosed son-in-law does his job instead.

I can only imagine what the morale must be like in the White House right now.

It must be like a scene from "Lord of the Flies."

    Look at how many major personnel problems and staff reshuffles this administration has had just 6 months in.

    It's just another sign of how difficult rump is to work with.

    Someone from Trump's inner circle accusing another person of being 'unprofessional' is just absurd and the height of hypocrisy.

    I have zero sympathy for any of the members who joined this vile administration. They are all traitors, in my book. Everyone knew he was unhinged, not too bright yet they hopped on board willingly. They all have their own agenda - making themselves rich at any cost. I hope they all go down with the repulsive pretender-in-chief.

    THIS is who Trump considers a reputable journalist:

    Alex Jones invited Robert David Steele onto his 'Infowars' show to discuss how NASA is using kidnapped children as slaves on its Mars colony.

    “We actually believe that there is a colony on Mars that is populated by children who were kidnapped and sent into space on a 20-year ride,” said Steele. “So that once they get to Mars they have no alternative but to be slaves on the Mars colony.”

    Jones claims that NASA turns off their probes every time they fly over the colonies to hide their nefarious actions.

    The scariest part of this ridiculous story? Steele used to be a major in the Marines and an operations officer in the CIA!

    But apparently this isn't anything like that terrible fake news that you get on all the major networks.

    Kudos to Secretary Tillerson for having the balls to stand up and put those two entitled snot-nosed punks in their place!! Unlike trump and his "boy blunder" son-in-law, both of whom had silver spoons up their respective asses, Mr. Tillerson had more humble beginnings.

    Looking at his bio, it states that he is a civil engineer who made his career at Exxon (now Exxon Mobil), and rose through the ranks to be their CEO. He also volunteered with the Boy Scouts of America, just as his late father did, and was their National Director.

    Unlike trump and his dysfunctional misfits, Mr. Tillerson severed all ties with Exxon Mobil when trump recruited him, citing potential conflicts of interest. However, perhaps now he realizes that he was duped and deceived by trump, who promised him autonomy within his office, but like all others who had dealings with trump, was burned.

    Maybe I do not agree with his politics, but standing up to trump's dithering and his punk-ass son-in-law was fuckin' patriotic!! I have a newfound respect for the man!! Secretary Tillerson, there is no shame in resigning from this sadministration! Just delete this sorry episode from your CV; it never happened!

    2. Did Valdez happen on Tillerson's watch?

      Was he in charge of lawsuit after lawsuit to make sure Exxon only paid pennies on the dollar in damages and squirmed out of ever attempt to get them to clean up their mess and be accountable?

      Sorry, no amount of standing up to Trump white washes his soul.

      Boy Scouts? You mean under his watch they were holding fast on their anti-LGBT stance and kicking out people of integrity who volunteered to teach our youth values

      Yeah, pass again on Tillerson. He's as evil as the rest. Just in a different way. Deplorable.

      Notice his department was the first to break tradition by skipping the Ramadan feast. Think he skipped Passover too.

      Trying the Socratic method now? You can't blame Tillerson for all that.

      Now go back and repeat your brilliant prediction that Carl Higbie will be Trump's press secretary. Nutty old bat.
