    The CEOs are all going to be replaced by Swamp People, because Trump’s friends can’t handle the Swamp.


    This is turning into Monty Python and the Holy Grail credits!

    I feel bad for Tillerson. To be fired without warning and having to hear about it on Twitter of all things. There's no sense of honor in El Stupido. If you're going to tell someone you're out, at least do it man-to-man and give that man some dignity to walk out.

    Don't feel bad about him; he was already calling El Cheeto "moron" before he was fired. Now El Moron has given him all the incentive Tillerson needed to really speak his mind about him.

    Should be interesting!

    even worse: he was an awful SoS but one of the most reasonable members of the administration.

    Watch this:



    Everyone today is talking about his views on the Iran deal, North Korea, insulting Trump behind the scenes, etc. I agree with Cenk that it's also, (if not exclusively) bc the Russian Exxon Mobil deal was officially ended a few days ago. That seemed to be the only reason he got the gig in the first place, and now a few days after that deal falls through, he's out? Timing seems too obvious to be coincidental. In that vid above from March 8th, he literally called it that he would be out very soon. And now here we are. The guy's got good instincts.

    Except Tillerson had to give up all his ties to Exxon Mobile to get this job and we have had sanctions against Russia since Crimea and Congress voted to impose MORE sanctions, and those oil deals have been dead since *2014*

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/money...ons/384415002/

    Tillerson was asked last night about the poisoned Russians:

    Next morning, poof, he’s fired via Twitter.

    Not exactly accurate. Full withdrawal happened last week. Watch the video. And watch the new one posted just above as well. Tillerson was placed there strictly bc of his ties to Russia and the oil industry. There would be no reason to put him there otherwise.

    He was put there because he had a good relationship with Putin.

    And, Tillerson wasn’t in the Swamp. He was outside of politics, and the initial Cabinet was FILLED with CEOs and Corporate types, see this:

    https://www.politico.com/story/2016/...f-state-232581

    But Tillerson was taken out because he just went against Putin.

    https://twitter.com/krassenstein/sta...936440832?s=21

    This isn’t about oil (Trump isn’t interested in oil) or only about money.

    It’s more likely about the Russians having something REALLY bad on Trump.

    A few weeks ago, Putin did a news conference saying he has nuclear missiles that will defy anti-nuclear aircraft and missiles, and he showed an animated simulation of said missiles heading directly to Mar-A-Lago.

    Trump: Crickets

    A few days ago, SoS Tillerson was advised that a former Russian spy and his daughter (British citizens) were nearly killed by nerve gas that only the Russian government possesses.

    Tillerson said this is very serious, there should be consequences.

    Trump said maybe someone else did it.

    Then he fired Tillerson.

    Trump is a Putin puppet because he HAS to be.

    Some real shady shit is going down

    Trump STILL refuses to initiate the sanctions against Russia that Congress unanimously enacted.

    Read this: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2...-trump-dossier

    People have been predicting that Tillerson would be fired for MONTHS; the WH has a revolving door. But the morning after Rex’s Press statement on Putin’s nerve gas? And Rex says, publicly, that he was blindsided? Found out via Twitter? This decision was just made by the Dufus.

    Let's also remember that Tillerson did not want the job. At all. The reason he took it? His wife said God wanted him to. His own words. You can't make this shit up.

    I feel bad about the manner in which he was fired (from what I read, a vague phone call from Kelly on Friday that said "watch for a tweet about you next week"). But I actually feel happy for him. He never wanted this job, and I think it's going to be an extraordinary relief for him to go back to living an extremely comfortable life with his family and not have to deal with the extraordinary bullshit that is the Trump White House.

    Kelly's on the chopping block, too. So is McMaster. And Jared.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Pence isn't Trump's running mate for 2020.
