President Trump Fires Rex Tillerson
When Donald Trump was confronted by the press about the chaos in the White House, he pushed back and said, “Everybody wants to work at the White House,” and explained that he likes chaos. It wasn’t that long ago (last October) that the Donald chided Tillerson for his desire to create a dialog with North Korea with his tweet: “I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man…” But now, Trump jumps to get the meeting with the brutal dictator he maligned.
And like the chicken shit President Trump is, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was fired by phone and then again by tweet today 3-13-18: “Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job! Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service! Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the CIA, and the first woman so chosen. Congratulations to all!” It’s clear that Donald Trump doesn’t care about human feelings.
Perhaps Rex, as some reporting has suggested, was Vladimir Putin’s choice for Secretary of State because he had previously done business with Russia. Perhaps that story worried our great Orange Leader. Or maybe Trump is all pumped up by his cronies’ pronouncement from the House Intelligence Committee of “No Collusion.” Maybe the Donald was more confident today and just had to fire someone.
Was Rex too outspoken and honest for Mr. Trump? It just might be that Rex was suited only for business and not for the task of international affairs and foreign policy. This is just another argument that soils the notion that “great” business people in government are better than experienced political operatives.
Rather than focus on the imaginary “reasoning” of a person like Trump, we need to observe how all this turnover looks to the whole world; it’s bad. Trump is impossible to work for and that is why all his employees and lovers are forced to sign non-disclosure agreements. His legal eagles build barriers around this man trying to keep him safe and aboveboard. Trump doesn’t fit the mold of a presidential person, whether in government or a public company, so why do we expect him to follow the rules?
While his legal team is distracted by Stormy Daniels and her desire to tell her story about an immoral affair 12 years ago with then citizen Trump, the special counsel continues his quest to find out how Trump has operated in business, campaign and life. The House Republicans may have thrown Trump a PR bone with their FAKE vindication announcement, and the Democrats, because of their minority status, can do little except conduct more interviews. The House investigation into Russian meddling has been nothing but a joke. Politicians cannot be open and honest and good judges in these matters.
It’s rather ironic that Trump’s firing of Tillerson eclipsed this Republican stunt. This administration has so much dirty laundry, and the news cycle moves quickly, so it won’t be long before we find out who broke the law and when. And then, those same House Republicans will have to decide whether they are loyal to country or party. Few have the backbone to deal with the truth.
If Trump cannot work with someone, there is no need for the taxpayers to pay them. Trump continues to believe that he, and only he, can fix all the ills in the world. If you work for him, you know that you must make him feel good or get out of his way. Those who kiss his ass seem to have his ear. What a childish person we have as the chief executive of such a great country. Trump is dangerous to himself, which means he’s treacherous for America.
As Trump shuffles the players around, we should NOT feel that any of this will spell stability in this government. Donald J. Trump will fire more people because he has bought into his TV persona that firing people moves the story forward. He’s using more Mark Burnett (the producer of The Apprentice) methods than any schooled political science procedures. Trump is an anti-logic, anti-science and anti-human resource kind of guy. If he was the head of a public company, he would be under deep investigation for this kind of turnover. Let’s remember that everyone in the constantly updated “you’re fired” picture were people HE HIRED. His judgement must be questioned.
There is no evidence that this will ever end. There is no reason to believe this is good for America. When he finally breaks the country, who will put it all back together again?
