Tillerson fired. I’m sure he’s devastated.

I was scratching my head over Tillerson being so openly scathing in his remarks yesterday about the Russian assassinations in the U.K. Makes sense now; he felt free to speak.

Googled him and the first 2 news results are him being out 11 mins ago , and 11 hours ago, "Tillerson goes farther than White House, condemns Russia for UK nerve agent attack"

People on twitter are making jokes about the Tillerson firing like this is a reality TV show. The stuff they were criticizing Chris Cillizza for last week. This is not a reality show and it's not funny, at least to me.

So are we supposed to pretend that Tillerson getting fired has nothing to do with him blaming Russia for attempting to kill their former spy? Is Trump even pretending that?

She's requesting a new judge in the case as the current judge is seeking a federal position.

If the contract is deemed valid - I imagine one of those numerous donors currently willing to pay the fine, will pay the fine and her legal fees.

I can't wait for the humiliation. I am wondering if the contract is stated that it's one million per leak (picture or text) or is it 1 million for all of the pictures and texts? Either way... All of them will be released, IMO

How many times has the Secretary of State been fired/replaced mid-term? Another way for the US to look weak and unstable.

I posted about this earlier this morning, but it's gonna get buried w/ the Tillerson news. The ongoing security clearance issues for WH staff is unbelievable. The president's body man was escorted from the WH, FFS.

Seems pretty stable from Clinton through Obama (four years each coinciding with their terms, Christopher, Albright, Powell, Rice, HRC, Kerry). Even going back past that, HW's resigned right before the end of his term to run a failed re-election campaign, and then Reagan's resigned 18 months into his first term, replaced by Shultz, who held it for almost 7 years.

Basically, this doesn't happen. It's fun watching the White House talk out of both sides of their mouth, how they embrace the chaos of the Cabinet because they love people with differing opinions and pushing debate, yet Trump seems to love firing anyone who even considers going against him.

I hope so, but in the end it won't matter much to his base and the GOP

Dude was immediately hired by the Trump campaign after being escorted form the WH grounds. Being under investigation for financial crimes is a prerequisite to be hired by this regime.

This is gross that I'm even somewhat 'hoping' for this, but at this point I think the only aspect of one of these stories that would have any impact on his base would be if it came out that he paid for an abortion for one of these women at some point. Didn't happen here, but you know it's happened at some point in the near past.

That would impact nothing. We are all sinners, and Mr. Trump has clearly repented, and realized abortion is murder as evidenced by his anti-abortion stances now. Plus Hillary is a bitch.

In other news, TIL Alabama does not celebrate Lincoln's birthday on Presidents Day. We celebrate Washington and Jefferson even though Jefferson was born in April. I can't imagine why.
