    Tillerson couldn't stand his boss. (Remember the “he's a Moron“ comment that Tillerson refused to confirm or deny? (Truer words were never spoken, but I digress...) Early on, Tillerson said he'd only stay for a year.

    Trump wants people who will do as he says to do: mindless yes-men who will ignore their job description and simply do whatever he tells them to do. Vis a vie; Owner/ Obedient dog relationship.

    ^^^I agree. I'm sure Tillerson is relieved to be out of there, but he seemed to be one of the few remaining with any common sense and diplomacy.

    Saw this opinion in the Washington Post today

    Trump’s position on guns, like his position on the “dreamers” or almost anything else, is a public-policy version of Schrödinger’s cat. It exists in multiple states simultaneously, becoming one thing or another only when it is observed — or in his case, when the cameras turn on and he starts in on one of his extemporaneous riffs. But unlike Schrödinger’s cat, who becomes firmly either dead or alive when the box is opened, when you close Trump’s box, his position reverts to its former state of indeterminacy, once again neither pro nor con but both and neither.



    It is no way to run a country.

    Similarly I saw a meme with a guy waving a flag and brandishing a rifle.

    The slogan: people need to respect the flag of the government I am stockpiling arms against.

    I chuckled at what he said about meeting Kim Jong-Un...something about "dealing with a madman, well, that would be Kim Jong-Un´s problem".. :D

    I also find it telling that he has so many conditions when it comes to interviewing with Mueller but apparently none where the meeting with another country´s dictator is concerned...

    He leaves March 31. Pompeo takes his place and who knows who will be chosen to take his place as CIA director, I think he was.

    Meanwhile, United Kingdom is throwing out over half it's Russian Diplomats and will freeze assets on Russian accts they think may be involved.

    The US needs to lead the way with sanctioning Russia for this attack on a UN member Nation.

    Don't hold your breath, though.

    So...March for our lives. An estimate of 1.000.000 people were protesting in DC alone.
    And Trump was golfing in Mar-a-lago. Again.
    More troubling though replacing McMaster with that war monger Bolton...

    Oh Trump could not care less about those marches: not his voters.
