41. Tillerson survived Africa

NAIROBI, Kenya -- U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson canceled his scheduled events Saturday in Kenya because he was sick. "The secretary is not feeling well after a long couple days working on major issues back home such as North Korea," U.S. Undersecretary of State Steve Goldstein said.

22. The WH is floating the idea that Tillerson was actually fired on Friday

which would mean Tillersonís Russian poisoning statement had nothing to do with it. But this aide says Tillerson did not know the firing was coming.

That he was asked to resign and said no, so perhaps he knew it was coming

but also the statement was his and not an aides

26. It a political purge. We're moving into dictator territory now.

Trump is launching a pogrom of political repression based on his paranoia and suspicion of leakers and disloyal people within his administration. Political purges are quite popular with dictators from Stalin, Hitler, Saddam Hussein, and in North Korea, China and Burma/Myanmar. Trump hasn't (YET!!!) reached the stage of imprisoning anyone who disagrees with him, or the arbitrary executions that are the hallmark of other despots, but who would stop him if he took that next step???

At this point, the question arises, is it worse to have no one running the machinery of government, or is it worse to have a battalion of corrupt sycophants?
