Trump mocked Tillerson's 'mannerisms and Texas drawl': report

Source: The HILL



.
President Trump reportedly mocked Secretary of State Rex Tillerson for his "mannerisms and Texas drawl."

Trump called Tillerson - who was ousted from his role Tuesday - "weak" and talked with friends and advisers about people he thought would be better suited for the job at the State Department, The Washington Post reported.

Trump was also critical of the bad press Tillerson received, according to the Post.

"This guy never gets a good story about him," Trump said, a source told the newspaper

2. This is what Trump calls "humor"

Mocking people. It makes him feel big and important. And of course, he's always worried about "a good story."

5. Ya don't get to be Exxon CEO by being weak

and as for the Texas drawl, his Brooklyn accent sounds like mob Goombah talk. Lotta people with Texas accents, who could run circles around Trump without breaking a sweat. Starting with Lyndon Johnson, Ann Richardson, Molly Ivens, Jim Hightower, Dan Rather.

What an asshole!

33. Trump came from Queens

He reminds me of Archie Bunker. Trump has always tried to be one of the "400" in Manhattan society. But with him all that glitters is not gold. It's more like gold-leafed brass.

8. And yet it was Trump who hired him after bragging about how

he would hire "the best people." Tillerson came highly recommended by Condoleezza Rice and Robert Gates, and Bannon and Kushner also wanted him for the job. Nevertheless, Tillerson was not well-suited for the position, having never worked anywhere but Exxon; and by following the only model he knew, that of a large corporation, he tried to make the State Department more efficient but just ended up hollowing it out and rendering it almost powerless. So it's true that he was not a good SoS. But because Trump repeatedly undercut him in public, at least some of Tillerson's bad press and appearance of weakness was attributable to Trump, not anything Tillerson did or said.

What it comes down to is that if an employee fails you should look first at the boss, because it's often the case that either the boss didn't choose well in the first place or he failed to support or train the employee. Trump is actually even worse: he seems to love setting people up just so he can cut them down. It's his fault more than anyone else's that his administration sucks. He didn't hire the best people and he trashes the ones he did hire.

accomplished and articulate MAN. Shitbag is an inarticulate, oafish thug.

24. Hateful and childish man.

Leaders are supposed to represent the best of our country, to ourselves and the world: to lift citizens up and inspire them forward and upward, to bring out the best of us.

Trump does the opposite: he represents the worst of humanity, brings out the worst in us, and encourages evil and cruelty at every turn.

34. Cheetohead has no friends. There

is no inner circle w/ whom he can parade his comedy routine which consists of ridiculing important and/or famous people - and anyone else who crosses his path and does not wipe his butt. How effing lonely he must be. It's obvious he dislikes his wife and wishes his youngest son would go play in traffic. I've never seen him hugging his grandchildren and he only embraces his eldest daughter in the creepiest fashion.

I'm not sure he would even be happy if he became President for life and had us all bow when he enters the room.

Happiness will never touch him because he has never felt it and would not recognize it if it grabbed him by the nuts.
