1. These people are at war with integrity....

Trump cant stand a public servant whose priority is the country over him.

2. Poor Rex Tillerson. That's all anyone will remember about him.

What I'd like to know is how John Kelly knew he was on the toilet. Verrrrry interesting....

3. Seems Tillerson couldn't fight NiKKKi Hailstorm


Where is the world going when this guy appears as the poor good guy who got dumped on while taking a dump?

Don't answer that. It's a rhetorical question.

12. Glad you were able to hold that "like" in check!

Given the recent WH cleaning going on, I think tillerman was just a placeholder, and he probably knew it. Now we get the real devil's spawn...

14. I do too, but...

 

I don't understand what relation integrity has with being fired while taking a dump...there is none...Its an unnecessary attack on Tillerson.

I do think Tillerson will go in history as the worst Secretary of State, and he may lack some integrity, but his speech was meant to address the man-child and the other republicans who have no integrity, or dignity left, take what is good about it without bashing it because there is no room for it in this case.

6. Rex, your personal integrity was lost

the moment you signed on to work for Team Trump. Integrity, dignity and honor have no place anywhere close to Trump.

7. "One minute you're the head of a $50 billion corporation."

"The next minute you're fired by a guy who used to sell steaks in the mail!"

That's our government folks!

9. There is an immense miasma surrounding this putrid "administration."

There are other components, of course, but what strikes me in this moment is the combination of weapons-grade irony and hypocrisy.

13. One of my favoritist words: miasma. Swamp gas. Makes you sick and eventually kills you.

I'm guessing most of dump's supporters can't understand, don't care, and applaud his bravado.

I wonder if DC will revert back to its earlier marsh/brackish backwater. Remnants of a few buildings built above the flood plain but not as well preserved as the Acropolis.

Of course dump's lowland (NYC, FL) holdings will be under the same tepid ocean waves but he'll be "holed" up with BFF vlad in some mountain dacha. Right, vlad? Promises, promises?

10. General Kelly demeaned himself (further)...

...by revealing the unnecessary details about Tillerson's whereabouts when fired. Very unseemly.

Falls under that "conduct unbecoming to an officer and a gentleman" guideline.

17. I think Kelly made up the story about Tillerson being on the toilet

How would Kelly have known anyway? Tillerson was in Africa all week, and I believe he was in Kenya on Friday/Saturday. The African countries are all 4, 5 or 6 hours ahead of the Eastern US time zone. For all practical purposes a tweet is like an email - you know when you sent it, but you don't know when he's going to receive it or read it.

It just shows what an asshat Kelly is, because he knows Tillerson can't argue or disprove his statement.

18. That did not occur to me, but it wouldn't be...

...surprising. Tacky and juvenile either way.

16. I don't like this

Tillerson was pretty weak, but I think this was uncalled for coming from Kelly. And I think DU is better than this.
