The Washington Post released a lengthy report on Secretary of State Rex Tillerson Wednesday night, based upon “the accounts of 19 current and former senior administration officials and Capitol Hill aides.” The piece makes it clear that Tillerson is expected to step down.

The report describes Tillerson as intensely unhappy with President Donald Trump, whom he allegedly called a “moron” in private. The relationship between the two has suffered an “irreparable breach” that is likely to end with Tillerson’s exit from the White House.

Trump and Tillerson have vastly different personalities. Trump views Tillerson as “unsupportive” and dislikes his tone. On the rare occasions Tillerson has won a concession from the president on foreign policy, Trump “resents” his success.

Even the staff members of the two men are said to be in routine conflict with each other over their bosses’ differences.

One former senior official with continued White House access told the Post, “The White House thinking is unequivocal that he’s going to be gone soon, but the assumption is that he’s going to quit on his own so Trump can say, ‘Thank you for your year of service.’”

“Tillerson has no help. No team, no natural allies, and he’s not hiring anyone. There’s a kind of death spiral,” said a former senior official.

    First off, trying to predict Trump is the same futile effort its always been. Trump enjoys doing the unpredictable.

    Next, I’ve heard the the frustration is Trump’s in that Tillerson did not deny the moron comment, accurate or not, Trump wanted a clear denial. And frankly, anyone who calls his Boss a moron is not long for the job.

    Will Rexit add or subtract from the chaos that is the Trump Administration? Trump enjoys running the show himself so does he put a non-entity in there to clean up after the elephant? Anyone sufficiently senior and assertive to qualify for the position is likely not to cherish the role of manure sweeper. Anyone willing to do so is likely not to rank highly with other Foreign Ministers or Leaders.

    Selecting Haley or Pompao to replace Tillerson just shifts the open position one seat and involves, yet another, Agency in replacing the Chief.

    Is it that Tillerson has not hired the people he needs or that Teflon Donnie has vetoed any proposed nominee in possession of an operational clue? I would suspect the latter, as TD does not need people who actually know what they are doing. He only needs people who are personally loyal to him!
    That’s OK, though. I am sure that Tillerson will have no problem once Teflon Donnie utters that phrase that all love him for – “You’re fired!”

    Trump has an never ending list of unqualified sycophants to file his cabinet posts. All you need to know about the workings of Trump and by extension the administration which is obviously disfunctional and dangerous is Rick Perry is in charge of the nukes. End of story.

    first of all, to be factual..report form those who were there at the time say tillerson called the president a “#@%$^ moron”..the general news media cannot say that on the air..mr tillerson was a man of power in his own right,as ceo of exxon/mobil, the largest oil company in the world,before he retired to accept the position of secretary of state,supposedly per his wifes urging,so I cannot understand why he allows trump to belittle him and downgrade his serious efforts to do his job..i do believe mr tillerson will not stay on but will resign at the end of the year..there is also a rumor that others high up in trump world will resign if tillerson does..who knows!! after all, trump did say “only he can fix things”..lets see him try!

  5. rednekokie says:

    Whether Tillerson called tRump a moron or not is not the question. The answer, however, is that tRump is indeed a moron, and a fucking one, to boot. Tillerson is a well educated and thoughtful man. tRump is not, in any sense of the word.
    Tillerson won’t actually resign — he’ll be fired, and they’ll call it a resignation.
    Right now, Tillerson is the one person keeping us out of a third world war.

    You would think a man like Rex Tillerson would show some self respect and resign with his head up high.

      yabbed,

      You hit the key question, not only of the Trump Administration, but of service overall.

      Does one serve the American Public, does one serve America, better by staying within the chaos Trump calls an Administration, or by leaving it? Is the person Trump is likely to select to replace you better or worse for America as a whole? Because, if you truly feel that Trump without Tillerson is much more dangerous; then we can only applaud Tillerson’s willingness to put up with the crap Trump forces on him. Tillerson looks in the mirror when he shaves and has decided that America needs this sacrifice from him.

      As I understand it, this question is not just Tillerson’s. Several Administration figures truly, and perhaps rightly, believe that without the restraints they put upon him would be significantly more dangerous to America and the world. These people stay in spite of the abuse Trump feeds them. When one looks across the river at the National Cemetery, it’s not really that big a sacrifice.

      • yabbed says:

        Tillerson and Kelly and Mattis are just propping up Trump. They may mean well, but it is keeping Trump in place and that is not in the best interests of the United States. The sooner the Republicans are forced to face the danger of keeping Trump in office, the sooner our country will get some relief from his madness.

        • dbtheonly says:

          Again, that’s the question. What disasters can Trump cause by remaining in office. What Gotterdamerung can result from removing him? What can or will convince Republicans to dump Trump?

          Are those serving in the Trump Admin. propping him up or restraining him? Trump is the duly elected President.

          • yabbed says:

            Attempting to normalize the clearly dysfunctional Trump is not doing the country any favor. The sooner his chaos takes him out of office, the better for the country.
