Tillerson didn’t drink the Trump Kool-aid nearly as much as others so he was on the outs from day one. This President requires absolute loyalty to himself above everything else (including the nation), if you don’t have that you won’t last long.

Sessions has only survived because of the legal liability that would be caused by his firing. Trump still, somewhat, listens to his lawyers, he doesn’t want to increase his legal problems so Sessions stays.

Then the Obama cabinet must have drank a lot of Kool-aid. Holder being the main Kool-aid guzzler. Protected Obama like a tight pair of leotards. There were others.

Tillerson was a poor choice from the beginning but Trump had to get someone in the Cabinet.

Tillerson damn near destroyed Exxon we sure as heck don't need him as SOS

Heck, he was better Than Hillary As SOS! The problem with Trump that he is a prima Donna like Gen. MacArthur except he is a President and his Board members are too numerous to get fired yet!

I went to many classes where I use to work .
during one the instructor was talking about lowere management ( us )
and top management as we get stuck with what we have people wize good or bad
however the top dogs will always surround them self with "yes men / women "sitting at there table they only want to hear great idea and we will start on it today ,not I do not think thats a good idea and that person is soon to be moved out
JMHO I think Trump sticks to that business motto "my way or the highway" as much as Washington will allow him to get away with
I would bet he would love to say your fired to a crap load of them

Probably was the cause of Millions of shares of stock being sold by the Rockefeller family in the past year or two. Tillerson ranks right up there with the (Old) CEO of G.E. Jeff Immelt,

Immelt was w/o a doubt an and sukcophant but can't say who was worse. Immelt was one of the first Azz Kissers to suck up to Obama. Thus, Tillerson was better.

I may be wrong but didn't Tillerson have an opposing view with Trump on the Iranian nuclear deal?

Yes, apparently Tillerson's globalist views clash with Trump's America first philosophy.

Tillerson leaving should be no surprise as his comments, in direct opposition to Trump, were clear, especially over the last several months.

When 'the help' is in opposition, time to change the 'help.'


The government has no rights. Only the PEOPLE have rights that empower the government.

This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.
Abraham Lincoln

Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It is they way it is. The way we cope with it, is what makes the difference.

"Hope has two children: anger, and courage." Augustine, Confessions

Der Verzagten aber und Ungläubigen und Greulichen und Totschläger und Hurer und Zauberer und Abgöttischen und aller Lügner, deren Teil wird sein in dem Pfuhl, der mit Feuer und Schwefel brennt; das ist der andere Tod.
