Thread: Trump : Tillerson dumb as a Rock

    Trump : Tillerson dumb as a Rock

    Tillerson "didn't have the mental capacity needed" as the nation's top diplomat.

    "He was dumb as a rock and I couldn’t get rid of him fast enough," Trump said. "He was lazy as hell. Now it is a whole new ballgame, great spirit at State!"

    If he was so bad why did Trump hire him, let alone keep in on board for over a year?

    Trump proving once again he has the emotional mentality of a 10 year old. Meanwhile the fool in chief continues to appoint and sing praises of his neocon appointees Pompeo, Trump's master Bolton, Pence, Haley, Nauert.

    technically he wasn't dumb as a rock until he went on network news and said he didn't get along well with trump because he consistently asked him to do illegal things

    'We endorse the idea of voluntarism; self-responsibility: Family, friends, and churches to solve problems, rather than saying that some monolithic government is going to make you take care of yourself and be a better person. It's a preposterous notion: It never worked, it never will. The government can't make you a better person; it can't make you follow good habits.' - Ron Paul 1988

    Which indicates that neocons are smart enough to not say bad things about Trump in person or in the media. There is some skill required to be a good sycophant infiltrator.

    Eh, Reagan used to ask his staffers to come up with ways to creatively but legally do things. I think Tillerson must be releasing a book or something. But I am hard pressed to believe the former head of Exxon Mobil is dumb or lazy.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

Wolf DeVoon

    Strange how that first set of "best people" have one by one been replaced by lifelong politicians and government employees.

    I continue to see no evidence to disprove my personal theory that POTUS gave Barron his Twitter password and told him, "Have fun with it."

    "What was challenging for me coming from the disciplined, highly process-oriented Exxon Mobil corporation," Tillerson said, was "to go to work for a man who is pretty undisciplined, doesn't like to read, doesn't read briefing reports, doesn't like to get into the details of a lot of things, but rather just kind of says, 'This is what I believe.'"

    Tillerson said Trump believes he is acting on his instincts rather than relying on facts. But Tillerson seemed to suggest that it resulted in impulsiveness.

    "He acts on his instincts; in some respects, that looks like impulsiveness," Tillerson said. "But it's not his intent to act on impulse. I think he really is trying to act on his instincts."

    (Notice Tillerson doesn't say Trump isn't being impulsive; he's saying he isn't trying to be impulsive.)

    Perhaps the most damning quote came when Tillerson talked about how Trump as president regularly attempted to do things that violated the law.

    "So often, the president would say, 'Here's what I want to do, and here's how I want to do it,'" Tillerson said, according to the Houston Chronicle, "and I would have to say to him, 'Mr. President, I understand what you want to do, but you can't do it that way. It violates the law."

    Tillerson also appeared to take a shot at Trump's chief method of communication, Twitter.

    "I will be honest with you: It troubles me that the American people seem to want to know so little about issues - that they are satisfied with a 128 characters," Tillerson said.

    He was quick to say that that wasn't meant as a shot at Trump, but our political system more broadly. Next to his other comments, though, it wasn't difficult to see he was lumping Trump with all those Americans who aren't intellectually curious enough about policy and the actual details of U.S. government.
