    Isn't it interesting that the people who leave the White House, almost to a person, really REALLY do not like their experiences and specifically the person in charge? And it is really funny that the President tried to do such illegal things that the CEO of ****ing ExxonMobile said, "Woah - hold up now."

    I liked the last quote the best.

    128 characters is exactly why we are stuck with a con man like Trump. You see it all day every day right here on this forum!

    I was wondering how conservatives would try to spin this. But this is just lazy.

    In other words, you have no defense of Trump other than pathetic tribalism.

    No kidding.

    And they didn't even trot out their old standards:

    The sickeningly overused "But...Hillary..." and the nauseatingly shopworn "TDS" (for the billionth time).

    Lazy? Indeed. And Laughable.

    Now back to the OP.

    Tillerson is merely confirming what everybody ALREADY Knew about that UNPREPARED ORANGE IMBECILE.

    Tillerson just told the world that 1+1=2 and that the ocean contains water.:flagus:

    “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.

    This also, sadly, describes most of the trumpettes who post here.

    What does 128 characters mean?? Twitter used to be 140, but is now 280.... Not sure Rexy is all that on top of things, but he was right about Trump while he was SOS.... Don't even need 128 to type out "****ing moron"

    Do you have a link to the actual raw interview, rather than the anti Trump jesterish remake of what was supposedly said?

    You can watch the pertinent quotes here:



    I don't know if they have released the video of the full interview as yet. I will update this post if I can find a link.

    YOu seem to have a fixation with vomit. Is it the smell or the feel that attracts you?

    In this **** analogy of yours, are you calling Rex Tillerson a lib?

    I dont know much about tillersons personal views

    But he’s reading from the lib playbook now with his personal criticism of trump which is identical to lib attacks on Reagan

    A single criticism can apply to more than just one person.

    On a side note, do you view Trump as being very similar to Reagan?

    Liberals had no success attacking Reagan on his conservative principles so they resorted to personal attacks on him

    Now tillerson is following the same script

    Oh, but the master of the personal attack has just weighed in.... Remember, this is coming from the so-called POTUS

    "Mike Pompeo is doing a great job, I am very proud of him. His predecessor, Rex Tillerson, didn’t have the mental capacity needed. He was dumb as a rock and I couldn’t get rid of him fast enough. He was lazy as hell. Now it is a whole new ballgame, great spirit at State!"

    But again, if he didn't have the mental capacity needed, why on earth did you make him the SOS??? The lunacy of this man is just off the charts...

    What a welcome change from the last admin where nobody told the president he couldn’t do illegal things!
