Also, fun fact: Rex Tillerson currently holds [the record for shortest total time serving as a first term Secretary of State (who was fired)](http://fortune.com/2018/03/13/rex-tillerson-fired-shortest-serving-secretary-state-trump/
). (Not to be confused with shortest tenure, where you have to go back to 1881 to find that James Blaine served as SOS for only 9 months under Garfield. Blaine, however, was reappointed to the SOS position under Harrison and served for three additional years.)
Edit: Since my writing, the article I linked was updated. Blaine was not the shortest tenure, but rather Elihu Washburne, who serve for 11 days.
I was literally just about to post this lol. I would also like to add this:
[John Kelly "signed off on a plan to replace Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State back in October-November of 2017… The breaking point appears to be President Trump's surprise announcement last week that he was willing to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.” @MajorCBS says](https://twitter.com/CBSNews/status/973544881355452416
He literally does everything he denies once people forget he denied it.
What a bloody clown fiesta current politics are.

Literally the most insecure man on earth. So much weakness.

We all know that after 15 minutes have passed anything Trump has said is now null and void so this comment shouldn't surprise anyone.
First off, Trump is a fucking moron.
Second, goddamn does the failing New York Times have great informants or what? November 30: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/30/us/politics/state-department-tillerson-pompeo-trump.html
And don’t forget that Tillerson first threatened to resign after that weird speech Trump gave in front of the Boy Scouts way back in July 2017. Just a few months later, Trump said that he and Tillerson should compare IQ test results. Well, I guess the results came in, and Trump didn’t like them.
The White House reminds me of a company i worked for. Good boss gets taken away after a buy out. We get a new shitty boss, he hires some idiot friends, people keep getting fired, clients calling and e-mailing asking why it's such a shit show and if anyone even works there anymore, then the company fails completely.
To be fair, Tillerson lasted for another ~16 Mooches which is decades in Trumpland.
Our country could not be any less respected than it has been the past 14 months.
I imagine the house intel committee's sudden announcement of 'no collusion' findings was a total coincidence! /s^obviously
He wasn't lying about "calling the final shots". Who's next? Actually, better yet, who's left?
