Rex Tillerson Sets New Sec. State Records for Low Stamina
If you voted for Trump-or not for Hillary-because Trump said she lacks stamina, you got played.
Rex Tillerson is not exactly setting the world on fire at the State Department:
“Tillerson rebuts ‘fatigue’ reports: South Korea ‘never invited us for dinner’
Tillerson is very good at going to be early. Congresswoman Maxine Waters has been very clear that Tillerson was appointed to do one job-get rid of the sanctions.
“They see that Flynn, who he had to fire, was talking with Russia about sanctions with the Russian ambassador,” she explained. “I believe that [Secretary of State] Tillerson, who was the CEO of Exxon, has as his highest priority getting rid of the sanctions. Don’t forget, he is the one who negotiated the deal with Russia to drill in the Arctic and that was stopped because Obama placed sanctions on them and they couldn’t proceed with that. And so Tillerson, who has this great relationship with Putin, is going to do everything that he can to lift those sanctions and that’s going to be their Achilles heel.”
One reason to think that’s his main function is he’s done almost nothing else. Remember when they claimed Hillary did nothing as SOS? Now we see what doing nothing really looks like.
Rachel Maddow pointed out that one way Trump and Tillerson are serving Russia’s interests is gutting the State Department.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson denied reports in South Korean media outlets that he did not dine with the country’s officials due to “fatigue” on a leg of his Asia trip, according to an interview published Saturday.
“They never invited us for dinner, then at the last minute they realized that optically it wasn’t playing very well in public for them, so they put out a statement that we didn’t have dinner because I was tired,” Tillerson told Independent Journal Review’s Erin McPike during a sit-down interview in which Tillerson also said he’s “not a big media press access person.”
Never asked us to dinner. They just asked him to come to their country so he could sleep in a hotel. And they said HRC was always sleeping. She travelled a record number of miles as SOS.
Tillerson is taking a record number of naps.
“A report Friday in the Korea Herald said that Tillerson “shortened diplomatic consultations and public events in Seoul.” The former Exxon Mobil executive also did not dine with Hwang Kyo-ahn, the South Korean acting president, and Yun Byung-se, the country’s foreign minister.”
“The Korea Herald cited Seoul officials saying that Tillerson opted not to dine with the officials as a result of “fatigue.”
When asked whether the Seoul officials lied, Tillerson said “it was just their explanation.”
Alternative facts again. In any battle of explanations I’ll take their explanation over anyone associated with Donald Trump
The secretary of state went on to say that he did have dinner that night, but did not disclose with whom.”
I’m certainly relieved to know that he did have dinner. That was the concern-that he didn’t have a nice meal.
Sure a good thing we avoided Hillary with her low stamina.
P.S. As we saw in my poll out this week, the long awaited poll results are in, and right now I’m just 11 points down vs. Peter King (GOP-NY-District 2). And the voters don’t even know who I am yet.
There is nothing more important in getting answers to Trump-Russia collusion than a Democratic House in 2019. Please donate to help me in my part of the effort to fight for a Dem House.
Thank you. We must have a Dem House. And so, we will.
