CNN Cites Anonymous Sources Who Declare Rex Tillerson is Thinking About Resigning from Secretary of State

They're adorably dubbing this one a 'REXIT', an obvious play on words to commingle one of their bitter defeats (BREXIT) with a potential massive windfall for team CNN: A Rex Tillerson resignation inside the first year working for President Trump. CNN Fake News Reports.

Tillerson has a growing list of differences with the White House, including a new debate over Iran policy and personnel. His frustration is hardly a secret and it has spilled out publicly at times. But friends sense a change of late.   For weeks, conversations with Tillerson friends outside of Washington have left the impression that he, despite his frustrations, was determined to stay on the job at least through the end of the year. That would allow time to continue efforts to reorganize the State Department and would mean he could claim to have put in a year as America's top diplomat.   But two sources who spoke to CNN on condition of anonymity over the weekend said they would not be surprised if there was a "Rexit" from Foggy Bottom sooner that that.   Both of these sources are familiar with Tillerson conversations with friends outside Washington. Both said there was a noticeable increase in the secretary's frustration and his doubts that the tug-of-war with the White House would subside anytime soon. They also acknowledged it could have been venting after a tough week, a suggestion several DC-based sources made when asked if they saw evidence Tillerson was looking for an exit strategy.

    Amusingly, Trump supporters seem to be elated with the specter of this news. It seems that most supporters of the President are disenfranchised with the President's cabinet picks, save Bannon -- which begs the question: if Trump is such a good delegator, why the hell did he make so many poor choices for his cabinet?   Anti-Trumpsters and deep state shills are actively circle jerking over each and every negative White House rumor, with their eyes fixed on the grande prize: a Trump impeachment. Some argue that the President is barreling towards a Nixonian "Saturday Night Massacre", whereby his AG and Deputy AG resign after failing to fire the special counsel. Judging by the President's tweets this morning, the Nixon timeline might just replay itself here.
