1. I accept credit for the North Korean "progress".

2. I accept credit for the Afghanistan "progress".

3. I accept credit for the Syrian "progress".

4. Everything else is Russia's fault.

ABCNNBCBS Analysis: "A mystery why Tillerson was so disturbed.  He had to know this was likely before taking the job."

it's cowardly

used Kelly to inform him it was impending and a tweet to do it.

for someone who created an image of firing people, he sure hides from doing it in person a lot.

 

i mean, i like trump. i think most the convention-breaking stuff he's doing is great. but, come on... the guy served you for a year, whether good or bad, at least inform him and fire him in person -_-

Good luck with that... if they gave a fuck about you and anyone here, they would've fixed it when people started complaining — rigth at the beginning...

Eventually the brand will end up being (re(re(re)))sold to some major "news" out(oi)let or another and that spun as bullish "press freedom"/"sign of brand maturity"/"media sector strenght"/whatever...

Mark my words.

I'm very sad that I ever voted for Trump. I had no idea he would gets us closer to a Nuclear confrontation with our "enemies". But that is what he is doing. The NK thing is just b.s. And now Russia is being forced to play a more military card. I'm done with this guy. He is a Nutcase with access to nuclear weapons. I hope they impeach him, I don't care how...just do it. The guy is dangerous.

I did not like him to begin with. Never wanted to vote for him but I did. In reality, like the majority of votes for Trump, it was a vote against Hitlery. We did not have any choice.
If the crazy coward starts WW3, it would be Hitlery's fault for having propelled him into the white house.
I am amazed at the lack of decency of how he handled the firing. Why not letting Tillerson resign. Does he have any respect for anyone ?
