Donald Trump responded in the most childish way to an interview with Rex Tillerson in which the former Secretary of State said that Trump is “pretty undisciplined, doesn’t like to read,” and repeatedly attempted to violate the law. Tillerson described Trump as someone who thinks he’s acting on instincts, instead of facts. And then, Tillerson mentioned Trump’s bizarre Twitter feed.
“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 128 characters,” Tillerson said.
Well, Trump just used his Twitter account to lash out at Tillerson in an embarrassing tweet.
“Mike Pompeo is doing a great job, I am very proud of him. His predecessor, Rex Tillerson, didn’t have the mental capacity needed,” the so-called leader of the free world tweeted. “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!”

Wait, I get that this is the world we are living in, but I still find it hard to believe that the President just tweeted this.

He was the CEO of Exxon. You bankrupted a steak company with your name.
Let’s talk about a moron.

Congratulations to Rex Tillerson on being sworn in as our new Secretary of State. He will be a star!

Trump seems to think that that was an acceptable tweet to unleash from the president of the United States. Conservatives elevated a former reality show star to the highest seat in the land and for some reason, thought that a man in his 70s would change.
