News Item:  Rex Tillerson leaves the State Department after 405 days, one of the
shortest tenures as Secretary of State.

You know when I said that guy was "a f***ing moron' I didn't know how right I was.

He fires me ... hell!  I quit.   How can I work for a know-nothing who can't keep his trap

Amazing!  Yeah, amazing all right.  His business is running a couple of buildings --
nothing in the top story ... thinks he's a genius.  Yeah, amazing all right!

Incredible!  Hell!  Incredible is the word.  An incredible loudmouth with zero, zilch,
nada for knowledge.

Unbelievable!  That's his word.  He's president.  He wouldn't last six months in a
well-run corporation.

He's like an empty piggy bank with a couple of coins.  Shake it and it makes a lot of
noise, the coins rattling away inside.  But it's all full of air.

Same with him.  Nothing.  No strategy.  No real idea of what's going on in the world.  
Everything's making a deal, and he thinks he can always get the better part.

Fact is, he didn't even write his Art of the Deal book, and the guy who wrote it is sure
he's 'a f***ing moron'.  He said so, though not in the same words.

Desperation, I think.  The American people are desperate.  They keep voting for an
outsider hoping for something better.

This time they got an outlier ... far, far out.  And the world and its diplomats can't stop
snickering.  I know.  I've seen them.
