Rex Tillerson seems to be well-suited to fill the role of America’s top diplomat.
The secretary of state today held a quickie news conference to dispel what had been reported about his alleged desire to quit his high office.
Then came a most interesting response to a direct question from one of the reporters present.
Did you call the president a “moron” earlier this year? came the question. That’s pretty direct, yes?
Tillerson, though, responded with a recitation of how he won’t get involved in “petty” topics. He said such pettiness is one of the problems with Washington, D.C. “I am not from here,” he said. So, he won’t concern himself with such a trivial question, Tillerson said.
Hmmm. My interpretation of his non-answer to a direct question? Yep. He called the president of the United States a “moron.”
