Tillerson reportedly described Trump as ‘a moron’ and was set to resign in July

It is surprising that we don't hear more of this from others who have to deal with #45.

But how else would any sane person describe a POTUS who'd go to a storm ravaged island and tell the victims of the disaster that they're hurting his budget, that their disaster wasn't as bad as the Katrina disaster, and then throw paper towels at them?

"Secretary of State Rex Tillerson openly referred to President Donald Trump "a moron" after a July 20 meeting at the Pentagon, according to NBC News. 

Tillerson made the comment in front of members of Trump's national security team and Cabinet members, three senior officials told NBC. 

NBC also said Tillerson was on the verge of resigning this summer and had to be talked out of it by Vice President Mike Pence."

The Trump Crime Family

via Daily Kos:

Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. Were Close to Being Charged With Felony Fraud
New York prosecutors were preparing a case. Then the D.A. overruled his staff after a visit from a top donor: Trump attorney Marc Kasowitz.
In one email, according to four people who have seen it, the Trumps discussed how to coordinate false information they had given to prospective buyers. In another, according to a person who read the emails, they worried that a reporter might be onto them. In yet another, Donald Jr. spoke reassuringly to a broker who was concerned about the false statements, saying that nobody would ever find out, because only people on the email chain or in the Trump Organization knew about the deception, according to a person who saw the email.
There was “no doubt” that the Trump children “approved, knew of, agreed to, and intentionally inflated the numbers to make more sales,” one person who saw the emails told us. “They knew it was wrong.”

From Yahoo! News:

"In his first visit to Puerto Rico following the devastation of Hurricane Maria, President Donald Trump tossed paper towels at suffering survivors Tuesday.

A small number of the more than 3 million residents in Puerto Rico still without power were gifted paper towels, which Trump apparently thought was the most pressing need for those in the crowd.
After Puerto Rico’s governor told Trump that only 16 people had been reported dead, Trump said the storm wasn’t a “real catastrophe” like Hurricane Katrina.

“Everybody watching can really be very proud of what’s taken place in Puerto Rico,” he added.

Later on Tuesday, the government revised the death count to 34. The number is likely to go up again as more information about the storm’s destruction emerges."

What did Secretary of State call Trump? Oh, yeah. A MORON!

From HuffPost: Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Wednesday pushed back on a report claiming that he threatened to quit and called President Donald Trump a “moron” over the summer, and held an unscheduled press conference to praise his boss and affirm his “commitment to the president and the success of our country.”

The nation’s top diplomat is said to have called Trump a “moron” following a meeting with members of Trump’s national security team, senior administration officials reportedly told NBC News.

When asked about the incident on Wednesday, Tillerson did not directly deny that it had occurred, saying: “I’m not going to deal with petty stuff like that.”

Tillerson also reportedly threatened not to return to Washington in July, according to NBC. He was in his home state of Texas for his son’s wedding when Trump delivered a widely condemned, highly politicized speech to the Boy Scouts of America. Tillerson was formerly the organization’s national president.

White House chief of staff John Kelly and Defense Secretary James Mattis apparently stepped in to “beg him to stay,” according to the report. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said at the time that Tillerson was merely “taking a little time off.”

Vice President Mike Pence also got involved, officials added, offering Tillerson a “pep talk” over breakfast and encouraging him to find ways to smooth over the relationship with Trump. He suggested that Tillerson adopt a more conciliatory approach in public settings, and save his differences for private meetings.

If Tillerson did not call Trump a moron, he would be one of the few Americans who have not.

Could this be, "fake news"? Yeah, right.

Sam! Who the hell is Michael Obama? Some apparition who came to you in a drunken stupor?

We have some heartfelt advice for you "Sam:" Stop drinking and maybe you'll recover from the muddled haze you're living in.

How do we know he drinks? Perhaps he is opioid dependent. Or, he could simply be stupid. My vote goes to the later.
