To be clear, the headline isn’t my opinion. I don’t think Rex Tillerson is “dumb as a rock”. In fact, I think he’s a pretty smart guy. Moreover, I find that he did a pretty good job as Secretary of State. I originally thought he was a poor choice. However, I conceded that I was wrong a couple of months into his stint.
That said, I’m just a guy with a blog. I’m not a foreign policy expert. My experience in government is limited to my time in the Marines, where I was far removed from foreign policy decisions. Well, pretty much all decisions. I digress.
Rex Tillerson is “dumb as a rock”.
Makes me wonder who had the bright idea of hiring the guy in the first place. Must be a real moron. I’m pretty sure that the Secretary of State has to be nominated. I’ll get our crack research team over here at Meso Fusion Media to look into this. We should probably fired the guy who nominated him.
However, I was a bit surprised to see President Trump criticize someone for being unprepared. Especially when it comes to diplomacy with foreign leaders. Again, I’m no expert. Thus, my opinion should be disregarded. However I seem to recall a high ranking Republican disparaging the notion of preparation.
Maybe Rex learned from this guy. Or perhaps he thought it was a low level position that didn’t require much preparation. Moreover, his opinion may have been solidified by the notion that someone as dumb as he is was even being considered for the job.
My crack research team still hasn’t gotten back to me on who that idiot was. However, when I find out I’m really going to let him have it.
