    You couldn't make it up... fired by tweet, Trump thinks he'll be “much happier now” without Tillerson; it's relationships for millennials.

    Bad news for the UK though, since Tillerson actually seemed inclined to strengthen alliances and confront adversaries, whereas Trump will do anything not to upset his buddy Putin.

    And Mercopress, there is no way in hell that “...said the presidential twit,” was a mistake!

    The new CIA Director is Gina Haspel who has run torture centers. If Obama had done his job she would now be in a federal penitentiary. As it is she is under indictment in Europe. She dare not leave Washington. This is what our republic has come to.

    Those who live by the sword [REALITY-SHOW], die by the sword!

    After “oohs and the aahs” are over; watch the meeting with N. Korea crumble soon after the hand-shakes.

    ALL the scandals & the Non-Achievements have not YET surfaced or not yet begun to show effect.
