Rex Tillerson in the Washington Post

Interesting article in WaPo about how Tillerson came to be Trump’s pick for Secretary of State.

Of interest is the information, according to the article, that both Romney and Giuliani told Trump that Secretary of State was the only job they’d be interested in, and that Trump didn’t like that sort of attitude. The article also reports that sources say that Trump wanted more of a public apology from Romney than Romney was willing to give.

  1. Ironic that Guilliani lost the only position he wanted because it’s the only position he was willing to accept. Too bad because I like Guilliani. On the plus side, picking the CEO from Exxon will give the greenies fits. Anything that melts the snowflakes is a good thing.

    • Is it just me, or are the faces “whited out” in the surveillance footage, made to look like “glare”? The incident happened while dark outside.

    • Let’s not forget what happened to George Zimmerman. Better sometimes to let yourself be mugged.

      • “Better sometimes to let yourself be mugged.”

        You need better role models. Start by watching Death Wish (1-3). Follow that up with The Brave One, Defiance (1980), Dirty Harry, Fighting Back, The Exterminator and Siege (1978 TV movie).

  4. Its an interesting article- very vague about Rudy except “stamina”. I wonder if that means there has been some kind of cancer scare.

    The same WaPo article promotes Romney for Veterans Affairs while at the time saying he was only interested in State. I was thinking of Brown for VA, although Romney would clearly best for the massive analytics necessary to effect an overhaul. Its unclear why Romney would want to try to take that job on though.

    Pence will clearly have the most interesting memoir when this is all over with. He not only had to bring Romney into the orbit but he has to keep these warring Trump factions apart. Its a wonder the guy isnt ready to quit already.

      To turn the knife in a little more, Trump could just announce that Romney has agreed to work on overhauling the VA. For the Vets…Let’s see Romney deny it. Instead he’ll be stuck, and responsible for, a very difficult job, but one that could benefit from Romney’s talents.

  5. Trump humiliated Romney, whipped the floor with him, made him his bitch. Excellent! This is revenge that I can beleive in. Now nobody can have any doubts that Romney is a worthless rag. True master! Loved it! Trump is the best. Sorry mates, I’m too bussy installing boilers to comment or even read the posts. Boilers are the real thing, lemme tell you. Put an oil steam boiler together today, that thing was a real beauty! Love, love, love boilers! Plumbing is so great! Don’t remember when I had so much fun.

    • Dang it yakov, your comments and just all-around joie de vivre are the best thing about this blog. If you weren’t Jewish, I’d bribe Santa to leave a steam boiler in your xmas stocking. Happy holidays, my man.

      • Thanks, but I’m afraid that I can’t take credit for it, I’m happy, jovial fellow by nature. In addition, in my house things were doom and gloom when I was growing up, so I went to the other extreme as an act of resistance. I’m overly optimistic, I guess, but I don’t worry about it.
