        Who is Mike Pompeo, named Trump’s top diplomat?

        A politically canny CIA chief, the new US secretary of state earned the president's trust by praising him and echoing his hard line against Iran and North Korea

            Putin does not play! What was that, only 6 hours after Tillerson implicated Russia for Salibury attack?

            Or, is this #fakenews?

                  NY Times reported that WH planned to replace Tillerson with Pompeo back in Nov, 2017.

                  https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/30/u...peo-trump.html

                  In the article, NYT also described Pompeo as more hawkish than Tillerson.

                  For once, Fake News is right.

                    WH itself stated that Tillerson was told on the phone Friday that he was on the way out, timing not determined. The next day, Saturday, Tillerson, who was on official visit in Africa, cleared all events from his calendar and called in sick.

                    When Tillerson stated that Russia was behind the Salisbury attack, he knew his boss had already fired him and really didn't give a f**k about what Trump felt anymore.

                          LMFAO. On this page:

                          - Tillerson fired for criticizing Putin
                          - Tillerson fired for trying to save Iran deal
                          - Tillerson fired over Qatar support

                          I bet the Russia thing will win with most of the media. It just fits that conspiracy theory narrative better.

                            Well the simpler version: Trump is incompetent and can't hold a cabinet together, is still a perfectly reasonable conclusion.

                            But I like to think it's a combination of that and the above cock-ups as well as the fact that the sanctions couldn't get lifted and the Exxon deal isn't going through so they no longer need the oil man. So who's next?
