So Trump fires the Secretary of State through an early morning tweet. Despite all his bluster on "The Apprentice", Trump doesn't have the guts to fire him to his face. Tillerson learns when he comes to work and an aide shows him the tweet.

What a classless human being. You idiots who voted for him should move to Russia.

So what do you expect Gunnar, call him in and give him a participant ribbon. You can bet TILLERSON had many fired in his years at Exon Mobile the same exact way.
If Obama would have fired Hillary Clinton the same way, there would be a Democrat sitting in the Whitehouse today.

You think Rex Tillerson used to fire people at Exxon Mobil by tweeting on the internet, instead of going through his human resources department or firing them through a face to face meeting or a phone call?

You think President Obama should have fired Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by tweeting that she's gone?

What are you, an idiot?

Please read the book, "Dark Money" by Jane Mayer. Learn what has really taken place and how necessary it will be for both the Real Republicans and Real Democrats to vote this mess out and ASAP. I don't think that either party REALLY wants our Government torn out by the Roots. A goal. The John Birchers came back. Read how none of their plans include any of us. We defeated them in the 60's but they found a way to win with the help of their Billions. Amazing. Knowledge is Power. Please read.

How can I say anything positive to someone who believes that human resources decisions should be made by sending out tweets? There isn't even a basis to have an intelligent discussion in that. It's like trying to have a reasonable discussion with a dog, only the dog is not responsible that it has the intelligence of a two year old.

Here's some fake news, which some people call satire:

This may be the real reason Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, was fired by the man he once called a "f-ing moron -- apparently T-Rex was caught under the moron's desk disconnecting the nuclear button!

If you want to stay in the herd, you don't back-door the boss. It doesn't matter who you are or who he is. That's just the way s**t works in this world.

Apparently you haven't had enough experience with the most chickens**t and inhuman relations that is SOP with way too many companies in the US. Class has nothing to do with the business of killing Caesar.

In the real world there is a clause called "At Will". Meaning you agree to work if you agree that your employer can terminate your service any time, for no cause, with no notice.
YOUR RUN OFF

"At will?"

Hopefully, the American people will come to their senses in 2020, like Rex Tillerson did in 2017, when he realized that he was working for a "f-ing moron", and fire Trump "at will." The 65,844,610 people who didn't vote for Trump in 2016, already knew what "working for Trump at will" would mean. I hope those who voted for Trump are happy now. Additionally, I would love to see a list of all the great things Trump has done to make America great again, instead of all the advisers, staffers and cabinet members (who Trump hired), that he has fired (or those who quit) for either corruption, incompetence or trying to do an impossible job for a "f-ing moron".

Here's a list of Trump's biggest business failures. There are those of us who feel that Trump is already adding another failure to his failure list -- he is a failing U.S. president. Furthermore, Trump is also an embarrassment as a U.S. president, which the pictures, porn star, Stormy Daniels, allegedly has of him (as well as the ones Putin has, i.e., "golden showers") may eventually show. Those images should go down great in future U.S. history books. In the meantime, the rest of the world is wondering what in the hell happened to the United States -- all except Vladimir Putin of Russia, who is fiendishly laughing at the mess he (and his cyber-team) helped create in the United States.

And, let's not forget the other Trump lists, which include the list of 15 (or more) women who have accused Trump of sexual harassment and assault; or the list of lies Trump has told. Oh yeah, and I forgot about the videotape in which Trump, laughingly, admits to grabbing women's crotches. What I don't understand is why Trump is not in jail?

However, -- stay tuned -- although we wish we didn't have to stay tuned to this circus from hell! As the saying goes, "Elect a clown; expect a circus!"

I have been working full time for 32 years now, mostly in the private sector but also three years with the state. I have seen people fired, and escorted out of the building immediately, without any chance to collect personnel belongings (they were boxed and sent to them later). I've seen it done in person, and done over the phone. But never by an email, and sure the hell never by a tweet on the internet.

Times have changed Gunnar. Many forms of communication, I guess it is just his way of only saying it once instead of a multi-media blitz.

It is possible that Rex Tillerson was fired because, as of Tuesday, he was the only person in the Trump Administration to talk tough about Russia's poisoning of the ex-spy and others in Britain calling it "a really egregious act" At least Tillerson knows that the United States has obligations as the leader of the free world and as a member of NATO; and Tillerson understands that Great Britain is our ally.

Trump still has not spoken about Russia, Putin or the attack.

We are waiting and waiting and still waiting from a comment from Trump!

This is what former Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, said about Russia before he was fired by a Trump tweet!

Snowy: I'll just let Tillerson speak for himself and Trump not speak for himself! Not hate, Snowy! Just facts spoken straight from the horses' mouth.

Or, put in a slightly more complicated way:

Res Ipsa Loquitur which is Latin for "the thing speaks for itself." (Or, in Trump's case "the thing doesn't speak for itself."

Not hate, Snowy! Just facts! Unless you don't believe your own eyes and ears!

If there is a God snowy, you'll be treated by someone someday like Trump treats other people. I'm guessing you'll find it a terrible injustice.
