    And perhaps THE last adult, if not the ONLY adult in the Abominable Administration who had the balls to stand up to Trump is now gone, replaced by yet another spineless lackey who'll kowtow to Dolt45 and gleefully kiss his orange ass. God only knows what this will mean for diplomatic relations overseas, especially with North Korea.

    If that's not enough, we've got a dragon lady with the hots for torture running the CIA. Oh, great. Where is Jack Ryan when we need him?

    Nikki Haley is pretty much the only one left I have any sort of respect for.

    Tillerson's exit has long been suspected and Trump suggested a bit ago that more changes were coming. Not to mention, he's tremendously unpopular (among the diplomatic circles) for how he ran the State Dept.

    I liked Tillerson some, but can also see why this is happening. Pompeo and Trump seem to have a clearer connection and Pompeo is likely to lead the State Dept more traditionally as far as staffing and etc.
    Thank you AMericA for votinG for chAnge.

    This is the part that NRA fanatics (as opposed to the more sane members) don't want people to know about. Even the wounded survivors frequently are maimed with horrible injuries by the sheer velocity of the bullets coming from the military style rifles.

    We can only hope that our allies have patience with us.

    Only thing is, Pompeo may be even mroe hard line against Russia than Tillerson. Unless Trump makes Pompeo drink the Orange Russian Kool Aide.

    Meanwhile, as this insanity is going down, Trump says this regarding Theresa May...

    "As soon as we get the facts straight, if we agree with them, we will condemn Russia or whoever it may be."
    If you agree with the facts...


    So ICE is out a spokesperson and we just lost the Secretary of State. How many people will be gone before the end of the week?

    I suspect that's already happened. Trump doesn't like subordinates who don't toe his company line, that's why Tillerson got the boot. Look for Pompeo to quickly join Dolt45's "Russia is innocent" chorus.

    It's so awesome that so many people decided to abstain from voting in 2016 as some sort of bullshit protest. As a result, we have the awesomeness that has been 2017/2018.

    Thanks, guys.
