Trump has criticized Tillerson as "lazy as hell" and "dumb as a rock."

Anyome else notice that Donny's as hominem attacks always describe himself and not the person being attacked?

Tillerson's statement illustrates why he was let go.

It's naive beyond belief.

We'd all like to just get along,

but the duly elected POTUS has been threatened and harassed from day one.

It can never be about coalescing, the goal posts are on different sides of the field.

I would guess some in the CNN echo chamber share your hallucinations.

The poster was talking about the trash that comes directly from Trump’s mouth or his Twitter toilet.

You don’t need any spin here.

By the way, can you finally tell us what we should be watching or reading? I don’t watch or read CNN.

Thanks in advance.

Play the victim card much?

Oversight is not harassment. The media reporting Donny's words and deeds is not harassment.

I wouldn't know because I don't watch or read content from CNN. As for my statement being a hallucination, that is only accuratecti hyperpartisanship with their heads buried in their sands.

Yeah! Why aren't articles that report on Donny's repugnant remarks and corruption more neutral like we get from Breitbart and Fox "News."

Triggered much? Just said it was a neutral article. The article is basically that Tillerson said nothing when you really wanted expected him to bash Trump.

Tillerson doesn't want to do anything that might upset relations with the Russians, particularly the oil company that Putin stole from Kordokovski before having him imprisoned. Rex knows who puts the caviar on his toast.

So Trump supposedly tried to investigate a political rival and you say that is wrong.

aren’t all 2020 Dems using this full of Schiff investigation to get dirt on Trump and hurt his political chances for 2020?

seems every Dem Senator running for President should recuse themselves from any trial as any results could benefit them against a political rival.

US Politics appears to be so divisive - you're either Republican or Democrat and either-side will do their up-most to obtain one up on the other. I wonder how anything ever gets done Politically for the benefit of the US citizens as a whole.

Good ole' Rex just proving he is and was one of the adults in the room - a room now known as Romper Room because it contains only two-year olds....

Consider yourself lucky Rex, you left before the Dimwit and his crazy lawyer decided to abuse their authority by launching a rogue smear campaign - and got caught.

Can't wait for John Bolton to tell us all about that "drug deal"....

You don't get to be president of the United States with virtually the entire establishment, the media, Hollywood and the sitting president of the United States and his wife against you if you're lazy as hell and dumb as a rock.

After the partial China trade deal is announced, the impeachment proceedings are going to look even more ridiculous. Great economy, 50 year low unemployment, no new wars, methodically getting us out of wars predecessors got us into and continued, meeting and having dialogue with KIm Jong Un, better trade deals being negotiated and implemented, and making progress on securing our southern border, all being accomplished in spite of all the opposition and stone walling by the Democrats, RINOS, the media, Hollywood and the former president of the United States and his wife...

Yeah, let's impeach him over a phone call to the president of Ukraine, which the president of Ukraine said was fine. That way we can run against Pence in 2020, thus giving us a fighting chance to win back the White House and return to status quo with China so they can continue to rip us off, and throw open the southern border to anyone who wants to come in, raise taxes on everyone to pay for Medicare For All which will eliminate all private insurance as well as any control at all over your health care, and, what else... oh yeah, ruin the economy.

Trump cracked a bad joke that even his wife wouldn't cry if he was shot dead. Guess she's used them all up with his sleazy bad behaviour.

Not supposedly, did. How many witnesses have corroborated the whistleblower? I don't care if you know who the whistleblower is and how much you try to disparage that person because Donny's own people have corroborated the whistleblower.

Not only is it wrong, it's literally illegal.

aren’t all 2020 Dems using this full of Schiff investigation to get dirt on Trump and hurt his political chances for 2020? 

Yeah, completely equivalency except for the glaring fact that Schiff is a member of the US House and not a foreign government.

seems every Dem Senator running for President should recuse themselves from any trial as any results could benefit them against a political rival.

Then any republican who has already said they would vote for a acquittal should also recuse themselves because they have admitted they are biased and don't care about the evidence. Moscow Mitch . . .

the Democratic-led impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump.

This is a serious disservice to the American people. The Dems are shooting themselves in the foot. It will cost them dearly in Nov 2020.

Exposing corruption by the president is a disservice to us? Weird.

The Dems are shooting themselves in the foot. It will cost them dearly in Nov 2020.

You wish and pray.

We know who the whistleblower is. That’s why schiff won’t give anyone but himself the ability to call witnesses.

Vindman is tainted, partisan and confused about his role. But we can’t call anyone to refute him (like his superior officer) or have the answers to what he was asked out in public. Schiff himself even shut down the line of questions he was asked, acting as defense lawyer.

vindman says trump trying to subvert US foreign policy. ummmm the President determines foreign policy.

so I agree with Rex, how about some unity?

-10 ( +1 / -11 )

Tillerson is correct that the Republicans and Democrats need to work together. The first thing they can achieve together is to get that uneducated, draft dodging, liar out of the White House so that America can regain some credibility.

Maybe we should give a hint to echo chamber residents: The is so-called "whistle blower" is:

Eric Ciaramella

registered democrat

worked for Obama

worked with Joe Biden

worked for John Brennan

known susan rice protege

close associate of anti-Trump partisan Victoria Nuland

helped initiate the Russia "collusion" hoax

history of leaking falsehoods

....yep, just the guy to blow the whistle on third-hand rumours (probably co-authored by Schiff) on the evil doings of orange man.

Bet they did not hear that on CNN / NYT / Guardian / Daily Beast etc etc

Yep Eric and his buddy Sean who was conveniently hired as a Schiff staff member in August 2019......

Oh, you should be looking at the swamp media. I do too. In fact, they are hard to avoid, since Google promotes them.

But you should also check out sources outside the propaganda chorus. There are many, although Silicone valley suppresses them.

Are you ever looking at, for example: Zerohedge, The Duran, Lee Stranahan, Gad Saad, Syriana, The Duran, Scott Adams, BCP, RT, The Jimmy Dore Show, Dave Rubin, Gateway Pundit, Rebel Media, to name a few?

So when those 2 are subpoenaed I wonder what excuse they will use? I can’t testify because.....I’m the whistleblower....oops!

now the Dem savior is Bolton? Haha how did Cohen and Avenatti work out in the savior role? Mueller? Total failure when he testified.

So is leaking classified info, mishandling classified emails, filing false FISA, using fake dossiers as dirt, unmasking US citizens, spying on US citizens, getting tickets to events from media for leaks, on and on.

now you want to enforce the law, huh?

that outing a Whistle lower is a violation of law

Finally! Why were you so coy? Cheers!

I know a few of these. Gad Saad is a very bright and interesting man and his views on the subject of Islam are particularly sharp - I can see where you are getting your views on this from. Dave Rubin isn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer and his blind spots when trying to explain libertarianism can be cringeworthy. Scott Adams should stick to cartoons. I saw his podcast with Sam Harris and his defense of Trump was based purely on his skills as a salesman rather than a president - he was out of his league in this discussion.

I’ll check the others out. Cheers!

So if Bolton is a Repub why would you think he would testify and save the day for this fake Dem impeachment?

You thought the same with Michael Cohen but he was just making up stuff trying to avoid prison. Bolton has no reason to say anything unless you falsely accuse him of something.
