Putin didn’t like Tillerson agreeing with Britain and blaming Russia for poisoning the spy and his daughter. Remember, Putin put Tillerson, “Friend of Russia” in this job to block Russian sanctions and he failed.
Your mission is to "explain the news"? Is that what this hit-job article is doing? I am not surprised to read that Vox comes under the same umbrella as TMZ, the journalism is at the same level.
I don’t how to respond: I’m happy he got fired, but angry he was ever hired & had the chance to gut the State Dept.
He was one of the worst secretaries of state in modern history and did damage that could last a generation, yet he was one of the adults in the room with this administration. Just let that sink in.
Damage that could last a generation??? That pretty much describes the entire Trump administration. The US went from a respected power to a bad joke all within the span of a year. Last statement from Tillerson was that Russia was like behind the chemical attack in the U.K. and the US will stand by its allies. Next day, he’s gone. If that doesn’t tell you who’s calling the shots in your White House, I don’t know what will.
Kissinger was a psychopath who oversaw the policies that knowingly led to the death of millions. I'm sorry this guy sucks but is light years behind that.

This is what can happen when you put people who think running the government is the same as running a for profit business in charge of vital national institutions like the State Department. Turns out that 'downsizing' the State was not a good idea. That said, I'm sure that Trump's reasons for firing Tillerson have little to do with the most damaging elements of Tillerson's tenure. It's more likely he either regarded Tillerson as insufficiently loyal, or wanted to open up the CIA director position so he can install a lackey.
he wants a total lakey in and now he has it in pompeo. check out the new cia director, she has been accused of destroying tapes documenting torture...she is a scary woman!
....que the media hysteria.
With the media focused on the US/North/South Korea situation; it took just enough attention away from the whole build up so Trump can lay down the hammer when no one's looking or expecting it.
I swear to God Trump's a genius.
