What could go badly here? And what could go even more so with the new CIA chief whose reputation for torture and secret detention facilities is well known? Oh, wait! Trump probably likes that just fine.
I don't trust Pompeo, but then I found this article: "Pompeo is sometimes described as a Trump loyalist, but that is nonsense: No one is loyal to Trump—he is too indecent a human being to attract such normal personal attachments.
The administration is not divided into people who are loyal to Trump and those who are not. Rather, it is divided between those who know how to manipulate his vanity, his hatreds, his sensitivities, and those who do not. It is divided between those who think he is their ticket to fame and fortune and those who hope to survive this episode with their reputations more or less intact. It is divided, at the most fundamental level, between those willing to sell their souls completely and at a discount in the service of a man who is doing great damage to American norms and institutions, and those who are trying to get something for their country in return for the slices of honor and integrity that every day they reluctantly consign to the flames."
He'll run the State Department as well as Pruitt is running the EPA. Or DeVos running the Department of Education. Or Carson running HUD. Or.... oy, our diplomatic efforts are doomed.... 😑
Yeah, what could possibly go wrong? But really, at this point it is just musical chairs. They are all inept, unqualified morons intent on destroying everything that made this country good.
I think Rex Tillerson was one of the only half-decent members of this chaotic administration, and now he's gone!
That #FoxInTheHenHouse, Scott Pruitt, of the #EPA and the truly incompetent Betsy DeVos of the Education Department need to be given the pink slip!
Just yesterday Tillerson joined U.K. condemning Russia about the nerve agent attack against the double agent. Today Tillerson is gone. What more reasoning do we need that the orange man is a Russian spy. We are doomed
I’m shocked that Trump didn’t make Denis Rodman his new Secretary of State, given his penchant for putting completely unqualified people in top govt posts
All you need to do is find some his older videos , it doesn't look like a great position for that type of mindset , well if there were hoping for a end of times outlook it may sound really good to some .
Trump is getting ready to make war on North Korea, mostly to stop the Russia investigation, or deflect our attention from it. With a hawk like Pompeo running the State Dept. we should all be very concerned. And the Queen of Torture, Gina Haskell, is taking over the CIA. http://fortune.com/2018/03/13/gina-haspel-director-cia/
Which no doubt explains Trump naming him to the position requiring the most care and intelligence in thinking before acting or speaking. Always find the person who will be the very worst at what needs to be done. Look at DeVos, Pruitt, and Zinke to name a few.
