Trump Just Fired State Employee For Spilling The Beans On How Tillerson Was Dismissed


President Donald Trump fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Tuesday via tweet, announcing to the world that CIA Director Mike Pompeo would be taking his place.

But, what you may not have known was that he also fired State Department spokesperson Steve Goldstein shortly afterward for leaking sensitive information surrounding the whole event.

Goldstein emailed to reporters what really happened: Tillerson had no idea he was about to be fired. Not only that but Trump wasn’t even man enough to pick up the phone and give him the courtesy of a farewell, or a reason. As far as Tillerson knows, he was doing a good job. Here was the statement:

“The Secretary had every intention of staying because of the critical progress made in national security. He will miss his colleagues at the the [sic] Department of State and the foreign ministers he has worked with throughout the world.

The Secretary did not speak to the President and is unaware of the reason, but he is grateful for the opportunity to serve, and still believes strongly that public service is a noble calling.

We wish Secretary Designate Pompeo well.”

Chances are Trump was upset that Tillerson called the president “a moron.” This isn’t just speculation, either. Tillerson has refused to deny it during numerous television interviews on the subject. He all but admitted to it by refusing to lie about making the statement. At least we can say Tillerson isn’t a liar.

Trump was asked if this was the real reason by a reporter shortly before hopping on Marine One to go to California. The president either couldn’t hear her or just didn’t want to answer the question.

REPORTER: Did you fire him because he called you a moron?

TRUMP: What?

REPORTER: Did you fire him because he called you a moron?

TRUMP: Say it again.

To be fair, Tillerson didn’t just call him ‘a moron’ he called him an ‘f-ing moron.’

And, that was just something Trump could not accept.

Trump’s official response, however, was that he needed someone who was on the ‘same wavelength as him.’ He didn’t specify much about Rex Tillerson other than to say ‘I wish him well, he’s a good man.’

He says that Rex and he talked about this for quite a long time, making it seem like the firing was mutual, but Trump left out the fact that he dumped Tillerson without even telling him about it first.

I guess we’re just going to have to keep relying on ‘Fake News’ to get the real news.

Let’s grab ’em by the midterms!
