The manner in which he did it goes against every everything we’ve heard about him. That’s what no one wants to acknowledge – he’s not who he says he is and does not live up to the myth.

^^^THIS!
Fart for freedom, fart for liberty and fart proudly.  - Benjamin Franklin

...Obsta principiis—Nip the shoots of arbitrary power in the bud, is the only maxim which can ever preserve the liberties of any people. When the people give way, their deceivers, betrayers and destroyers press upon them so fast that there is no resisting afterwards. The nature of the encroachment upon [the] American constitution is such, as to grow every day more and more encroaching. Like a cancer, it eats faster and faster every hour." - John Adams, February 6, 1775

It was not unprecedented, at all. He pulled the same stunt while Comey was across the country. He can fire anyone he appoints (with the exception of judges) at anytime for any reason.  The manner in which he did it goes against every everything we’ve heard about him. That’s what no one wants to acknowledge – he’s not who he says he is and does not live up to the myth. The sooner people realize that, the better. He’s a massive fraud. This and other things he’s done have given us a peek beneath the very thin veneer.

I meant "unprecedented" in the sense that nobody has ever done that before.  And thanks for providing a good example.
I will NOT comply.

If there's one thing Trump is not it's a fraud.  We know exactly who and what he is.

Sure, it only depends on what year it is.

Oh, I knew what you meant CL. :laugh:  I just wanted to note this wasn’t the first time he did something similar.

I'm confused.  How, exactly, does it go against everything we heard (and know) about him?  He is brash, no BS tolerated, unconventional and certainly not a "follower of precedent or tradition" in his methodology.   So please explain how this (how he fired Rex) is a surprise to ANYONE.  And for the record, I would have fired Comey and Rex in a much more "harsh" manner, if possible...lol.

It would appear to people predisposed to not liking Trump what just occurred was a terrible thing, without precedent.  To people predisposed to loving Trump it was a heaping helping of just desserts.  To everybody else it was just another "trumped up" story to give people something to fight about for days, with the only beneficiaries liberals who hate all our collective guts.   :shrug:

I'm not in either group.  But you already know I'm opposed to and 100% against the idiot/radical left, so....

It’s not that he fired them - it’s how.  He waited until Comey was across the country in CA, giving a speech.  He learned about it on TV.  Similarly, he tweeted and made sure he was far away before he called Tillerson.  That’s not bold or brash, it’s gutless.  He had reasons to dismiss each, but did it in the most feeble way possible.

Will the world keep turning?  Of course.  However, I’m fed up with the sycophants talking about how ballsy he is, when it’s so demonstrably false.  Many of us warned about his duplicity before the election and are vigilant of it now, but get accused of all manner of things.  If we sound strident at times, it’s to be heard above the din of adulation.

Well... I guess I am much less concerned (couldn't care less, actually).... about the hurt feewings of the idiot left (Comey) and of an underling that works against their boss (for whatever reason).

Trump has enough real 'flaws' to address without caring about how he fires some ahole that worked against him.  Just sayin....

Right, but we’re supposed to judge him on the things he does. Here’s something he did that is opposite of who he’s supposed to be. Eventually that’s going to bite us on something in the form of policy.  Just sayin.....

Are you seriously saying that it's not fraud for someone to sell you a box of rocks labeled as a laptop, as long as some people realize he's a liar?!? 

Just wow.

So, the definition of fraud varies from job field to job field?  Good to know.

I thought you might’ve been exaggerating, so I looked it up.  Damned if she didn’t spin wildly....


“Rex Tillerson’s cozy relationship with the Kremlin is especially alarming in light of his attitude toward sanctions over Russia’s aggressive behavior in Europe, while at the same time the President-elect continues to side with Russia over the judgment of the U.S. intelligence community,” she wrote Dec. 13, 2016. “Fawning over Putin is poor preparation for being the top diplomat of the United States of America.”


“Secretary Tillerson’s firing sets a profoundly disturbing precedent in which standing up for our allies against Russian aggression is grounds for a humiliating dismissal,” the California Democrat wrote. “President Trump’s actions show that every official in his Administration is at the mercy of his personal whims and his worship of Putin.”
