The latter part you don't know.....


That is correct. I have seen no evidence of flowers. Perhaps Trump will bring some to the meeting. I hope his cultural advisor suggests chrysanthemums.
I disagree.  Circle gets the square.

Fox news reporting Trump requested Tillerson to submit his resignation last Friday.

So the tweet story is false

I certainly think T-Rex did a good job, on Ukraine and other issues. Somewhere there is something and he was reported to have been in hot water before.

Usually, I like it when there is an amicable split-up and something like this is said "We thank him for the work he has done."

Probably a mixture of both stories actually.
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Here lies in honored glory an American soldier, known but to God

THE ESTABLISHMENT IS THE PROBLEM...NOT THE SOLUTION

John McEntee...seems he was going to have some issues getting a full security clearance.


Maybe he was a leaker. Watch out for the quiet ones.

Trump did not speak to Tillerson.  By the time today is over, the sequence of events will come together as they happened.

Well since the tweet came out yesterday or today I don't see how that is a mixture.

No Tillerson said this to make Trump look bad.

Is this to deny this message was not even relayed to Tillerson. That is what is important and I'm sure he was told somehow, not just by some flunkee but officially.

That's well-possible. Sort of like Hope Hicks, she seemed to have done well but apparently said something that were called "white lies".  And then, the case of Bannon, apparently airing some of his own feelings and opinions in an interview.

There is probably something.

Who knows? Back in November, there were various news reports Pompeo was being prepped to replace Tillerson. The White House denied it. In January, they said Gary Cohn would be there for the duration.  Now, the story is he only wanted to stick around until tax reform was passed. The story always changes.

Interesting....

Why would Trump Fire Tillerson today just as polls open in the PA special election? The republican candidate must be bashing his head against the wall right now. This election is being seen as a referendum on Trumos presidency and now the news all day is “White House in chaos (again). He could have at least waited until the polls closed tonight before announcing the firing.

They have internal polling at their disposal. I'm sure it was a foregone conclusion the district would be lost.

Possibly.  Reports are that John Kelly called Tillerson on Friday and told him this would happen.  The timing was unclear.  Then Trump tweeted this out morning which may have surprised Tillerson (relative to timing).

@Concerned that's especially true in this administration since it appears the President doesn't like hearing the word no.


Well, let's see what the president has to say about that.....


'We were not really thinking the same. With Mike, Mike Pompeo, we have a very similar thought process. I think it's going to go very well.'

He gushed that the future secretary as Mike Pompeo has 'tremendous energy, tremendous intellect, we're always on the same wavelength. The relationship has been very good.'

The president had tweeted earlier that Pompeo 'will do a fantastic job!'

I don't know why anyone who knows anything about man-child Trump would be surprised by any inappropriate tweet he makes.

Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

@Victoria33

I agree with you, by the end of the day we'll know quite a bit more.  That's why I am resisting jumping to any conclusions, like "Trump didn't tell Tillerson."  I'd like to not look like a fool at the end of the day....

(Besides, everybody knows I'm a Foole.   :shrug: )
I will NOT comply.

More details from a report here with a named source:

Quote
A senior White House official has told CNN that President Trump asked Chief of Staff John Kelley to call Rex Tillerson on Friday night.

The official said Kelly told Tillerson that he will be replaced but did not specify the timing. It was Trump’s decision to pull the trigger Tuesday morning, which underscored their fraught relations.

"This is how the President wanted to do it," the official said — a reflection of how the man who became famous saying "you’re fired" actually rarely does it in person.

Steve Goldstein, State Department undersecretary of public affairs, confirmed that Tillerson got a call on Friday night from Kelly with a heads up, but Goldstein did not elaborate. Goldstein insists that Tillerson was notified of the official termination in the tweet this morning.
