On Sunday, Rex Tillerson did something to Senator John McCain that we have all been thinking about for a while. We have all got a few sharp words for McCain and they have now been personally delivered by Tillerson.
Tillerson is no doubt a loyal man and one of the best in President Trump’s cabinet. While on the other hand we have McCain who has his own liberal following and is giving the foreign nations large amount of United States without a question.
McCain tried to shame the secretary in a recent New York Times opinion piece, suggesting Tillerson was killing off our overseas allies, one oppression policy at our time. And like a giant hand swatting a pesky fruit fly, Tillerson shot back: You don’t know what you’re talking about, John.
Here’s the backstory. McCain, in his opinion piece, blamed Tillerson for advancing policies that were “simply transactional” and not based on U.S. values.
“Tillerson [has] sent a message to oppressed people everywhere, ‘Don’t look to the United States for hope,’ ” McCainwrote a week ago. “Our values make us sympathetic to your plight, and when it’s convenient we might officially express that sympathy.”
The rhetoric was a bit harsh for a secretary of state who is simply trying to forge national diplomacy that was based, as President Donald Trump has called for across the board, an America first way of doing business. In other words, Tillerson isn’t planning on running his State Department as a bleeding heart liberal humanitarian assistance program.
Each time Rex speaks people fall in love with him even more than before. He is a straight shooter and we must agree that McCain deserves even more than this. McCain without a doubt needs to sit down and shut up forever.
