    Pompeo will be no better. He is a Republican hardliner who shares Trump’s pugnacious worldview.

    In September 2017, Pompeo said in his official capacity as CIA Director, that U.S. intelligence agencies had concluded that Russian interference did not affect the outcome of the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

    He directly contradicted U.S. intelligence agencies, which in January, said that they had made no assessment one way or the other on the impact of Moscows hacking and propaganda campaign but its report stated that Russias aim was to try and help then-Republican candidate Donald Trumps election chances.

    He is just another Trumpist tool.

    Tillerson was a terrible pick to start with and then he was undermined by his own President the whole time he was in office.

    See ya Rex! You guys should have used the 25th when you had the chance!

    (CNN)President Donald Trump's longtime personal aide John McEntee was fired and escorted from the White House on Monday, three sources with knowledge of the matter told CNN.Two sources said McEntee was pushed out because of issues with his security clearance, making him the latest aide to be forced out because of difficulties obtaining a permanent security clearance.
    The Wall Street Journal first reported his exit.
    Minutes later, the Trump campaign announced McEntee would be joining the reelection effort as a senior adviser for campaign operations.

    Things don't get better with this gang as they retreat deeper into the fortress of solitude. Pompeo will be denied the joy of gutting his staff as Tillerson did him the courtesy pf presiding over the dissolution of the State Department. Now all Pompeo needs to do is sit in the back of the car and bob his head in sync with the road irregularities.

    We are so screwed.
    Maybe we'll see a ray of sunshine with the PA congressional election today.
    Trump feels he's going to lose that one, so fires Tillerson today rather then another time to distract everyone.

    This McEntee story is seriously f-ed up. He’s escorted out of the Whitehouse without even being able to take his coat but the trump campaign hired him within minutes? They didn’t even have the decency to wait a couple of days.

    ..and people think that my upside-down flag avitar is inappropriate?

    Unbelievable.

    I gather that Pompeo never called two scoops a moron. That has to count for something.

    Wasn't Tillerson part of that supposed mutual suicide pact? Will the others resign?

    Pompeo will probably be more in line with Trumps belligerent approach in diplomacy. Should help strengthen ties between China and Iran.

    Trump wants results.
    this is why he was voted in and HC not.

    he can arrange and rearrange his staff all he wants...
    look at any business, people are removed all the time..

    Trump is loyal to this country unlike any president since Reagan.

    Loves the flag not like commies...
