It doesn’t look like former secretary of state Rex Tillerson is going to be showing up at any White House parties this month.
Mike Pompeo is doing a great job, I am very proud of him. His predecessor, Rex Tillerson, didn’t have the mental capacity needed. He was dumb as a rock and I couldn’t get rid of him fast enough. He was lazy as hell. Now it is a whole new ballgame, great spirit at State!

Keep in mind that prior to becoming head of the State Department, Tillerson was the CEO of Exxon Mobil.
What level of chess is admitting you hired a dumb as a rock Sec. State? https://t.co/1gDIDFhpX4

We know President Trump isn’t afraid to attack people through Twitter, but this one might have set a new record.

Though Trump’s rhetoric is probably in response to some of the things Tillerson has said about him over time.
ICYMI, this tweet is in response to Tillerson saying that Trump
1. Would often suggest ideas that were against the law
2. That Trump is "undisciplined"
3. "Doesn’t like to read"
4. "Doesn’t read briefing reports, doesn’t like to get into the details of a lot of things" https://t.co/vkgLA6tGX7

It would appear that Trump didn’t particularly care for those comments.
