Remember last December, when Donald Trump unloaded on former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson?
Mike Pompeo is doing a great job, I am very proud of him. His predecessor, Rex Tillerson, didn‚Äôt have the mental capacity needed. He was dumb as a rock and I couldn‚Äôt get rid of him fast enough. He was lazy as hell. Now it is a whole new ballgame, great spirit at State!

Well, this morning, he was at it again:
Rex Tillerson, a man who is ‚Äúdumb as a rock‚ÄĚ and totally ill prepared and ill equipped to be Secretary of State, made up a story (he got fired) that I was out-prepared by Vladimir Putin at a meeting in Hamburg, Germany. I don‚Äôt think Putin would agree. Look how the U.S. is doing!

Putting quotes around something he himself said is a very Trumpian touch. Almost as Trumpian as taking a swipe at someone else and ending up being the one who looks bad.

Why on Earth would the president hire a man who is ‚Äúdumb as a rock‚ÄĚ to be the Secretary of State? How dumb does that make the president?

So you hired ‚Äúa man who is as dumb as a rock and totally ill prepared and ill equipped to be Secretary of State‚ÄĚ for the position of Secretary of State?

Then why did you hire him? I thought you only hired the best people? Did you make a mistake? No way, that isn‚Äôt possible because you never make mistakes right?

How did Trump end up hiring all these ‚Äúdumb‚ÄĚ people for senior positions in his administration? https://t.co/ZkyDWmciSK

Donald Trump may think this sort of name-calling makes him look tough, but it ultimately only makes him look petty and incompetent. He‚Äôs basically admitting that he‚Äôs a terrible judge of ability and character. Not exactly the sort of thing that inspires confidence.
"The best people"
