Remember last December, when Donald Trump unloaded on former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson?

Well, this morning, he was at it again:

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.

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