I was thinking this was related but read that this was in the works Friday before Tillerson said that.Still a lot of turnover. 1st woman to run the CIA.


Trump ousts Tillerson, will replace him as secretary of state with CIA chief Pompeo

You might be correct, but this incident might be the straw that broke the camel's back.

Its difficult to see how government can run effectively with this constant turnover. Tillerson's ouster effectively made an entire year's worth of work meaningless. Now its back to square one. No foreign country will want to engage in meaningful diplomacy if they think the next guy will be gone in a year too.

Trump hates the way government works with its assorted checks and balances and protocols. This is his way of exercising control. Petulant children do this. If they don't get their way they have a tantrum.

Eventually no one will want to work for him. Betsy deVoss will be the next one to go probably.
