Rex Tillerson calls Trump an unethical liar, to an audience of VMI grads

Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson made it clear today to an audience of young, military graduates what he thinks of the man who he had to pretend to respect for the last year and a half:

Speaking to soon-to-be graduates of the Virginia Military Institute on Wednesday, Tillerson dropped this truth bomb:

"If our leaders seek to conceal the truth, or we as people become accepting of alternative realities that are no longer grounded in facts, then we as American citizens are on a pathway to relinquishing our freedom."

There was no doubt Tillerson was speaking about Trump, whose delusional pathology Tillerson obviously now views as a threat to the country:

"A responsibility of every American citizen to each other is to preserve and protect our freedom by recognizing what truth is and is not, what a fact is and is not and begin by holding ourselves accountable to truthfulness and demand our pursuit of America’s future be fact-based — not based on wishful thinking, not hoped-for outcomes made in shallow promises, but with a clear-eyed view of the facts as they are, and guided by the truth that will set us free to seek solutions to our most daunting challenges."

He also warned about a “crisis of ethics and integrity in our society and among our leaders,” again unmistakably referring to Trump.

But a crisis is something unexpected. Tillerson walked into Trump’s cesspool with his eyes wide open. It wasn’t a “crisis” he was witnessing but an ongoing sickness.  His responsibility to the country he purports to care about was not to call that out after the fact but denounce it immediately. Which is why the reaction to his speech has mostly been, “too little too late.

GRAB ‘EM BY THE PAYMENTS A new financial disclosure document reveals Trump paid his attorney Michael Cohen more than $100,000 to reimburse a payment made to a third party — an apparent reference to the $130,000 Cohen paid to porn star Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about an alleged affair. However, Trump should have revealed his payment on last year’s financial disclosure form, an omission that has been referred to the Department of Justice by the Office of Government Ethics.
