Washington, D.C. Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after President Trump fired his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and announced CIA Director Mike Pompeo as his replacement:
Secretary Tillersons firing sets a profoundly disturbing precedent in which standing up for our allies against Russian aggression is grounds for a humiliating dismissal. President Trumps actions show that every official in his Administration is at the mercy of his personal whims and his worship of Putin.
It is no wonder that the President has trouble attracting high-caliber people to his Administration when he undercuts and humiliates those he supposedly respects.
Whenever Tillersons successor goes into meetings with foreign leaders, his credibility will be diminished as someone who could be here today and gone tomorrow. Continuity in our diplomatic personnel and policies are vital for championing American security, values, and interests.
Tillersons successor must approach the grave threat of Russian foreign aggression with the seriousness and urgency that it demands. As Director Pompeo has stated, he has every expectation Russia will attack our democracy again. America must be ready.
Nancy, FOAD you bug-eyed freak!
Nancy go stick something in your mouth.
In the movie the “Godfather”, Mikey told Tom Haden that he
was out as consigliere because he needed a ‘War Time’ consigliere. Who better as a War Time consigliere than Pompeo, a West Point Grad, Director of the CIA, and a Trump supporter? Nancy Pelosi is an old fool. She will be gone soon and wants to be remembered..
Dems don’t like it means it was a great decision!
Don’t be too tough on her. She suffers from a self inflicted condition known as Botoxicity.
Apparently it has disastrous affects on the brain.
This is BS.
Tillerson likely got drunk and couldn’t work the other day, so Trump fired him.
Now that Nancy has weighed in with her take on this situation, there seems to be no need for any other Dem leaders (???) to say anything.
And she has successfully set up the theme for the MSM to carry this story clear into next month.
OK, now I support Trump’s move even more!
They are mad because President Trump did not follow protocol.
In the past if you ran for President and lost the primary you would get a consolation prize, Secretary of State. It didn’t matter if you sucked at it. It was just a place to hang out until you could run for President again.
President Trump actually demands results from everybody he hires and they can’t handle the truth.
Can’t wait for pea brain pelosi’s have her humiliating dismissal?
Although, it will only come when she drops over dead.
I thought the Democrats objected to Tillerson when he was first appointed because they thought he was TOO cozy with Putin?
Tillerson is part of the deep state, and was said to have made frequent disparaging remarks about President Trump. Yet he had no clue that his job might be on the line?
Says the idiot that disrespects and undercuts the President every time she gets the chance.
Nancy has a brain? Could have fooled me.
Its like listening to gramma go on-and-on about the goddamn Kaiser and the gaddamn Krauts. You just let her go and try to ignore it. Knowing she will fall asleep soon
STFU you decrepit old hag.
Maybe Tillerson screwed up with his recent remark blaming Russia for the UK attack on that former spy?
When people can’t do their job they get fired how Pelosi still has her job nobody knows.
