Secretary of State Rex Tillerson just ripped Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) for his bizarre comments earlier this week saying that President Trump had “castrated” the Secretary.
When Tillerson was asked about the comment on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday morning, he drying replied:
“I checked, I’m fully intact.”
Boom. As Corker just found out, no one can put you on a slow burn like Rex Tillerson.
Corker had excoriated the president over his foreign policy with North Korea in an interview with Washington Post, saying:
“You cannot publicly castrate your own secretary of State without giving yourself that binary choice.”
“The tweets — yes, you raise tension in the region [and] it’s very irresponsible. But it’s the first part that I am most exercised about.”
Corker was referring to a news conference in Beijing in which Rex Tillerson said the United States had attempted to start communication with North Korea about its nuclear program, to no avail.
The next day President Trump tweeted that Tillerson was “wasting his time” attempting to talk to North Korea.
Tillerson lept to the president’s defense, however, saying that President Trump just has an unusual style of communicating that people are not used to because it is so radical:
“The last thing anybody likes to do in this town is make a decision,” he said. “Because when you make a decision, you’re suddenly accountable for that decision.”
“I am fully committed to his objectives, I agree with his objects, I agree with what he’s trying to do. How he wants to use his own skills, tactically to push things towards change, I’m here to help him.“
Check out his full interview, the part where he addresses Corker begins at 15:00:
Despite what the media and RINOs like Corker want us to believe, the president’s cabinet is stronger than ever.
