Why does Trump do this?

This is exactly the kind of thing that plays into the lefts narrative with gullible voters. Tillerson isnt a bad guy, and hardly part of the swamp. These people are ALL going to go out and make the MSNBC / View talk show circuit. I'm not sure I can chalk this up to "playing 3D chess".

Doubtless there is a story or series of stories behind this. This is a leadership style we haven't seen too much of lately but to be honest I don't have a real problem with it personally. Consider the possibility that it's a tactic to keep the other team off balance. As in the more they scream about stuff that doesn't matter the less credibility they're gonna have when they finally do stumble across something that does. The Donald does seem to understand the wisdom behind the approach of not getting in the way when the other guys are running the ball in the wrong direction.

Well,

Two alpha males that don't communicate well is never a recipe for success. Hopefully the next guy and Pres Trump are on the same page.

It probably didn't help when Tillerson called Trump a moron awhile back.

Trump is a builder. Folks who don't perform as needed have to go. When you are building a country you have to have someone on board with the direction you want to go and so many just don't fit in to what needs to be done. Tillerson did his part in cleaning out the culls but never put together an organization that starts over. By putting in the head of the CIA they are bringing secrecy back to the organization. Putting a woman in the CIA is really going to change things too.

Let me add to that, Trump is under an 8 year contract to get things done. He has deadlines to meet and if the contractors that come in can't perform then they have to go. It's what real work and progress look like, when you work for a builder you better meet his schedule.

Trump wants someone like Kerry was for Obama.

I never liked Trump although I voted for him,,, he is probably the right man for our times.

Funny shit. When tillerson was put in and people were sacked ..or those grubermint careerists quit in protest the liberal media hated him...he was a trump puppet to those toads. Now they all oh so love him because he was allegedly slighted by trump for being canned. Boo fugging hoo. He was a political appointee...you serve at the presidents discretion... for better for worse.

Evidentially everyone’s memory is suffering. Tillerson was constantly at odds with President Trump. Tillerson would more than a few times contradict President Trump and at not very good times or places. Good move Mr. President!
Next to go will be Sessions.

Trump needs a grizzly bear. Not a teddy bear. His needs have changed since the flathead nork has suddenly decided to meet with Trump, and Rex just didn't seem to have teeth.

If he fired 500 top DC bureaucrats I'd be very pleased.

Tillerson wasn't a bad guy. He just wasn't the right guy. Don't pee yourself over it.

T-Rex didn't exactly live up to his moniker..
President Trump is mission and goal oriented. You ain't "on mission" or seeing the same goals as him,you're thru. You're either a help to him or a hindrance.
Trump is the first president in like,forever,to actually make the people around him work for a living. Like kids in a school with a perpetual substitute teacher,once the real thing takes the job,everybody bitches,but in the end,it's what needed to happen. Rex will be fine. Now if only he could light a Roman candle under Jeff Sessions butt. There is enough obvious evidence alone to have Hillary banished to Neptune,let alone the stuff we haven't seen.

The best news is that the new, designated head of the CIA, does not eat humus, and worked for "Felix the Hammer", back in the day.

I was shocked when former CIA head, muslim loving John Brennan, just endorsed her.

The Iran Nuke Treaty is about to be blown to bits, and Pompeo will do it.

CPR's take.

I see it differently. The firing of Secretary of State Tillerson, the movement of CIA Director Pompeo to Secretary of State, and the promotion of Gina Haspel, who oversaw the secret CIA torture prisons in Thailand, indicate that the military/security complex has closed its grip on the Trump regime. There will be no more talk of normalizing relations with Russia.

The combination of the Israel Lobby, the neoconservatives, and the military/security complex have proven to be too powerful for peace to be established between the two nuclear powers. If you look at Trump’s administration, the above three forces are those in charge.

Even Trump ain't in complete control of Trump, and now all these so-called "dark forces" are in control of Trump????

News flash J, them spies do all sorts of spy shit, far more than anyone outside that world will ever know.

There are certain jobs being done where you don;t want Mary Poppins in charge.

From what we know, which ain't much, this old gal is one rough and tough hard case, mean, nasty, and not to be fugged with.

Thank G-d we still got a few of these left to wage the quiet wars being fought daily.

News flash, There really are bad people in this world looking to harm us all, you don;t fight them with one hand tied behind your back.

So what if she nailed a few bad guys balls to a wooden chair.
I'd wager she's put more than a few in grave yards to boot.

No shit!

I've got some issues with the company, but if you're going to have them, what better than one of theirs with 30 years experience doing some rough and tumble shit to head the agency, vs some candy assed politician.

There have been approximately 18,000 sealed indictments issued under Sessions. The number of idictments is supposedly unprecedented. I want to see this unfold.

Well yea, no shit!

Intelligence agencies have never been staffed with Mary Poppins types.

Its the nature of that certain beast.

If ya don;t care for a little water boarding, we can always go back to, line up three, shoot one in the head, then ask our questions, get the answers and then shoot both of them in the head.

Repeat as often as required.
