President Trump: Rex Tillerson Was Dumb as a Rock, Lazy as Hell

This included calling Tillerson "dumb as a rock".

Fox News host Shepard Smith was stunned on Friday to see that a "rhetorical war" was "heating up between Rex Tillerson and the president".

He doesn't speak for me.


The former secretary of State also said he believed Trump was able to win the presidency because the public is disengaged on many important issues.

The US President lashed out at Mr Tillerson in an unprecedented series on insults published earlier today on Twitter.

Reports later surfaced that, actually, Tillerson had called Trump, "a f**king moron".

Tillerson, 66, was sacked from the White House in March after rumors of a rift between him and Trump had been circulating for some time. In leaving, Tillerson said Washington, D.C., can be a "very mean-spirited town". "I told him I'm ready to go up there and fight the fight, if that's what you want to do", he added.

Trump fired Tillerson in March after a rocky stint as America's top diplomat.

It's been almost nine months since former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson lost his job by tweet, and now he's sharing some tidbits about his experience as the nation's top diplomat. Tillerson, at one point reportedly called Trump a "moron". He will do a fantastic job! Though he had been forewarned that Mr Trump was unhappy with him, he learned of his dismissal through a tweet in which Mr Trump congratulated Mr Pompeo and concluded with a breezy, "Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service!" Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, and the first woman so chosen.

Tillerson also said at the Houston event that "there's no question" Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 presidential election.

"I'd have to say to him, 'Well Mr. President, I understand what you want to do, but you can't do it that way".

Asked about his reading habits in an interview shortly after taking office, Trump said he was "looking at a book" but was distracted by phone calls every time he tried to get started.

Trump voiced anger hours later in a harsh tweet, saying that Tillerson "didn't have the mental capacity needed" to be the top U.S. diplomat. He said Tillerson "didn't have the mental capacity needed for the job" while praising Tillerson's replacement, Mike Pompeo. He was lazy as hell.

"Now it is a whole new ballgame, great spirit at State!" he said.
