Trump Strikes Back at Tillerson: “Dumb As a Rock” and “Lazy As Hell”

President Donald Trump blasted his former secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, on Twitter on Friday, calling Tillerson “dumb as a rock” and “lazy as hell.” Trump added he “couldn’t get rid of him fast enough.”

“Mike Pompeo is doing a great job, I am very proud of him. His predecessor, Rex Tillerson, didn’t have the mental capacity needed. He was dumb as a rock and I couldn’t get rid of him fast enough. He was lazy as hell. Now it is a whole new ballgame, great spirit at State!” Trump tweeted.

Trump’s attack on Tillerson follows public remarks Tillerson made in Houston on Thursday, where he criticized Trump on a variety of issues.

“So often, the president would say here’s what I want to do and here’s how I want to do it and I would have to say to him, ‘Mr. President, I understand what you want to do but you can’t do it that way. It violates the law,'” Tillerson said on Thursday, according to The Hill. “I’d say here’s what we can do. We can go back to Congress and get this law changed. And if that’s what you want to do, there’s nothing wrong with that. I told him I’m ready to go up there and fight the fight, if that’s what you want to do.”
