The media industrial complex (as I like to call it) is hysterical once more, this time asserting that Sec. State Rex Tillerson was fired because he, just hours prior, stated that the poisoning of a UK-based spy had been ordered by Russia.
The media construed Tillerson's ouster to mean that Trump was punishing Tillerson for speaking against Vladimir Putin. So, to the media, it was proof positive that President Trump is indeed Putin's puppet.
Just one snag:
Having worked in the White House, I can say with certainty that there were discussions to let Tillerson go roughly three months ago.
What's more, if you look at the actions Trump has taken with regards to ANWR, the Keystone XL pipeline, NATO, and in arming the Ukrainian government, it can hardly be said that Trump is a friend to Putin.
