Give me a break. The left bent over backwards calling the Tillerson nomination payback to Putin for winning the election for Trump.  Now he's being fired is a nod to Russia?  You can't have it both ways.

Tillerson won’t fight Russian election meddling

The Kremlin reportedly wanted a more accommodating secretary of state than Mitt Romney.

The question is whether these two stories are connected. In other words, was Tillerson Russia’s preferred secretary of state? And if so, are the Russians in fact getting just what they wanted? And, therefore, should Special Counsel Robert Muller be looking into how Tillerson came to be nominated?

Significantly, few of the recent stories have pointed out that Tillerson has a two decade-long relationship with Russia and Putin. Indeed, at the time Trump nominated Tillerson, former CEO of ExxonMobil, he had been the director of the U.S.-Russian oil firm Neftgas since 1998.

The funny thing is that story was published just last week... LOL!

Confirmation bias is when people use any new piece of data to confirm their existing beliefs.  That is exactly what is happening here.

Sexist- and misogynist-in-chief appoints first-ever female CIA director...wait, what?

Trump's pick for new CIA director is female career spymaster

WASHINGTON –  President Donald Trump's choice to be the first female director of the CIA is a career spymaster who once ran an agency prison in Thailand where terror suspects were subjected to a harsh interrogation technique that the president has supported.

Trump tweeted Tuesday that he would nominate CIA Director Mike Pompeo to replace Rex Tillerson as secretary of state and that he has selected Gina Haspel to replace Pompeo. Haspel, the current deputy CIA director, also helped carry out an order that the agency destroy its waterboarding videos. That order prompted a lengthy Justice Department investigation that ended without charges.

Yes...just like Trump can't be racist or a white nationalist because he has Ben Carson as HUD secretary.

I'm sure appointing the former head of the CIA as Secretary of State is exactly what Russia was hoping for.

Your definition of racism on the Trump thread had lot's of qualifiers and exceptions.  It was, what, five paragraphs long or something? 

My definition is very basic and only seven words long.  Therefore, I'm not giving anybody a free pass (unlike you).

Nope...you have acknowledged that you don't care about racism or what it is and that nuance is not something you care about, especially on social issues.  So, racism doesn't exist and/or matter to you.

You have wished for the deaths of old, Fox-addled white people on this forum many times.  Not as a joke, but as a serious desire on your part.  Your definition of racism, I assume, is meant to justify these desires in your own mind.

Yeah, I'm not a big fan of this pick for that reason.  If she's willing to bend the law on human rights, what else is she capable of?

Seriously...if Rick Perry was unqualified to be the head of the Department of Energy...I don't even have the words to describe his lack of qualifications to be the head of the VA

Quote
Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump has grown irritated with his embattled Veterans Affairs secretary, David Shulkin, and is now making plans to remove him from his post, two sources familiar with the move tell CNN.

Trump has eyed Energy Secretary Rick Perry as a possible replacement, a person familiar with the matter said.

I like her. (surprise).  A little torture is OK with me.   Long ago I used to hang with a few operators in Seal team 6 out of Norfolk.  Long story but when they were doing Sears and Buds I got waterboarded with them.  Not the best experience but certainly not life threatening.  Dems are gonna have to take up a position against the first woman to be nominated to head the agency.  Should be an interesting fight.
