Well the good news for Ireland in all this is that, since blind loyalty is clearly at such a premium in Washington these days, it now seems only a matter of time before Wagmore, Trainwreck or Dame Enda get a phonecall offering them some big job in the WH.
You think it's a surprise that varadkar went to the repository in Dallas?

Leo will be lucky if Trump doesn't try to fire him on St Patricks Day
Tillerson called Trump a moron and wasn't fired.
Says Russia responsible for chem attack in UK, is fired.

Only one of those statements has a remote possibility of being untrue.

How Tillerson didn't quit before he was fired I will never know given that he was dealing with clueless Trump.
Money, plain and simple. Exxonmobil had a $500 billion deal in place with Russia before sanctions were introduced by Obama. The deal would have netted $7 trillion, yes that is trillion, in revenue to both Exxonmobil and Russia. As the ex CEO of Exxonmobil, that is a strong incentive to hang around.

More likely that he knew he was about to be sacked, so left this steaming turd for Trump?
You can't have Us secs of state commenting on internal British or Russian security matters AND MAKING THREATS.

TRUMP had to fire him.

are you suggesting Putin called the shot?
What would be wrong with that?

It seems Tillerson was waving his penknife at the Russians.

He had to go and if Mr. Trump saw fit to consult the Russians on the matter all to the good.

Exactly , Trump well within his rights to hire and fire who he wants in his cabinet.

And as Trump has just explained he still has a good personal relationship with Tillerson but they just have a diverging opinion on policy and strategy and the way forward and you need everyone pulling in the same direction , the new man Pompeo more shares Trumps views on policy and strategy going forward.

The President is head of state and presumably speaks for the nation on international affairs.

When secs of state get above themselves and endanger international relations by pretending to be big chiefs then they have to be sacked .

It,s all quite normal you know.
