I liked this:

“When we as people, a free people, go wobbly on the truth — even on what may seem the most trivial of matters — we go wobbly on America,” Tillerson said.

When a significant percentage of our population dismisses facts as fake news, we are truly in trouble. When they see opinion as the equal of known facts, we fail as a country. Wishful thinking is no substitute for the truth, no matter how many times those wishes are repeated. Policy cannot be based on false information, imaginary data, or outright lies.


It is almost comical - the idea of Tillerson and the truth even being in the same universe together...Lol...   But I guess it takes one to know one, so who better to identify what Trump truly is.  Even if we hadn't already known...

I don’t share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

Most of us, even his supporters, knew during the campaign that he had a tenuous relationship with the truth. And after he won, many hoped the campaign rhetoric would be jettisoned for a more reasoned, thoughtful approach to policy making and international relations, but it was not to be.

Trump got a "sizable birthday gift.."  from a Russian.  Right after they asked him to get the Magnitsky Act repealed.

He took the gift, but actually has been unusually lawful in supporting the act - that has to be a new sensation for Trump.  That's gotta sting Russia...

The Maginstsky act passed in the senate 92-4

It'll take an act of congress to repeal.

Yeah.   But he appears to be actively supporting and enforcing it.  That is the amazing thing to me.

Like this broken-hearted trump supporter?

A man accused of shouting “anti-Trump rhetoric” and opening fire early Friday in the lobby of Florida’s Trump National Doral Golf Club was hitting the like button on pro-Trump social-media pages up until days before the incident.
