Ok, who remembers what Rex Tillerson said on the way to explaining how he came to be America’s top diplomat?
In case it’s slipped your mind, here’s the quote from an infamous interview published last March:
“I didn’t want this job. I didn’t seek this job.” He paused to let that sink in.
A beat or two passed before an aide piped up to ask him why he said yes.
“My wife told me I’m supposed to do this.”
When Tillerson got home and told his wife, Renda St. Clair, she shook her finger in his face and said, “I told you God’s not through with you.”
That’s right. And as it turns out, Rex isn’t the only one “God” cursed by condemning to a stint of indentured servitude to a reality TV show host and WWE hall of fame inductee who accidentally got himself elected President.
On Thursday, at an event celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Department of Homeland Security, here’s what the former DHS chief said about his “promotion” to White House Chief of Staff:
Yes, John “did something wrong” and now he “guesses” God is punishing him by putting him in charge of babysitting the Trump administration, a job which back in October put Kelly in the decidedly unfortunate situation of having to sit idly by while the President turned his dead son into political cannon fodder. Since then, Kelly has found himself embroiled in a coverup of domestic abuse and now, he’s at war with “Javanka”.
Please do take a minute to appreciate the moment in that clip when John realizes that the crowd might be laughing at him rather than with him…
