WASHINGTON — The Latest on the firing of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson (all times local):

12:20 a.m.

Two U.S. officials say the White House has fired one of Rex Tillerson's top aides after he contradicted the official account of the secretary of state's dismissal by President Donald Trump.

The officials said Steve Goldstein, the undersecretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs, was informed of the move shortly after he released a statement in his name saying that Tillerson was "unaware of the reason" for his termination. Goldstein had also told reporters that Tillerson learned of his firing Tuesday morning from Trump's tweet announcing he was nominating CIA chief Mike Pompeo to lead the State Department.

7. "Cleaning" the American Undersecretary of State too?

 

For telling the truth and saying the Secretary didn't know why he was fired?

How could he possibly know? He was in Africa when he was fired on Twitter. Rex knows no more than any Twiter user. If Twitter doesn't know why he was fired, neither does Rex.

There'll be nobody in the office to deal with the fake Ultimatum to fake Russia from the fake British Prime Minister to fake Russia about the fake Russian Nerve Gas that fake-poisoned the fake Russian and his fake daughter and the fake British Policeman all in the fake hospital and all that fake news.

2. Trump feels free to do what he wants.

So he’s cleaning house.

He tried it their way. Now he’s trying it his way.

4. Bullshit

Putting generals in charge was Trump's way.

He was supposed to be hiring just the best people.

With all this failure in the cabinet, how are we to trust his Supreme Court picks?

5. No one is perfect, not even Trump

If you aren't going to do what the President tells you to do you're gone, it would be the height of stupidity to keep someone in a position who isn't doing what you want them to do. I mean you might find it a good idea to hire someone who isn't doing what you want them to do, now mind you that doesn't mean they're not good at their jobs
