From Politico.com

President Donald Trump on Sunday seemed to undercut his own secretary of state and and escalate the ongoing nuclear crisis with North Korea, tweeting that Rex Tillerson's efforts to negotiate with Kim Jong Un's regime were essentially useless.

"I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man...," Trump tweeted, adding, "...Save your energy Rex, we'll do what has to be done!"

The president's remarks seemed to defy a cardinal rule of international diplomacy maintaining a unified front amid ongoing diplomatic efforts and came even before Tillerson returned from a trip to China.


Who the hell is "we'll", as in "we'll do what has to be done." I have no idea what prompted this, but possibly it's an attempt to focus attention away from his insulting attacks on Puerto Rico - which were launched to focus attention away from Price's firing - which....

Will Tillerson quit? More importantly, will Congress realize that Trump is a very sick puppy - and getting nuttier as tensions mount - and finally get serious about impeachment?

Michael, who knows in a world gone mad. It may depend on how successful they are in their new attempt to plunder the poor and the middle class. If they fail to pass what is sarcastically called "tax reform" the GOP may try to salvage their existence as a political party and toss him to the sharks.

And alternatively, if they pass it they may have no further use for him and prefer the known quantity of Mike Pence. Who knows?

I'm swerving from the president's usage of grammar for now and focusing on his ability to put both of his feet in his mouth every time he opens it. For the most recent examples look no further than yesterday's debacle in Puerto Rico:

"I hate to tell you, Puerto Rico, but you've thrown our budget a little out of whack, because we've spent a lot of money on Puerto Rico,"

"Every death is a horror, but if you look at a real catastrophe like Katrina, and you look at the tremendous — hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people that died, and you look at what happened here with really a storm that was just totally overpowering ... and what is your death count?"

“16 certified, sir”

"Sixteen people versus in the thousands. You can be very proud."


Of course, as I speak there may be more feet going into his mouth via twitter. Most certainly his mouth will be full of feet in Las Vegas later today.
