Haley claims the former secretary of state and White House chief of staff told her to oppose President Trump to “save the country.” Now, Rex has responded.

“During my service to our country as the Secretary of State, at no time did I, nor to my direct knowledge did anyone else serving along with me, take any actions to undermine the President,” Tillerson told The Washington Post in a statement. “My conversations with the President in the privacy of the Oval Office were always candid, frank, and my recommendations straightforward. Once the President made a decision, we at the State Department undertook our best efforts to implement that decision.”

[…]

Tillerson, who served as secretary of State during Trump’s first year in the White House, added that Haley was “rarely a participant” in the many meetings he had with the president and that she wouldn’t be in a position to know what he said.

In an interview last December, Rex went after Trump pretty hard.

Tillerson said “He acts on his instincts and some respects that looks like impulsiveness. But it’s not intent to act on impulse. I think he’s trying to act on his instincts.

He added, “It was challenging for me coming from the disciplined, highly process-oriented ExxonMobil Corporation to go to work for a man who is pretty undisciplined, doesn’t — doesn’t like to read, doesn’t read briefing reports, doesn’t — doesn’t like to get into the details of a lot of things but rather just kind of says, look, this is what I believe and you can try to convince me otherwise, but most of the time you’re not going to do that.

Rex continued, “When the president would say, ‘Here’s what I want to do, and here’s how I want to do it,’ and I’d have to say to him, ‘Well, Mr. President, I understand what you want to do but you can’t do it that way. It violates the law, it violates the treaty, you know.’

He went on, “I didn’t know how to conduct my affairs with him any other way than in a very straightforward fashion. And I think he grew tired of me being the guy every day that told him, ‘You can’t do that, and let’s talk about what we can do.’

Rex also said Trump won in 2016 because voters were “disengaged” on important issues.

Rex noted, “I will be honest with you, it troubles me that the American people seem to want to know so little about issues that they are satisfied with a 128 characters. I don’t want that to come across as a criticism of him. It’s really a concern that I have about us as Americans and us as a society and us as citizens.

As you’d expect, Trump fired back at “lazy” and “dumb as a rock” Tillerson…

Here’s a bit of news you 100% did not expect to read on a Sunday morning, especially considering the state of American politics these days. But it happened. It actually happened. A New Jersey Democrat is becoming a Republican. After decades of living on planet earth, Rep. Jeff Van Drew finally decided it was time to grow up and become an adult. Good for him and better for America! How must Nancy Pelosi feel, at this moment? She just lost yet another vote when it comes to impeaching President Trump. Do you feel bad for her? Don’t answer that. We already know the answer. Check this out, via Daily Wire: New Jersey Democratic Congressman Jeff Van Drew, who has strongly opposed the Democrats’ impeachment efforts, is leaving the Democratic Party and becoming a member of the Republican Party after meeting with President Donald Trump. […] Van Drew reportedly met “at length” with Trump on Friday and his decision to switch parties is supposed to be officially announced in the near future, a top GOP source told Politico. https://twitter.com/MZanona/status/1205946597974118400?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1205949015734575104&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fjeremy-corbyn-goes-full-stacey-abrams-declares-victory-after-blowout-loss https://twitter.com/seanmdav/status/1205949015734575104?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1205949015734575104&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fjeremy-corbyn-goes-full-stacey-abrams-declares-victory-after-blowout-loss Reactions: The stunning move comes ahead of a historic vote on impeachment, to which Van Drew is strongly opposed.

Watch: Democrat Rep. Admits Impeachment Vote Delayed to Maximize TV Exposure

How much attention do they need, at this point?

If the mainstream media was honest with the American people, this would be a story they’d report above all else, at the moment. Not only do Democrats want President Trump out of office because they hate him – not because he broke any laws – but they want as much TV time as possible to let the politically uninformed know they are attempting to kick POTUS out, therefore making it seem as if they are doing a good job. Here’s what’s up, via The Blaze: House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) enraged Republicans on the committee by suddenly delaying a vote on impeachment articles that was supposed to occur Thursday night, and one Democrat on the committee has admitted the move was for attention. Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla.) told CNN on Friday that instead of having the vote late Thursday night when no one was paying attention, the committee wanted to maximize the number of potential viewers by pushing it until Friday morning. The Thursday night hearing lasted nearly until midnight. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RX2gUexYgEE&feature=emb_logo California Democrat Nancy Pelosi knows she’s got jack. All Democrats know they have nothing against President Trump. Unfortunately, that won’t stop them from acting like children and attempting to impeach. The Speaker’s response to liberal CNN host Jake Tapper’s questions about the process shows she’s vapid on the issue. And considering the issue at hand, that’s kind of a big deal. The fact that Dems have taken the impeachment process as far as they have without any proof of presidential wrongdoing whatsoever speaks volumes about character. But they don’t care. WATCH: You can’t make this up. Nancy Pelosi scolds CNN’s @JakeTapper for asking about impeachment on the day she asks for articles of impeachment to be drafted against @realDonaldTrump. #StopTheMadness https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1202784451559862272?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1202784451559862272&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fpelosi-scolds-cnn-for-asking-her-about-impeachment-on-day-she-declared-impeachment If there is one person…
