Trump’s Secretary Of State Pick Rex Tillerson Already Being Painted As A Russian Agent
There’s already a media narrative painting Donald Trump’s Secretary of State pick Rex Tillerson as some type of Russian agent. The Washington Times did a whole piece discussing how the media has been spinning this. It is really quite absurd how they continue to promote these anti-Russian conspiracy theories.
Tillerson is the CEO and Chairman of Exxon Mobil and has vast amounts of international experience. He previously received the Russian Order of Friendship award from Vladimir Putin. This means he’s automatically some type of Russian intelligence plant according to these media hacks.
If the media is painting Tillerson this way, than he was a decent choice. If anything he is far better than the neocons Mitt Romney or John Bolton. Besides, we want somebody who is going to help establish good terms with Russia. It does none of us any good if the West has a poor relationship with them.
The White House has been pushing this same narrative. Here’s the talking Obama stooge Josh Earnest discussing the subject.
