Donald Trump chose a cowardly way of firing his secretary of state, Rex Tillerson. For a man who starred in a reality show with the trademark “You’re fired,” the commander-in-chief certainly has a lot of difficulty actually people letting people go. It seems, he may have tweeted Tillerson his pink slip.

Representative Ted Lieu (D-CA) tweeted that the president has been “rearranging deck chairs” on ship Titanic:

Ever since Tillerson apparently called the president “a moron” last summer, the two men have clashed. The secretary of state has said he will not accept being fired unless the president does it face-to-face.

Trump said that he almost had the administration he wanted. He and his appointee for the incoming secretary of state, former CIA Director Mike Pompeo, apparently have had “chemistry” at first sight.
