Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson took an apparent jab at President Donald Trump Wednesday during a commencement speech to graduates at the Virginia Military Institute, in which he deplored the nation's "growing crisis in ethics and integrity" and leaders who "conceal the truth."
Tillerson, who was fired by a Trump tweet as the country's top diplomat in March and replaced with then-CIA Director Mike Pompeo, called on the graduates to maintain a "fierce defense of the truth."
"As I reflect upon the state of our American democracy, I observe a growing crisis in ethics and integrity," he said. "If our leaders seek to conceal the truth, or we as people become accepting of alternative realities that are no longer grounded in facts, then we as American citizens are on a pathway to relinquishing our freedom."
Tillerson added, "When we as people, a free people, go wobbly on the truth, even on what may seem the most trivial of matters, we go wobbly on America."
Wow. Tillerson seems to be taking a page out of the Democrat narrative. Why did Tillerson wait so long to say these things if this is how he really feels? This looks more like bitterness towards the outstanding job his replacement, Mike Pompeo, has done in the short time he's been in the position.
Here's what some people are saying.
What do you think? Is Tillerson a bitter ex-employee? Let us know in the comments.
