Plus, it was obvious that said anal fissure dangled the secretary of state job in front of Romney to see him grovel, so he could later humiliate him before the entire country by selecting someone totally unqualified for the job.
President-elect Donald Trump is expected to nominate Exxon Mobil Corp. Chief Executive Rex Tillerson to be secretary of state, a transition official said Saturday, a selection that would reach outside the traditional foreign policy establishment to elevate a global business deal-maker. …
Among those considered for the post, Mr. Tillerson has perhaps the closest ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin, having negotiated a 2011 energy partnership deal with Russia that Mr. Putin said could eventually be worth as much as $500 billion. In 2012, the Kremlin bestowed the country’s Order of Friendship decoration on Mr. Tillerson.
So, in business jargon, “closest ties to Putin” means Tillerson groveled before the Russian leader, just as he groveled to the guy Putin put in charge of the United States.
