His twitter account is part of his image.  I'm confounded how some of you think he has to change or needs to change.  Trump is Trump.  He's not going to change.

How can you watch that press conference and not come away embarrassed and ashamed for our country?

It was worse than pathetic.

It's not about right and wrong with the Trumpkins, it's about us vs. them. In their world, there is no objective reality, only what their orange daddy says.

You're right. It doesn't matter what damage he does with it. It pisses off liberals. Why would he stop? That's all most of his followers give a shit about anyway.

I understand and agree with you.  But I'm sure you know that I've been pretty disappointment with my president for quite some time.  You also know that I didn't vote for either candidate.  My disappointment will most likely continue.

I had actually made peace in my own mind with Trump. Then that press conference happened. Pathetic is a perfect word.

part of the calling of this position is to maintain a presidential image.  I think most of America would give him a chance, if he started there.  I know I would.

Meh, considering the allegations of the dossier and the way CNN covered it non stop I am O.K. with his press conference.

How, why?

Take away his attacking the press and any/all of the Russia stuff, and his press conference was still unprecedented in how embarrassing and pathetic it was.  He is so damn condescending to us:

trust me, you'll be impressed....

you'll be proud of my plan...

best job maker the world has ever seen...

The entire 20 minute parade where his legal team lectured us on how big and important and successful the Trump company is and how it would be impossible to divest, so rest assured and trust us when we say he doesn't care about business right now.  

What a charade.

Well that is how he has always been.  A bragadocious blow hard who speaks at a 3rd grade level.  Public school 3rd grade at that.  He acknowledged Russia was behind the hacks, that was good.  His attack on the press in this incidence was warranted.  More than warranted and it was not on all press, right before he attacked Buzz Feed and CNN he praised the people who did a good job covering the dossier

Maybe I am still high from the Tillerson confirmation.  He KILLED IT!  Tillerson 2020!

Right, even many posters here who were completely opposed to and embarrassed by Trump during the primaries have gladly hopped on his bandwagon because, "my team won!"

Seriously though, Tillerson killed it.  Very impressive.  Both sides of the isle seemed impressed by him.  He is a remarkably quick thinker, very well spoken and remarkably informed.  I was expecting to be be somewhat underwhelmed by him but hoping he would show some positives.  Blew away my expectations.

So your expectations in the new world order are, simply, being competent and articulate?

I'd reconsider your expectations somewhat.  And yes, I did listen to (some of) Tillerson's confirmation hearing.

What were your thoughts? I was completely unsure what to think of Tillerson prior to this.  Not ready to denounce him, not ready to laud him.  After listening to about 3 and half hours of his confirmation today I am feeling very optimistic.  Very nimble mind, fairly moderate.  Calculated, measured responses.  I really think somebody like him can wield great influence over the POTUS.

Happy, you don't have a single valid point.  Just blah blah blah.  

This is one of the most ironic and humorous posts I've ever seen on here.

Some of his positions surprised me a bit; otherwise, he sounded very measured, serious, and deliberate.  Not surprising given a person of his pedigree, resume, and stature. 

I've said all along, as much as the prospect of Tillerson frightens me, if he takes his appointment seriously and completely severs ties to his previous companies and their interests, he could be quite good.

After listening to him being questioned at some length about that real concern it was made evident he was very honored to be in this position and has completely severed ties to any corporate interests.  In a round about way he even criticized Trump for not doing similar.  He made that a major point several times.

Right now Tillerson seems like a home run hire to me.  Better than Romney would have been by a good deal.
