Rex Tillerson responds to 'castration' comment on CNN, 'I'm fully intact'

Posted October 16, 2017

"I think Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Mattis and Chief of Staff Kelly are those people that help separate our country from chaos", Corker told reporters at the time when asked about allegations of bad blood between Trump and Tillerson.

"I'm not playing. You want to make a game out of it, I'm not playing". And they feed on it.

I wish that the Trump administration officials, like Tillerson, who privately bash their Dear Leader, would man up and quit, and publicly disavow him.

"But I have complete freedom to express my views to the president. I don't work that way and I don't feel that way", he said. Tillerson reportedly called Trump a "moron".

Tillerson's comments on Sunday come amid soaring tensions between the United States and North Korea following a series of weapons tests by Pyongyang and a war of words between the two countries' leaders.

"These are the games of Washington", Tillerson said.

Also in the interview, Tillerson once again refused to deny recent reports that he called Trump a "moron", giving an identical answer to the one he offered when the story broke: "I'm not gonna deal with that kind of petty stuff".

"I am fully committed to his objectives", Tillerson continued. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker, a Republican, publicly rebuked the president for "castrating" his the secretary of state and undermining his diplomatic efforts.

As for Trump's tweets themselves, Tillerson said the President made the statements he did to try to "motivate action".

She said she was happy being in NY, where the United Nations is based, and said that from what she has observed Trump and Tillerson have a constructive relationship.

He doubled down on his support for the secretary of state Friday, saying that while he was concerned about Trump's "very irresponsible" Twitter habits, "it's the first part" - the "castration" of Tillerson - "that I am most exercised about".

"He is not going to accept the status quo", Tillerson said.
