So….You’d Like to Be Caligula’s Secretary of State

I was raised by a trial lawyer in part. I watched this part of the hearing where lawyer Bob Menendez questioned the successor to Rex Tillerson as something the United States used to call their Secretary of State.

It was embarrassing for Mike Pompeo. There was nothing he could do. There’s nothing Sec Def Bulldog Mattis can do. There’s nothing General John Kelly can do unless you decide to quit and discontinue lying on behalf of Donald Trump.

It’s not like these were Perry Mason questions. Any first week first semester law school student would have asked them.

It’s all so embarrassing.

Welcome to the Banana Republic. But I guess we should be grateful in that Scott Pruitt wasn’t elevated to Attorney General.
