On a regular basis, Donald Trump picks a new cabinet member for the Democrats to be enraged about.
The most long-awaited spot for many, was wondering who will serve as Secretary of State under President Trump.
On Tuesday morning, that wait came to an end when it was reported that Chairman and CEO of ExxonMobil Corporation was tapped to take the spot.
Cue the liberal outrage:
But, thanks to WikiLeaks it could be harder, at least for Clinton and their supporters, to go after Trump for his pick. Because as it turns out, Tillerson was once a top-pick for the Clinton’s too.
Politico’s Kenneth Vogel uncovered the leaked email that stated Tillerson was being considered for a spot in the Clinton Global Initiative:

As Twitchy noted, this could put a wrench in the media’s narrative that pretty much goes like this:

But, Tillerson is such a great guy, not only according to the Clinton’s but also to Trump:
Folks had plenty to say about Tillerson:

ExxonMobil’s’ initiative had been publicly supported by former President Bill Clinton as Twitchy reported:
“As a global technology company, ExxonMobil can make a lasting contribution by helping to identify and deploy new technologies to improve and strengthen the economic livelihoods of women,” said Rex W. Tillerson, chairman and chief executive officer. “This focus area is consistent with our own belief and experience that technology and innovation are critical to addressing many of the world’s major challenges.”
ExxonMobil’s new initiative was announced by former President Bill Clinton at the Clinton Global Initiative’s annual meeting in New York. ExxonMobil is co-sponsoring the first-ever CGI special programming focused on investing in girls and women. Tillerson participated as a panelist during a plenary session “Investing in Girls and Women.”
