Pelosi came out so fast against Tillerson’s ‘humiliating dismissal,’ she forgot to read her own press release. Oops

Nancy Pelosi’s flip-flop on Rex Tillerson may be adding fuel to speculation that the 77-year-old Democrat finally needs to retire.

The House Minority Leader once accused ousted Secretary of State Tillerson of being “friendly” with Russia but after his firing by President Donald Trump on Tuesday, Pelosi is singing a different tune.

“Secretary Tillerson’s firing sets a profoundly disturbing precedent in which standing up for our allies against Russian aggression is grounds for a humiliating dismissal,” the California Democrat said Tuesday.

 

But back when Tillerson was first nominated  in 2016, Pelosi called him “an oil executive friendly to Vladimir Putin,” and declared that his nomination “sends a disturbing signal about President-elect Trump’s priorities.”

The secretary of state “should champion American values, American security and American interests,”Pelosi stated at the time. “Fawning over Putin is poor preparation for being the top diplomat of the United States of America.”

Tillerson’s job security had been under speculation for months, with the oil magnate openly disagreeing with Trump on several occasions, most recently on North Korea. Fox News host Laura Ingraham questioned why it took the president so long to show Tillerson the doors, especially since the diplomat once reportedly called Trump a “moron.”

“If you call your boss a moron, you probably should not be in that position,” Ingraham said on Tuesday’s “The Angle.”

Tillerson’s recent criticism of Russia may have been more at the forefront of Pelosi’s memory, comfortably lining up with Democrats’ rhetoric against Trump and his alleged collusion with the Kremlin. The diplomat was fired hours after he said the poisoning of an ex-Russian spy in Britain had “clearly” been ordered by Russia.

Of course, this set off the narrative that Pelosi echoed.

Apparently, Pelosi’s current stand on Tillerson also provided an opportunity for fundraising.

Twitter users weighed in on the House Minority Leader’s amnesia.
