Tillerson talks truth. Better late than never, I guess.

Tillerson talks truth. Better late than never, I guess.

He gave a commencement address this week and said this:

"A responsibility of every American citizen to each other is to preserve and protect our freedom by recognizing what truth is and is not, what a fact is and is not, and begin by holding ourselves accountable to truthfulness and demand our pursuit of America's future be fact-based -- not based on wishful thinking, not hoped-for outcomes made in shallow promises, but with a clear-eyed view of the facts as they are, and guided by the truth that will set us free to seek solutions to our most daunting challenges. When we as people, a free people, go wobbly on the truth, even on what may see the most trivial of matters, we go wobbly on America."

That's nice.

It's better than continuing to kiss the ring of the criminal in the White House, I guess. But at some point these people are going to have to step up and tell it like it is publicly. He knows the president is a fucking moron. He should just say it. That would be real truth.
