Rex Tillerson's Comment is the Very Defination of Speaking Truth to Power

Rex Tillerson saying to high ranking officials in the Trump Administration, in a voice loud enough for more than just several people to hear, that Donald Trump is a "Fucking Moron", is the very definition of the age old adage of "speaking truth to power."

The phrase is true and the most powerful person in the world is the President of the United States.

Trump being a "Fucking Moron" is the most truthful and pertinent phrase anyone can say. And the fact Rex said it and didn't care who heard it, is remarkable. The fact that Trump heard about it through a public airing in the press he so despises and that it was said by his important appointee, makes it all the more formidable.

2. Better if he called him a "huge fucking moron" - more truthful.
