The revolving door of the Trump Administration swung another powerful figure out the exit today when Secretary of State Rex Tillerson found out via Twitter that he was out of a job.
Former Press Secretary Sean Spicer ('memba him?!), himself an alum of the revolving door, bid Tillerson adieu with an extremely apt Freudian slip.
"Secretary Tillerson is a true patriot that has severed our nation well."
"Severed our nation well."
"Severed," as in, "divide by cutting or slicing, especially suddenly and forcibly."
Tillerson has been accused of drastically downsizing the State Department, and *severing* ties with America's allies all over the world.
The "mistake" not be a mistake after all.
Regardless of whether the verb "severed" more accurately reflects the feelings of Trump's former chief propagandist, the internet had fun pointing out the mix-up.
Oh, Spicey. You might just want to go back into the bushes after this one.
