Tillerson takes sensible, private sector approach to filling gov’t positions, and it’s driving libs crazy

President Donald Trump appointed a businessman to be his Secretary of State and now we are seeing liberals lose their lunch over a sensible, business-like approach to the job, at least when it comes to filling — or not filling — those dozens of empty job openings in the State Department.

Many liberals either left the State Department (often known as “Foggy Bottom”) or were fired once Donald Trump came to office, but in many cases those positions still have not been filled. But Trump’s Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, is wondering why the heck he should bother filling them if those jobs are about to be eliminated anyway.

Trump has ordered all departments of the federal government to begin looking at restructuring to eliminate useless jobs and cut spending and Tillerson’s department is preparing to do just that. And because of this impending revamping, he doesn’t want to fill jobs that may end up being cut in the restructuring.

Trump has asked for a 38 percent cut in Foggy Bottom’s budget and that will mean some job cuts, certainly. And with the restructuring being planned, there is no point in hiring people now.

As agency spokesman R.C. Hammond put it, “I think we’re still in the process of mapping out the entire ocean floor so that we understand the full picture,” The Hill newspaper reported.

Hammond went on to say that the State Dept. is working just fine as it is and that Tillerson has been “helping the president develop his foreign policy” and is working on “touching gloves with our allies and our partners around the world.”

Naturally, the liberals came out in force to decry the fact that the State Department isn’t hiring new employees until its review is finished. They just don’t understand this sensible, business-like approach to the job.

On The Hill’s tweet of its story, for instance, liberals absurdly equated the lack of hiring to a degradation of our national diplomatic capabilities.
