YIKES: The Secretary of State Just Flat-Out said Trump Doesn’t Speak for America

This is pretty shocking.

From Business Insider:

In an interview on Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace pointed out that a United Nations committee criticized Trump’s apparent defense of some people at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia earlier this month.

Though Tillerson denied that Trump’s rhetoric made it difficult to defend American diplomacy abroad, he refused to deny that he was attempting to distance himself and the state department from Trump’s comments.

“I don’t believe anyone doubts the American people’s values, or the commitment of the American government, or the government’s agencies to advancing those values and defending those values,” Tillerson said.

“And the president’s values?” Wallace asked.

“The president speaks for himself, Chris,” Tillerson replied.

How big a deal is this? Even Fox News personalities and longtime Republican operatives are openly slack-jawed right now:

The video itself is even more stark:

With senior administration officials like Gary Cohn openly distancing themselves from the President’s defense of white supremacists, the Trump administration appears to be in more disarray than ever:
