'He was dumb as a rock': Trump responds to Rex Tillerson calling him 'undisciplined'

Rex Tillerson was 'dumb as a rock'President Donald Trump assailed his former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson as "dumb as a rock" after Tillerson said in an interview Thursday that some of the president's ideas violated the law.

The president's harsh response included calling Tillerson "lazy as hell" and saying that Tillerson didn't "have the mental capacity needed" to do his job properly. That all has changed, Trump said, with Mike Pompeo, who took over the role after Tillerson's ouster.

"He was dumb as a rock and I couldn’t get rid of him fast enough," Trump said of his former top diplomat in a tweet Friday. "He was lazy as hell. Now it is a whole new ballgame, great spirit at State!"

Trump's comments came in response to an interview Tillerson gave with CBS News. He said his time working for Trump was "challenging," calling his former boss "undisciplined" and saying that he'd have to tell the president that actions he wanted to take "violates the law."
