Tillerson the Recluse

If you watch Madame Secretary you will find this article very strange and disturbing.  Apparently Secretary Tillerson thinks he is a Spy master or something who can hide America's policies, positions, actions, negotiations, etc.  It will be interesting to see how this progresses.  Thoughts?

Something that the Trump's tweetstorm has obscured is that Trump is without a policy. He is focused on reducing the executive branch, not asking it to do productive work. While this is true throughout the administration, it is true more specifically with the State Department. Trump has not given his secretary of state a policy, therefore the secretary has nothing to do, and the press has nothing to cover.

I never understood the logic of hiring a negotiator as president. A negotiator has to have a principal, someone to set the policy goals that will subject to the negotiation. Trump who doesn't have any specific policies, has nothing to negotiate which is why his administration is simply drifting.

I am pretty sure Tillerson is not prone to drifting... I just wish they would tell us what he is doing.

Big uproar today because Tillerson chose to take only ONE reporter along on his plane to Asia. Major media outraged for lack of free Mimosas.
