Yesterday, Donald Trump’s Secretary of State send his boss a major ‘f*ck you’ as he praised the very country that Trump spends all his time insulting.
During a photo-op with Mexican Secretary of Foreign Relations Luis Videgaray Caso, Rex Tillerson made the bold move to personally extend his appreciation to the Mexican government and praised the country for offering its help in regards to Hurricane Harvey.
Knowing full well that Trump had recently attacked the country on Twitter, Tillerson said:
It’s very generous for Mexico to offer to help in this very, very challenging time.”

And Tillerson wasn’t the only one to betray Trump. Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott not only praised the assistance, but accepted it. In a press conference, Abbott said:
I have and we are. And we have, I don’t have with me here, we have a list of aid and assistance that they have offered to provide that we are accepting. I don’t have the list, but I can tell you loosely, it involves things like vehicles and boats and supplies and food.”
And what was Donald Trump doing while Mexico busied itself with the task of saving American lives? He was sitting on his a** on Twitter, insulting Mexico and talking about his ridiculous wall:
He also tweeted that he is thinking of ending a trade deal with Mexico:
Considering how disgusting Trump’s attacks are on a country that is currently doing more to aid Texas after the hurricane than its own POTUS is, we can safely bet that Tillerson and Abbott are showering praise on Mexico to send a firm message to Trump.
