So now we have a multi-billionaire Rex Tillerson, former CEO of ExxonMobil, sworn in as Secretary of State.
The Trumpencritter has already shown his love and devotion for Russia and Putin. One might call it a relationship that’s almost disgustingly unsavory. Perverted. Insane. Unless of course one believes that whole thing about Trump actually owing hundreds of millions of dollars to the Russian oligarchs, which could be one reason that he has refused to release his tax returns. Perverted. Maybe not quite that insane, although unbelievably corrupt and immoral.
So as of this morning the United States still had sanctions in place which put a hold on an ExxonMobil deal with Russia for drilling rights. A deal worth in excess of $50B.
That’s not a typo. Half a trillion dollars. $500,000,000,000.
Is there an over/under in Las Vegas on when the corrupt slimeball in the White House and his evil henchman Tillerson lift those sanctions?
Gee, that will make Tillerson a multi-multi-multi-multi-billionaire!
Which made me start to wonder what in hell you do with that sort of money. I mean, even with a whole stable of Citation Xs and a 500-foot yacht on each coast and another in Europe and another in Australia (whoops, better move that one quick after today!), even with all of that, it’s still tough to be able to spend two or three billion dollars.
What do you do with, say, five billion dollars? Or ten? Or twenty?
Buy your own island? Maybe Greenland. It will be absolutely subtropical after these ignorant assholes fry the planet.
Might be better to buy your own new planet.
That’s it! I forgot! Ronald Reagan talked about this back in his day. It’s all so clear!
Tillerson’s going to take those multi-multi-multi-billions and fund the National Endowment for the Arts, Planned Parenthood, Social Security, Medicare, and all of the other government programs that Trump, Ryan, and McConnell (heretofore to be known as “The Triumvirate of Evil”) are eliminating in the name of freedom, apple pie, and all of the lobbyists who keep shoving those briefcases full of currency at them.
He’s going to single-handedly keep the US economy going – and he’s going to make the Russians pay for it!
