Late in life, Tillerson discovers the value of truth

Filed in National by on May 18, 2018

After years of promoting climate change denialism, Rex Tillerson gave a commencement address:

“A responsibility of every American citizen to each other is to preserve and protect our freedom by recognizing what truth is and is not, what a fact is and is not, and begin by holding ourselves accountable to truthfulness and demand our pursuit of America’s future be fact-based — not based on wishful thinking, not hoped-for outcomes made in shallow promises, but with a clear-eyed view of the facts as they are, and guided by the truth that will set us free to seek solutions to our most daunting challenges. When we as people, a free people, go wobbly on the truth, even on what may see the most trivial of matters, we go wobbly on America.”

That’s nice.

    As ever when out of office they start to tell the truth, the same truth everybody knows at some level.

    Too little, too late to redeem you, Rex.
