If you’ve been paying attention to outgoing Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) and President Donald Trump’s heated back and forth, you would know that Corker threw Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s name into the discussion.
In an interview with the Washington Post, Corker went so far as to say that Trump had “castrated” his secretary of state.
“You cannot publicly castrate your own secretary of state without giving yourself that binary choice,” Corker said Friday.
Rex Tillerson made appearance on CNN Sunday, and anchor Jake Tapper cut right to the chase, asking Tillerson to respond to the “castration claim.”
Tillerson gave a minute-long response explaining that his and President Trump’s end goals are in alignment, while also describing Trump’s communication methods as “unconventional.”
At the very end of the clip, Tapper asked again if Tillerson was concerned about being “gelded” in front of the whole world.
“I checked, I’m fully intact,” Tillerson replied.
