“HUGE WASTE OF MONEY.” TILLERSON SAID TO BE FURIOUS AFTER EXXONMOBIL IS FORCED TO CHANGE LOGO
Houston, TX (eTruePolitics) – Is Rex Tillerson the latest government employee headed out the door? After learning that ExxonMobil executives, in response to current president Trump’s signing of Congress’s new Russian sanctions bill, have ordered that the oil giant’s expensive new logo be pulled from advertising campaigns across all platforms, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson reportedly erupted in a profanity laced phone conversation with the current president.
Tillerson was said to have characterized the change as a huge financial mistake. “This is going to affect my fucking retirement portfolio,” Tillerson reportedly yelled at Trump. For weeks, Tillerson had been vigorously defending the widely criticized new logo.
“It is simply a coincidence that the colors of our new ExxonMobil logo are the same as the Russian flag,” Tillerson told Fox News last week before Trump decided to sign the congressional sanctions bill. “The United States does not own the colors red, white and blue. ‘Putin Russia first’? No one gives a crap about the slogan. No one reads.”
