There were awkward exchanges at the Department of State today as Rex Tillerson asked his staff how preparations were coming along for his diplomatic tour of Asia.
“He’s so excited to finally meet some foreign dignitaries, but unless one happens to be on a budget cruise package it’s not going to happen.”
Tillerson had been agitating to get out into the world to get his hands dirty, so President Trump booked him on the Carnival Cruise line to get him off his back.
“It’s really put a spring in his step to think he’s going to get to do something substantial, which only makes it more painful.”
His staff have agreed to draw straws to determine who will confront him with the truth before they drive down to Florida – which he didn’t find strange, presumably because he is in severe denial.
“We had hoped when President Trump called and told him to enjoy the midnight buffets that the penny would drop, but no.”
