But “Trump is a Fucking Moron” Tillerson was there as well, and the White House says:
A White House spokesman told The Post on condition of anonymity that Tillerson’s readout of the Hamburg meeting was “fulsome” and delivered to US officials immediately afterward — and a readout was given to the press.
What is ‘fulsome’ in this context? Detailed (incorrect English), or (more correctly) excessively adulatory and effusive? Adulatory of Trump?
Why is a WH spokesman saying this? This isn’t a good thing to say, that Tillerson was over-the-top adulatory. If the WH wanted a good spin, they’d say that a ‘full and detailed’ summary was provided by Tillerson.
Is the story that Trump was kowtowing to Putin, and Tillerson was covering for him, but Tillerson subsequently got tired of Trump’s stupidity? So Tillerson isn’t a semi-good-guy but just another Putin toady who happens to be a little bit smarter (he was anti-sanctions as head of Exxon-Mobil)?
This whole thing confuses me a bit.
