Trump reportedly fired Rex Tillerson on Twitter. Ouch.

As the nation reels from the firing of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, we've gotten a horrifying little bit of insight into how the firing went down. It appears that Tillerson found out he was out of a job when Trump tweeted out the news. 
Trump's tweet hit the web at 8:44 a.m., just as the first news reports about the firing were published.

Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, will become our new Secretary of State. He will do a fantastic job! Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service! Gina Haspel will become the new Director of the CIA, and the first woman so chosen. Congratulations to all!
