Secretary of State Rex Tillerson Falls Sick Visiting Kenya…

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson cancelled all engagements in Kenya today after falling ill during his tour of several African nations.  A spokesman of the State Department told Reuters that “he is not feeling well”.

“The secretary is not feeling well after a long couple days working on major issues back home such as North Korea and has canceled his events for the day,” spokesman Steve Goldstein said.

Inside Kenya there were some immediate notes of irony; highlighted by media reports of colorful remarks by U.S. President Trump toward less sanitary and developed nations.

According to the Daily Beast: “[Secretary] Tillerson is expected to resume his schedule on Sunday, with visits to Chad and Nigeria planned for Monday and Tuesday. Several events planned for Saturday had to go on without him, however, including one for PEPFAR, the U.S. program to fight HIV/AIDS in Africa. His visit to the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi was canceled.”

    Those long trips are rough. Add in our cold and flu season, late hours prepping for the trip, and it can take a toll. Wishing Rex the best and a speedy recovery!

      I believe that Rex is just sick and there are a number of excellent assumptions listed in the comments above. I just want him to get well and stand at the podum so we will know that he hasn’t fallen victim to something that is worse. Rex Tillerson is one of the best in President DJ Trump’s cabinet.

    I also pray he has a speedy recovery and heads back home soon. Just breathing the air in some of those places should qualify for one for hazardous duty pay.

    “Less sanitary” is the understatement of the century. Probably shaked hands with the locals.

    When a Pariotic American has to travel to ANY other country in the world and returns, his first impulse is to thank God for the safe trip and the “symbolic” kissing of the ground.

    My pastor and his family spent four years in Kenya. His wife and son became ill from dysentery. Thankfully, they both recovered.

    I hope this isn’t something too serious. Wishing T-Rex a speedy recovery.

    He definitely needs to recuperate and return home to begin the North Korean pre preparations for the historic President Trump meeting. I’m sure his attendance is needed. He has such impeccable judgment and his input will be very valuable.

    Tillerson isn’t a snowflake. For him to be sick, he has to be really sick… not necessarily seriously, deadly sick but not just a cold.

    He is involved in Scouting and if you stay involved as an adult you keep your hand in. He would carry on if it was reasonable. Heck I’ve camped with guys 10-15 years older than him in scouts.

    Not that I don’t believe that there is such a thing as shithole countries, it should be noted that the President says he didn’t say it and the only withess saying that he did say it was Dick Durbin. The same guy that lied about what some republican said about Obama (denied by Obama and GOP) called the American soldiers Nazis for Abu Gharib, said the affordable care act would lower health insurance premiums and that they would lower the national debt $3 trillion under Obama. He is a liar and if the President says he didn’t say it I would believe him over a pernicious Durbin and I know the president likes to spin his own yarns at times.

    Shithole countries.. with populations that hates America, Americans and the American way of life. Because it’s a “American whitey” thing to be law abiding, civilized and sanitary..

    Occasionally I run across it in America.. Just recently I was at a what was supposed to be a decent restaurant in DFW – my drink tasted like it had a spritz of toilet water.. (After working on offshore vessels you get to acquire a taste for various “potable” water flavors) I asked the immigrant for another.. a “clean” one. I consider such tamperings as an act of attempted murder. As expected, a mild case of food poisioning afterwards the next day. Toilet water is their favorite low tech terrorist weapon, they learned that in their shithole country.

    Lesson.. when you first walk in take a moment to look around at the waiter sections of the restaurant then ask to be seated in your selected one. If you happen to get an immigrant waiter, ask to be seated elsewhere.

    We are at war people.. a domestic cold war.. with infiltrators. Be politically incorrect.. You are worth it.. If the maitre’ d’ asks why, explain it to them – and out loud so others can hear..

      If you’re going to explain it loudly so the whole place can hear, you might as well just leave. You don’t know who’s friends with who in that place or what they’ll do to your food when they hear you complaining. Just avoiding one waiter won’t be enough.

        Many cities/counties publish their health inspection ratings and findings. Maybe not as often as folks would like, but they can be helpful.

        Having said that, I doubt Kenya or most third-world ($#!+hole) countries would do that, at least honestly…


      • Jedi9 says:

        Totally agree! Complaining before a meal is served is bad policy in my book! It’s cheaper to just leave the restaurant than to be subjected to such abuses! The previous poster is right, we are at war, and we can get complacent about anything, especially the meals and water we drink!

    Sick as in limit exposure to amount of people at unscheduled meetings?

    Trump could not visit DMZ in Korea because it was too foggy.

    I saw this news early this morning. I have been praying for Rex Tillerson all day. He is doing a wonderful job for our country. He is deep in enemy territory. There are many witch doctors there to cast spells on him as well as the possibility of someone using an exotic poison on him. Jesus tells us that Satan has no power against us because we belong to him. I have been praying for protection, love, light and strength to surround him.
    I believe Rex will be fine. When someone is being assailed by very dark forces, powers and principalities it is difficult to maintain confidence and strength. Rex is a strong man and this is not the first time he has had to stand against evil. Kenya is Obama’s territory and there are a lot of evil forces aligned against Rex now. The good news is that these forces will not and cannot prevail.
    Please pray for Rex Tillerson and stand with him in the body of Christ and give him peace and confidence to withstand all that the evil forces can bring against him. We stand together and not alone. We actually can help shield him and help keep him safe.

      Kenya is fighting an undeclared war against a violent Muslim takeover. It doesn’t get anywhere near the attention it should.

    That Secretary of State job is pretty brutal, I think. So much travel, constant jet lag, eating out all of the time. I might be wrong but I think most SoS’s are for 4 years only even if the President is doing two terms. It nearly kiilled Hillary. (thinking) haha


  34. Apart from the sanitary conditions in the African continent, hope there is no foul play here. SOS need to find what food was offered to him, who prepared it and when?As the trip is mainly to counter balance CHICOMs , anything is possible. Hope the Secret Service and other Security officials are also safe in the lousy part of the world.


  35. thomaspain1961 says:

    Maybe, just maybe, Tillerson feigned sickness to sneak out and meet the Kenyan official who documentation as to who obama actually is. Later, when obama is charged with treason, Trump can quench the commie lib outrage with full disclosure of who “obama” really is.


    • The Jimmy Jackz says:

      Given Qs recent accurate post about Aus & CF, this is a possibility.

      Note: I don’t think Obama is Kenyan but that birth certificate was fake. My guess is he lied to get placements and scholarships. Idk. Anything is possible.


  36. The Jimmy Jackz says:

    Hope he wasn’t poisoned as seems go be all the rage lately. But in a turd world country my money is on the usual. Then again given Qs recent posts maybe Tillerson was on an alternative mission in Kenya.

    The place(s) he went are enough to make anybody sick.
