Tillerson cuts short South Korean visit, citing 'fatigue'

Can you imagine what the usual suspects would be saying if the name in the headline was Hillary instead of Tillerson.

Report: Tillerson cuts short South Korean visit, citing 'fatigue'


Secretary of State Rex Tillerson cut short his recent visit with South Korean officials due to "fatigue," the Korea Herald reported on Friday.

According to the newspaper, the top U.S. diplomat did not have lunch or dinner with South Korean Foreign Minister Yun Byung-se and acting President and Prime Minister Hwang Kyo-ahn during his visit.

The Korea Herald noted that Tillerson spent several hours meeting with Japanese officials, which included dinner meetings.

And some interesting (but troubling) associated news:

Quote:
South Korean media reported on Friday that U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson skipped out on gathering with his Korean counterparts due to “fatigue.” But the only American news outlet aboard Tillerson’s first diplomatic mission did not report on the development, further ramping up scrutiny of the State Department’s decision to leave the U.S. media virtually in the dark.

Erin McPike, a journalist from the conservative-leaning website Independent Journal Review, was the only reporter invited on Tillerson’s trip to Asia — an exceedingly unusual development. According to IJR founder Alex Skatell, McPike received the highly coveted spot because of her “tenacious, detailed brand of reporting.” McPike, however, is not functioning as a pool reporter during the trip and will not provide daily insights into Tillerson’s trip. Instead, she’s reportedly accompanying the secretary of state for an upcoming profile of Tillerson.

“There is an elevated concern in the Japanese media about that level of control” that Trump is trying to exert on the U.S. news media, Tamaki Tsukada, spokesman for the Japanese Embassy in Washington, told The Washington Post this week.

IJR did find it necessary to cover former President Barack Obama’s trip to Hawaii this week, however, publishing a story titled “Ex-President Obama Made ‘Surprise Visit’ to Hawaii, Just Days Before Judge Issued Travel Ban Ruling.” The publication suggested Obama’s visit to Hawaii was related to a judge’s decision to halt Trump’s executive order barring individuals from six Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. The story also noted that the judge was Obama’s classmate at Harvard University and that the former president ate a restaurant near the judge’s federal courthouse.

Maybe Tillerson wanted some one-on-one time with Ms. McPike?



She formerly worked for CNN.......

Fatigue might be the PC word today but back in the day it was called Jet Lag. Take a person who works swing shift, two weeks they first shift and then they work two weeks second shift and then for two weeks they work third shift starting all over again. This upsets our internal clock which causes fatigue.
