Ronan Farrow on Rex Tillerson: He Told Me He Didn’t Know What He Was Doing As Secretary of State

Ronan Farrow spoke to Seth Meyers last night on Late Night, and he offered some interesting insight into what he learned about Rex Tillerson while writing his foreign policy book: War On Peace.

After Meyers finished his mock White House press briefing, he spoke to Farrow about the former secretary of state’s very frank comments in the book.

“Tillerson, if he had any logic, knew that he was going to be fired on some level,” Farrow said. “Maybe that’s why he’s so frank in this book. He basically says ‘I didn’t know what I was doing, I wasn’t experienced enough for it.'”

Farrow continued to say that Tillerson blames the White House for his unceremonious dismissal earlier this year, but Farrow wasn’t “surprised” since “it is apparent to anyone looking at the State Department…that it’s become something of a dumpster fire.” Farrow called it a sad state of affairs, considering how often the people working there have to do a lot of unglamorous, unappreciated work to advance American international interests.
