Humblepie, that just made my day!

Dear leader can't afford to offend any potential bribers, I mean campaign contributors. No hot mics on this one but I'm sure it would sound like this: "Just tell Tillerson not to worry. Now that I've won the election I've got more leeway to say one thing and do another."
