Play of the Day: Rex Tillerson is 'Here'

President Donald Trump gave his State Department chief a lukewarm vote of confidence.

President Donald Trump and his family lit the National Christmas Tree this week, with First Lady Melania Trump doing the honors. The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon joked about the news, saying the president refused to see it lit until "everyone agreed his tree has the most lights in history."

The New York Times reported Thursday that the White House has a plan to get rid of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson before the end of the year. Fallon joked that Trump hasn't decided to fire Tillerson because he's Trump's "secret Santa," while Late Show's Stephen Colbert remembered that Tillerson may have called the president a "moron." When Trump was asked about Tillerson's status, he said "He's here. Rex is here.” Colbert joked about the quote, comparing the two to a couple about to get divorced.
