Don’t make eye contact with Tillerson. Again, you’d think it was the Onion, but it’s not.
Most of his interactions are with an insular circle of political aides who are new to the State Department. Many career diplomats say they still have not met him, and some have been instructed not to speak to him directly — or even make eye contact.
Private elevators, “reading time”, no visits with his employees in embassies, isolated from professionals… it’s mind blowing.
