Vladimir Putin has fired Rex Tillerson as US Secretary of State after Tillerson made allegations about Russia being to blame for chemical attacks in the UK.
However, the Russian leader was categorical that Tillerson’s allegations were nothing to do with his dismissal.
“Rex simply wasn’t a good fit for us,” explained the Russian President.
“I’m just not sure he acted in the best interests of Russia, sorry, I mean the US!”
Putin did not fire Tillerson in person, as he decided to leave it to one of his middle managers named Donald Trump.
