Rex Tillerson's Joke About A Statue Actually Made People Feel Sad For Him

Secretary of StateRex Tillersonjoked that he sometimes just wants to curl up into a fetal position, and even his critics felt his pain.

He made the quip while walking past a statue of a person curled into themselves in a park in Switzerland on Thursday.

“Yeah, some days I feel like I need to do that. Curl up in a ball,” said Tillerson.

The former Exxon Mobil CEO didn’t directly refer to working for PresidentDonald Trump, who Tillerson reportedly called a “moron” over the summer, as being the cause of his need.

But Twitter users read between the lines, and many responded in pretty much the same way:
