JIMMY FALLON: This morning, Trump announced that he's nominating Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson to be his secretary of state even though Rex supposedly has a friendly relationship with Vladimir Putin. Today Rex said, 'Putin and I aren't friends,' while Putin said, 'That is so something Rex would say. That's like classic Rex.'
But Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway is defending Rex Tillerson saying, quote, 'It's not like Vladimir Putin and Rex Tillerson are pounding down vodka at the local bar.' Maybe not but they still seem pretty close. I mean, did you see the Christmas card they just sent out?
