That actually probably was a good 65% of it. Trump is very fixated on "out of Central Casting" appearances for all those associated with him.

The other 35% was some combination of 'not sycophantic enough' and 'actually criticized ME!!!1!' and 'I won't get the Nobel with this guy urging war all the time.'

Was the general crying manly tears? I bet he was crying manly tears.

Yes, I think this is the most likely development. There's precedent: Henry Kissinger was both SoS and NSA.

And Pompeo gives Trump the exact brand of toadying flattery* Trump likes. More of that will be just to Trump's taste.

*the kind with religious underpinnings: Trump being The Chosen One, etc.
