The former Exxon CEO – now President Trump’s secretary of state – went by Wayne Tracker during climate change talks.
Stephen Colbert cannot believe that Rex Tillerson’s real name sounds more appropriate for a cowboy than his rugged alias – Wayne Tracker – which he used as CEO of Exxon Mobil to allegedly discuss climate change.
The host of CBS’s ‘Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ dedicated part of his monologue Tuesday night to President Donald Trump’s mysterious secretary of state.‘Wayne Tracker – which actually sounds less like a made-up cowboy than Rex Tillerson.I don’t think he should be allowed two cool-sounding manly names’ Colbert said.‘If you are born Rex Tillerson your alias should be something not manly — like Mel Dampler or Humbert Knucklebutt’.
Tillerson allegedly used the Wayne Tracker alias when he discussed climate change and other ‘important matters’ involving his old oil company – according to New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
Colbert found it strange that Tillerson went through such great lengths to hide his communications.
‘In the Trump administration you can be a sexist or white supremacist but you want to keep your science talk on the D.L.’ Colbert surmised.
