conducting the state department's activities consistent with the direction he wants to take the country. >> what's the line between service to the president and service to the country, sir? for you? >> well, i will never compromise my own values, chuck, and so, that's my only line. is in my values are those of the country. >> secretary of state rex tillerson reacting to the firing of fbi director james comey. >> yeah, it's only part of an exclusive interview coming up on meet the press this morning. and joining us now to talk about it, moderator, chuck todd, and we have new news on poll numbers, a lot of people reacting to the comey firing. what are you finding out with the poll numbers? >> i think the most interesting thing, those that care about the issue, it's not been good for the president. he can take heart into one thing about it though is that it seems as if you have an engaged group on the left and the right that are expressing their opinion, but there's a good third of the country that doesn't have an opinion about this decision. we found and we saw this on
with the health care vote overall in conversation than there was with this. and so, there are those trvrp supporters that say hey, this is a beltway story. and in some cases may be right, but it, you know, has an impact on the rest of the country and the fact is the beltway's a mess right now. and it's what does that mean? it means the president's not going to see his legislative agenda go anywhere. he has republicans on capitol hill, skeptical of what he's done. lindsey graham on the show, and republican from south carolina and very few words. like the president, he can't appoint a politician as fbi director. lindsey graham nixed the idea. his own colleague saying this is not the time whose been in elective office. so it's a precarious situation that the president is in. it again, those that care about it, more people say that they think he did it because of russia than because of the clinton e-mail scandal. that also is something that is growing out there. but there is one -- the only -- you could take heart in that his people are still with him. >>
long, the audition for his job has been going on over at the white house, and the president says that he plans to make an announcement sooner than later and really when you talk about the possible picks, he could go two ways -- >> right. >> right. >> look, he could go the political way, but yeah, even lindsey graham saying don't do it. good things about john cornen, don't do it, i think that's a signal that he's sending the president on that. look, i think you're going to see more graham's calling for an fbi -- somebody that has experience in the fbi. chuck schumer on show the is linking it, you know, he is -- he would like -- he is says democrats aren't going to consider engaging on the fik director without a special council being appointed. so look, there's a lot of politics that are surrounding this at this point. look, i think the person that stands out to me that could get the broadest bipartisan support is fran townsend. familiar face on television to some. clinton appointee, bush
elected officer. that would be the first woman woman ever head the fbi. >> like a safe thing to do. >> it's one of those that would be the smart, safe pick. which means he won't do it. >> oh. >> that the point. right. >> we'll see. >> can't assume that. >> a shame you have nothing to talk about. >> i know. but i am one important thing i want to say because this is my grandmother's home station. >> oh. >> i'm going to use the point of prifling. >> grew up here? >> she just lives around here now. >> good. >> maep here mother's day, grandma. i know she's getting ready to watch "meet the press." >> a picture. >> happy mother's day to all the moms. thanks so much. coming up in about ten minutes, meet the press starts at 10:30 right here after news 4 today. we'll s you in a second afteree
