The New York Post took a jab at the ousting of Secretary of State Rex TillersonRex Wayne TillersonPompeo planning to meet with Pat Roberts amid 2020 Senate speculation Trump concealed details of meetings with Putin from senior officials: report Forget the border wall, a coup in Guatemala is the real emergency MORE by riffing on an old headline that featured President TrumpDonald John TrumpSunday shows preview: Shutdown negotiations continue after White House immigration proposal Rove warns Senate GOP: Don't put only focus on base Ann Coulter blasts Trump shutdown compromise: ‘We voted for Trump and got Jeb!’ MORE.

“Worst Rex He Ever Had,” Wednesday's front page reads. The headline is a reference to a 1990 front page that quoted Marla Maples saying Trump, her soon-to-be husband, was the “Best Sex I’ve Ever Had.”

The two were married in 1993 and divorced in 1999.

Wednesday’s front page quickly went viral on social media.

Speculation that Tillerson would leave the administration has been mounting for months. Trump and Tillerson have publicly differed in their statements about issues like North Korea and the recent poisoning of an ex-Russian spy in the United Kingdom.

Shortly after the announcement, Trump’s hometown paper updated its “Survivor”-themed cover to indicate Tillerson was the latest to go. The cover depicts departed White House aides with red X’s over their faces.

Tillerson said his term as the nation's top diplomat will end at midnight on March 31. Until then, Tillerson is delegating his responsibilities to Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan.
