Mattis, who usually just stays silent, has finally taken a shot back at Trump:

Quote
ôIĺve earned my spurs on the battlefieldůand Donald Trump earned his spurs in a letter from a doctor.ö Former Defense Secretary James Mattis makes light of Pres. Trump calling him ôthe worldĺs most overrated general,ö speaking at the Al Smith dinner in NY/

https://twitchy.com/gregp-3534/2019/10/18/james-mattis-jokes-about-president-trumps-bone-spurs-at-the-al-smith-dinner/

While I've come to, if not accept, at least ignore Trump's Junior High name calling regarding his opponents, it still irritates me when he does it to people from his own administration* that he was earlier praising as, "The greatest ever!" He went from having a schoolboy crush on Mattis to saying some pretty stupid stuff about how crappy he is, while he (Trump) is the greatest military strategist the world has ever known. Now Mattis took careful aim and sent one downrange.  cheesy


* The Mooch and Omarosa deserved it, but they should never have gotten anywhere near the White House in the first place. People like Mattis and Tillerson deserve a bit more respect, especially since unlike Mooch and Omarosa, they were showing respect and mostly staying silent when they parted ways with the administration (or the administration parted ways with them).

Donald J. Trump - the J is for genius.

How nice of the coastal elites to invite a military elite to join in on bashing the president.
The fake-news media will probably play this one on loop for days.
PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT!

Mattis sure acts butt hurt for such a tough guy.

Is he on the boards of or a shareholder in any part of the MIC?

I was pretty high on him initially but I've come to be underwhelmed.

Don't be surprised if surgery is recommended if you see a surgeon.

Don't be surprised if military options are recommended if you ask a general.

I used to like John Bolton as well, but he turned out to be nothing more than another neocon blowhard.

The country has been voting to get out of these middle east entanglements for decades and the monoparty functionaries just aren't listening.

They certainly aren't working for the voters.

Mattis was on the board of Theranos, which was a scam and the subject of the book Bad Blood.  He is currently on the board of General Dynamics.

Well, that's part of the problem, isn't it? New aholes pop up every week and we have to decide if they're aholes we want to be allies with or enemies with. ŚBen on APS
