Mattis is afraid for his job. He is so scared of Trumps insanity he feels he has to do anything to keep his job just to control the madman

You took a pounding in this thread, but:

I could see this being the absolute reason Mattis took the job and remains at the helm of the DoD. Something tells me there's nothing about it Mattis (or Kelly for that matter) 'likes' at all.

ETA: What is glaringly obvious to me from their statements, is the blatant omission of further endorsement of President Trump. Look and look. It's just not there.

Mattis faces his 'moron' moment






The Pentagon chief has avoided the private snickering about Trump that has cost others but is featured in new Woodward book.

It's no secret that President Donald Trump and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis often disagree, but the disciplined retired Marine general has kept any private frustrations from leaking into public view.

Or at least until Bob Woodward came along.



Is it worst being called a moron or a fifth grader?

www.politico.com...




In his forthcoming book, the veteran investigative journalist reports that an exasperated Mattis, who has gone to great lengths to maintain his rapport with his commander-in-chief, unleashed on the president in a private conversation with associates, comparing Trump to a “fifth- or sixth-grader.”

The revelation puts Mattis in a hot seat similar to ones occupied by several other top Trump officials, including former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, former national security adviser H.R. McMaster and White House chief of staff John Kelly, who have all reportedly insulted Trump’s intelligence—and watched their relationship with the president suffer as a result.


The problem folks is Woodward has tapes with peoples words on them.

Of course Mattis is going to deny he said Trump was a fifth grader

Trump was already getting tired of Mattis


Mattis is out of the loop and Trump doesn't listen to him, say officials

Yeah Woodward’s a loser all the way to the bank and all his massive best sellers about many presidents


Were you guys calling him a liar when the Obama book came out?

I doubt it.


Mattis probably made a remark in anger belittling Trump, that's a likely possibility

no big deal happens all the time.

I find it very sad that you, and most of your mindset, will believe a person writing a book based on 2nd hand stories and anonymous sources, but dismiss direct statements to the falsification of the writings by the actual people he is writing about.

That is just insanity really.

you realize this was a guy that was fired under the Obama Administration because he wouldn't suck up to the civilian appointees.

As already stated multiple times this is a guy that sees the right path and walks it consequences be darned.

Wow.

Mattis is not the only guilty party trump lovers there’s many more

Kelly has called Trump an idiot, Steve Bannon said that Trump was “like an 11-year-old child, McMaster mocked Trump, also calling him an “idiot,”

“Both Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and former chief of staff Reince Priebus called Trump an “idiot,” Wolff wrote. Former economic adviser Gary Cohn said Trump was “dumb as #”


Mattis denies it, unlike Tillerson who when the deal about his moron came out he never denied it. Trump fired him

Mattis has to deny this because if he doesn’t Trump will fire him for insubordination, he's a military man.

He has already been fired by the DNC PC brigade, so can you actually come up with a coherent argument as to why at this late stage in his life he would throw away everything he has done over the course of his long distinguished career?

Don't you think Mattis in a state of anger could have said something bad about Trump?

If he did, I think he is man enough to admit it. He is not the type to lie, or hide from anything....just my opinion

If he wrote anything bad about Obama I’m sure you would get on him also. Right?

You're not defending Mattis your defending Trump

When he wrote Obama's book they also criticized Woodward.

What happened to investigative journalism?

Is woodward going to investigate the intel community and politicians lying us into wars where thousands die, bailing out corrupt bankers, or how the federal reserve is a scam to rip off the American citizens?


Nope, but hes got all the gossip on who called who what in trumps team!

Terry Schappert ( special forces ) was on Greg Gutfeld one night, Greg asked Terry what he thought of Mattis .

Here's the quote as best as I can remember it .

Terry: Some Friends told me Mattis has a bearskin rug in his living room .

Awkward pause

They say the Bear's not dead it's just afraid to move .
