President Donald Trump suggested to CBS’ “60 Minutes” that Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis is “sort of a Democrat” who could be leaving his post relatively soon.
In a clip of the interview that is set to air in full Sunday evening, Trump said Mattis, a former Marine Corps general, hasn’t told him he planned to leave the administration but it “could be that he is.” “I have a very good relationship with him,” Trump told CBS’ Lesley Stahl. “I think he’s sort of a Democrat if you want to know the truth.
But Gen. Mattis is a good guy. We get along very well. He may leave. I mean, at some point, everybody leaves. People leave. That’s Washington.”


Mad Dog seems to be one of the few people that i know of in this administration that most everyone approves of.

everything i have read points to him being no nonsense yet level headed, fair and very intelligent.

we need people like that

Not everyone has the stomach to deal with the corruption within D.C. I believe Nikki resigned for this motive.

If Mattis stepped down that would be a huge loss for the Trump administration.

The guy is amazing.

I like Trump and he should keep Mattis . People say the ofiice of the potus is very restricted by the constitution but it seems he has a lot of power all to himself

i wondered about it too.


he seems to be the kind of guy that would not be involved in any of the drama that has been surrounding this administration.

and yeah. he seems to be just the kind of guy that needs to be there

tough
fair
intelligent
level headed

kind of the opposite of the administration he serves

Nothing personal. I just thought it was ironic that your post said no minimal content and that was the most minimal content.

So basically Trump said nothing other than he likes Mattis and of course the media acts like he is going to fire him. The usual BS.

Yeah, and so are the convulated twisted headlines and out of context reporting. Nobody is stepping down, and Trump has alleged no such thing. The interview went from a general attack on his white house staff with claims of chao, to asking if he would leave.
Maybe it would be prudent to listen to the conversation. He said he doesn't know that mattis has said nothing to him. Upon further being pressed, he just said maybe. Everyone leaves at some point, a reference to the fact none of these positions are permanent and get reset after elections.

I still suspects Nikki resigned because she is pregnant.

Funny how everyone who Trump thinks is his opponent in one way or another is a Democrat. God, Trump is such an idiot and even more so for going after Mattis because Mattis is loved by Republicans and has even garnered respect of the Left for being one of the few Adults in that poop show of an administration. So of course, Trump wants him out.

yes i know

i posted what the article said which is exactly what you just said

mattis has not said he is leaving
he may leave

people leave

i guess it sounds better when you post it

i forgot that anything not awesome about trump causes people to jump into full defense mode.

i said nothing negative in the OP so calm down

just that most people approve of mattis and he is the type of person we need

guess that is wrong too

Yeah I understand what happened. Still thought it was funny. No need to get all worked up about it.

Did Trump say one negative thing about Mattis? I don't think so.

Funny how that is actually true... Progressives are his opponents and they are either Progressive Democrats or Progressive Republicans. To him the Progressive movement is defined as "Democrat", since by all measures the two words mean the same thing now.

However, if you actually watch the clip you will find that the HuffPo "gasp" took his comment out of context.

Just another left-wing op ed to keep you pumped up for the midterms.

So you were in a rush to post this up...

Why's that?

Me thinks it's to be the first to board the outrage train to Trump town.

I really have no opinion on this matter regardless. General's come and go. His comment was taken out of context like usual.

Notice I did not accuse you, but the convulated headlines. Let me provide examples.




CBS: “Trump ‘60 Minutes’ interview: President suggests Defense Secretary James Mattis could leave Cabinet.”

Bloomberg: “Trump Hints Pentagon Chief Mattis May Be Planning to Quit.”

The Guardian: “Trump: Jim Mattis 'sort of a Democrat' and could quit as defense secretary soon.”

The Daily Mail: “Trump signals more Cabinet changes to come with General Mattis on the chopping block.”


Now you see why I would get defensi. I read this in other venues before I read it here. Just because I defended the POTUS does not mean I am attacking you. Perhaps you should quit trying to play your game of "aha! " All the time.

At least you learned your lesson. An honorable admission. I am satisfied.

Trump has a very fragile ego...If Mattis gets axed it's because of his comment calling trump a idiot.
