Former Defense Secretary James Mattis told then-Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats that President Trump was “dangerous” and “unfit,” according to excerpts from Bob Woodward’s upcoming book “Rage.”

Mattis, who left the White House at the end of 2018 over differences on defense strategy with the president, warned Coats that “there may come a time when we have to take collective action” against Trump, according to excerpts of the Woodward book reported upon by The Washington Post,

The Post did not say if Woodward’s book clarified what kind of “collective action” Mattis was referencing.......

Collective action could be mass resignation and protest, it could be a coup. It is good that he left.

Anyone who expects an objective review from Axelrod or The Hill is playing with themselves.

“Mattis told Coats Trump is ‘dangerous,’ ‘unfit’: Woodward book”

well, that’s about 3rd or 4th hand by the time that made it into the book ... has anyone asked mattis to confirm or deny that he made the statement?

Isn’t Dan Coates an Obama holdover or an I thinking of Ben Rhoades?

Next up from The Hole: Trump Farts In Bed!

I don’t think they’re that far away from such contrivances.

This is a perfect example of how brilliant the Founders were to place control of the military in civilian hands. When it comes to dangerous people I think Mattis fits that category. Continual war is how generals keep their jobs and advance through the ranks. His remark about “collective action” can be interpreted to mean sedition.

Lindsey Graham is close with Mattis, and Lindsey Graham got Woodward in the White House.

It’s been FOUR YEARS!!!!

If you are dangerous and unfit...results happen fast!

Trust me.. :)

I wasn’t always this sane.

How many days has he had to get us into a HUGE conflict for no reason or to irrationally launch nukes?

A lot.

How do they explain that away?

“there may come a time when we have to take collective action”

The US has ruled the world for almost a century.
That many foreign and international bodies have inserted themselves into our affairs is only to be expected.
Shame they’ve taken over our media so thoroughly.

The whole reason they feel he is unfit IS BECAUSE he has NOT gotten into every damn conflict around!! They were all SCREAMING to get us into Venezuela AND Syria they feel he is unfit because he is NOT a NEOCON!, These ASSHATS have never seen a war they didn’t like!!! I would love to see ALL of their bank accounts just to see if they have hidden funds from these government contractors!!

Woodward has no credibility in light of Dr. Fausi contradicting his other claims about Trump on Covid19.

I like the alternate reality from the movie The Watchmen where Woodward was shot dead by The Comedian.

What puzzles me is that Trump gave Woodward extensive interviews for the book. Trump oughta know who Woodward is or at least one of his underlings should have. I really don’t understand some of the moves his team makes sometimes. At times its like they’re trying to lose.

If Mattis or anyone of the other second hand accounts feel so strongly about Trump they need to come out and say so loudly and clearly.

Mattis is a "lifelong" bachelor. He doesn't associate with women. He is bent like Bill Clinton's ding dong.
