Former secretary of defense Jim Mattis told aides he would rather 'swallow acid' than allow Trump to throw a $50million 'Victory Parade', and said the president's summit with Putin was a display of the White House seeking 'instant gratification', a new book reveals.
Mattis, who was known as 'Mad Dog' during his career in the military, resigned in December 2018 following Trump's decision to withdraw US troops from Syria.
The defense chief's former speechwriter Guy Snodgrass has detailed his clashes with the president in new book, Holding The Line: Inside Trump's Pentagon With Secretary Mattis, obtained by DailyMail.com ahead of its publication next week.
At one point Mattis was frank with a group of reporters about Trump telling them: 'I'm not trying to put lipstick on a pig for you,' retired Navy Cmdr. Guy Snodgrass writes.

The Swamp is deep. Too much money there
Mattis was another swamper out of his element. He thought he was smarter than the President. Whether it’s smarts or good instincts, this President got elected against a cheating, lying Dim machine and he’s done better than any President in my long life, even with one hand tied behind his back.
Idiot sounds like he is already in acid.
This is staged pys-ops folks.
“Mattis, through his assistant, blasted the book’s author as showing ‘absence of character’ for writing it but does not dispute its accuracy”..fake news.
Well that really changes my opinion of Mattis. I was planing on attending the parade. It wan’t “Trumps parade”. It was scheduled on the 100 th anniversary of the end of the First World War, and would have been a fitting tribute.
Allow? Mattis is pretty full of himself. Hell want to down some acid after seeing Trumps victory parade.
I would not trust any of 0bama’s generals. Real warriors are not good at kissing ass on Capitol Hill.

Ike warned us about the military-industrial complex...
You are correct. This is a systematic, coordinated attack to get Trump out of office by any means necessary.
Read this earlier typical Deep State take on things. The President comes from the business world and things are done very differently there than in Washington. I understand what the President was doing maybe the writer needs to get back to the real world. The Deep State just dont understand the average person and most likely never will. They want to spend billions on defense and send our kids to die in long drawn out conflicts. They are never held accountable for what they have been doing since Vietnam. Why would we listen to these bumbling idiots.
Mr. Trump, let’s get this right the second time around.
Compose your LOOOOOOONG list of people to fire and start executing it at 8AM on 1/21/2021.
This just another traitorous Marine officer how embarrassing for this old Marine.
And don't forget the lying, cheating RINO machine. Pierre Delecto included
It just goes to show that anyone who has been rewarded by the Deep State with positions and promotions should be suspect until they prove they're willing to help destroy the system that rules the government from behind the scenes.
“Well that really changes my opinion of Mattis.”
Snodgrass, the self-promoting second-level Staffer is pleased.
