Trump Tweet regarding General Mattis
Twitter ^ | Jun 3, 2020 | President Trump

Posted on 06/03/2020 6:07:13 PM PDT by McGruff

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

Probably the only thing Barack Obama & I have in common is that we both had the honor of firing Jim Mattis, the world’s most overrated General. I asked for his letter of resignation, & felt great about it. His nickname was “Chaos”, which I didn’t like, & changed to “Mad Dog”...

...His primary strength was not military, but rather personal public relations. I gave him a new life, things to do, and battles to win, but he seldom “brought home the bacon”. I didn’t like his “leadership” style or much else about him, and many others agree. Glad he is gone!

You know... I can’t think of anyone I’d back over President Trump right now. If Trump doesn’t like you, I don’t like you.

I think Mattis was a great commander and Commandant of Marines.

But when his job had more political responsibilities, he clearly got in over his head.

If he now sticks his head up to engage in political sniping at Trump, turnabout is fair play.

Most of Trump’s tweets make my teeth itch, but this one was pitch-perfect.

Ohh, that's gotta' leave a mark.

Is there objective evidence to support this? Aside from Mattis?

perhaps the general may wish to wait awhile before asking PDJT for a recommendation letter?

ha!

Mattis is the one who decided to go public with his grumblings. Fine. That provides the perfect opening for Mr. Trump, who is more than happy to return the favor.
And quickly!! Trump’s Clap Back occurred in the same day as Mattis laments.

An unnecessary response. Should have ignored Mattis. The star ranks are populated by people withing the system and are naturally deep staters.

In The Swamp, all the Swamp Creatures talk an awesome game. Your real doers are more humble and low-key, generally, so are easily overlooked on the first pass of appointees.

I don't think President Trump had any idea about how deep the corruption was in DC. That's why they're desperate to get him out now. He won't play ball with them.
