Before we play the fake news or he didn't say it game. His staff came out in defense of this and refused to deny the statements.

Quote:
Mattis was "the worldís most overrated general."

"You know why? He wasnít tough enough," Trump said, according to the aides. "I captured ISIS. Mattis said it would take two years. I captured them in one month."
And now he has let them go.


Mattis responds:

Quote:
"Iím not just an overrated general. I am the greatest, the world's most overrated general," Mattis said Thursday evening.

"I'm honored to be considered that by Donald Trump because he also called Meryl Streep an overrated actress. So I guess I'm the Meryl Streep of generals, and frankly that sounds pretty good to me," Mattis said, referring to the Academy Award-winning actress.

"And you do have to admit that, between me and Meryl, at least we've had some victories," he added.

To say that Trump has some "issues" would be an understatement. But even with all his warts I still prefer him to ALL of the available alternatives.

Would it be gender-insensitive to say he throws like a girl?

You'd be insulting girls. I'd say he throws like a queer.

Yeah, we get it, you’re gonna waste your vote and help the left by going third party, or maybe even straight left....not that Trump ever really had your support anyway.

Anyway, Trump is an idiot, he says stupid things....whatever. The country is still better off with him as the President than we’d have been with anyone else that ran in 2016, or that will run in 2020.

Mattis wasn't the one claiming how tough he was and saying "I" captured ISIS. Ironically the Kurds did the majority of the ground fighting.

Yeah, you may want to watch your butt around him as well. If you drop something use a pole to pick it up.

Mattis is a legend and legends never die. I am surprised he even responded to Trump‘s absurdity. A simple laugh it off would have sufficed.

Ironically? Why in Godís name should one American solider have to die in that ****ing waste land known as the Middle East? They are 100 years behind the rest of the world, they are still tribes that fight their neighbors and surrounding tribes, thatís what they do and in another 100 years they will still be doing it.
In fact if science does figure out how to do without fossil fuels that whole area will not matter to any civilized country in the world. They can go back to their goat herding and killing each other, I doubt anyone will care.
The Kurds are so backasswards that when given the opportunity to have their own government and country after WW1 they couldnít/wouldnít form a government.
Trumps right on this, the Kurds arenít our allies they just needed us for there own survival while fighting ISIS.
We need to quit being the worlds police and stop trying to nation build.

Not one more dead America solider over there...
