What a load of crap. No one elected Mattis nor any of the “adults in the room” president- in fact, the get along go along crowd were roundly rejected by PDT’s election. Mattis has besmirched his legacy with petty sniping at PDT.
This letter belies everything he claims to stand for: the chain of command, respect for the office, grace or manners in leaving a job to which PDT fought hard to have him invested (don’t forget, all the lefties who are bemoaning Mattis leaving, 150 dems voted AGAINST the waiver to let him serve in the first place.
Now I wonder if Mattis was ever a good guy to begin with. Of course Jackazz Shaw portrays PDT as petty and reactive when it’s Mattis who is playing dirty here for no good reason. What’s his point with calling the president out on what Mattis sees as his shortcomings? Mattis isn’t president, for good reason.
He’s not even a good soldier and has no respect, and probably knows his tantrum will be bad for the country in its effect, but he had to get his digs in, for petty, personal reasons. Fuck him and good riddance. I voted for PDT to rock the boat, not go along with establishment types. Mattis has been wrong on about everything that happened in the last 8 years while he sucked obama’s dick, if he still has that mindset than he can go write his memoirs OUT OF POWER. Don’t let the door hit you on the ass.
I don’t give 2 shits about his ‘honorable service;- he has destroyed any grace he earned by this back-stabbing, asinine, ignorant stunt. Why only PDT gets castigated for this kind of behaviour illustrates the double standard. Fuck Mattis eternally and I’m glad he’s gone.
