James Mattis crushed this sick plan to take out Donald Trump
The fake news media celebrated.
They thought Bob Woodward’s bombshell book was the final nail in Trump’s coffin.
But then James Mattis stepped up and crushed the media’s plan to use the book to take out Trump.
Woodward’s book “Fear” is chock full of anonymous sources peddling fake news.
Part of the book focuses on Mattis supposedly having no respect for President Trump.
Trump questioned American policy in South Korea and Afghanistan and Woodward claimed Trump had a “fifth or sixth grader’s” understanding of the world.
Woodward’s sources also told a story about Trump ordering Mattis to assassinate Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and Mattis disobeying the order.
Mattis responded with a forceful denial.
He released a statement comparing the book to fiction and that Woodward’s anonymous sources have no credibility.

The media defended Woodward’s book by claiming he had hundreds of hours of interviews on tape.
But all that proves is he has an audio tape of sources making up stories.
It does not back up the preposterous claims made in “Fear.”
