James Mattis went on TV and said something about Trump that no one could believe
Former Secretary of Defense James Mattis resigned last December over Donald Trump’s decision to end Barack Obama’s disastrous war in Syria.
Many members of the Fake News Media hoped Mattis would use that decision to attack Donald Trump in 2020.
And James Mattis just went on TV and said something about Trump that no one could believe.
Former Secretary of Defense James Mattis appeared on “Meet the Press” where anti-Trump host Chuck Todd expected Mattis to rip into Donald Trump for his decision to withdraw troops for Syria.
Mattis did not, however, stick to the script.
The former marine general told Todd the American people did not need the military telling them how to choose their leaders.
Mattis says the public doesn’t need military generals to help them make their political decisions: “I have a lot of faith in the American people."

This infuriated Todd and other members of the Fake News Media.
Because of Mattis’ long and distinguished military career, he is seen as the one current or former public official in Washington, D.C. that the American people can trust to shoot straight.
So-called “journalists” were looking for Mattis to deliver the sound bite they could use to define Donald Trump as dangerous and unfit for office.
But Mattis didn’t bite.
While Mattis did restate his disagreement with the President over Syria, he never went so far as to use that policy dispute to call for the President’s removal from office or defeat in 2020.
