Mattis must think that he is the next James Comey. His timing could not be worse. He has shamed his uniform, and shown that he nothing but just another Washington swamp creature.
The country’s economy is wrecked because of the Covet 19 virus, and the cities are burning with arsonists and looters ruling the night. Who is supposed to keep order when the local police departments can’t do it? Disreputable local leaders, like Bill DeBlasio, won’t call in the National Guard.
Yes, I wish that Trump could be more diplomatic in his comments. At the same time, we have had more three years of the Democrat false narrative with the Russia hoax and crooked Justice Department and FBI officials making up crimes to harass Trump supporters and aids.
Given the crises that are facing the country, Mattis has cast all honor aside to act like Douglas McArthur. Like McArthur, he has an impressive military record, but also, like McArthur, he as a huge ego that demands he hog the attention with his petty complaints.
I am currently reading a biography of the Eisenhower presidency. Mattis is no Eisenhower. He is an egomaniac who is only concerned with his own aggrandizement.
