James Mattis, Trumps Former Secretary Of Defense, Denounces The President.
Something changed last night. I am hearing from conservative friends and relatives in states like WV, VA, and SC who are finally done with Trump. One is writing in "Romney-Mattis." Another one is voting Biden. He just told me, "I want him [Trump] crushed.".
Breaking The Atlantic: James Mattis Denounces President Trump, Describes Him as a Threat to the Constitution. In an extraordinary condemnation, the former defense secretary backs protesters and says Trump is trying to turn Americans against one other.
Mattis, who has enormous wealth and power, will be praised for saying the bare minimum now. Is it better than continued silence? Sure. But he'll be fine; there's no big risk. The real risks are being taken by activists in the streets. That's bravery. Not this shell of a soldier.
Jim Mattis.....too late John Kelly..... too late Rex Tillerson..too late John Bolton...too late Who else.......??????
Where was Mattis when the DemoKKKrats nonstop were trying to destroy Trump? I'm sick to death of the "Trump doesn't unite" crowd that says NOTHING about the scumbucket fascists called DemoKKKrats.
Everyone please read this!
Trump compared himself to Lincoln today. And McEnany compared Trump to Churchill. And yet Mattis spoke out, essentially labeling Trump's leadership as contrary to American values.
The left embraces "war criminal" Gen. Mattis. If Adolf Hitler rose from the grave to condemn Trump they'd embrace him too.
Since Mattis has broken his silence, I will break mine. Mattis accessed the Administration thru an individual who was FIRED from the transition team. The reason for firing? He was meeting with Chinese & Vietnamese communists in Beijing.
You're not even a fraction of the man that General Mattis you draft dodging piece of shit!
BREAKING: Former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis compares Trump's protest response to Nazi tactics.
2017: Donald Trump names James Mattis his pick for Secretary of Defense. 2020: James Mattis names Donald Trump a threat to the U.S. Constitution. This is not the moment to attack Mattis. This is the moment to amplify every voice speaking out against the present crisis.
Here it is.
Let me guess . . . Mattis said bad things about you? Time for the inevitable Trump attack against critics again?
Mattis just compared Trump to nazis.
You will never be half the man Obama is. Or General Mattis. You are a weak, cowardly, ignorant man who has never pleased a woman, never been loved, never loved anyone other than yourself, and have no good in you. Oh and you are also a rapist.
Mattis resigned. You can even read his resignation letter!
This is what it looks like to put patriotism over party.
Her word carries no weight next to Mattis.
Mattis and Will both invoked Nazis in their criticisms of the Trump Administration. They aren't leftist radicals.
General Mattis spoke truth to power in a way few retired military officers are willing to do. He deserves a lot of credit and our thanks.
My hot take: James Mattis just made it a lot easier for many, many other respected defense officials and Republican lawmakers to criticize the president.
Mattis resigned in protest because Trump wanted to withdraw troops from Syria. He has no moral high ground.
So we have video of Troops kneeling to protesters and Gen. Mattis comes out comparing Trump to Nazix? Do you see the psyop here? They are trying to get the troops to turn on POTUS and support their coup.
Mattis deserves our support in a long game to get rid of Trump. Elite defections are key to opposong authoritarians. They encourage other elites who inwardly oppose the leader but hv been afraid/bought off/blackmailed to do the right thing.
The contrast in statements between General Mattis and Senator Cotton today is striking. So who do you trust more?
Former Pentagon Chief James Mattis rips Donald Trump.
Heed the warning of your predecessor. Have conviction. Demonstrate courage. Take decisive action. Or resign.
Look, I understand the competition is fierce and that this may be a controversial view, but I think Trump claiming to have given Jim Mattis the nickname Mad Dog may, in fact, be the stupidest thing he has ever said. At a minimum it breaks the top 5 list.
Why did Obama fire Mattis???
Mattis wants Americans to unite, but only around war in the Middle East.
Mattis is denouncing trump.
When I wrote a profile about Mattis 11 years ago, I was told only people who don't know Mattis call him Mad Dog, because he disliked the nickname. Chaos stood for: Colonel Has Another Outstanding Suggestion, from earlier in his career.
Mattis wanted to keep troops in the Middle East but not on the southern border of America. Those were just two of the policy disagreements he had with Trump. What a dud Mattis turned out to be.
Mattis was a do nothing AG.
James Mattis is a traitor to America.
General Mattis has authorized the use of Hitler analogies.
Amen. Thank you, General for breaking your silence!
The president is claiming credit for the nickname Mattis had for many years before Trump entered politics.
James Mattis brings the fire against Trump: "We must reject and hold accountable those in office who would make a mockery of our Constitution." Waiting for the Trump tweetstorm on this one tonight...
Trump wont bow down to press. Press hates him. Trump wont bow down to establishment GOP. GOP hates him. Trump wont bow down to Dem Party. Dems hate him. Trump wont bow down to Mattis. Mattis hates him. Trump must be doing something right here.
