‘Glad he is gone’: Trump fires back at Mattis’ attack describing him as most divisive president

Wa Examiner:

President Trump is not happy with his former defense secretary’s recent comments condemning his leadership in the wake of the social unrest after George Floyd’s death.

“Probably the only thing Barack Obama & I have in common is that we both had the honor of firing Jim Mattis, the world’s most overrated General,” Trump tweeted Wednesday night. “I asked for his letter of resignation, & felt great about it. His nickname was ‘Chaos’, which I didn’t like, & changed to ‘Mad Dog’ His primary strength was not military, but rather personal public relations. I gave him a new life, things to do, and battles to win, but he seldom ‘brought home the bacon’. I didn’t like his ‘leadership’ style or much else about him, and many others agree. Glad he is gone!”

Mattis wrote a long statement earlier in the day, saying he was “angry and appalled” about Trump’s attempts to control heightened protests over the last week.

Protests that followed after the police killing of Floyd quickly turned into several nights of violent rioting. Trump threatened to send in the military if state and local governments did not take care of it. more

  1. A guy that is famous for saying such things “Have a plan to kill everyone in the room just doesn’t come across as a pacifist all that well.

  2. PHenry – I don’t know why he was put in there. But it seems like Trump has a conveyor belt of swampy people that he puts into different positions until they find themselves out the door. lol

  3. How is Trump divisive when, for example, he’s getting more black voters by the month than any other R has? More support from gays, women, Christians…

  4. I remember being excited when ‘tough guy’ Mattis was appointed. Sort of like when Bannon and Bolton we’re appointed. People who mouthed the right words.

    I don’t trust anyone anymore.

  5. Trump has at least dozen or so *really* bad hires and Mattis fits into that group along with Jeff Sessions, Rex Tillerson, Omarosa, Scaramucci and the rest of the ingrates that break tradition and bash a sitting POTUS.

  6. Who’s giving the recommendations for these assholes anyway?
    There’s no education in the second kick of a mule.

  7. @gin blossom.

    I am totally stealing that line.
    There’s no education in the second kick of a mule.

  8. Whatever he did in the military is now just pissed on, he should go home & polish his cheap bi-metal, worthless medals.

  9. The Los Angeles mayor (garcetti) and the city council just paid the ransom – and capitulated to a fascist remake of the city government:

    Los Angeles is cutting $100M–$150M from LAPD budget to be “reinvested in black communities and communities of color”
    “American society is founded on a racial hierarchy, one that is born out of slavery, followed by Jim Crow segregation and corporate abuse of labor. As such, police departments are asked to enforce a system of laws that are designed to reinforce and maintain economic and racial inequality.”




  10. Academic Study conducted by Washington state liberals no less shows Racism Has DECLINED Under Trump

    What they found is a decrease in racism under Trump: the two sociologists conducting the study are not running around in Make America Great Again hats. But the obvious difference between racial attitudes under Trump and under Obama is that Trump is nowhere near as racially divisive as Barry was.

    The only way the media have been able to smear Trump as a racist is through lies and deliberate misquotes. Obama’s rhetoric was over the top against the police on every issue, his relentless attacks on Republicans as racist, his role (and CNN’s) in exacerbating the racial tensions that resulted in race riots in Ferguson and Baltimore, or his supporters’ relentless attacks on everyday Americans as racist…

    Trump, on the other hand, has offered only a unifying message about race and against racism. Under Obama, racial tensions were always at a boil.

    Under Trump, racial tensions (outside of the lies screamed in the news media) have settled down considerably.

    Over the last two years, not only have blacks and Hispanics watched their economic conditions improve in ways Obama never seemed to care about, unlike any Republican over the last 30 years, Trump is actively reaching out and asking for the black vote. He is also willing to earn that vote through his economic policies, criminal justice reform (which Obama talk-talk-talked about for years, while Trump signed it into law), and immigration policies that restrict the illegal and cheap labor that disproportionately hurts working-class incomes and, by extension, black and Hispanic Americans.

  11. Interesting to see all of this pandering to the radical blacks especially considering that their influence is declining as that of the Hispanics is rising. Doesn’t really look like a winning strategy now does it? Republicans should go after the non-radical black, Latino and Asian voters, they must be feeling a bit left out.

  12. Trump wins again Mattis says we shouldn’t use military but the protestors were now attacking a children’s hospital in Houston. One father leaving with crying little girl has rocks thrown at his car. Animals
