Former Defense Secretary James Mattis Responds To Trump: ‘I Earned My Spurs On The Battlefield’

Published

Former Defense Secretary James Mattis responded to criticisms from his former boss, President Trump, on Thursday, after Trump reportedly called him the “world’s most overrated general” during a meeting with congressional leaders earlier in the week.

Gen. Mattis responded to the comments while speaking at the 74th Annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner in New York, saying he welcomed Trump’s label.

Here’s more from The Washington Times:

“I’m not just an overrated general. I am the greatest — the world’s most overrated,” he said. “I’m honored to be considered that by Donald Trump because he also called Meryl Streep an overrated actress. So I guess I’m the Meryl Streep of generals, and frankly that sounds pretty good to me.”

“And you do have to admit that between me and Meryl, at least we’ve had some victories,” he said.

He said the rating didn’t bother him.

“Of course not — I earned my spurs on the battlefield. … Donald Trump earned his spurs in a letter from a doctor,” he said, a reference to Mr. Trump’s medical deferment during the Vietnam War.

The dinner where Mattis was speaking is a charity event where those who are called upon to speak typically roast public figures.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said that during a White House meeting held this week he pointed out to the president that Gen. Mattis had warned about the potential dangers of pulling troops out of northern Syria, which is what led to the retort against the general from President Trump.

WATCH: Biden Calls Military Members ‘Stupid B—’ During Overseas Speech As Vice President

And the MSM will remain silent.

It wasn’t that long ago when the mainstream media pushed a story accusing President Trump of denigrating US military members. The reports have been widely debunked, as one would expect. However, here’s actual footage of 2020 Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden calling them “stupid bastards.” And the MSM will remain silent. From The Daily Wire: A video emerged on Friday of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden calling soldiers “stupid bastards” and a “dull bunch” during a speech overseas to U.S. soldiers while he was serving as vice president in the Obama administration.

They must be tired of doing that by now. When Joe was in Germany he decided to bash America because apparently doing so on U.S. soil just isn’t enough. According to Biden, the United States is “an embarrassment.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1096974881801957376?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1096974881801957376&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Fjoe-biden-goes-to-germany-trashes-america-as-an-embarrassment%2F

Pelosi: If GOP Moves Forward With SCOTUS Nomination ‘There Has To Be A Price To Pay’

And what would that be??

Nancy Pelosi doesn’t think Joe Biden should debate President Trump. She doesn’t give a legitimate reason why, but come on – we all know why. Joe isn’t all there. From Fox News: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday doubled down on her argument that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden should not debate President Trump, claiming the Republican incumbent and his “henchmen” have no “fidelity” to facts or the truth. Asked during an interview on “Morning on CBS” whether she still believed the former vice president should skip the three scheduled debates, Pelosi said: “Oh, I do. Not that I don’t think he’ll be excellent. I just think that the president has no fidelity to fact or truth and, actually in his comments the last few days, no fidelity to the Constitution of the United States.” Here’s video of Pelosi claiming there “has to be a price to pay” if Republicans move forward with a SCOTUS nomination before the general election. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHx56Kxmea0&feature=emb_title Rush Limbaugh makes an excellent point about this upcoming SCOTUS pick. Congressional Republicans, take note. From The Hill: Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh urged Senate Republicans to skip the confirmation hearing process for President Trump’s soon-to-be announced Supreme Court nominee and head straight to a floor vote. “I want the Judiciary Committee — that could be great if it were skipped,” Limbaugh said Monday on his daily radio program. “We don’t need to open that up for whatever length of time, so that whoever this nominee is can be Kavanaugh’d, or Borked, or Thomas’d. Because that’s what it’s going to be, especially when it’s not even required.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/mmfa/status/1308100957390151683?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1308100957390151683%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fmedia%2F517408-rush-limbaugh-encourages-senate-to-skip-hearings-for-trumps-scotus-nominee H/T: Right Scoop
