Mattis Doesn’t Take Kindly to Woodward Lies, Blasts with Marine-Grade Response
The Western Journal ^ | September 5, 2018 at 9:34am | Malachi Bailey

Secretary of Defense James Mattis is denying making the negative statements about President Donald Trump that are claimed in a new book by the Washington Post’s Bob Woodward.

And he’s not leaving any room for doubt.

“The contemptuous words about the president attributed to me in Woodward’s book were never uttered by me or in my presence,” Mattis said in a statement, according to Washington Examiner.

“While I generally enjoy reading fiction, this is a uniquely Washington brand of literature, and his anonymous sources do not lend credibility.”

In Twitter posts Tuesday, Trump also gave his opinion on Woodward’s book, calling it “discredited” and called the quotes in it “a con on the public.”

The Woodward book has already been refuted and discredited by General (Secretary of Defense) James Mattis and General (Chief of Staff) John Kelly. Their quotes were made up frauds, a con on the public. Likewise other stories and quotes. Woodward is a Dem operative? Notice timing?

Trump also hinted at pushing a change to libel laws in light of the book.

Don't Mess with Texas.

It's not nice to mess with Mother Nature.

It is very dangerous to Mess with a 4 star Marine General.

Especially if he works for Donald J. Trump.

Some on twitter though that it was him, but I didn’t think so. He’s not they of guy to take it from the Donald lying down and he’s not going to go behind anybody’s back.

He’ll bring the fight to you, regardless of who you are.

I was considering the proper Marine response, having a few of them as friends, but when I started to write the words, my monitor burst into flames, so I will just say, they really don’t want to hear a proper Marine response.

General Mattis’s response was perfect. The calm with which Team Trump is dismissing their opponents’ desperate attacks tells us who has the upper hand. Mattis effortlessly blocked the weak slap of a pussy.

Indeed, it was effortless.

However, our poker table conversation don't sound anything like that.

None of us know exactly where this will end. The Left and Globalist seem to think there are too many of them to actually be charged. I think they are in error.

Entrench Bureaucraps are the issue. Some of them have been singed but not enough to get their attention, yet.

You need not remind him. He is a very wise 4 star general. And a Marine on top of that. Speaks a lot in a few words.

Seems to me you missed something. General John Kelly, Trump’s Chief of Staff is ALSO a Marine General. Anybody who takes on TWO Marine Generals has to be stark, raving, mad! Woodward is long past his sell by date and trying to get a few nickles in his has been pocket.

I don’t believe it is anybody inside the White House.

This is too similar:

https://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2010/07/15/david-a-graham-a-closer-look-at-a-newsweek-reporter/

I think this is all made up by some of the Deep State and Reporters cabal. Just to create division and chaos.

Semper Fi, I also recollect what a proper Marine response would have required, every preacher within 20 miles would have wanted to perform an exorcism at that ;-D
