Mattis Strikes Back, Kicks Trump To the Curb
Like most ex-Trump aides, former US defense secretary, general James Mattis, since leaving the White House, been the target of insults and abuse by Trump.
Mattis said that he would speak his mind but, in fairness to his successor(s), not for a while, a year.
That year passed last night when a local RC cardinal invited Mattis to be the dinner speaker at a gathering in New York. The former four-star Marine Corps general put his sights squarely on the Mango Mussolini in one of the finest speeches I've heard in years.
