Trump muzzles Mad Dog Mattis


Mattis is out of the loop and Trump doesn’t listen to him, say officials. On Iran, North Korea and other major issues, the defense secretary has been out of the loop.  NBCNews


Trump is smarter than all of the generals; that is

The reason he hasn’t had powwows with Mattis.

Though he’s been an advisor

Mattis should be much wiser

And might as well leave since he’s fallen in status.

  • Whoever is the general at the NYMA is going to clean the supply sgt's clock.

  • Thanks -- but at least we still have a cabinet, muzzled as they are. I can't quite believe I need to think that way.

  • In reply to Margaret H. Laing:

    Don't forget that the cabinet "serves at the pleasure of the President" and this one contains such sleazeballs as Pruitt and haters as Sessions. I'm still convinced that the only thing that keeps this cabinet in office is that it would now be impossible to get replacements confirmed.

    Also, from this Politico article asking about the same question, Mattis has not been effective in changing policies that count.
