Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, June 06, 2020

The Never Trumper Republicans of The Lincoln Project have mobilized former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis's scathing broadside against the president in their latest attack on Donald Trump. Mattis, a retired Marine Corps general, "does what he's always done: leads ... and deserves to be heard by all Americans," the ad says. The narrator reads some of the bombshell lines from a statement Wednesday by Mattis in The Atlantic: "Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people -- does not even pretend to try. Instead, he tries to divide us. We know that we are better than the abuse of executive authority. We must reject and hold accountable everyone who would make a mockery of our Constitution."

Gen Mattis' comment from October last year ...

Mattis Takes Swipe At Trump: 'I Earned My Spurs On The Battlefield'

...Delivering the keynote address at the 74th Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner, Mattis " a retired four-star U.S. Marine general " said he felt he had finally "achieved greatness."

"I'm not just an overrated general, I am the greatest, the world's most overrated," he said to laughter.

"I'm honored to be considered that by Donald Trump, because he also called Meryl Streep an overrated actress," Mattis continued. "So, I guess I'm the Meryl Streep of generals. Frankly that sounds pretty good to me."...

Mattis said he had been asked what he thought of Trump's remarks, which reportedly came during a White House meeting with congressional Democrats on Wednesday.

"I earned my spurs on the battlefield ... Donald Trump earned his spurs in a letter from a doctor," he said in a reference to a medical deferment for bone spurs that kept Trump from serving in the military during the Vietnam War....

The contrast between battle-hardened Mattis and cowardly Trump is stark.

You're going to love the counter-ads. Panetta on loop from the last admin when Mattis was ---- canned for pushing war on Iran: "Mattis lacks the maturity to look at all of the options that a president should look at in order to make the right decisions".
