Andrea Mitchell HATES That Jim Mattis Won’t Bash Trump

It has been a lot of fun watching former Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis make his media rounds to promote his new book. It’s been fun for two reasons, specifically: One, he has much to say about the leadership failures of President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. Two, he consistently REFUSES to do what the media wants him to do, which is light into President Trump, the man under whom he served at the top of the Pentagon. This has led liberal hosts from CNN to CBS to practically grab their hair in frustration, and nowhere was that frustration more palpable than when MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell sat down with Mad Dog on Thursday.

“Aren’t our alliances now weaker than they were when you took office?” Mitchell asked early in the interview, already abandoning any pretense of objectivity. “In the last two and a half years, we’ve seen our alliances weakened in NATO. Certainly in Asia and in Europe.”

Mitchell stated her opinion as a fact, but Mattis rejected her assessment.

“I think we’re into the fourth straight year or fifth straight year of the nations, almost all of them, increasing their defense budget. So I could quantitatively NATO’s actually stronger today,” he said.


A few minutes later, she tried from another angle.

“Our reporting is that 127 military projects that were supposed to be underway and also including daycare centers,” she said, referring to Trump’s re-allocation of Pentagon funds. “Daycare centers at Joint Base Andrews are having the money that was appropriated by Congress taken away to, quote, ‘build the wall.’ How is that appropriate? I mean, it’s taking money away from military families. So aren’t you creating a new problem when you spend money, billions of dollars to build a wall that arguably isn’t needed to fulfill a campaign promise and take money away from daycare for military families?

Mattis responded to this political speech calmly: “Yeah, Andrea, having left the administration and laid out in writing and straightforward manner with the President, before I left, that I was leaving on policy differences, I believe in an old French saying of ‘devoir de réserve,’ a period of silence.”

This got under Mitchell’s skin. “I know you don’t want to discuss it,” she said, “but I know you care about the troops and their families.”

By the end of the interview, Mitchell was practically attacking Mattis directly.

“And just finally, you’re taking some criticism because you’re so critical of President Obama and his decisions, Joe Biden’s decisions, George W. Bush, in fact, in Iraq and elsewhere, that you are reluctant to deal with what happened in this – what is happening in this administration. Do you fear that you might be normalizing the decisions of this president because you are so critical of his predecessors?” she asked, plainly just spouting her own opinion.

“Yeah, I don’t think one person can normalize anything,” Mattis said. “Right now I’ve got a lot of faith in the American people to draw their own conclusions.”

Oh, Jim, don’t you know the American people are a bunch of dumb sheep who must be lectured by the elites in New York and Washington? Don’t you know that Barack Obama is a saint whose only critics are white supremacists? Don’t you know that?

Ah, it’s fun when the liberal media doesn’t get what they want. They get quite tantrum-y.

  1. Andrea Mitchell and the likes of Chuck Todd and others are all a part of the failed fake news media. Things haven’t worked out the way they planned it and by them choosing Hillary and the blood sucking Democrats they doomed themselves. Trump has been the most successful and truthful of all the presidents in keeping his promises. Only outdone when the impossible liberals refused to vote for anything. The climate changers, the gun grabbers…all failed hoax backing infidels. Lying through their mouths at every possible moment. The look of frustration when their plans fail is comical on their faces. Their efforts are horrifying to conservatives and patriots across the nation. The foreign governments are hailing Trump except our enemies who are still sucking up the liberals for global dominance.

  2. andrea mitchell, chuck todd, jim acosta, ALL MSNBC lemmings and CNN lemmings ARE THE CAUSE OF CLIMATE CHANGE BECAUSE OF THEIR HOT AIR! failed ‘whatever they are’ … ‘aware, informed and thinking’ AMERICANS are on to this crap. you’ll see …

  3. The PMS in PMSNBC is courtesy of Andrea… I wish I could find the note as to who the democrat senator she is married to, so I could tie them in, pointing out the leftist ‘party line’ that she espouses. Kinda like the disgraced Comey married to an avid HRC fan and father to two more, being a ‘moderate’ and not a never-Trumper. 3 years and millions of taxpayer’s dollars later he admits to having a ‘nothing burger’ when he knew he had it all along…

  4. Andrea Mitchell has no class. Jim Mattis is nothing but a class act. Take a lesson or Andrea you will hurtle your suspect reputation down the rat hole of AOC, the Squad, the Hollywood elites and those many progressive, socialist, communist left-leaning Democrats who care only about their opinions and ignore the facts.

  5. This woman is part of the problem and needs a Brain enima! she is NOT using the brains she may have so…Col Mattis has itright, he did what most Military members would do! They do NOT do what this Jackass wanted mattis to do, and that was to disparage and talk bad about Mr. Trump! A.M. Is just a PLAIN Jackass! She has NO respect!

  6. So what is more important: a Day freeking Care center, the the Border security! Doesn’t take an IDIOT to figure that one, unless you are a self centered individual! Stay home and take care of the children instead of putting that before National security! This was NOT a problem years before! OH and by the way 1 Tim 5:14 KJV “STILL applies and is still in effect! …women marry, bear children, “GUIDE’ the house…Just because someone thinks otherwise has NO bearing on the matter!

  7. Mitchell is irrelevant. Her thoughts do not matter hardly at all. If she ever had journalistic integrity, she no longer does. Let’s just ignore her and do ourselves a big favor.

  8. (MyLondon) – Medicines not stored properly spoils soon. That’s why they demand grand storage facility. Particularly drugs like buy viagra from canada with a prescription, which are reach-me-down as a replacement for such a unusual purpose, requirement more great storage. Storage ensures safeness and certainty also. Compartment temperature is apropos for this drug. A temperature of close to 15 to 30 somewhat celsius is perfect. Do not stow away it in any extreme temperature. It purposefulness lawful spoil. a should be enclosing in an air stretched container and place that container in some unruffled and trash free place.

  9. Thanks for the strategies presented. One thing I should also believe is always that credit cards giving a 0 interest often entice consumers in zero rate of interest, instant acceptance and easy online balance transfers, however beware of the top factor that may void your own 0 easy streets annual percentage rate and also throw you out into the bad house in no time. viagra.
