James ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis pens tawdry tirade against President Trump

The ‘resistance’ rhetoric of the radical left seems to be spreading this week, as one of the military’s most well-respected leaders has opened up about his own opposition to the Trump administration.

James Mattis, former Secretary of Defense under President Trump, did not make a big to-do when he resigned from the administration back in January.  Instead, “Mad Dog” simply slipped away quietly, presumably for whatever personal reasons may have been arising in his life.

This wasn’t terribly uncommon in the Trump administration either, with the President’s cabinet and inner circle often shifting and swaying in an attempt to create the most versatile and vivacious posse possible.

Now, however, more than six months after Mattis’ departure, “Mad Dog” has a message for Trump and his allies.

“Using every skill I had learned during my decades as a Marine, I did as well as I could for as long as I could,” Mattis wrote in an essay for the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday. “When my concrete solutions and strategic advice, especially keeping faith with our allies, no longer resonated, it was time to resign, despite the limitless joy I felt serving alongside our troops in defense of our Constitution.”

Mattis went on to lament the current trending toward tribalism in American politics.

“Unlike in the past, where we were unified and drew in allies, currently our own commons seems to be breaking apart,” Mattis wrote.

He also warned about what he called “political fratricide” in the nation’s capital.

“What concerns me most as a military man is not our external adversaries,” he wrote. “It is our internal divisiveness. We are dividing into hostile tribes cheering against each other, fueled by emotion and a mutual disdain that jeopardizes our future, instead of rediscovering our common ground and finding solutions.

The well-liked military leader was hesitant to take the Defense Secretary job from the get-go, openly stating his desire to stay away from Washington DC prior to accepting the President’s invitation.
