President Trump seems to be on the receiving end of a great deal of criticism this week, what with an impeachment battle raging and a number of media outlets attempting to bury him under Mick Mulvaney’s words.
Trump has weathered such storms before. From the very onset of his presidency he has been thoroughly attacked by the Washington establishment who fears the change that he is bringing to The Beltway.
Now, a former White House adviser is taking his own set of pot-shots at the President.
“I earned my spurs on the battlefield … Donald Trump earned his spurs in a letter from a doctor,” Mattis joked at one point, in a reference to the medical deferment for bone spurs that kept Mr. Trump from serving in the military during the Vietnam War.
At another point, Mattis responded to reports that Mr. Trump called him “the world’s most overrated general” during a meeting with Democrats earlier this week. Mattis joked that he felt like he had “achieved greatness,” because he was “not just an overrated general, I am the greatest, the world’s most overrated.”
Mattie would go on to insinuate that he is, in fact, the “Meryl Streep” of generals, given that Donald Trump has previously insisted that she is an “overrated actress”.
