Long overdue, and good for him. Mattis is another one, like Nikki Haley, who may escape the hapless Trump administration with an intact measure of integrity and dignity. You can’t work for a con man and a grifter, someone who doesn’t read or think deeply and who acts impulsively on outdated and misguided instincts, without eventually getting caught up in the muck and the incompetence.
Mattis’ departure is not so good for the country. Both CNN and MSNBC were in hair on fire mode. Quite rightly, I’d say.
No wonder Trump’s parents sent him to military school. He’s like living with a tornado. Pretty tiresome, actually.
