Defense Secretary James “Mad Dog” Mattis was trying to hold a press conference recently when a smug liberal reporter decided to try and hijack the proceedings. Unfortunately for her, however, it didn’t take long for her to learn the hard way why his nickname is “Mad Dog.”
Mad World News reported that Mattis made an impromptu visit last week to the press area of the Pentagon to talk to reporters. It was then that one cocky reporter brought up President Donald Trump’s tweet to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, in which the president said his nuclear button is “bigger” and “much more powerful.”
“Just staying on – going back to North Korea, the tweet from President Trump this week about him bragging about the size of his nuclear button, was that concerning to you or what was your reaction to that?” the reporter asked Mattis, clearly trying to bash Trump.
Mattis was able to stay calm, since he has dealt with far tougher adversaries than this entitled reporter in the past.
“My job as the secretary of defense is to make certain that we have forces ready to defend this country,” he explained.
“But with all due respect Mr. Secretary…” she interjected, before Mattis immediately shut her down.
“That always preludes something that is perhaps less than due respect from you, Barbara,” Mattis said.
We’re glad to see that Mattis has had enough of the anti-Trump media and that he’s not afraid to call them out on their nonsense!
It turns out that Mattis earned his nickname of “Mad Dog” after he made several comments which struck fear into the hearts of the fragile snowflakes in the liberal media. He explained this to the nation during his Senate confirmation hearing.
“That nickname was given to me by the press, and some of you may have experienced similar occasions with the press where perhaps they didn’t get it quite right,” Mattis said during his testimony.
He was given this nickname after making comments like, “be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet” and “a good soldier follows orders, but a true warrior wears his enemy’s skin like a poncho.”
Former Defense Secretary William Cohen, however, thinks Mattis deserves a different nickname.
“I want to say he has the nickname of ‘Mad Dog’ — it’s a misnomer. It should be ‘Braveheart’ because what really characterizes Jim Mattis is his courage,” Cohen remarked at the Senate confirmation hearing. “Men and women in all services love this man.”
