Slate did an article that SecDef Mattis rebuked President Trump, telling the troops that the President is failing them. The article was done by Fred Kaplan who never served a day in the military but considers himself an expert on military strategy as he’s apparently done several books on the subject.
Around the same time, a recent video emerged on Facebook of Secretary of Defense James Mattis telling a small group of American troops, “You’re a great example of our country right now.” He went on, “Our country, right now, it’s got problems that we don’t have in the military. You just hold the line until our country gets back to understanding and respecting each other and showing it.”
Could someone tell me how that statement is a rebuke of President Trump? If anything, it would be a rebuke of Obama because this crap taking place started under him.
Guys like Kaplan write these headlines and people believe them without even reading the article or contemplating what the article actually said. That’s why they’re Fake News.
