As we all know by now, yesterday Trump referred to General James Mattis as “the most overrated general I’ve ever met.”
Mattis decided to respond. It was beautiful.
“I’m not just an overrated general. I’m the most overrated general,” Mattis says.
“I’m honored to be considered that by Donald Trump because he also called Meryl Streep an overrated actress. So I guess I’m the Meryl Streep of generals, and frankly that sounds pretty good to me.”
“I earned my spurs on the battlefield… and Donald Trump earned his in a letter from a doctor.”
