Mattis Allegedly Said He Would ‘Rather Swallow Acid’ Than Watch Trump Military Parade
By Charlie NashOct 23rd, 2019, 2:26 pm

Former Defense Secretary James Mattis allegedly said he’d “rather swallow acid” than watch President Donald Trump’s military parade, according to a new book by his former communications director.

The claim was made by retired U.S. Navy Commander Guy Snodgrass, who served as Mattis’ communications director and speechwriter between 2017 and 2018, in his book Holding the Line: Inside Trump’s Pentagon With Secretary Mattis, which is set to be released next week.

According to the Washington Post, which obtained a copy of the book prior to publication, “Mattis said wryly that he’d ‘rather swallow acid’ than see the multimillion-dollar military parade that Trump wanted.”

The book also claims that Mattis “used a December disagreement with President Trump over a military withdrawal from Syria as a ‘pretext to announce a decision that he had made months before to cut his losses and move on,'” according to the Post, and that Mattis felt “iced out” by the Trump administration.

On the topic of President Trump’s feud with Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Snodgrass wrote that Trump tried to “screw” Bezos by stopping Amazon from bidding on a $10 billion Pentagon “cloud networking contract,” however Mattis shut the idea down, reportedly declaring, “We’re not going to do that… This will be done by the book, both legally and ethically.”

Trump tried to "screw" Bezos by preventing him from bidding on a government contract. 

More impeachable conduct?   Of course.

Why not. You have tried everything else. BTW. Maybe we should get rid of AOC since she did the same thing

If she did, then yes, bust her.  But if this is just a case of deflection, nice try.

The AOC - Amazon thing and what Mattis is implying here are not remotely comparable.   Do Trumpsters care?     Who are we kidding?

Do you care?

Not really.

What else is new. If it is anti Trump, and unsubstantiated you are on it.

Jesus John, have you no compassion?.........The dead body of the Ukraine impeachment process isn't even cold yet.  The Russian impeachment is starting to stink form rot......but at least allow Ukraine to lie in peace  for a day before you move on to number 51....in why trump needs to be impeached now.

So is Bezo the next shiny object?

No, not really. A president has a lot of powers, perks, and privileges that you seem to be unaware of.

A dumb comment by Mattis, he knows he will not watch the parade no matter what. He is nothing more than an attention whore who just wants to get media attention.

Mattis needs to quit holding back, spit it all out and fess up. He was a witness to Trump issuing multiple illegal orders. What Trump is cold ass busted doing is exactly the worst high crime our founders imagined. Therefore Trump must forthwith be impeached, convicted and removed from office. If Mike Pence is implicated also then Nancy Pelosi can finish out Trump's term...
