‘He earned his spurs from a doctor’: Gen James Mattis mocks Donald Trump


I do stand before you as was
noted here really having achieved greatness. I mean I’m not just
an overrated general, I am the greatest, the world’s most overrated.
So I would just tell you too that 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. [Laughter] And frankly that sounds
pretty good to me. And you do have to admit
that between me and Meryl, at least we’ve had some victories.
And some of you were kind in the reception and asked me
you know, if this bothered me to have been raided this way,
based on what Donald Trump said. Of course not, I’d earn my spurs
on a battlefield, Martin, as you pointed out. Donald Trump earned his spurs
in a letter from a doctor. [Laughter]
Not in the least bit put out by it. And I think the only person
in the military that Mr. Trump doesn’t think is overrated
is who you pointed out, Martin. That’s Colonel Sanders.

  1. This is going to go viral, trump must be cussing like a fish wife! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’–

  2. you can only be disrespected if you value the opinion of the person saying it. Needless to say, nobody respects trump or anything the family says, so whatever is said is utter garbage. Worthless opinions from worthless people.

  3. TRUMPETO imbecilo dreaming to make his Monarchy in US…i am afraid he can make it..to many Americans are too naive and primitive..Religion is not American Freedom..it is American Grave!!

  4. โ€˜Iโ€™ve killed people for a living. If you call me again, Iโ€™m going to f–king send you to Afghanistanโ€™

  5. Trump is a war hero. He dodged many bullets. . . . err. . . draft. He earned his spurs in the war. . .err. . . bone spurs from the doctor. lmao๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  6. This military genius has still not addressed Army Lt. General Daniel P. Bolger's 2014 book entitled Why we lost: A General's inside account of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars that discusses what happened while Mattis commanded Marines in the Middle East.

  7. Trump will try to get even by stripping Mattis of his four stars, his medals, and his lifetime pension. What else has he got? Oh right, he can still go after Mattis's wife, not realizing that Mattis is a bachelor.

  8. Love the joke, but you don't have spurs either, Sir. All due respect, but that's a Cavalry award for combat, Sir. Never in history has an Marine "earned" his Spurs. Sir. Unless attached to an Cavalry Unit. Sir. With all due respect. Sir.

  9. Fun jokes. Want to hear one? Whatโ€™s sad, disloyal, and doing parlor tricks for a few laughs? Answer: retired generals.

  10. General Mattis for President. He is erudite, articulate, and a deep strategic thinker. Everything Trump isnโ€™t.
    MATTIS 2020!!!
    Semper Fidelis

  11. Its funny because trump hates military action and the guardian has been calling for this for years, now they mock him for it.

  12. James Mattis "two thumbs up"!

    Donald Trump "If he gets re-elected, that is a sign, how dumb the average human being is"

  13. Yes_ Colonel Sanders. Trumps favourite military leader. Buckets of experience and certainly no chicken when it came to combat.

  14. That great speech was probably to complicated for Trump to understand. But it was great, Donald. It made you look like the petty coward that you are.

  15. An upset general that America will not be in a war in the middle east much longer. I swear these guys should move there if they love it so much.

  16. Iโ€™m a little disappointed in Gen. Mattis. I thought once an officer and a gentleman always. My dad was. I think a retired Gen. should respect the office of the president even if you donโ€™t respect the president serving. He knew who he was when he took the job. Why complain now.
