On Thursday night in New York City at the Alfred E. Smith dinner former Defense Secretary James Mattis had some things to get off his chest.
Comedic Legend Martin Short warmed the crowed up before brining Mathis to the podium. “According to the president he’s the most overrated general. I think he’s an American hero.”
James Mathis received a standing ovation while stepping to the dais, showing how beloved the former Defense Secretary really is.
“I’m not just an overrated general. I’m the world’s greatest overrated general. I’m honored to be called that by Donald Trump, because he also called Meryl Streep an overrated actor. So I guess I’m the Meryl Streep of generals.”
During a meeting with lawmakers about the situation in Syria President Donald Trump stated Mathis was “The world’s most overrated general.”
In August Mathis said in an interview his silence about Trump was “not going to be forever.”
