Bob Woodward’s parents should’ve taught him you never grab a big dog by its tail because you will get bitten. That is what happened to Bob Woodward of Watergate fame. But has ever since made false accusations against General Mattis.
That is something no snowflake should ever do. Mattis, who is the Secretary of Defense, has never been a shrinking violet and always says what he means. Which will immediately make you doubt Woodward’s claims that Mattis made statements in private against President Trump. It’s not his style as the following Mattis quote proves.
‘I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you f*ck with me, I’ll k*ll you all.’
According to Woodward: Defense Secretary James Mattis fired back on Tuesday, shooting down the alleged statements attributed to him in Bob Woodward’s new book about the Trump White House.
“We’re doing this in order to prevent World War III,” an “exasperated” Mattis supposedly told the president when asked why the United States was spending money to keep a presence in South Korea, according to an excerpt from “Fear,” published Tuesday by The Washington Post.
After that meeting, Woodward writes, “Mattis was particularly exasperated and alarmed, telling close associates that the president acted like — and had the understanding of — ‘a fifth- or sixth-grader.’”
Woodward also wrote that Mattis said, “No, Mr. President, I think you’ve got it reversed,” after President Trump allegedly called the late Senator John McCain a coward.
Mattis’ reply starts out “The contemptuous words about the PResident attributed to me in Woodward’s book were never uttered by or in my presence. While I generally enjoy reading fiction, this is a uniquely Washington brand of literature, and his anonymous sources do not lend credibility”

People are lining up to dispute what Woodward wrote, attributed to anonymous third party information. He is now in the same class as Omarosa Manigault.
