  1. “Measured” and “factual” are two things the tantrum throwing, lying clown of a president has never been.

    Trump is never measured, factual, or decisive – he’s not even capable of beating a 7th grader at a spelling bee.

    • @Mck2019 you’re right. Clearly trump and his supporters are very level headed, as seen by your ALL CAPS OUTBURST

    • No I would really love to see that. I swear to God

    • GramaJ Catherder
      Someone should really investigate whether Trump even finished high school, much less college. I don’t think he finished either.

    • Too funny!! He’s absolutely deranged and insane!! When is he ever composed, or factual! The absolute lies are a disgrace and this country should be embarrassed and disgusted with what this human being and his thugs are putting this country in high danger!

    • @Mck2019 Writing in all caps doesnt make it true troglodyte…..

  3. Republicans dug their own grave supporting this traitor.

  4. Trump lies and lies and more lies , let him melt down all he wants , let him burn down .

  5. The “most overrated general” says the draft dodger.

  6. Trump calls Mattis overrated, this coming from a draft dodger.

  7. Never liked donnie as a civilian, before he became President. He is dumber than a sack of dirt.

    • @Neil The economy is doing so well while we shove money into corporate farms to pay for the tariff war backlash and regular farmers lose their jobs?

      And what specific jobs are you seeing “hiring” signs, just because you see mcdonalds hiring dont mean the economy is in a golden age.

    • @Neil He’s not really a Billionaire and thank you Obama for handing over a great economy to Spanky.

    • Neil He’s not responsible for the economy .He’s been riding on what Obama left him .And the economy is not as good as you say. He’s been destroying Obamas legacy. With tariffs. Prices are rising on everything. But wages stay the same. The economy SUCKS. Stupid.

    • Neil The economy is not booming. Prices are rising on everything. Most of the jobs are part time. Nothing has changed job wise. And trump is not responsible for this economy. He’s been riding on what Obama left him. And now he’s destroyed that.

    • Neil trump is also filling his own pockets. Now we pay more for items thanks to trump tariffs. Wake up stupid.

  8. DJT is sounding more like a deranged psychopath.

    Trump is the Most Underrated Liar.

    Who is this Draft Dodging fool to Call General Mattis Overrated.

    • Mr bonespurs experiences shame and guilt when he’s around war heros

    • Great comment about Cadet Bonespurs. Trump’s behavior parallels that of most right wingers I meet; they are all about supporting the troops and thanking us for our service *until* they find out you aren’t a MAGAt, then they start denigrating, undermining and slandering you, especially if you have an opinion that hurts their pussyassbitch feelers.

    • @Mainely I salute you sir for your true love of country. – DISABLED VETERAN

    Donald “Cadet Bonespurs” Trump isn’t fit to polish General Mattis’ boots.

  11. Shame on the WhiteHouse staff who enable this outrageously incompetent man

  12. Talk about overrated. He’s a legend in his own mind.

    Trump ‘The Worlds most overrated Russian’

  14. Spoken like thr draft dodging coward he is.

  15. “The President was measured, factual, and decisive…”

    Gee. Now how do you suppose everyone knows that’s a lie?

  16. Oh that’s funny the world’s biggest draft dodger is insulting a prominent general!

    • silvério rebelo | October 17, 2019 at 11:54 AM | Reply

      the will of being a submissive minion of the Zionist elite and their deep state machinations is very strong. In Mathis and…well, in ‘cronus’, isn’t it?

    • @silvério rebelo< Do you get paid by the word?! Because that's a lot of bullshit that you just spewed out, and no I am not going to bother with trying to make sense out of it. F-OFF troll!

    Says the coward who ducked the military and disrespected a decorated veteran

    • arroyo5born 007 That’s true. Trump is a draft dodging coward.

    • Trump said he only like soldiers who were not captured. In his childish petty squabbles with J.Mc but that statement spat in the face of thousands of POWs. But his Cult nutty base don’t seem to mind

  18. Trump eventually turns on everyone including a General like Mattis.

    • The smart ones figure it out eventually but I think the average Fox propaganda addict will go to their grave presuming his hatred, betrayal, scorn and cynical lying to them are not real, they’ll blame it on something else.

    • Exactly. A few are already jumping ship before it’s too late for them. In a few years the people who sided Trump will be doomed and the ones who stood against him at the right moment will be seen as heroes.

    • 845835ab That includes the United States as we know it,

    • He’s a narsicist thin skinned little beeeeaaaach

  19. “The world’s most overrated General.. ”

    And YOU gave him a job in your administration? That says a lot more about you than it does him.

  20. “The President suggested there were communists in Syria…” Why would that bother him? His best friend used to be a communist.
