A Journalist Asked Mad Dog Mattis What Keeps Him Up At Night. His Answer…..AWESOME!

When you have someone that is bestowed the title of Secretary of Defense, you want them to be willing to do whatever it takes to defend our great country.

You don’t want some of the people that had gotten appointed by Obama in charge of keeping us safe, because they didn’t exactly do a stellar job of that. I never had the opportunity to meet General Mattis, but he is not someone that I would want to upset.

To put it bluntly, if I made him mad in a DREAM I would wake up and immediately apologize. Want to know one of the fundamental differences between the Obama administration and the Trump administration? Secretary of Defense and retired General James Mattis.

Mattie appeared on ‘Face the Nation’ today in an interview with host John Dickerson. Dickerson then asked a fairly silly question, and got back one heck of an answer. Dickerson asked, “What keeps you awake at night?”

Mattis responded without a second thought. “Nothing. I keep other people awake at night.” Bam!

 The four-star general previously was the head of U.S. Central Command and served 44 years in the Marine Corps, before retiring in 2013. Mattis, who earned the nickname ‘Mad Dog’, is known for his quotable sayings.

Here are a few, culled by The Daily Caller: “When you men get home and face an anti-war protester, look at him in the eyes and shake his hand. Then, wink at his girlfriend because she knows she’s dating a pussy,” Mattis once said.

“I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes. If you fuck with me, I’ll kill you all,” Mattis told Iraqi leaders during the 2003 invasion.


“Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet,” Mattis was known to tell Marines under his command during the Iraq war.
