For all of you Democrats saying that #GeneralMattis should “do more than make jokes”, I’d like to point out a few things:

1) He’s a Republican. Interesting that you expect more from their people, than our own.

2) How long did it take our own party reps to speak out?
3) Nancy Pelosi only recently called for an #ImpeachmentInquiry — even though Trump has done plenty to be impeached for, from the very beginning.
See: Mueller Report

4) The military has a long history of its leaders staying out of political issues. Be happy he’s saying anything.
5) Just a reminder: General Mattis resigned in protest, and his resignation letter spoke volumes, without crossing that military/politics boundary.

6) It’s highly irregular for a general to oppose a president. Especially one from his own party.
So before we go attacking General Mattis for “not doing enough”, let’s look at what he has done to stand up to Trump, and be thankful.

He’s done more than most— even more than some from our own party.

Thank you, #GeneralMattis.

Welcome to the #Resistance, sir.
