#1 "Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis didn’t favorably receive former Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s repeated requests to get the retired Marine Corps general to appear on numerous talk shows, according to an excerpt from Bob Woodward’s upcoming book, “Fear: Trump in the White House.”

According to one passage in the book, an exasperated Mattis, having answered “no” a number of times already, lashed out at Spicer, who is an officer in the Navy Reserve.

“Sean, I’ve killed people for a living,” the secretary of defense said. “If you call me again, I’m going to f–king send you to Afghanistan. Are we clear?”


Heh. So, maybe there is some truth in the flotsam, just a bit so as to give it provenance.

#3 The book's publisher, Simon & Schuster, is a subsidiary of CBS. You should have seen CBS News anchor Jeff Glor on Tuesday hawking this book for all he was worth for at least the first 10 minutes of the so-called news broadcast. It's one thing for CBS to advertise a book and it's quite another to call that advertisement news. It isn't news. It's anti-Trump, globalist and socialist propaganda and crass commercialism. CBS has abandoned all pretense of being a reliable source of news.

#4 Remember the hysteria in the MSM over Wolff's book? Didn't last long. Oomooroosa's book fell out of the news even quicker. I think I see a trend approaching...
