Former Defense Secretary Gen. James Mattis roasts Donald Trump at the Al Smith Dinner

"I'm not just an overrated general. Im the worlds greatest overrated general," joked Mattis, who received a standing ovation as he stepped to the dais. "I'm honored to be called that by Donald Trump, because he also called Meryl Streep an overrated actor. So I guess Im the Meryl Streep of generals."


"I earned my spurs on the battlefield; Donald Trump earned his spurs in a letter from a doctor," Mattis said.


I tried to bring some peace and order to the places with no organized government, chaotic and warring factions, irrational fears, and toxic hatred. It was hard work, but it wasnt until I started working in Washington, D.C., that I realized how easy I had it overseas in the combat zone.


Its been a year since Ive left the administration, the recovery process is going well," he joked. "The counselor says Ill graduate soon. A year according to White House time is about 9,000 hours of executive time or 1,800 holes of golf."

3. Fuck Matt is. He could have spoke up when he was in with the corruption

but he kept his mouth shut, afraid to piss off the administration. So imo he deserves nothing.

4. +1. Even now, he could be giving serious speeches about why Trump is unfit to lead

rather than tossing off one-liners.
