Reporter Gets on Wrong Side of Mattis--

Defense Secretary James “Mad Dog” Mattis has become well-known for his short, no-nonsense answers to seemingly ridiculous questions from reporters.
Though one would certainly not expect it, given the dry delivery and straight-faced manner with which Mattis deals with journalists, he is actually quite funny as well.
The Independent Journal Review just reported on the hilariously cutting answer Mattis gave to a reporter who asked him about the absurd new book “Fire and Fury” by author Michael Wolff about President Donald Trump’s White House that has the liberal media in an uproar.

Asked if he had read the anti-Trump book in which he is mentioned, Mattis replied, “No, I’m a little busy, these days, actually doing my job, you know?”
The reporter pressed and stated, “It’s a quick read. I’m already halfway through it.”

Mattis shot back to laughter from the crowd of reporters, “Yes, but you’re one of those literate intellectuals.”
According to a Defense Department transcript of Mattis’ media availability on Friday, the secretary added that he purposefully doesn’t read books in which he is mentioned.

I'd have said if he's half-way through it, it means he's a "half-wit"! Wink
