    Just more ignorant rumors from the Left.

    Mattis denied that he was considering leaving. "I'm thinking about doing my job each day," he said, smiling. He said he wouldn't take reports of his impending departure "seriously at all."

    "It's like most of these kind of things in this town. Somebody cooks up a headline. They then call to a normally chatty class of people. They find a couple of other things to put in. They add the rumor. Somebody on the other coast starts writing the same thing. Next thing you know you got a story," Mattis said.

    "It'll die down, just like how many times [have] we been through this now just since I've been here?" he added. "It'll die down soon, and the people who started the rumor will be allowed to write the next rumor too. Just the way the town is. Keep a sense of humor about it."

    When asked if he never thought about leaving, Mattis offered some wit as he walked away.

    "Of course I don't think about leaving. I love it here. I'm thinking about retiring here, getting a nice little place down on the Potomac," he said, gesturing toward the river, which is not far from the Pentagon.

    More @ 'I love it here': Mattis cracked a few jokes about rumors he could soon be out at the Pentagon

    America needs Mattis more than ever as he is keeping Donald Dumbass' more bizarre instincts at bay.

    Yes, Mattis say what you need to. Just stay in Trump's good graces and flatter his fat ass. Just don't leave and leave this nation a prisoner to Trump's utter insanity.

    What America needs is to retire all who work in the Pentagon and turn it into an affordable housing complex.

    I would enjoy it there as well. Who wouldn’t love to run a department with huge sums of money with weak financial oversight?

    Due to President Trump and Secretary Mattis, the money types in the Pentagon are going nuts trying to make sense of DOD spending and programs. It won't be changed overnight But, according to a thread I just posted, they are uncovering BILLIONS in waste and mismanagement.

    Indeed. They don't receive tremendous amounts of taxpayers dollars. Also, I think they can at least preform an audit on itself.
