Jim Mattis Upon Meeting John Bolton: I Wanted to Meet the Devil
General Jim Mattis is easily Donald's Trump best hire. It's not even up for debate (see General James Mattis Delivers ISIS a Personal Message of Destruction… and Mad Dog Mattis Praises Sailors for not Being ‘Pu**ies on the Sidelines.’ Yes, Really). Even NeverTrumpers will admit Mattis is the only thing Trump has done that they don't hate.
Mattis can kill you eight ways before you hit the ground. Apparently, he's got jokes too. Take a look at his icebreaker upon meeting John Bolton:
"I heard you're actually the devil incarnate and I wanted to meet you," Mattis said in an off-microphone exchange that was captured upon Bolton's arrival at the Pentagon.
Bolton laughed and the two men entered the building.
Speaking publicly for the first time about the move to name Bolton, Mattis said Tuesday that he looked forward to working with the former UN ambassador and that he hoped the two men held "different world views" to avoid "group think."
"I'll tell you right up front, it's going to be a partnership, we are going to go forward," Mattis told reporters at the Pentagon.
A grizzled badass warrior monk and a world-class teller of jokes. Is there anything the Mad Dog can't do?
Naturally, leftists are in a tizzy over the comical exchange.
Hahahaha. Funny. BRB -- going to build a fallout shelter. https://t.co/YtbKDwGNeU— Joshua Holland 🔥 (@Joshua Holland 🔥)1522346782.0

Well, they obviously don't speak sarcasm. The Mad Dog isn't a crypto-Satanist with a pentagram tattoo on his chest. He's mocking Bolton's detractors who call him the spawn of Lucifer.
Mattis and Bolton have to work together. They're going to disagree with one another on certain matters. Something Mattis himself points out and hopes will happen. Which makes forging a friendship all the more important.
Leftists would realize that if they'd remove the three-foot sticks from their rectums and develop a sense of humor. Instead of squealing "the end is near" like a crazy-person with a picket sign on the street corner.
Speaking of evil, I'm sure there is at least one thing Bolton and Mattis agree on...
