My sympathy is offered to Senators Wyden and Merkley that they and their other 15 neo-Marxist associates were on the losing end of the Senate vote to waive the seven-year civilian requirement for Gen. Mattis. Just key in “17 senators that voted against Mattis waiver” and you’ll have the whole list of seventeen.
I can only assume that they would have preferred perhaps Valery Jarret or even Barack (insane) Obama as Secretary of Defense. Note that these seventeen are the anchor Senators that want academia to run the country rather than honorable, experienced citizens. If any of Trump’s appointees had suckled to these Senator’s posteriors the way Wyden and Merkley suckled to Obama’s, they’d have been a shoo-in.
When the swamp begins to be drained, note which Alligators and Congressional leeches are the first to be exposed.
