WATCH: Reporter Faces BRUTAL WRATH of Mattis After Asking If He Read Anti-Trump Book

Defense Secretary James “Mad Dog” Mattis is a lot like the NFL’s New England Patriots’ Head Coach Bill Belichick during a post-game press conference. He answers questions extremely directly and if you ask a question that is either not relevant to the press conference or condescending in any way, god help you.

The Independent Journal Review just reported on the epic response Mattis gave to a reporter who asked him about the new book “Fire and Fury” by Michael Wolff. Needless to say, General Mattis was neither entertained nor amicable with his response.
