    I thought after Trump nominated Mattis for defense Secretary, he said he would let Mattis take care of these type of issues and even let the warrior monk override him?

    He's increasingly frustrated with everything. Maybe he shouldn't have taken the job.

    Those quotes are interesting. The US Military has perhaps the finest NCOs in the world - they're certainly worth listening to - so Trump has a point. Yet, that doesn't preclude keeping Nicholson...

    Well here's news for trump.

    Being commander in chief if he wants him fired all he has to do is fire him.

    He rather have others do the dirty work. You would think all that pretend reality show firing would have got him comfortable with doing the act himself face to face. But apparently not. Instead he sends out tweets or notes with his bodyguard. Such a coward.
