General Mattis shoots down NBC nuke story!

General Mattis released what’s being called a ‘rare’ statement a few moments ago, shooting down NBC’s nuke story from this morning:

He didn’t just say it’s false, he called it irresponsible.

Trump also commented on it again, saying he never called for an increase in our nukes:

I don’t think I’ve ever seen Trump more adamant about a story being false than this one.

Put that with the fact that Mattis is also shooting it down now, and there are few more credible than Mattis in the Trump administration. If Mattis calls it fake news – and he would know – that’s enough for me.

As a side note, this is how you handle Fake News. You don’t have to threaten to revoke the ‘license’ of a news organization.
