Nah. But it happened, though no one fainted over it as far as I know, unlike the fainting spells many on the left had when Mattis left.


...

Obama’s first secretary of defense, Robert Gates, resigned without incident in 2011, but would later criticize Obama’s role as commander in chief in his memoir published a few years later. It revealed a troubled relationship between Obama and the Pentagon:

...

In 2013, Obama’s second secretary of defense, Leon Panetta, resigned after less than two years on the job over frustrations with Obama. Panetta also wrote a memoir revealing disturbing details about his time in the Obama administration, and told of Obama’s repeated decisions to ignore his advice, citing specifically “the withdrawal of all troops from Iraq in 2011, the failure to intervene in Syria’s civil war by arming rebels and the abrupt reversal of Mr. Obama’s decision to strike Syria in retaliation for using chemical weapons on civilians.”

In 2014, shortly after the midterm elections that saw Republicans take control of the U.S. Senate, Barack Obama fired Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel over, you guessed it, policy and strategy disagreements. Hagel said in an interview a year later that the Obama White House tried to “destroy” him and that they had no strategy for fixing Syria.

More disturbing than anything that has come out thus far regarding Mattis’s resignation is that Obama’s fiercest critics of his foreign policy and military strategy have been his secretaries of defense. In April 2016, all three of Obama’s former secretaries of defense at the time—Gates, Panetta, and Hagel—blasted Obama in interviews for a Fox News special called “Rising Threats, Shrinking Military.”

I remember the opposite primarily from the crowd of crazed alt-right wingers who would also faint over Obama being gay and Michelle a transvestite.

Good times... good times. I fondly remember having a decent man as president.

This will cost Obama votes in the next election.
But it changes nothing as far as the idiot in the white house.

Obama supporters keep making the same mistakes. They find fault with Trump for something their own rock star, Obama, did.

I will tell you one thing for sure --- Trump has never weaponized his FBI to go after a Democrat candidate for President, and used a phony Dossier to get a FISA warrant to investigate the Democrat candidate. No, that was Obama, and what he did was despicable.
