House and Senate Republicans heard from Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis this morning at the GOP retreat in West Virginia:

And he did not disappoint. Here are 3 KICK ASS quotes from the gathering.

No. 1. Mattis gave Secretary of State Rex Tillerson a new nickname: “Saint Rex of Texas”

No. 2. Mattis’ message to our enemies: “Take us on and it will be your worst day and your longest day.”

No. 3. “I need to make the military more lethal. Some people think I’m supposed to be an equal opportunity employer.”

And that’s why we love this guy!
