“Best response ever!”
Secretary of Defense James Mattis showed a bit of what led to his “Mad Dog” moniker during a CBS News interview that aired on “Face the Nation” Sunday.
After discussing a string of threats facing the United States, host John Dickerson asked the former Marine Corps general what kept him awake at night.
“Nothing,” Mattis replied without hesitating so much as a second. “I keep other people awake at night.”

Finally, The Washington Free Beacon was so impressed its editors put together what they called a “BeastMode” video — complete with complementary footage and appropriate sound effects.
