‘Mad Dog’ Mattis sleeps well, keeps others awake

WASHINGTON – Watch out for the “Mad Dog” when the sun goes down.

That was the message Sunday from Defence Secretary Jim Mattis, whose nickname was used by President Donald Trump on Twitter.

The Pentagon chief is a hardened, tough-talking retired Marine Corps general, who was charged with a number of the most challenging commands in the army.

So what can you expect him to say when he was asked, “What keeps you awake at night?”

Maybe even a rocket launch of North Korea? An attack by Islamic State militants? An incident in the South china Sea?

“Nothing,” he tells CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

“I keep other people awake at night.”
