The House of Representatives on Friday voted to approve a waiver for Gen. James Mattis to serve as Secretary of Defense for President-elect Donald J. Trump. General James ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis, 66, as he is known, is a modern-day George Patton and a perfect attitudinal fit for the non-politically correct businessman from New York.

The Afghanistan and Iraq War veteran commanded needed a waiver due to Pentagon rules prohibiting who have served on active duty within the prior seven years from serving in civilian.

Following the first confirmation hearing on Thursday, the Senate committee voted in favor of the waiver and he is expected to easily be confirmed. Gen. Mattis
