    Hi from elsewhere in the world…. so is the Pentagon able to 25th him or is that mutiny… Because y'know this is a very decisive play by the president … is this first crack in the foundation a fixable crack or is it going to be the beginning of the end of rule by constitutional law. Let this crack run and that's how it probably ends.

    Jesus wept.

    4:16 Gallagher questioning an Admiral on TV looks like insubordination and against the UCMJ. If he's brought up on charges for this will Trump intervene?

  4. Gary Mcdermott says:

    Why canโ€™t they wait till December next year when dickhead is no longer president.

  5. Thomas Hay says:

    Trump has asked Gallagher to appear with him on stage. Gallagher got in trouble once for appearing with a corpse in a photo now he appears with another corpse , trump…..

    Will the "tremendous guys from My Lai" get the MoH next? ๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿคฎ๐Ÿคฎ

  7. richard lawton says:

    Trump has just opened the door in this as he has before made it perfectly clear that respect for commands following the law be it constitutional law public law congressional law and military law is something not to be worried about or bothered with. Moreover if he keeps this up and even somehow manages to never leave the Oval Office as he often goes into claiming he plans to never leave the future command structure of the Military will be filled with officers willing to break all laws America will be seen as a state of military war criminals. It's already seen as a country that obstructs bringing military personal to international justice when US military breaches international treaties on warfare and it's only get worse.

  8. Pappy Chulo says:

    Once again trump is doing Putin's bidding. Everyone needs to remember that the GOP are fine with this. This is the 4th thing trump has done to undermine authority in the military. The 1st was sending troops to guard the border. The military is not legally allowed to be used as control in it's own country. The second time was when we found out they were given permission to shoot at moving vehicles along the southern border.The 3rd time was when the military was told that commands wouldn't change unless the order came from either the DOJ or the Secretary of State. Never has the DOJ or the Secretary of State commanded the military. Trump is following Putin's orders to create chaos in the order of command in the military. This is treason and should be prosecuted as such. We are in serious trouble.

  9. Holly Hocks says:

    Bone spurs has only done this so he can dangle a man in uniform at his rallies for his base to whoop whoop over. Have the military by all means but an honourable one. Gallaghers own troops adjusted his weapon to stop him killing innocent people. Wow not an honourable man in my eyes.

  10. M Munroe says:

    4:06 What needs to be done is to make sure that everyone understands that this President is an impostor, and he does not understand much about how the world really works. He only knows how he WOULD LIKE IT to work!

  11. morfo1010 says:

    So now , the brain washed military personal are learning they have freedom to donโ€™t follow stupid brain washed superiors, thank you Mr President finally weโ€™re going to be a free country

  12. Lanette Lester says:

    Well If everything go well with the impeachment what 45 said won't mean anything but he's corrupt. And it seems like just about everyone around him.

  13. Matt Henson says:

    It's concerning that less than a week after claiming a "civil war" would occur if he is impeached, he is now creating a wedge between the enlisted and leadership in the military.

  14. Robert Richard says:

    I wanna hear what Jesse Ventura sez about this, and how that Khaki Klad Gallagher made chief.

  15. Dane Patterson says:

    As a veteran of the 91 Gulf War, I feel these Specops guys are out of control and think they're above the law. No wonder Trump intervened

  16. Connie Green says:

    This so called navy seal has the audacity to bad mouth his commander?
    What arrogance!! And in the same breath praise that d**k head in the White House Heโ€™s a narcissist too.
    I am a Navy veteran and Iโ€™m ashamed of you.

  17. NBK Krypto says:

    ๐Ÿ“ข IMPEACH then IMPRISON! ๐Ÿ™

  18. L S says:

    The military forces should go against Trump and take back your power.

    Trump wants personal ownership of our military force groups.

    GET RID OF KILLER TRUMP

    TRUMP WANTS POWER

    EDDIE GALLAGHER IS A RACIST CRIMINAL. HE WILL GO DOWN IN THE WORST WAY

  19. hpqz says:

    The windbag yella belly bonespurs probably calculated,ย 
    ……. distraction, …I might get some positive spin off, and maybe some votes.ย 

    I.e. all about him while continuing to show astounding arrogance and ignorance.

  20. Tired of the lies says:

    Gallagher is no kind of military man. He's just a murderer.

  21. Steve Mlejnek says:

    Trumps actions here have earned him one vote next fall, and thousands of votes against him.

  22. Hamburger759 says:

    ANDREW YANG FOR PRESIDENT!!!! #YANG2020!!!!! https://www.yang2020.com/

  23. jerry downs says:

    As an old Vietnam Marine, I have great respect for Navy Seals. If I was a Seal, I'd go on Fox and shove that Trident so far up his butt it would hit Devin Nunes in the face.

  24. Supre Macy says:

    Looks like Trumps looking for men to lead his civil war, what better place to find them but in jail or disaffected men who were put in their place by their leaders. What better people to lead an unconstitutional coup than men he pardoned.

  25. preciouslogic77 says:

    What is so awful about this is that their are more people than Trump who see nothing wrong with what this murderer has done! It doesn't matter to them that he killed an already injured teen by Knifing him & posing with the corpse like he was an animal because of his Religion! Wake up Christians! The Bible teaches that this exact thing will happen to Christians before Jesus returns. I guess people don't care until it does happen to them!

  26. Rich Greene says:

    Who in there right mind would voluntarily join the army for 5years not your prez but then heโ€™s not in his right mind.

  27. Malcolm Mills says:

    In Trump world what crimes are acceptable so Trump ought to issue an apology to Germany for executing their war criminals.

  28. Hijabi 4Life says:

    Have to have good order and discipline!! Trump is a nightmare lord help us the next year and god forbid another 4 when Trump does leave his pardons will be totally horrific

  29. polyglot8 says:

    Don't knock Trump. He's pure Navy. If he ever gets on the stand before Congress, he'll perform like Captain Queeg!

  30. SPRINDYS says:

    It is (or must be) a practical joke to have a draft dodger in the president's seat, COMMANDER IN CHIEF! It is truly A VERY SAD JOKE and pray, tell me, what can tRump possibly know about the military at all, having fought off veneral disease in the 70s as his sole experience in combat. GOD KEEP US SAFE FROM 'the chosen one' tRump!

  31. RDR says:

    Trunp chose the wrong hill to die on with this situation.
    Military service members are expected to act with dignity and respect. The elite forces even moreso!
    This guy (Gallagher) doesn't deserve the honor of serving this country.

  32. Beverly Vinson says:

    Trump cares more about murderers and traitors to their OATHS….then the MANY SILDIERS WHO ARENT . ! trump is very mentally ill ..he loves chaos, distortion, and criminal activities . Trump doesnt CARE about our country or americans .
    Trump cares more about protect and bragging about murderous tyrants!! . Trump cares about himself and putin .
    Trump is terrorist influenced by putin who will do anything for him .
    ALL ROADS LEAD TO PUTIN . !!

  33. Don Anderson says:

    Look for the next trump move,donning a uniform like adolph hitler,except unlike trump,hitler did serve in the military during ww1.

  34. EnterTheCarp says:

    Geneva convention dictates how POWs and enemy combatants are to be handled. It does NOT include selfies with your dead victims… Integrity is helpful when confronted with such a situation…

  35. Steven Sprouse says:

    Another reason trump needs to be killed!

  36. Derek Brandell says:

    I hope someone brings justice to Eddie Gallagher.

  37. MosesPlays says:

    Under Trump there is criminalism in the gvt on a daily basis,why does the army expects 'good order and discipline' is beyond me.
    The fact that this draft dodger corrupt whimp of a lowlife excuse for a person has a say in the army's conduct means that he doesn't deserve the title commander in chief,and that maybe this title,and president should be seperated.

  38. Larry Ames says:

    Chief Eddie, as he will soon be known on the Trump 2020 Campaign, earned his Trident as well as his Anchor by meeting or exceeding the tasks set down by his Seniors. That same August Group, via a determined deliberation, can choose to remove those devices and all privileges that came with them – this is not a rare action. The former SECTNAV went politician while in a Chain of Command – about normal for a Trump nominee. The President acted completely within his normal stupid – no surprise here. Chief Eddie is the President's new prop and nothing more – enjoy your speaking tour. Now, let the stupid begin. – sorry, continue.

  39. Richard Marsh says:

    Here's the message it sends…

    You can ignore the rule of law and the chain of command. Especially if you're rolling with the president.

    Trump supporters within the military will soon be free to work directly for the White House. Like a little private army.

    RIP USA ๐Ÿ˜ญ ๐Ÿ˜ญ ๐Ÿ˜ญ

  40. Andy Woohoo says:

    Traitor Trumps is dismantling USA from the inside, no matter what part of the government he just keeps tearing it apart. Someone that is a draft dodger should NOT be able to take any decision regarding the armed forces, that is why he shouldn't be the chief in command. This lying disgrace has not only made up a medical issue to dodge the service his country asked of him, he does also bash Generals and say he knows more about the military then these men and woman that dedicated their life to the military, that has served for decades, this lying human garbage undermine everything in the USA.
    Trump is a cancer that spreads through society in all levels, brings out the worst among people and let the shady unpatriotic morons surface and gives them a voice, as a cancer he needs to be removed because that is the only way to cure such disease, if cancer is left in the body it will spread to all of it and you will die.

    Trump, Russia's biggest success!

  41. GM Newbold says:

    These three acts . . . his seperating immigrant children from their parents and locking them in cages . . . his abandonment of our Kurdish allies fighting ISIS in Syria and . . . his interference in the administration of military justice to Gallagher . . . has shown the vast majority of Americans serving the nation Donald Trump's true colors . . . a dishonorable shade of yellow.

    He has forever alienated the millions of men & women that voluntarily and selflessly serve the national intetests of the United States of America . . . be they diplomatic, military, or federal agents of any types (FBI, Border Control, US Marshalls, Secret Service, etc.).

    They are not with him . . . and will only tolerate him during their 8-hour shifts . . . up until 12 noon on January 20, 2021.

  42. Tom Cat says:

    Good order and discipline is the last thing Trump and the Republican Reich want. They want blind murderous hatred that they can order used on political rivals.
    RESIST!!

  43. Tal Moore says:

    Trump needs the troops on his side when he tries to claim the 2020 election "rigged" and invalid. He will use them to stay in power indefinitely.

  44. MIchael Rigby says:

    Eddie gallagher shot kids in the back…that was the US cavalry at sand Creek..Same people are in charge today.

  45. Milton - Canada says:

    Apparently Trump is ABOVE the LAW and so he can do what ever he wants in every department of the US government!
    Great presidential figure to teach everyone you can break the law and still get away with it Donny, (do you know about chain of command you non-military fake president).

  46. John Gallegos says:

    way to go captain bone spurs.

  47. markj6700 says:

    trump is so corrupt, he's honoring murderers.

  48. Joe alonzo says:

    Richard V. Spencer playing dangerous games against President Trump.ย  According to the Pentagon statement, Esper learned Friday that Spencer had privately made an offer to the White House to allow Gallagher to retire as a Navy SEAL with his Trident insignia. The Washington Post reports that the proposal was "conditioned on the Trump administration agreeing not to interfere in the proceedings against Gallagher."

  49. Lex Nel says:

    Serves America right for letting this garbage in the door. Americans REFUSE to stand together when it counts most and that is why this will always be an issue. He saw that he could capitalise on the "us Vs them" rhetoric and he has. Stop the gerrymandering, stop allowing the PARTIES to rig things (doesn't matter how small). Get rid of the electoral college seeing an elector can vote for who THEY WANT TO VOTE FOR and not who their constituents want them to vote for. All in all, everything this person touches gets a super infection. Business, politics, sports and now the armed forces. If Americans don't act now and change course, then WHEN?

  50. Wanuby says:

    If you asked Trump what UCMJ is and/or what it stands for, he wouldn't know. He probably wouldn't care either. Someone like that should just avoid dealing with military justice since they have no understanding or effort to do so.

  51. Pamela Damaris says:

    Trump ruins everything. He's a bad seed.

  52. ZARTHALAS says:

    Hope all Seals don't vibe as douchey as this clownfuck.

  53. Nicole Love says:

    donald j trump is DISGUSTING!

  54. Lindalee Law says:

    My dad was Navy. And a Republican.. He would be very displeased .

  55. Rip Off says:

    Man of the year ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ a new door will open, as always!!!

  56. Rip Off says:

    Who will take a picture with a dead person!!!

  57. Rip Off says:

    Mr secretary you a right ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘. Very well.

  58. sunahura says:

    The Army is not a separate power of government, Follow Orders!

  59. insAneTunA says:

    Lost for words….1- how is this even possible? 2- Are the Americans going to stand by and watch this happen and do nothing about it? It's disgusting….another low point in American history.

  60. Sabine Katsavrias says:

    No country is going to want your filthy forces on their lands if this behaviour is protected. Grats trump, loss of respect for law and country by the boatload.

  61. Johnny Hutto says:

    Eddie Gallagher is a American hero.๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

  62. barbh1 says:

    I think Trump is showing his base that he will not bow to international laws regarding war crimes.

  63. Fermin Flores says:

    Jesus, how can you be called cammander in chief when you have no idea what it means. What a shame.

  64. JRG2733 says:

    FIRE Secretary Esper! Fire Trump sycophants,!

  65. J B says:

    Cadet Bone-Spurs has absolutely zero respect for the military, nor for the chain of command. … As Donald "COWARD" Trump thinks he is king of America.

  66. Peter George says:

    CNN downplayed he's crimes . Sounds like CNN think he should be pardon also .

  67. Jack Long says:

    Cadet bone spurs unmatched stupidity is on full display.

  68. Aero FPV says:

    To the average American, like myself, please listen to this lifelong military leader as a guidance toward what Trump has done. Our opinions cannot hold a candle to what this senior veteran has said.

  69. bubba luv says:

    so the man defies trump and gets sacked, the guy is a five year old throwing toys out of the sandpit

  70. richard hunter says:

    In 2020, take out Trump and the Republicans in the Senate. Now if that does not shake up e good ol' boys, what will?

  71. H Browning says:

    Another attack on our country's military by Putin through Trump.

  72. Billy Crutchfield says:

    So What do you expect from Trump Mr. Bone Spurs

  73. Muzz Milk says:

    As a military veteran that behaviour is inexcusable and should result in a discharge.

  74. UNSC INFINITY says:

    This now opens the door for other Military Personnel to conduct themselves in such a matter that will discredit the US Military. That Soldier should have lost his badge and been demoted. It proves that under the Trump Administration, you can commit crimes and get away with it. NOT A GOOD LOOK

  75. KO says:

    GOP…GANG OF PUTINS…..OUR NEW DICTATOR WILL USE MY MILITARY BROTHERS TO PARADE THEM AROUND AT HIS RALLIES…HE DOESNโ€™T CARE ABOUT THE MILITARY…HE IS A DRAFT DODGER OF VIETNAM….WHILE MY BROTHERS WILL GETTING KILLED AND MAIMED SO HE COULD RUN HIS CRIMINAL LIFE….STAND UP…

  76. Big Ern Mahkracken says:

    Get it right this time america, vote 2020.

  77. J. D. Schultz, Sr. says:

    This orange turd got the idea to pardon this mercenary from the Hannity and the other chicken-hawks at propaganda-mill faux"news." Listen to Master Chief Malcom Nance. His comments mirror my sentiments of this unprecedented malfeasance by a sitting "president."—J.D. Schultz, MM2, USNR, 1965-71.

  78. Norman Harris says:

    The republicans.. president and all have eschewed character for power….๐Ÿ˜’

  79. Therone Dawson says:

    Trump supporters will still stand by him. He can do no wrong.

  80. Trumpty Dumpty your fall is coming! says:

    Yet another disgrace. Putin sure has gotten his money's worth with Traitor Trump.

  81. Lily Martinez says:

    OMG! Everything Trump touches turns to sh*t!

  82. Hlafordlaes says:

    As the USA is clearly no longer capable of self-policing, let alone self-restraint in the face of tempting war crimes, it is clearly now time to reconstitute the Nuremberg Tribunal and charge, then at least attempt to detain, several living US presidents and a slew of civilians and military personnel. Remember Abu Ghraib, the graveyard of US military, government, and citizen honor!!
    Same goes for Russian and Chinese goons. They all need to go down.

  83. allan v mercado says:

    are the russian and chinese intelligence people smarter than the US? Trump violates the constitution and now creating chaos with the military. Who benefits from both? weakening the US military and dividing the american people.

  84. frenstcht says:

    Warriors lose wars, soldiers win wars.

  85. jJ Lama says:

    Democrats new slogan, should be……..ENOUGH!

  86. Dave Rivers says:

    Another Putin puppet trick to destabilize the US. The Art of War states that a general's best (Putin's) weapon is a spy (or operative) embedded in the enemy's side. Trump is Putin's instrument. An easily manipulated man who is President to do as much harm to the US as possible. #tuppet

  87. Suomy Nona says:

    Another case of bribery, Trump gave the order to let the disgraced seal keep his pin in exchange for having him campaign for Trump.

  88. Taylor C says:

    Trump started to destroy America and now our military! Iโ€™ve said before Iโ€™m gonna say it again he is a Russian asset and all the Spineless Republicans That support him should be ashamed and investigated

  89. Arthur Radtke says:

    Trump. Bonespurs. Deferred service. Interference. Dictator. Just lost militarys respect.

  90. Pao Lee says:

    Trump's track record shows…he's a Russian bot.

  91. Gabriel Moline says:

    Dump is actively trying to destroy the United States.

  92. Cue 1st Amend says:

    Faux News is complicit in Trump's interference in the Navy. The propaganda channel must be shut down. They are banned in many countries.

  93. Sam Sabet's Video's says:

    The EX SECNAV accepted his position by Trump.ย  To quote Trumps words to a Gold Star mother, he knew what he signed up for…..

  94. Jim Battersbee says:

    The collapse of the American empire has now begun to infect the military. Like elsewhere the rot starts at the top, in this case with Americas elite extra-judicial killing force, but it will spread. Collapse from within is like a cancer and there's no way back.

  95. rleb blco l says:

    WRONG IN EVERY ACT! ON HE'S POST! ((as a president????))

  96. rleb blco l says:

    The Secretary of the Navy is out of a job and blasting the effect that could come to discipline within the military after Trump jumps into the controversy involving a Navy SEAL. Aired on 11/25/1

  97. Thomas delvin says:

    trump was wrong on this .at no time should the killing of another human being during war be used as a cannibalistic trophy. truly disrespectful of all soldiers. death is not a trophy sport. neither is war

  98. Love America says:

    ๐Ÿ˜ฅ what manner of darkness is occupying the office of presidency? FAST AMERICA AND PRAY.

  99. Admanistan Sheridan says:

    Good old 'bone spurs' shoots the sherriff to save the bandits

  100. JK says:

    A more important issue to discuss: How this President makes a decision based on what he gets feed by his favorite News Media channel. He skipped the experts, review board, the court findings, chain of command, rules, and order. Dear Republican, Democrats, and our Military Veterans – regardless of your party association – this action is not okay. What happened to America as a beacon of light for other countries to admire. Remember Lady Justice is blindfolded for a reason. We are better than this!
