  1. You don’t mess with the Navy for politics.

    • @Troy Stocker
      That was because MacArthur violated directives about fighting past the Chinese border and got the Chinese involved in the Korean War. And then he wanted to use nukes when a million Chinese streamed over the border.

      Not the same really.

    • @Troy Stocker

      The only person Trump is driving “Mad” is the Republican Party.
      That’s why they keep disclosing Impeachable offences while blaming Impeachment on the Democrats. 😁

    • One would think but i guess trump isn’t one of those people!

    • @Ralph Boyd insubordination

  2. Hey Gallagher, before you snivel about others “insubordination”, maybe you should explain how breaking the ROE (Rules Of Engagement) isn’t an egregious example of insubordination against the chain of command that issues them.

  3. Stand on your square like a man, Spencer, don’t crumble like a piece of cheese.

      too late, after he went on tv to sell out the pentagon fired him…

      Spencer needs to be stripped of ANY military mentions for insubordination and conduct unbecoming at the very least.

      @Angry Shamrock If I heard correctly, he was working some secret scam with Trump. Orange Man Badly Corrupt can bring out the scam in people. Look at Barr and Graham and others. Trump is a con-scam magnet.

  4. We can bet that Trump’s next move will be the one that is most immoral and unethical — possibly criminal, if he can find a way to do it.

      Trump hates the military. They serve the country, not him. They have medals. He has bone spurs. Trump hates anyone more accomplished than he is.

  5. General Mad Dawg Mattis: “The only person in the military Trump doesn’t think is overrated is, of course, Colonel Sanders.” 🤔🙄

  6. He was just fired.

  7. This evil evil man represents everything wrong with our military!

      @Dar Mar Whereas Trump stole the money that should have been spent on the military bases and used it to build his invisible wall.

    • Margaret Nicol | November 24, 2019 at 8:32 PM | Reply

      @Mario Mosin He enjoys his toys but are you aware of the military who are on food stamps? Trump also stole the money that should have been spent on the military bases and used it to build his invisible wall.

    • @Margaret Nicol I’m sorry you hate this Country so much…. I’m sorry you love killing 70,000 American’s a year with Latin Heroin….. If you wanna live in a low wage drugged up slave state, please move to Central and leave America out of it.

    • Margaret Nicol | November 24, 2019 at 9:13 PM | Reply

      @Dar Mar You mean the central that the US screwed up so much? Maybe people are taking drugs so they can dream of a US with no Trump. Big pharma is responsible for more deaths than anything else.

  8. Can you imagine this as defence in a foreign war crime trial:- “It’s OK because the President said so”.

    • Far less bad than Obama calling an American Muslim sympathizer in the army who shot and killed many of his fellow American Soldiers “workplace violence “.

    • People just like this died to protect the rights you so happily take for granted today…. Shameful

    • Dar Mar Defends a war criminal who killed old men, teenage girls and a child soldier most likely forced into it after capture and handcuffed to the point that his own into turned him in. No surprise since you people have centuries of this sort of behavior world wide.

    • @coptic777 This man was found innocent, Fought for this Country 19 years and this is the respect you show him? Who’s side are you on? I suggest you go live there.

  9. Jason Ryan Wilson | November 24, 2019 at 6:13 PM | Reply

    The Defense secretary just fired the navy secretary. Thats breaking news

  10. Trump does what he want’s… He’s going to make a mint when he sells the US to Putin.

  11. Coward bone spurs isn’t qualified to command a paintball team. When you accept a pardon you are still a criminal. You just don’t do the time. “Sheriff” Joe found that out the hard way.

      Yet another keyboard republicockholster born out of his mom’s basement hole.

    • Cool Hand Mark | November 24, 2019 at 7:56 PM | Reply

      Awwww poor little underachieving republicockholster all butthurt because he can’t afford any toys! Try this, how about getting one of those “college liberal indoctrinated educations” and get a career that will provide the opportunities to have cool toys… instead of the typical Reich-wing education-hating jobs like the one you have washing the tires on all of your neighbors houses?

    • Far less bad than Obama calling an American Muslim sympathizer in the army who shot and killed many of his fellow American Soldiers on a military base “workplace violence “.

    • People just like this died to protect the rights you take for granted today…. Shameful

    There goes Trump!!! Putting his nose where it doesn’t belong!! 🇺🇸

  13. Deborah Miness | November 24, 2019 at 6:24 PM | Reply

    Spencer has been asked for his resignation by Pentagon.

  14. LunarJane Global WarmingIs Real | November 24, 2019 at 6:29 PM | Reply

    What an entitled little f🤬. Kick him out

  15. This man has no respect for this country. We must act! #Vote

  16. Oddvard Myrnes | November 24, 2019 at 6:35 PM | Reply

    Sickening. Good men are ashamed and no braves have any symphaty for this man.

  17. Trump sticks his nose in everywhere!!

  18. Is this the same guy who was accused of *War crimes*

  19. *Not so surprising that a treasonous president would support war criminals.🥺*

    • @Dar Mar Republicans gettink curb stomped and we liberals love it. Impeached, maggot

    • @Dar Mar Wow. That has to be the dumbest response I’ve ever seen. Trump is a coward, period. Fred Trump got him out of Vietnam so it’s partially his fault.

    • @Septembers Whisper I learned a long time ago not to believe everything I hear and read since everyone has an agenda. Obama did alot of foreign things wrong, the red line was unforgivable imo. They all have blood on their hands from either actions or non actions, all presidents do. I will say that I disliked Trump starting about 10 years ago or so, I used to buy his books before the evidence became overwhelming of what a cad and conman he is.

    • @Bonnie Parker Well then you better buy a truck load of Kleenex because you have at least another 5 years of miserable existence to contend with…… And at the rate the democrats and their colluding media are going they may not see the WH for decades.

  20. The fact that this SEAL is talking about his commanders so poorly to the public is enough to make me believe he doesn’t deserve the title. No honor or respect.
