  1. It's fox news stooping to new lows….hiring donna "give debate questions to hillary BEFORE debate while working for cnn and now she works for fox" Brazille

  2. Trump knew who and what this guy is. Trump hired Mattis to do a job, namely: defeat the ISIS "caliphate" in Iraq-Syria. He accomplished that task and then Trump showed him the door. Mattis was never for Trump and I imagine he was happy to leave, so he could make money doing what he's doing. It is possible to be a good General and a Swamp creature. People are complicated. Besides, I'd be more concerned if he was working for China rather than India. As I understand it, India is a strategic partner in that region.

  3. I was looking for a Fox video that got the most viewers and settled on
    this one. Here's my point for trump's base to chew on. how many cable
    and tv comedy shows are coming from the radical far right? Answer –
    NONE! All from the left: Colbert, Maher, Noah, Seth Myers, John Oliver,
    Jon Stewart, Kimmel, etc.. So where is the comedy coming from the right
    and why isn't there any? Could it be that they're so dark and full of
    garbage conspiracy theories and so paranoid?

  6. You're making the unpolitical, political to the detriment of our country. If you'd taken the time to understand Secretary Mattis' career, you'd understand that he sees business as a means of preventing war. Prosperous people tend not to go to war.
    If you'd ever watched him speaking to young troops, you'd understand his commitment to their safety. Preventing war = keeping young troops safe. International trade is NOT an existential evil. International trade on scales ridiculously out of balance with our trading partners is the evil.
    I see nothing traitorous, or even unethical here. I don't want to live in a world where only American children have bright futures. International trade on a fair basis, gives everyone's children a place at the table.

  7. Its time that you ask your president for who he is working, or ask Kissinger. He could give you the answer. He did already by the way not long time ago, but you did not pay attention. Big mistake.

  8. 🤓🤓🤓🤓James Mattis quits as secretary of defense, this man couldn't handle trump nor get with other military members and republican veterans to put trump in check. I have to now question Mattis military leadership. But, it sure explains why are military members are in the current foolish circumstances and are being politicized for trump's special interest. Sad! Just sad!😞😞😞😞😞

  9. No surprise that ignorant, delusional , morons like FOX and the MAGA crowd would believe that Mattis's stature has been harmed because of his new job. Draft dodging racist fools like all of you, and Trump are deplorable and obtuse . No fixing stupid & you morons prove it every day.

  10. He’s a Marine and served his nation most of his life, having this English wanker discrediting his service is disgusting. I suggest you head back to England and deal with Brexit.

  11. So another , Once Great Patriot , bites the dust to $$$$….
    Once defended America & now Sells it out 👎👎👎
    Disgraceful !

  12. The US was forced to extract a top-secret source from Russia after President Donald Trump revealed classified information to two Russian officials in 2017. Comrade Chumpsky fails national security 101.

  13. Five former Trump associates, including his longtime personal lawyer, are now convicted criminals.

  14. An Englishman insulting an US army icon who worked for the Trump administration and has devoted his whole life to public service, and Trump supporters accept this all. America is turning into a land of hypocritical backstabbing mindless cult members.

  15. i call BS on this episode of swamp watch. to call people out on something, you cant , yourself be participating in it, id say trump is a swamp rat.

  16. well nothing new another sell out in this case is embarrassing he is not just ex secretary of defence …a general
    Ike was right to warns all this years ago all this companies needs to be dismantle and all the lobbyist put in jail

  17. Everybody with power or control over information is a Globalist / Communist. As a matter of fact, most Right Wingers are also Communists. The end goal of America will be the Communist end goal. Donald Trump himself is a Communist lol, that's why none of them have been locked up and won't be either.

  18. hmmm how fast before he's on the Confused News Network bad-mouthing POTUS when he was fired by him…cuz that's what this was all about…just a matter of time before these anti-Trumpers start to act like what they've always been….the swamp runs deep indeed!

  19. When is swamp watch going to mention the huge swamp monster in the Oval Office?
    You know the numerous conflicts of interest with hotels, resorts. Not to mention being able to manipulate the stock market with his insane tweets.

  20. We need "an event"… like the patriotic people deciding it is time to see the criminal-political-elite charged & prosecuted. Exposure & wakening the masses requires the PEOPLE…. 'Q + Trump' are not enough!

  21. Mattis is a fool for the wishful leftist narratives. He invested and got burnt by the Silicon Valley fraud of Theranos.
    He sat on its board and was an agent for the Military to invest in the white elephant scam.

  22. This story supports the fact Thump like Obama filled the swamp with vile creatures. Same thing Hillary would’ve done.

  23. That's why he was known as "Mad Dog Mattis".
    Amazing how dangerous people like this can rise to the ranks of being a danger to everything they dabble in.

  24. It is shameful to guy it was looked upon as a basically a hero for our country is now stabbing Us in the back doesn't seem right next he'll be standing the president the back God I hope he's not a swamp creature I thought he was a man of Honor

  25. The comments here that I’m seeing are absolutely ridiculous, this is one time I’m really pissed with FOX News. Mattis never would’ve done this without reason, and more importantly it’s disgraceful to try and disgrace him when all he’s done for Democrats is never give them the answers they want and for Republicans give them all the answers they need.

  26. Its truly amazing how many people the media will attempt to tear down. General mattis is an honourable American, if you don't know why then you weren't ever in a culture that understands merit.

  27. Here's the thing, when was the last time Fox News criticized the swampiness in Trump's administration?
    This story and many Fox stories are 100% about attacking people critical of Trump. It isn't about being 'Fair and Balanced'
    Fox is a state propaganda outfit.

  28. We were sold a bill of goods about Mattis. Bottom line is the fact that O5 (Lt. Colonel) and beyond it’s more networking and politics that keep you climbing in rank than it is sheer leadership. Even in the military or in this case my beloved Marine Corps it’s still politics that get you to the top! I went thru OCS and then TBS with 2 hard core & hard charging 2nd Lieutenants who both made it to 06 (Colonel) in the infantry, but only 1 will move on because he was the politician!!!!

  29. A 5 minute fact check of these claims shows how ridiculous this nonsense is. Why dont you ask Sarah Huckabee or any of your contributors how moving to the private sector is immoral, you limey d-bag.

  30. China in many ways is a western ally, than it is to its next door neighbor Russia ( formally USSR, the greatest threat to the west decades ago) I dont think you can even imagine what would of happened if they were totally with the USSR. How did the west do this? By making them trade with us, by giving manufacturing jobs to them, in return not going to war with us with a billion man nation. Stop singing the greatest hits of the poor white man. Open your eyes… what would NASA be without India, and the tech giants of America? This is how a capitalist nation does its best. It buys its possible enemies out, and makes allies who love the U.S.A. …. they took our jobs….

  31. I have never trusted Mattis. Flag officers (Generals and Admirals) do not get "promoted" to their rank. They are appointed by congress and approved by the president. I am a career Marine and once knew a Marine colonel who "politiced several congressmen in order to be appointed before congress. To get that first star required a lot of butt kissing. Can you imagine kissing up to Maxine Waters or Nancy Pelosi to get nominated? Mattis sounds "tough" and patriotic in speeches and many love to quote him, but he's just a political hack who needed that first star to move onto the political stage.
    There are two types of flag officer, the one who rejects political grandstanding and retires with the admiration of the people who served with him and the other who goes to work for a business or political think tank (lobbyist) and is self promoting.

  32. This was Trump's pick! It's Trump's swamp. And then when Trump's people get sick of babysitting his irrational temper tantrums, Fox News attacks them for it. This has been true since 2016.

  33. I don’t think Mattis would do anything morally compromising. Ive met him and watched him fairly closely since 2003. He’s a very morally grounded person. I just lost respect for Fox.

  34. You can’t just talk about businesses without talking about unions, education and drug addiction. Its time for unions and businesses to work together to keep jobs here. It’s also time for our schools and parents to do a better job of educating our children. We can’t compete with China and India if we don’t improve our education system. The feel good policies of the left are destroying our schools. So many jobs are unfilled because to many people can’t pass the drug test. American people also have to take responsibility.

  35. Trump employed Mattis. How many lobbyists has Trump given important jobs to so far? Check it out, the heads of several Trump departments were lobbyists. More garbage from Trump TV.

  36. Mad dog mattis only cares about himself. He did not want to make a family because it would hinder his career. He pushed boys to war to make a name for himself. He only cares about his name.

  37. It's incredible how you imbeciles are so wrapped up in your fantasies that you'd question the loyalty of a patriot like General Mattis, a man with nearly universal acclaim from those who've served with him, officer and enlisted alike.
