    A million subscribers, nine thousand views, 3:2 like dislike ratio. FAKE NEWS.

  2. D HOP says:

    John Mccain was a traitor!

  3. Tuco Remirez says:

    Perhaps we need to change in America, and stop naming all of our ships after arms dealing war criminal terrorists as we so often do.

  4. Paul Dailey says:

    John McCain is a POS. The only difference between now and then is death.

  5. Silly donkey, Trump can only smack Sen. McCain's memorial, nothing more from these donkeys.

  6. Even in death, war hero John McCain still finds a way to troll Trump. Savage!

  7. Rani Rich says:

    Another Fake News Media LIE bites the dust! Meghan crying it up all over Fake News Media about something that never happened, but hey, never miss an opportunity to trash President Trump! You people are SICK!

  8. Mr. Shanahan…YOU ARE NOT IN CHARGE OF ANYTHING…YOU HAVE NOT CONVEYED YOUR EXPECTATIONS TO YOUR SUBORDINATES TO WHERE THEY UNDERSTAND YOUR PRINCIPLES…YOU ARE A FAILED "LEADER" AND UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES…I USE THE WORD "LEADER" MOST LOOSELY !!!

  9. Go ast says:

    Kinda reminds me of a dictatorship.

  10. Watch "You Can't Handle the Truth TRUMP! – A Few Good Men (7/8) Movie CLIP (1992) HD" on YouTube

    You would have moved the tub or you would have been back at the drive through taking orders! You don't have the balls to refuse a direct order from the Best President in Americas History! I hope Trump fires your punk fuggin azz!

  12. The coward who gave the order to dishonor war heroes should be fired.

  13. Catfish59 WD says:

    Russia come and get your propaganda affiliates CNN,MSNBC,NBC and we'll give you the Democrats there old School U.S.S.R party members anyway.They need an intervention!

  14. Who really cares!! I'd sink it, and use it for fish homes!! It's not good for nothing else!!

  15. Toxic Grunt says:

    The ghost of John McCain moved that ship. I heard sailors saying they smelled brimstone…

  16. If it was trump he's the commander in chief,

  17. Jeff Beck says:

    John “ snitch” McCain

  18. Clay Potter says:

    Launch a formal investigation over who moved a ship? Really?

  19. The ship is not even named for "that" John McCain!

  20. Tonybot says:

    They should court martial whoever dissed an American hero for Cadet Bonespurs

  21. I Flick says:

    John McCain questioned The Leader on at least four different occasions. The ship should be sank to create artificial coral reef. Somewhere The Leader will never have to see it.

  22. Edward Terry says:

    Fake controversy. Nobody who can be taken seriously even cares.

  23. James Jones says:

    He isn't going to launch an investigation, he just wants to know what happened, that is code for cover-up the trail. If he was serious about who did what there would be an investigation.
