100 thoughts to “Gaetz explains why he voted with Dems on War Powers resolution”

  1. I get what the man is saying. And I would agree. If these democrats hadn't already showed their total hate for our president. And did this for no other reason to try and cause our president issues. So with that his decision to side with them was way off! This is a democratic party that has no interest in working with the president or republicans. and attacking our Constitution and our way of government. So for him to say it was a good idea. A bit stupid in today's governemt. You just gave the democrats the thumbs up. That our president was wrong and they are right. Can't take away the commander and chiefs constitutional right to protect our country. Now go to war is a different discussion. Any president needs to get congress approval. But to take out a threat to our soldiers and country. Not going to happen!!! This vote would not hold up in court for a second. So again Matt just crossed the line. For really no reason except to side with the democrats. That was a wierd choice in my opinion.

  2. I agree with Matt He’s pointing out yet again the hypocrisy of war powers being used on one side Not allowed on the other

  3. He destroyed his career with one vote! Patriots will never trust him again! Vote this wolf in sheep’s clothing out!

  4. all these people salty gaetz has an opinion and belief of his own. rand paul wouldnt of voted for it. neither would have tucker. the tribalism on full display will never heal divisions. be grateful that republicans CAN have a difference of opinion and not be silenced as the democrats do to their own. Gaetz is not even close to a Rino.

  5. Everyone in the comments acting like a bunch of children overreacting to the way he voted… He does all this hard work fighting against impeachment and does one single thing that isn't in your favor and everyone acts like he's some Democrat propaganda tool. I sure hope everyone criticizing him is perfect themselves, otherwise you're just a bunch of hypocrites.

  6. Gaetz you sellout. Are you too stupid to see the POTUS is under attack from the "LIARS" you just joined on that vote? Who castrated you?

  7. There’s a reason why Trump is president and Tucker and Gaetz aren’t even close to being qualified. The Iranian people are now calling for the Ayatollah and his regime to leave power just one week into Soleimani being dead. And Gaetz sees this as war???? He really is a tool. I argued against that once here on this channel. SMH

  8. Congrats dumbass, you just gave florida to the democrats

    You won a close race in flordia SOLELY because you were such a strong ally of trump. Florida is too big and too close in elections, for you to be voting against what president trump wants

    Effin moron

  9. Comments to this video just proved a simple fact: the right in the US is poisoned by "PELOSI BAD"&"DEMOCRATS BAD" crowd just as much as the left is poisoned by the "ORANGE MAN BAD" crowd. If the same, to the letter, resolution was proposed by someone on the right, everyone would be cheering for the strong anti war stance of all republican reps who voted for it. But just because it was introduced by Pelosi, then anyone who voted for it is a traitor… wow, just wow. It's exactly the same rhetoric i see in regards to impeachment votes by Van Drew, Gabbard. So f-ing dissappointing.

  10. Gaetz…have you learnt NOTHING! You stick TOGETHER when the barbarians are at the gate! Your explanation is nonsense. You have done much damage to your respect status. What a fool.

  11. Understand Matt Gaetz. The War Resolution is non binding.
    PRESIDENT TRUMP has said many times he's not seeking War with Iran but rather seeking a Peace Agreement with Iran. I trust PRESIDENT TRUMP 🙏 💓

  12. I see so many posts on here that seem like they are Democrats. Haetz voted for a bill….that's non binding…and is actually constitutionally based. The Democrats are trying to make Republicans sound as cultish as they are. Sad Pelosi set us up to sound like we can't have differing opinions. The constitution already requires congressional approval….its meant to make us look uninformed.

  13. You Republicans are your own worse enemy turning on itch other can't defend your President you so love so much. SO YOU SAY 🤔BACKSTABBING. DEMOCRATS STICK TOGETHER NO MATTER WHAT .Both of you turned your back on Trump.

  14. Gaetz is an alarmist too, the globalist just fully outed himself. And he needed a 'smart analysis' to betray the President and hand the media another excuse to attack him.

  15. I’m a Floridian and I want you to remember how principled Matt was during the impeachment process. He is one of Trumps biggest defenders.

    As of now, he is out of step with the president because he is an ANTI-WAR Conservative, just as trump was during the election and is today. This isn’t about trump – maybe for the Democrats it is – but about the next democratic president. Gaetz does not want the next Obama or god forbid Clinton to be able to send Americans into useless wars without congress having a say.

    Nothing wrong with that.

  16. Hey Matt. You just showed you're a brainless turnip. Side with Dems on anything and just got played. Good luck in Primary.

  17. It was a CR Concurrent Resolution —-no power or force of law behind it. Political grandstanding. Why would Gaetz go along with this? He's been compromised. Another one bites the dust and gets revealed.

  18. You can't run a country, a company, a kitchen, a cleaning crew etc. by committee. There is only 1 leader. Matt, you've disqualified yourself for any leader position. Pity, you are so young.

  19. I like Representative Gaetz, but he is wrong about the elimination of Soleimani being an act of war, rather a military operation. The President does not need the approval of Congress to neutralize an enemy of mankind. Final analysis: If Soleimani was in Iran, he would not have been a target.

  20. UP NEXT: SENATE DEBATES: “Is it unconstitutional to follow the constitution?”

  21. Looking at the comments, it appears many people are unable to see the bigger picture like Matt clearly did. The resolution made restrictions on the executive branch now and in the future, meaning that future presidents would be limited regardless of party affiliation. This would be an extra check and balance against the US getting themselves into extended wars. It's bigger than the Democrats vs. President Trump and that's what Rep. Gaetz saw.

  22. Congressman thanks for explaining that.
    Explaining what? He just spent 4 minutes talking gibberish.
    You have lost my support!

  23. He spoke to potus AFTER the vote. That's all you need to know.

    Gaetz: You mad at me? 😥

    Potus: Nah but you should've talked to me BEFORE the vote 😒

  24. What do they have on you Mr. Gaetz ? It must be huge to make you start undermining your President and his team's decisions. After all you know exactly what is going on against your President and country by the Democrats and you do not get to use those who died fighting for their country to justify your vote. This was not a vote to fix anything , it was a vote to undermine President Trump and you knew it.

  25. Why is Nancy Pelosi allowed to double talk in a Tucker interview??!

    Wait, What? That wasn't Nancy?

    Oooops, I didn't have my glasses on and only heard the (predictable) Swamp spin attempting to justify their actions as the draining continues; exposing the more cleverly disguised.

  26. Matt is doing a huge disservice for the solidarity of his party and Trump. His vote is inconsequential but the optics are really bad. I like Gaetz and I’m going to give him another chance.

  27. It's been need congress approval to go war. This vote is to limit President make any decision for protecting American from Irania regime. Come on Matt, you should be smarter than that. But yet you side and bow to Pelosi. Shame on you 🙄 🙄

  28. It's a non-binding political move, Matt so why try to stir up trouble and give the Dems something to make a big issue about. If I was in Matt's state I would not vote for him.

  29. Matt Gaetz is part of the DEEP STATE!!He was appointed by OBAMA!He help HILLARY get elected!!And he also helped BIDEN!!

  30. The congress already has a say in extended periods like war.  Trump blew up a sand mite that was responsible for dead Americans, attacking our embassy and planning more attacks.  I was going to vote for you in 2024.  You may still have time to redeem yourself…

  31. Matt Gaetz, never try try to limit our presidents power. Especially when the swamp is doing it. America agrees it's time for action and not love.

  32. The War Powers Resolution has no teeth, it's a non-binding resolution. It was a political attack against President Trump taken by Pelosi. Matt Gaetz assisted Pelosi in this political attack against our president.

    Since this was purely symbolic, it was nothing more than an attack against Trump, and by voting with Pelosi, she now can say even Matt Gaetz was against President Trump.

    She will twist this until it's unrecognizable.

    Matt "The Moron" Gaetz is a dumb as he looks..

  33. Its so wonderful to look down at the comment's and see trumpturds turning on your own kind like the rabid bunch of snakes you all know you are.
    Score one for the Democrats!!!
    Suck it losers!! 🖕😎🖕

  34. Matt, what did anyone say to you or give you to vote that way? You're babbling did not impress anyone with real character. Judas was all about money also Matt.

  35. I still don't get it, but the Patriots are in control. Maybe there was a reason that we are yet to find out about. It doesn't really affect POTUS''s ability to carry out strikes, like he just did. Basically, I believe this 'resolution' is pointless and already covers what is in the Constitution. "Much ado about nothing" as Shakespeare wrote.

  36. Traitor, move to the Democrat party. This guy needs to be replaced. I knew he was a RINO when he was kissing up to Occasionally-Conscious.

  37. So he's passionate that the, do nothing to get paid, United States Congress must vote in order for the POTUS to declare war…..even though it already clearly states in the United States Constitution that Congress must agree in order to declare war. What are they going to vote on next? That women should have the right to vote? This is what our hard earned money is paying for and yes, the 3 Republicans should be ashamed they literally just agreed with a political ploy that is no more than the Dems misleading the American people. The sheep that believe every insanity the Dems utter actually believe that they just saved the world from Trump randomly declaring war on other countries! Nevermind Congress already held that power AND Trump never had any intention of declaring war! EVERY member of Congress should have voted no as it was A COMPLETELY USELESS WASTE OF PAPER!!!!

  38. Dont be fools. We need Gaetz. Nothing is wrong for voting for that bill. Its a good bill. Especially if the shoe was on the other foot. You'd be for it if Obama was president. Dont go and vote out people like Gaetz. That would be dumb. Its idiotic to always vote down party lines. He is showing he can think for himself.

  39. Aww man I like this guy. Not sure all the specifics here, but it feels like the wrong move to make. I think it is important for the parties to get along, but it's the wrong vote to cast considering the number of people in Congress, and the number of leaks there could be. Timing issues and secrecy issues could hamstring us

  40. What were you thinking Matt….. not a good move! Don’t tell me you are another Romney, Collins or Murkowski……Founding fathers did not have terrorists to deal with and sophisticated weaponry….Trump or any President, has to make split second decisions.

  41. Iran is every child ever. They keep pushing and pushing trying to figure out where the line is. All other world leaders and Americans former administration were the weak soft pained parents that let their little shits become little shits. Trump is the parent with a backbone that is going to draw a line and back it up.

    Give and inch they take a mile. Stop letting Iran walk all over everyone and draw a line and stand by it.
