Three National Security Advisers in 2.5 years, one of whom is in jail. Perfectly normal. God knows what bottom-feeding kiss-ass he'll find to fill the spot.

I wonder if Bolton manned up and told Tan the Conman that announcing to the world that he's in love with the brutal dictator of North Korea isn't a good choice.

Were I the Iranians I wouldn’t waste any time inviting Trump to Tehran. Bolton out, Afghan deal in a coma, and Trump is mega thirsty for a foreign policy “win”.
Unless there's a Trump property in Iran, I'm guessing he'd decline the invite.

No need for Trump to find a replacement NSA. He's already got at least a couple of them over at FOX. The bonus feature is that FOX pays them so Trump doesn't have to.

But wut-eva's. The walls of his gilded stateroom are closing in on Trump as his Ship of State slowly sinks into that swamp he said he was going to drain. Everybody is telling him what to do to help him keep his ship afloat but he doesn't trust them and he thinks he always knows best anyway so why have them around to begin with? He wants temps. Easier to get rid of, pays less.

Besides, all he wants out of his hirelings is for them to stroke his ginormous insatiable ego and to steal from them the aura of being the leader of the world's most powerful influential personalities. His need to initially surround himself with generals (what no sissy girly admirals?) was a perfect example of such.

Just because the President has a national security advisor doesn't mean he listens to them or ever intended to. OTOH, Bolton did what Trump wanted in breaking the NSC. It's like how he had Tillerson break the State Dept,

Why should anyone give him credit? Trump hired him.

The stability exuded by this administration is stunning.
He hired him, but it doesn't look like he took his usual advise (bomb, bomb, bomb) and he got rid of him. Look, even a broken clock is right twice a day, but when he's right, we shouldn't be afraid to acknowledge it, even if he still is a horrible president. But he hasn't done any wag the dog bullshit...yet. Which is more than can be said about Bush's and even Clinton.

The thing is, he apparently fired him for not enabling Turmp to do whatever the fuck he wants. While I am no fan of Bolton, this turn of events should be troubling to people as it seems to indicate Turmp is starting to take an active interest in foreign policy.

I feel sorry for neither.
Bolton should have known it'd end this way.
As for Trump, its more fuel for the failed re-election fire.

Is this how Fox News keeps their sheeple brainwashed? This is laughable at best
Tucker Carlson: John Bolton Is a ‘Man of the Left’ and One of Trump Admin’s ‘Most Progressive People’

Yeah, because Bolton has a stellar reputation on the left. Just the other day I was talking to my liberal friends and we all agree that Bolton's shit smells like rose petals.

Carlson is such a clown.

Oh man I was going to start speculating about how Fox was going to handle this. I sure hope Tucker doesn't speak for the group. I know Bolton was a Fox contributor in the past, but I have no idea how much sway he has over there. Given his tweet it seems he holds a grudge. I somehow hope his Fox friends use that to turn on Trump, but I'm not sure it's very likely now.

Haha. Trump wants to loosen sanctions on Iran to get a meeting with Rouhani at the UN and Bolton blew a gasket arguing against it. This happened the day before Bolton was fired.

Art of the deal indeed. Lol.

Also the republicans would be all over Tv denouncing Obama as a basically a traitor for negotiating with Iran because that’s what they actually did.

This is even effing nuts for Tucker and that's saying something.

Chuck & Nancy should troll and invite Bolton to the Democratic Party. Maybe offer to meet up with Bolton.


Sadly their troll game is weak
