“John Bolton out as Trump’s 3rd national security adviser

“Trump says he fired him last night, Bolton says he offered to resign”

 

There has been speculation about this coming for a while, but I tended to doubt it.

It comes as one little piece of good news in the midst of a ferocious storm of bad news.

Bolton is arrogant, violent, extremely prejudiced, and just plain hateful.

But then those same words characterize a great deal of Trump’s administration and indeed much of the Washington establishment.

Response to a comment:

Given Trump’s propensity for flip-flopping and turning around on a dime and for chaotic behavior, I am not sure we can make anything much out of Bolton’s departure.

Other than the likelihood that he annoyed Trump once too often with his own monstrously sick ego.

Response to a comment asking why a man like Bolton was ever appointed:

Here’s why, and it this fact that makes me surprised Trump dismissed Bolton:

Response to a comment saying, “Tulsi for secretary of state:”

I’d like to see her as President, or indeed in any major office, but there is no chance at all.

She’s the only Washington politician who speaks to the dark overseas activities of America’s establishment, which is why they hate her.

Trump, on the other hand, faithfully, if noisily, serves that same establishment.

Nasty pieces of work like Pompeo and Bolton and Pence and Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, are the polar opposites of Gabbard, but they are the ones who get the jobs.

Trump resembles a television set with only one channel, one turned on 24 hours-a-day to a network called I ME MY.

I agree, but the emphasis must very much be on that word “little.”

The Oval Office today is a madhouse, literally, overcrowded with raving inmates.
