Gosh, just a few days ago Trump backers were saying those 4 or 5 sources mentioned by the Washington Post were wrong claiming McMasters was gone, that they trusted what Sanders and the White House said instead.

True believers, those in the cult of personality: you own any wars Bolton and Trump start. I'm sure you're ready to enlist to fight in it. Am I right?

This is great news.

No disrespect to (fired employee), but if you dont see eye to eye with the boss then you have to show them the door. I've had to do it myself a time or two. Not pretty, but necessary.

Now we can finally get (hired employee) in there to carry out Trump's true vision. A total victory.

Gosh, just a few days ago Trump backers were saying those 4 or 5 sources mentioned by the Washington Post were wrong claiming McMasters was gone, that they trusted what Sanders and the White House said instead.

They be claiming this is not a surprise as there were rumors of it happening, forgetting they were just deriding those rumors as baseless. See that doublethink in action?

This is great news.

Lmao! ROFL. Kuddos! Oh my . . . Don't even go there, I know you didn't just say that. No wonder Dems keep flipping Republican seats. But what about FDR? Things are picking up on the second Special Counsel front. Blah, blah, blah.

And once again, bad goes to worse.

McMaster occasionally told The Dotard that he was being stupid, so he's out, replaced by a man with almost as much rabid foam on his face as the Shrieking Orangutan Himself.

Never think there is a hitting bottom with Trump. There is no bottom.

23 ( +25 / -2 )

What did anyone expect him to say?

4 ( +5 / -1 )

The White House is like a duck shooting gallery firing McMaster less than a week after praising him and replacing him with a Bolton from the past. Strange days.

16 ( +18 / -2 )

Well, Kelly will be next I guess. Not looking forward to who will replace him though.

17 ( +18 / -1 )

And once again, bad goes to worse.

No, it went from bad to great.

McMaster occasionally told The Dotard that he was being stupid,

He didn’t say that, now, now, now...

so he's out, replaced by a man with almost as much rabid foam on his face as the Shrieking Orangutan Himself.

Which she has every right to do and he has to right to have people in his corner that serve his interest and the problem is he did not feel that McMaster and him saw eye to eye on a lot of foreign issues. If the establishment doesn’t like it, if the Democrats don’t like it, and if the Trump haters don’t like it.....doesn’t matter one bit.

Never think there is a hitting bottom with Trump. There is no bottom.

Thank heavens.

This is just entertaining to watch at this point. Nothing surprises or really shocks anymore. This burning clown car of a presidency keeps careening down the road, smashing into things, and catching them on fire.

Down with the establishment! Never mind how it's done or the consequences. Down with the establishment!

Trump is going to Fox news for his administration. This is incredible. And Bolton is a superhawk. This is dangerous.

The new national security Advisor was instrumental in starting a War based on false intelligence (probably not the term to use) so his past history would give reason for doubt as to his suitability for this role. Luckily as there have been 3 advisers in 14 months he has a short window of opportunity to start killing young Americans in a war based on lies.

7 ( +10 / -3 )

Bolton is a deranged war criminal who should be standing alongside Bush and Blair in the dock of the International Criminal Court charged with war crimes and crimes against humanity.

Hurry up Mr. Mueller and get these mentalists out of the White House before they start World War Three.

18 ( +22 / -4 )

Bolton is a fool....

14 ( +17 / -3 )

The PNAC madness is upon us once more with the dread return of John Bolton. I know Hollywood gets a lot of stick for originality and recycling but the White House has outdone itself in the crap ideas stakes.

This is the man who pressed for war on Iraq (something that Trump claims he was against) and would like nothing better than to see military action against the DPRK.

Horrifying.

No, quite the opposite. The other countries need to worry, seriously worry.

It's like watching a kid have a tantrum in the nursery and then a whole bunch of kids join in.

How low can Trump and his supporters go?

With Bolton's reappearance, and their delight, I can only conclude that they are anti-American with their wish to see the US implode.

McMaster was one of the only sensible ones in his inner circle so this isn’t a good sign.

Although it’s not all bad news, we do need a hawk on NK, and not delicate appeasing morons like most NK useful idiots want. So in this sense this is good news as it’s game over for NK now

6 ( +12 / -6 )

I’m sure it would be fine with liberals if he hired from CNN. What’s that Don Lemon guy doing?

Bolton is hardline on Russia. Isn’t anti-Russia the most important thing in the world other than Stormy Daniels right now?

-9 ( +6 / -15 )

On March 1, Michael Anton, spokesman for the National Security Council said, "I was just with President Trump and H.R. McMaster in the Oval Office. President Trump said that the NBC News story is 'fake news,' and told McMaster that he is doing a great job.”

Even now with steps towards peace, why would having Bolton installed be a good thing?

No, they are very pro-American, that’s the reason why the President choose them. Good on him. Love Bolton. The more the left has a meltdown, the more I think it’s a fantastic decision.

Unfortunately for Trump fans, some people here are concerned about the state of your country and the increasingly shambolic appointments/firings and resignations. This is rapidly becoming a tinpot dicatatorship. How on earth could anyone be proud of it & cheer it on?

No, they are very pro-American, that’s the reason why the President choose them. Good on him. Love Bolton. The more the left has a meltdown, the more I think it’s a fantastic decision.

If a person loves someone because he creates controversy and is pro-war, it doesn't say very much for the state of politics in the US.

No, the appointment signals the disappearance of the last traces of any sanity within the White House.

This exemplifies everything that's wrong with Trump supporters. They themselves admit they have no desire to make the US a better country; they simply want to cause maximum suffering to their fellow Americans who happen to have different views. Truly a nihilistic cult of destruction lacking any sort of moral compass.

Next? Kelly. But Session needs to be careful. He was not aware Mcbe already prepared perjury text on him when he fired Mc.

There will be more change. Later Sanders. Trump is not happy because she did not cover his sex scandal.

@blackL Isn’t anti-Russia the most important thing in the world other than Stormy Daniels right now?

It’s clear the notion of complexity is a difficult one to handle for those who view politics from a polar standpoint and ignore all points in-between, i.e. most Trump supporters. However, most reasonable people are able to see that’s not the case. Most reasonable people don’t need to oversimplify things in order to better understand them.

But thanks for re-reminding us of the concerns most reasonable people have for the Trump = Russia issues. And thanks, too, for re-reminding us of Trump’s deplorable history. All the many worrying issues related to Trump need to have more attention paid to them.

Is this the Fox ‘news’ you’re talking about?

Ralph Peters (born April 19, 1952) is a retired United States Army lieutenant colonel and author added: “When prime-time hosts — who have never served our country in any capacity — dismiss facts and empirical reality to launch profoundly dishonest attacks on the FBI, the Justice Department, the courts, the intelligence community (in which I served) and, not least, a model public servant and genuine war hero such as Robert Mueller — all the while scaremongering with lurid warnings of ‘deep-state’ machinations — I cannot be part of the same organization, even at a remove. To me, Fox News is now wittingly harming our system of government for profit.”

bass4funk: "Which she has every right to do and he has to right to have people in his corner that serve his interest..."

HIS interests, yes, which are simply lining his pockets with as much money as possible (not yours pockets, but your money, too!), and soothing his fragile ego. He's certainly not acting on behalf of the people of the US.

"No, they are very pro-American, that’s the reason why the President choose them."

No, he "choose" (sic) them because they are even more of yes-men than those who have been fired or reshuffled. They are sycophants who will get down and kiss the ring before going up his backside nose first, just like the people who called him "lunatic" pre-election, but kiss his butt post.

No one wants that, but if they don’t denuclearize or continue to threaten the US...diplomacy doesn’t mean anything if it’s not backed by military strength.

Unfortunately for Trump fans, some people here are concerned about the state of your country and the increasingly shambolic appointments/firings and resignations. This is rapidly becoming a tinpot dicatatorship. How on earth could anyone be proud of it & cheer it on?

Many of us can and I cannot disagree enough with you, I applaud the change, Trump is the President and the President has the absolute right to have people at his side that agree, disagree or share a common thinking or wanting similar goals, every single President wants this, so I don’t think he’s doing anything wrong, in fact, I think it's a brilliant idea.

What, for being against war and the implosion of your country? How odd.

I don’t like war either, but I also don’t believe in letting someone punch me in the face and taking it.

If a person loves someone because he creates controversy and is pro-war, it doesn't say very much for the state of politics in the US.

I don't think that the white house has had any sanity during this administration. It's been an absolute mess.

But that said, I think we need to give up on the idea of anything signaling the end of anything with the Trump administration. It's shown itself to be extremely resilient to all sorts of issues that would bring down other administrations. We just need to keep on being persistent with pointing out the administration's faults, but give up on speculation that anything will end it. The only thing that looks to be able to end it are elections. Midterms in November will help put a reign on some of the administrations power, and in two years, we can get a new president. In the meantime, we just have to be persistent in pointing out the fallacies of this administration, so that the voters don't forget just how bad Trump's administration is.

@bas4 I don’t like war either, but I also don’t believe in letting someone punch me in the face and taking it.

Oh, those sweet nothings Bolton will be whispering in Trump's ear. Another wide stride closer to war with Iran and NK.

The terrifying thing is Trump’s habit of just repeating the last thing someone said to him has been observed very clearly. Trump doesn’t know his arse from his elbow on pretty much anything of substance and doesn’t seem particularly interested in finding out either.

The idea of the walrus of death painting on a black canvas is horrifying.

6 ( +7 / -1 )

Even now with steps towards peace, why would having Bolton installed be a good thing?

Because we know that the useful idiots around the world will try to appease and derail the upcoming talks as much as possible, so it is absolutely essential that the Allied side has only hawks and tough negotiators who are willing to end talks with NK immediately if demands aren't met. Only an enemy would support appeasement of NK.

The world has woken up to the malignant cancer that exists in all developed nations that is the useful idiot, so uneducated and gullible they are easily manipulated by hostile foreign powers as if they were puppets. Most thought it impossible that useful idiots for NK could exist in educated societies, however the treasonous fawning and swooning during the Olympics put that idea permanently to rest. That was a fatal mistake by the useful idiot, and that will not happen ever again.

Trump is an ignoramus about practically every issue he has to deal with. At the same time he's got a head full of preposterous ideas and an ego to match. The Trump presidency is all about Trump getting his way. It has boiled down to a battle between those who are trying to contain the president's worst impulses (and thereby risk losing favor with him), and those who tell him what he wants to hear, propping up his ego. Some of these people are moronic sycophants (especially in the House, e.g. the Freedom Caucus, Nunes). Others are fairly intelligent professionals with very dangerous agendas (e.g. Bolton, Pompeo, Kelly, Sessions, Pruitt, Pence).

"All former Bush administration officials should have zero standing on Syria. Iraq was a waste of blood & treasure."

--Donald Trump, September, 2016

Now Trump has one of these officials advising him on national security: Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, North Korea. Perhaps Trump has "evolved" on the issues? Nah, he just spouts whatever crap makes him feel good at the moment.

What worries me is that even Trump supporters won’t be comfortable with some possible future positions, but they will be too afraid of being ostracized to speak out. They are too emotionally tied to Trump and they think his wins are their wins and his losses are their losses.

With each resignation and termination these people cheer more. It’s all roses in their world, all the time. If they disagree, they will play along anyway. They I’ll change their views on the spot so they can agree with Trump.

I just don’t see how they can back out at this point. It would be too personally humiliating.

I take that to mean you expect other people to do the fighting for you.

I assume you understand that wars are nasty, hideous, ugly things, and if you recognize that, do you really think others should be killed for your and for a minority of people's beliefs?

If warmongers want war, they should have the courage of their convictions and be the ones doing the fighting. Not being a paid media soundman, not spending time in the rear with the gear, but out on the front lines.

I agree the Russia collusion investigations should not stop. It's worrying that the president of the US, members of his family, and members of his cabinet might be working to undermine the US and allow a foreign power to influence political decisions.

Trump 'evaded' military service. Bolton skated through. Do Trump supporters really trust them playing brinksmanship games?

Trump made his own 'bed' with Stormy and the many other women he's alleged to have been involved with.

Those of us who prefer peace to armageddon will continue to clamour for dialogue and less chest-thumping.

If that means shaking hands with unpleasant people, so be it. I'm not sure who was being treasonous during the Olympics, though. Could you elaborate?

Maybe Trump is being treasonous for accepting a meet with KIm?

Despite my misgivings about your PotUS, I hope the talks go ahead and that Bolton does not have the President's ear.

if all else fails and any of our adversaries threaten us, try to strike or attack us and our allies, of course we should go to war.

Unfortunately we had none of those excuses for Iraq. We just wanted someone to pay for 9-11, and in our bloodlust, Saddam made a convenient (but wrong) target.

We're still paying for that hubris. I'd love it if we didn't make that mistake again.

If Democrats don’t stop playing identity politics, we will only win the popular vote by 2.5 million in the next election.

If, the problem is, liberals are getting so over the top radical with their policies, they can’t keep that momentum. 1000 lost legislative seats is No joke.

Nah, inside word is that Trump didn't like that McMaster didn't laugh or even acknowledge the jokes he'd make during McMaster's national security briefings.

Inside word? Who was that? Maddow? Hayes? How about Ana Navarro? ROFL

Why you guys love gossip so much is beyond me.

You actually believe Trump has solid stances on foreign issues? P

I do and he has been on many issues since the 80’s and besides, he can evolve, he doesn’t have to be rigid like the last President

Liberals are not radical in the slightest. It's surprising how some commentators fail to grasp this.

They wish to maintain the status quo, just not as nakedly as the Republicans do.

What was the Iraq War about again?

2006 Lancet study, and the 2007 Opinion Research Business survey, put the numbers as high as 650,000 and 1.2 million respectively,

or the 20 million people killed by America in 37 victim countries since the end of the World Wars.

Bolton supports all of that. He has recently called for war with both Iran and North Korea. It that sending the right message?

Bolton's history suggests a long and storied history of cherry- picking intelligence to support his preferred hawkish policies. 

Bolton, a warmonger but never a soldier.

Ladies and gentleman.

Quotes by John Bolton-

People say you favor assassination, what do you think war is? Except that it's assassination on a much larger scale, a much more horrific scale.- War monger.

A lot of people have said to me, 'That's a great idea, running for president. You'll get booked for more speeches. You can write a book.'-Greed and power hungry.

I've been in the government bureaucracy, I've practiced law, I've done a lot of different things.-Egotistical maniac.

I think the International Criminal Court could be a threat to American security interests, because the prosecutor of the court has enormous discretion in going after war crimes. And the way the Statute of Rome is written, responsibility for war crimes can be taken all the way up the chain of command.- I need immunity.

There is no such thing as the United Nations.- Anti Establishment.

Welcome to the mind of Mr. John Bolton. My fellow reader's and expats. Prepare yourselves for the worst of it to come. Have followed politics for a long time and have helped manage campaigns at a young age in Manchester N.H.

This is scariest political landscape I have ever seen in my lifetime.

I am a Republican and not one of those wishy washy ones either. But the current sitting President is a complete an utter scary moron. I am really seriously doubting his ability anymore to be POTUS. Impeach.

The election of non political professional experiment was a huge mistake. I admit that now.

Yep and you will lose again as popular vote is irrelevant to how you keep the score needed to “win”

A) Popular vote is not "irrelevant."

B)Good on you for conceding you're not actually interested in representative Democracy, just as long as you can cram your views down the throats of others.

C) So, let me get this straight: the deep state is real and hates Trump, but they 'let' him win anyways and will let him win again? Riiiggghhg

D) It doesn't matter how many people believe in Santa, he's still not real. Same with the deep state.

That's not what was meant by this:

Trump is going to Fox news for his administration. This is incredible. And Bolton is a superhawk. This is dangerous.

Asserting so is demonstrating an utter lack of rhetorical skills. What was meant was that Dumpster Fire Donny should be recruiting professionals, not boot licking yes people.

A) If its not how you keep score, its just another statistic in the game. You dont win the game if your Free Throw percentage is higher.

B) Where is the legislation from Dems to abolish the electoral college? Oh force things down throats like when the last guy created DREAMers because he knew the elected representatives of the people wouldnt make it a law?

C) They didnt "let" him win, that is why they are doing all these things now to prevent any recurrences in the future. Why all the social media crackdowns going on to prevent conservative messages from being broadcast. Deep state thought Twitter comments would run Trump and though they had Facebook support and data in the bag for only the Dems. oops.

D) Except it is. All the people spying and unmasking and abusing FISA will be identified and held accountable. then we will know what was done to our democracy, and it wasnt Russians.

Interviewed on TV this morning he quoted the old roman saw of "If you want peace, prepare for war".  which says it all.

As much as all these morons offer that quote, you will note that the Roman Republic and then Empire was at almost constant war throughout its existence.  Because preparing for war engenders reasons to go to war........

My guess is we see a lot more tension and economic volatility in the world.

It seems like Trump's lead lawyer, John Dowd, resigned today too due to differences in strategy. Apparently Dowd wasn't aggressive enough against the special council investigation. Because you have to be aggressive when you're innocent.

I have a question to Trump supporters, will you guys finally see reason if Trump fires Mueller? Not saying it'll happen, but it does seem more likely everyday, and I'm starting to worry that the GOP is going to let him get away with it.

Other networks have journalists and commentators with experience and some balance to their opinions. I don't see many extremists as their outside commentators unless they are getting someone from the Trump camp.

Also, Fox is just a propaganda machine.

Chris Wallace is ashamed of the "opinion side" of Fox being passed off as news to viewers.

The Dems used the Cambridge Analytics long before Trump came on the scene. Nice try.

Nice "what about" argument.

Trump used CA to suss out his isolationist messages and create fear in American voters. There is a commonality with the Russian operations.

Bannon was on the board of directors, knew all about their tactics and operations.

Giuliani's law firm wrote a legal opinion concluding that using Cambridge Analytics was illegal, but Bannon and Trump ignored the legal advice.

Cambridge Analytics used a Russian as a front to collect information from Facebook.

Mueller is interested in all of this and is asking questions. Dohhh.

He is not a king, he is not an emperor, and he most certainly is not God. Trump is not even remotely putting the his responsibility of POTUS in the best interests of the people of the US (and I mean ALL US citizens, not just the select few that believe that the country runs just for them....)

He elects a bad administration, keeps getting rid of them for the slightest perception of disagreements for what he wants to do.

No, we’ve been through this before, we are talking about the FBI. Stop and pause for a moment, I know the left are in a shark feeding frenzy fest and want blood, but in all seriousness, the FBI generally speaking are good at what they do, if there was any collusion whatsoever or that the president was engaged in any wrongdoing, it would’ve been out there and it would’ve been known by now, you have 22 democratic witch hungry lawyers after the president iover a year now and still nothing, Mueller has to try to find something to justify his purpose of being there, with all the money tax money being spent and then you can’t find something or anything....how that reflect upon him?

The FBI is good. That we haven't been given evidence yet that the president was engaged in wrongdoing doesn't mean he wasn't engaged in wrongdoing because the investigations haven't been concluded.

Conservatives: The investigations into Trump have been going on so long that we would have heard if he engaged in wrongdoing.

Liberals: That's not what you said about Hillary. You kept launching investigation after investigation and now want more investigations.

Comservatives: That's completely different.

Riiiiight.

 you have 22 democratic witch hungry lawyers after the president iover a year now and still nothing

It has t been a year yet. Get your facts straight. Additionally, there is absolutely no way you know whether Mueller's team has found anything.

Mueller has to try to find something to justify his purpose of being there, with all the money tax money being spent and then you can’t find something or anything..

The multiple indictments and guilty pleas Mueller has secured contradict this statement.
