    You called it. Bolton is in.

    Like I said before, forget the popcorn (unless you want to get the buttered popcorn Jelly Belly jellybeans)...

    ... This requires nachos.

    Well ****. I’m watching my own worst nightmares come true in real time.

    I didn’t think I was going to be wrong when I posted about Bolton last week, but I REALLY hoped I would be.

    Next up is Tom Cotton for CIA Director, after the current nominee goes down in flames.

    You ready for another war America? I ask because we’re going to start one.

    Trump is the biggest disaster in Presidential history post-Civil War.

    I don't even know why liberals hate him so much. If anything, it should be his supporters that trash him.

    At this point I don't even care if the Dems take over the House and impeach him.

    To call Trump a clown is an insult to clowns (RIP Bozo the Clown who died today).

    Hey, remember when the Trumpsters said that Trump would drain the swamp from Deep State Iraq-warmongers?

    And remember last week when this McMaster-Bolton shuffle was denied by Sanders?

    AIPAC's control over the government may be too much to handle.

    It would've been the same had Jeb! or Clinton won, but you're right - this is a disaster. To be honest, I always knew Trump was a disaster but thought he'd be better than Jeb! or Clinton.

    Now we know who leaked details of that Putin call. Just last week Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the news reports were wrong and there would be no changes at NSC. Today the WH spin is this has been in the works for a while. You can’t believe anything they say.

    So is he still considered a 3 Star general or does he become ex-military now that he’s been fired?

    It truly doesn't matter who we vote in. If AIPAC wants its wars, they will get them.

    Democrat, Republican, all the same. Remember the Iraq War had bipartisan support.

    I heard that to take him back he would need 4 star, but there is no opening.

    It is looking like #45 caused the premature retirement of another person.

    UPDATE:
    JayMsyt posted the answer
    "McMaster will also retire from the U.S. Army, in which he has served for 34 years, he said in a statement."

    So yeah, another career cut short.

    Rubio just endorsed Bolton. That right there should make the #MAGA crowd unhappy but they’ll support it because they’ll support anything Trump does short of repealing the 2nd amendment.

    He may have been fired as NSD but he retired in good standing as an officer.

    NSD is not a military role. It's a political appointment. Separate from the military.

    Interesting that this happens just as Trump sells the Saudis $1 billion in arms, including nearly 7000 missiles.

    I'm browsing this thread on the_donald:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/The_Donald/comments/86fphf/i_am_pleased_to_announce_that_effective_4918/

    Their denial acrobatics are pathetic beyond words.

    Trump has just announced an increase in military funding. He has now taken in Bolton. I suspect Mattis is next to go. The writing is on the wall, the drums of war are beating.

    Yup.. aged as well as a year old rat trap and cockroaches buzzing around a restaurant freezer on an episode of Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares.

    In 45 world, such statements are only as good until next tweet.
    That is, as fast as the internet can deliver a tweet.
