Why Trump picked Bolton as the new National Security Advisor
McMaster was widely touted as one of the “adults in the room” keeping Trump on the leash. No one will harbour any such delusions about John Bolton.
To the contrary; this guy needs adult supervision himself, and lots of it.
Bolton has been consistent throughout his career in advocating for more bellicosity, more interventions, more sanctions, and more war. He is a true believer in American Exceptionalism. Everything America does is great, and if things don’t work out, as they haven’t in any US military adventure since 1945, it’s never because America was in the wrong.
Instead, it’s because American leadership has been tripped up by a traitorous media, the UN, pinko liberals, etc etc etc…
Now he’ll get to whisper vile somethings directly into the president’s ear.
