What a farce!
Democrats are actually lamenting that they can’t call John Bolton as a witness! The Republicans reportedly offered a “witness swap,” Bolton for Hunter Biden, and the Democrats folded: Not gonna’ happen, because “Cuppa’ Joe” says so.
And now Trump’s going to get the speedy acquittal everyone’s been predicting for months. (I repeat: what a farce!)
Does anyone need reminding of who John Bolton is? The thug who helped shut-down the vote-counting in Florida 2000! The lifelong warmonger who helped launch the 2003 invasion of Iraq on a bunch of lies! The uber-nationalist who said we don’t need the top ten floors of the United Nations (including the democratic General Assembly and most other nations)! The bully who chased his aide down the hall throwing things at her! The Trump NSA who got fired for trying to get Trump to declare war on nation after nation (unsuccessfully, thank goodness)!
But how perceptions can change when the politics of the parties is reversed, when the Republican leadership becomes “isolationist” and the Democratic leadership becomes neo-McCarthyite banshees after reuniting with the neocons.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the notorious JOHN BOLTON, the latest #Resistance “hero” in the holy crusade to shore up Donald Trump’s base and get him reelected…
Bolton, before Trump fired him: “If I had to say something I knew was false to protect American national security, I would do it.”
Surprisingly, Impeachment Manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was once a vociferous critic of this freshly-minted #Resistance hero: “John Bolton once suggested on Fox News that the Russian hack of the DNC (Democratic National Committee) was a false flag operation that had been conducted by the Obama administration… why we would want someone with that lack of credibility, I can’t understand.”
Schiff today, re: Bolton: “I like him a little more now…”
Donald Trump, re: Bolton: “If it were up to John, we’d be in four wars now.”
(Hey, Impeachment Managers, how about getting someone who isn’t a lying, bullying warmonger for your star witness?)
