Good riddance to bad rubbish. We just got a little further away from attacking Iran or NoKo.

I'd hold the applause until I see who Trump is replacing him with.

Will there ever come a day when they say the same about Stephen Miller.

Trump is just as capricious toward bad advisors as he is toward good ones, so we got that going for us, which is nice.

So Donnie refused to declare a shooting war ? Wow.. I didn't think he had that much control. I wonder which of his kids talked him out of it.

The two promises he's made that he's stuck to are building the wall and no war.

War is bad for business unless you are selling weapons.

My personal tinfoil hat theory is that Bolton was behind the effort to spark war with Iran - the drone stuff, the limpet mines, getting Gibraltar to seize the tanker, all that stuff, and nothing came of it.

That’s probably not why Bolton was fired - i’m sure it was something petty, like Bolton letting it be known he was against meeting w the Taliban at Camp David.

Edit: Heh. As soon as the news Bolton was getting canned came out, the market price of a barrel of oil dropped 2.2%. No war in the middle east any time soon, I guess the market said. I’m sure some folks were disappointed.

Not going to happen.
