Walker: No wonder Trump wanted this book stopped and said everything he ever said to Bolton was classified. So many scandals hitting in one day. For any other President revelations like all these we are getting today would be the end of his presidency, for us it's a Wednesday.

Somehow, he proves to be more and more despicable - every. single. day.

LOL ... I have seen gleeful cries of "OMG we got him now!" too many times over the past 3.5 years to believe it will ever actually turn out that way.

He has to shoot his own credibility in both feet multiple times before his angry, motivated base will ever turn on him.

markie_farkie: aaronx: According to the Republicans in the Senate, it isn't a problem when he does this.

We have a Republican problem in the Senate that is more dangerous, really, than the idiocy and narcissism problems we have in the West Wing. The narcissistic idiot in the White House is also incompetent and lazy, which somewhat mitigates that threat.

It's dereliction of duty on the Republican Senators' behalf to allow Dump to do stupid shiat that's damaging to our national interests.

It's a crime of omission, and they all need to be voted out when their time for reelection comes.


They were traitors before Trump was even nominated.

Trump should have just imposed absurdly high tariffs on the pandemic. China would have refused to pay and COVID exports would have stopped. Problem solved!

Boo_Guy: LegacyDL: Is there a word or term for someone who doesn't want a job but then decides to take the job and completely do the opposite of the job requirements to the point that they think it was the job they originally signed up for?

I'm betting the Germans have a word for that.

RaptorLC: So Trump assumed Xi was just as impulsive and susceptible to flattery as he is. Not much of a surprise there.


It's like the, "help me help you" see in Jerry Maguire, except with more kneeling and political fellatio.

Forty-Three: NeoCortex42: Forty-Three: I am still having trouble comprehending John Farking Bolton as the guy who does an actual good thing for the country, but here we are...

He still hasn't.

He could have and he chose not to.

He could have, and should have, testified.  This is true.  In normal times that should have been the proper thing to do, but realistically, no matter what happened during the impeachment process, there was no possibility, whatsoever, that there would have been 67 votes in the Senate for removal.  If Mr. Moustache gets to sell some books in a way that also makes it more likely that Trump actually gets removed from office come January, I can live with that.


Agreed. Bolton could have testified at the time that he saw Trump cook a live white baby with a blowtorch and eat it and it would not have mattered at all.  Whatever Bolton's motivations now, these revelations coming at this time do far more damage than they ever could have back then.
 
2020-06-17 5:33:11 PM  

Rev.K: Bolton says he was so alarmed by Trump's determination to do favors for autocrats such as Erdogan and Xi that he scheduled a meeting with Attorney General William P. Barr in 2019 to discuss his behavior. Bolton writes that Barr agreed he also was worried about the appearances created by the president's behavior.

Immediately after the meeting ended, Barr told Trump everything that had happened, then Barr destroyed the cure for AIDS, the vaccine for COVID-19, and burned down a Boeing hangar full of orphan children, disabled puppies, and the original US Constitution.


Barr is a monster. A far more dangerous one than Trump because he's not starting from a baseline of moron and spiralling down into un-hideable cognitive decline, even if he is personally less repulsive.

The *only* concern that bastard had was that it threatened Barr's desire to do all of those things if word got out.

Destructor: Thursday: I believe there's a chance SCOTUS could unleash Trump's IRS tax returns.

That'd be a fun day in the White House.


Is this the Mazars decision or the other one (or both)? If I recall, Mazars is the one that will immediately release the returns as long as SCOTUS rules against Donnie and doesn't stay the decision.

I can't wait!
 
2020-06-17 5:34:55 PM  
We need a Constitutional Amendment requiring all candidates for the Presidency to pass at least a Ninth Grade civics class exam before their name can go on the ballot.  If we'd had that in 2016, Trump would not be President today.

///probably a good idea for Congressional candidates too
 
2020-06-17 5:35:41 PM  
Literally nothing Bolton writes could shock me, nor will it cause Trump to face any consequences for his actions. Talking heads will be outraged for a few days then move on to something else. Republicans will just shrug and say "But her emails!" and continue on their way. That's it, like always.
 
2020-06-17 5:37:40 PM  

Godscrack: People believe this shiat? John Bolton had a chance to do the right thing during the impeachment hearings. Now he wants to make money off a book. Even if it's true, it's not going to hurt Trump.
Summertime entertainment for the feeble minded.


Well, since I've seen your nonsense posted here already about 20 times Imma guess this has been distributed as the official talking point to be played in the opening.   It's not bad, considering what your ilk has to work with right now.  Good luck with all that, I don't envy you trying to walk back the fact that your godhead allied himself with a communist dictator and served up an ethnic minority in exchange for electoral interference on his behalf.

It's like "genocide", but when you hit the "i" instead of the "o" by mistake because you're in a rush and they are right next to each other on the keyboard.

I mean at this point it's gone out to reviewers and advanced reader copies are out, which is how we know about this.

No point trying to delay it, and I think considering it'll probably be available to pirate soon the publisher can show damages if they have to delay.
