What an interesting time to be alive, experiencing only the third impeachment trial in history. The focus on Donald Trump has caused him to be at his worst now. But wait, should he be exonerated, then the country will be thrown into an even darker time than before.
POTUS went on full-attack mode as he went after his former National Security Adviser (NSA) John (the mustache) Bolton. The former NSA was the most conservative Republican until the right fell off the edge of their party and dropped into the fires of Trumpism.
Bolton has written a tell-all book about his 17-month experience in the Trump administration. The man who has served in four administrations gave a copy of his book to the White House as is normal procedure, checking for national security issues.
Someone there made copies of the manuscript and started leaking them in the midst of the commander-in-chief’s impeachment hearing. That shook the GOP-led Senate to its core. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) wanted a quick trial: no witnesses, no evidence.
He did not anticipate 75 percent of America wanting to see a real trial. Now, McConnell has found himself in a bind with Bolton volunteering to be a witness. At this point, the senator did not have a majority vote to shut down the trial.
The man ccasionally in the Oval Office was at his full Tumpist worst against one of the most conservative Republicans in decades. He hit the guy “who couldn’t get approved” as U.N. ambassador with a mid-trial tweet:
‘For a guy who couldn’t get approved for the Ambassador to the U.N. years ago, couldn’t get approved for anything since, “begged” me for a non Senate (sic) approved job, which I gave him despite many saying “Don’t do it, sir,” takes the job, mistakenly says “Libyan Model” on T.V., and..’
After that, the president tweeted that Bolton would have taken the country to “World War Six:”
‘….many more mistakes of judgement, gets fired because frankly, if I listened to him, we would be in World War Six by now, and goes out and IMMEDIATELY writes a nasty & untrue book. All Classified National Security. Who would do this?’
Next, Trump claimed Bolton was “very publicly terminated:”
‘Why didn’t John Bolton complain about this “nonsense” a long time ago, when he was very publicly terminated. He said, not that it matters, NOTHING!’
At this time, Trump sent out another Twitter bomb claiming the House Democrats had not done their job and were unfair. This, after the president ordered a halt to any witnesses and even one document:
‘Remember Republicans, the Democrats already had 17 witnesses, we were given NONE! Witnesses are up to the House, not up to the Senate. Don’t let the Dems play you!’
Twitter world went crazy over Trump’s attack on his former National Security Adviser John Bolton. Check them out below:
