Amidst the ongoing Coronavirus crisis in the United States, which has claimed the lives of over 190,000 Americans as of early Monday, President Donald Trump is focused on… complaining about his former national security adviser, John Bolton. The ex-official has publicly broken with Trump following his unceremonious departure from the White House, and he has written a book about his experiences on the Trump team in which he lays out his perspective on the president’s belligerence. On Monday, Trump took issue with Bolton’s characterization of his relationship to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, although Trump himself is the one who originally claimed that he and Kim “fell in love.”

Trump tweeted:

‘Just heard that Wacko John Bolton was talking of the fact that I discussed “love letters from Kim Jong Un” as though I viewed them as just that. Obviously, was just being sarcastic. Bolton was such a jerk!’

Again — Trump’s the one who originally said that he “fell in love” with Kim. That’s a quote! Is Trump implying that folks should just not take him seriously at just about any point? (That obviously wouldn’t be a bad idea, considering Trump’s incessant lies.) He can’t just expect to claim he was “joking” — or whatever — and thereby become free from whatever problem he’s made for himself. He used the same tactic after suggesting exploring injecting household disinfectants as a potential Coronavirus treatment method, but he definitely did not seem to be joking at the time of his original comments.

Months ago, around the time of the release of his memoir, Bolton did say the following:

‘[Trump] said that… back in the day, as they say, he always wanted to be the one who broke up with the girl first. He didn’t want the girl to break up with him. And he used that to describe whether he would cancel the summit with Kim Jong-un first or whether we would risk the North Koreans canceling it. And I thought it was an insight into the president, candidly given, that showed how he approached this.’

On Monday, Trump also posted some drivel about the economy, including a false suggestion that Democratic presidential pick Joe Biden would raise taxes across the board. In fact, he does not plan to raise taxes on anyone making under $400,000 a year.
