    But not unsurprising, given Trump (a) hates Muslims and (b) is doing the same thing to Latin Americans.

    couldn't have said it better myself......I guess. :unsure: This could be Bolton trying to sell books but who knows? If he did say it he's wrong no doubt.

    I just told my wife that President Trump hates her. Now she'll vote for Biden I'm sure.

    My post from the other thread on Trump:

    I don't have a lot of use for former Trump officials who "tell all" after they've left office.

    Cowards.

    Stand up and do the right thing when it counts.

    Not when you can make a few bucks.

    (Still doesn't alter my opinion of Trump, and I doubt Bolton's book will change anyone's mind anyway.)

    Paladin's joy seems to be limited to media central these days. And traffic circles.

    He's got it in his "status" line and it's in response to Trump's election.

    Strange that this fizzled out at 13 posts.

    Oh, I see "we're not racist but...", forge threw their ninja smoke pellets into the room.

    Bolton's book seems to have been roundly panned by anyone else who was 'in the room.'

    It will be interesting, however, to see how long it takes the echo chamber to start pointing to it as 'proof' of orange man bad, when before he was NSA Leftforge pretty much tagged him as a lying scumbag, warmongering cunt.

    cleanup on aisle 5!

    We hardly need bolton as proof orange man bad, when we have orange man himself demonstrating it.

    Bolton's book just makes for fun anecdotes on late night TV.

    Clarify - anyone else who was in the room and still works for Trump?

    Because yeah, I have faith in their ability to stand upright without outside assistance.

    He is a lying scumbag warmongering cunt.

    Doesn't mean there's no truth in there, haven't you noticed the trend for people in Trump's inner circle to fall out of favour the moment they criticise him? Have you also not noticed the tendency towards ever more sycophantic advisors? You really expect them to give an honest account?

    So wait, @Shirogayne disagrees that Lebron should speak out against racial injustice in China? You know "no blacks in our restaurants!". Isn't she black? Or only cares about our blacks (except myself)?

    besides trump himself gave it his seal of truthiness when he sued due to security concerns to have it withheld from publishing.

    Bolton had his chance to testify before congress and he didn't. I don't need to pay for him to witness when it does not count. Too late old man, the bus left a while ago.

    Did you see his interview on Colbert? He outright blamed Democrats for why he didn't testify.

    That's the narrative already shaping in their minds: Trump wasn't one of us and it's Democrats fault that we stood by him.

    We've had to bury 120,000 people. No matter how much I might enjoy his misfortune, it's hard to escape the fact that we're all tethered to his corpse.
