    So does this mean #PresidentPAB and Rouhabi will be skipping hand-in-hand through the daisies anytime soon?

    Can a hiring be brilliant when the person is ultimately fired and insulted on Twitter?

    Those are two completely separate issues.
    From my pov, he hired him to appease the neocons, and get intel on their "ways", and fired him when he got what he needed.
    He can use it to "prove he was draining the swamp" and keep his base, as well as the lifelong dems who oppose war to meet U.S. objectives over diplomacy and trade.
    HOW he goes about that and it's aftereffects is speculation best left until mid-November 2020.

    They had that little talk with him, showed the angle of the Kennedy assassination that only presidents-elect get to see.

    He thought "you know, John Bolton doesn't seem like such a bad choice after all";)

    I don't have tv bro, and particularly don't follow "politics" regarding what Donald Trump does everyday.
    This generation has been so intellectually diluted, "news" simply copied MTV's The real world in how they keep attention spans.
    In other words, I don't know who's doing what and don't care.
    I'm certainly in no position to judge the credibility or sanity of a guy worth a million times me and found his way to the highest office on earth.

    only problem with that being he did everything he could to get Bolton on board from the outset.

    naming him as a foreign policy advisor during his campaign, to floating him as Sec of State (until some called bullshit & wouldn't confirm), then deputy SoS (Tillerson refused), later finding a position he didn't need confirmed or approved - Nat Safety Advisor.

    I'm not sure he needed much convincing, just the opportunity.

    no pass needed, he was pretty open about it.

    I don't think anyone is (s)elected without already playing ball.
