John Bolton out

Good. I never cared for him anyways. Plus, he was far too hawkish for a Trump administration.

Best bit of creative headline copy-writing I've seen in a good long time:

He gets hired because he's brilliant but gets fired because he's a tremendous asshole. It's a pattern with John.

Does Trump not pay any fucking attention to his cabinet appointees' political beliefs before making said appointment?

Bolton has always been hawkish. Did Trump suddenly have an epiphany?

No... he saw Bolton spend a few years on Fox News once a week talking shit about Obama. And as we know, anyone that appears on Fox News = brilliant to Trump. So he appoints him knowing nothing about the guy except that he didn't like Obama and that was good enough for Fat Donnie.

Excellent hypothesis; I'm inclined to agree.
