    Agreed. It was, however, a really poor way of handling the situation. AGAIN.
    I don't like Bolton, but twittering his firing etc. is just low class.

This really is an important job considering the most powerful man in the world surrounded himself with the likes of Steve Bannon and Omarosa Manigault whose only purpose was to stir shit and inflame tensions. It was a job in which she made close to $200K/year at age 28...a shitload more than the teachers who ridiculed her.

    I may have a soft spot since several teachers made fun of me in HS. I enjoy checking in on them from time to time...
    To be totally fair, she seemed perfectly nice (enough) in my interactions with her. I mostly find it funny because I went to a very wealthy and high-performing public HS in the NYC area, and many of my classmates have gone on to successful careers in business, finance, medicine, law, etc. Our AP HS history teacher used to say that our class would be running the country one day. Little did he know that the first person to make it into the white house from our class was not taking AP anything at all...

    Steve Bannon was the guy that got Trump elected. Trump took Bannon's ideas and ran with those. Trump had the personality to pull it off but it was Bannon who outlined the campaign strategy. Bannon still speaks highly of Trump. He just didn't like the idiot family that Trump surrounded himself with. Omarosa...well she just looked the part, nothing going on upstairs. Unfortunately Trump has surrounded himself with idiots. He fired (or they resigned) all of the competent players. The list is long. That will be his demise.

    Bolton is a dolt. Good riddance.

    With Bolton goes William Happer. That name may not be familiar, but he was an important force on the NSC who opposed climate extremism from progressives still embedded in the Defense and National Security apparatus. We needed physicists with his credentials as a voice of reason against those who would use climate extremism as the foundation for national security policy.

    Turnover in the Trump Administration

    I’m convinced that Trump wants to release “The Art of the Deal Part 2” or “The State of the Deal” or something like that as his legacy after the presidency, and he wants to make public deals with all of our enemies (North Korea, Taliban, etc.) just so he can write about it, despite what all of his National Defense Council, Military, Intelligence Services and Cabinet Members advise him to do.

    People like Mattis and Bolton are just getting in the way of his legacy.
