Trump: Bolton was a ‘dumb maniac’ that thought Middle East intervention was a ‘good thing’

The mainstream media is hyping up Former National Security Adviser John Bolton ahead of his book release on Tuesday, and President Trump has had enough. In an interview with the Daily Caller, Donald Trump went nuclear, exposing the truth about why he was forced to fire Bolton. 

Trump has made it clear from the get-go that one of his goals is to end the “never-ending” wars that the US has been engaged in for decades. Trump said on Sunday that he originally hired Bolton — despite misgivings about Bolton’s hawkish approach to foreign policy — to “hear both sides,” a move he clearly regrets.

“This guy’s a dumb maniac that wants to go to war with any anybody that can breathe,” Trump explained. “And I like to hear all sides, and I like to hear his side.”

Trump pulled no punches in attacking Bolton, who has also made it clear that there is no love lost between the two. Trump remarked that two conversations he had with Bolton in 2018 tipped him off to the conclusion that Bolton was “stupid.”

The Caller reported:

The first occurred shortly after Bolton’s May 2018 appearance on CBS’ “Face The Nation,” during which Bolton floated using the “Libyan model” on North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un.

TRUMP: He made a serious statement. I said, ‘now what does that mean, the Libyan model?’ To me it means one thing. Gaddafi was taken over by a mob, dumped into a sewer, shot a hundred and twenty-eight times, and pissed on.

DAILY CALLER: After he was shot by a NATO aircraft.

TRUMP: Add that to it.

DAILY CALLER: What precipitated Gaddafi getting grabbed by the mob was NATO shooting him with a drone.

TRUMP: I didn’t know that. Well, add that to it. So, Bolton is on television, and I have a good relationship with Kim Jung Un, and I have a representative, right, saying this. Believe me, it was a very bad statement, that you know they put out a statement right after. I said, ‘maybe they didn’t see it.’ They did. About five minutes later, they put out a very strong statement and then right after that I was with him and said, ‘why did you make that statement?’ He said, ‘I wasn’t referring,’ and I said, ‘there’s only one thing you can refer to.’

The incompatibility between Bolton’s interventionist foreign police outlook and Trump’s anti-war stance became crystal clear in another conversation between the two in 2018 in which Bolton told Trump that going into the Middle East was a “good thing.”

“I said, ‘so going into the Middle East was that a good thing or a bad thing?’” Trump told the Caller. “[Bolton] said, ‘I think it was a good thing,’ I said, ‘you cannot be serious about that.’ It’s the most tragic mistake our country ever made.”

  1. Absolutely YES! Prez Trump should have had his barber trim that Bolton mustache, so he/we could all see the Lying Lips
    Move! There was a time when I respected both Old Uncle Joe Biden & Uncle John Bolton! It’s indeed time for these work horses to go out to pasture & chew on “Green crud”l Save the
    Green grass for 😕”We The People”, Hillary’s Deplorables!🤪

  2. If you don’t post my comments, then why should I read your
    Contents! I use good judgment & 78 years of political wisdom!
    Reality is setting in!

  3. I’m still waiting to read my John Bolton reply before I tap the unsubscribe button!😜J you lie! I didn’t already say this! U prove it!

  4. Bolton is back stabber. So is John Edward’s so called governor of Louisiana. He has lied to the federal government about COVID trying to get federal funds. Please Mr Trump look into this Obama puppet and his screwing of La. citizens.

  5. Yes firingt ohn Bolton was the right thing to do. Just what the agonist has tried to do with his bad,bad book. Thank you so much mr. President for making America great again. God bless you and your family.

  6. without knowing anything about the situation at the time how could anyone, even the press make comments. should this be true Bolton should be locked up for 100 years but for some dumb reason it never happens does it

  7. Yes he should have fired him but better he should never have hired him in the first place, He received some bad intel on him from someone.

  8. Of course Trump should have fired Bolton. However Bolton should not have got a book published pertaining to any official business. Basically shows he is scorn by the Trump administration and out for revenge. He’s always been a war monger.

    1. Yes.President Trump did the right thing firing Bolton. The only thing I’m sorry for, that Bolton wasn’t fried sooner.

    2. President Trump is right going into the Middle East was a stupid thing to do. All it has accomplished is the death of thousands of soldiers. The Seal Team could have taken Osma Bin Laden without the USA getting involved in Afghanistan and Iraq. George Bush 2 sent troops into Iraq to finish what he his father didn’t finish in the Gulf War. Not something that should have been done. Iraq has been in turmoil ever since. Russia tried for 10 years to obliterate the Taliban in Afghanistan before they pulled out the USA has been there for 18 years with our military and contractors dying every year time yo bring them home.

  9. Bolton was always a war monger he got rich from weapons manufacturers that paid him big bucks and when Trump first hired him I said look out he will start a war with Iran if given the chance the president better control him and he did now he’s lost and full of resolve to get back at the POTUS yes it was a big mistake hiring him but at least he stoped him from starting a war
    TRUMP. 2020—2024 SEMPER FI. U.S.M.C.

  10. Personally, I never understood why he put Bolton into his administration to begin with. Bolton has been a warmonger for as long as I can remember him. I use to at least respect him because he stood firm in his beliefs even when everyone else was against him, but when you have a boss, you go along with the boss or you find somewhere else to work. The first time I heard Bolton speak about wanting to esculate things in the middle East, I knew the poop was about to hit the fan because Trump was trying to get our troops out of that hell hole and Bolton was totally against it. It only esculated from there and I knew Bolton’s time was short. I was so glad the day I heard Trump had fired him. Not one day too soon, maybe a few days too late. Give him hell Trump.

  11. Yes, he made the right call, but should have NEVER brought, this sob into the White House, and his Administration!
    Bolton, has been, and always will be a disgusting, human being, he is only for, what I can do for myself, type of louse. He should, never ever be part of a Republican Administration, just get a load of his, always, manipulating, just check out his devious face. President Trump, gave him a chance, to redeem himself, instead, he betrayed.
    DOJ has plans for this guy, we’ll see, what happens, maybe, he needs to save the money from his book sale, for
    attorneys, he may need soon………….

  12. Bolton is a neo-con like Hillary and Obama and all they want is the world in turmoil so they can profit off of it.

  13. HA HA HA HA HA HA!!
    BOLTON IS AN IDIOT!! BUT MR TRUMP IS THE BOSS!! YOU DO WHAT THE BOSS TELLS YOU TO DO!! ( but boss, sir i think we should bomb the hell out of them!!) NNNNOOOOOOOOOO!! WE WILL TALK TO THEM AND SIMMER THEM DOWN A LITTLE!! MAYBE PLAY SOME GOLF TOO!!
    MR BOLTON YOU ARE FIRED!! BY BY!!!

  14. BOLTON IS A PAIN IN EVERYONES BEHIND. ALL THE CANCEL CULTURE AND GROUPS AND PC BS MUST BE DESTROYED, FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE. EVERYONE FOR TRUMP AND AMERICA,MUST RESIST THE PC BS. STAND TOGETHER,STAND STRONG, DONT PUSSIFUY YOURSELF. WE ARE MORE THAN THEM.DESTROY THE DESTROYERS.

  15. Bolton has his own agenda that he was and still is following. He never should have been hired, but that is hindsight .
    Bolton used his time in the White House to gather information. He knew all along that he would be fired shortly, so he was making plans for his book from day one and collecting any information he could get or manufacture.
    Now, having been fired and humiliated, he is angry with Trump and wants to “get even” as any two year old does, so he made his book as derogatory toward Trump as possible and, with the aid of the Democrats, set the publication and release dates where they would be the most harmful to Trump’s campaign.
    Bolton has prostituted himself to the Democrat party.

  16. Cheryl stated above…..”Yes getting tired of all these evil people”. That says it Totally – All the “TRUE” American People, who acknowledge the Values of America and want good police assistance & enforcement are simply and totally TIRED of all the C_ _ _.!!!…..That is Going On. President Trump, along with at least the Smarter – Governors and Mayors of the States & Cities…..Better get a handle on things or the Volcano – IS GOING TO ERUPT and it isn’t going to be Good..!!!

  17. Bolton was too much of a War Hawk and thought that we should blast any country that did not agree with us. The President was correct in his firing of this individual.

  18. From the beginning, Bolton seem to lack the mentality of the present. He seemed to be outdated and have the mentality of many years ago. He seemed to fit in the Korean War, Vietnam War time. If the United States is not flexing its muscles he is totally disillusioned. Sorry, Bolton, you need to take a backseat now.

  19. Yes our President was right, he can fire anyone he wants. He should fire anyone that is not on his side or got his back.

  20. Iris says,
    Yes Bolton should have been fired. He is stupid and was just trying to get a war started to make money off of the guns he would have sold to the
    Enemy. Just think about it . Selling guns to our enemies to kill our own soldiers.
    Bolton is pure evil. Soooo glad President Trump fired Bolton and should have looked into who ever suggest him.
