Trump unleashes on uber-hawk Bolton!

Says we'd be fighting the whole world at one time if Bolton has his way.

WASHINGTON (PNN) - June 24, 2019 - In a stunningly frank moment during a Sunday Meet the Press interview focused on Fascist Police States of Amerika President Donald Trump's decision-making on Iran, especially last week's "brink of war" moment that saw Trump draw down readied military forces in what he said was a "common sense" move, the Commander-in-Chief threw his own national security advisor under the bus in spectacular fashion.

Though it's not Trump's first tongue-in-cheek denigration of John Bolton's notorious hawkishness, it's certainly the most brutal and blunt take down yet, and frankly just plain enjoyable to watch. When host Chuck Todd asked the president if he was “being pushed into military action against Iran” by his advisers in what was clearly a question focused on Bolton first and foremost, Trump responded:

“John Bolton is absolutely a hawk. If it was up to him he'd take on the whole world at one time, okay?” said Trump.

Trump began by explaining, “I have two groups of people. I have doves and I have hawks,” before leading into this sure to be classic line that is one for the history books. “If it was up to him he'd take on the whole world at one time, okay?”

During this section of comments focused on FPSA policy in the Middle East, the president reiterated his preference that he hear from "both sides" on an issue, but that he was ultimately the one making the decisions.

When pressed on the dangers of having such an uber-hawk neo-conservative who remains an unapologetic cheerleader of the 2003 Iraq War, and who laid the groundwork for it as a member of George Bush's National Security Council, Trump followed with, “That doesn't matter because I want both sides.”

In another clear indicator that Trump wants to stay true to his non-interventionist instincts voiced on the 2016 campaign trail, he explained to Todd, “I was against going into Iraq. I was against going into the Middle East. Chuck, we've spent 7 trillion dollars in the Middle East right now.”

It was the second time this weekend that Trump was forced to defend his choice of Bolton as the nation's most influential foreign policy thinker and adviser. When peppered with questions at the White House Saturday following Thursday night's dramatic "almost war" with Iran, Trump said that he "disagrees" with Bolton "very much" but that ultimately he's "doing a very good job."

Bolton has never kept his career-long goal of seeking regime change in Teheran a secret - repeating his position publicly every chance he got, especially in the years prior to his tenure at the Trump White House.

But Bolton hasn't had a good past week. Not only had Trump on Thursday night shut the door on Bolton's dream of overseeing a major FPSA military strike on Iran, but he's been pummeled in the media.

Even a Fox prime time show (who else but Tucker Carlson of course) colorfully described him as a "bureaucratic tapeworm" that periodically reemerges to cause pain and suffering.
