Thread: What no feelings on Bolton's Ousting?

Hard to believe from this group.

Bolton was a strange pick for Trump from the start. Did he pluck Bolton off of FOX? Bolton is a war hawk, and Trump wants to play with despots like Putin & KJU. Not a match made in heaven. How many of this position has Trump run through - 3???

This position and others...Trump can't keep staff one way or the other. Who would really want to work for a demagogue? How many in acting positions on Trump's watch?

He hasn't been there long enough to do more than figure out where the bathrooms are. Politically I never cared for his hardline views expressed on fox. He had a Cheney-esque quality but it s clear Bolton needed to stick to the Trump agenda.

Does anybody know the statistics for the amount of turnover during the Trump administration compared to that of previous administrations? I was fearful that he had put together a strong and loyal team of supporters back in 2016...I guess not.

In your own words can you really tell us what the Trump agenda is on foreign policy and detail his many successes. Please start with Noth Korea and the many tangible successes realized to benefit South Korea and our interests? Nuclear development has stopped? Missles no longer are being tested? Love letters from KJU to Trump have increased?

I, for one, have lost track of the numerous firings & resignations in every agency to the point it's business as usual for this administration. The lack of replacements isn't hard to fathom. The fewer people around to contradict or guide the Oval Office occupant seems to suit him just fine.

When one is omnipotent there is really no need for a lot of direct reports. Trump is well skilled in so many areas that a flat line managment style works better. He has already told us that he knows more than the generals. We just learned about his expertise in weather forecasting and addressing hurricane directions. His economic / trade wars / tariff skills are off the charts - the greatest in presidential history. Is there anything he can't do and any subject he is not at the brilliance level?

His government service began in 1982 under President Reagan. Yeah, you're right, total Washington outsider.

Well, so far, since inauguration...

2 Secretaries of Defense
2 Acting Secretaries of Defense
2 Secretaries of DHS
2 Acting Secretaries of DHS
2 Secretaries of State
1 Acting Secretary of State
2 CIA Directors
3 Chiefs of Staff
3 National Security Advisors (unprecedented)
2 Acting National Security Advisors

Not a comprehensive list by any means, but those shine the brightest.

"Donald Trump has now had more turnover in his Cabinet in the first two and a half years of his presidency than any of his five immediate predecessors did in their entire first terms."

Looks like he's a great boss to work for. Just ask General James Mattis.

Yes, to his mind, we're extremely lucky to have such brilliance in a single being. No need for all those pesky experts. If only he'd known there were 3 branches of government when he ran; Congress is completely unnecessary & bothersome. Having bumped up against the legal system in business, it wasn't too far-fetched to learn there were 9 justices holding court in DC. Still, all would be so much better if he were the Emperor King. A scepter would be so much more appropriate for his role than a Sharpie.

I kinda lost interest in what incompetent high level persons are leaving and what high level incompetent person is coming in that administration. Whoever the replacement is, they won't be there for long, so why do I care? He goes through advisors faster than he goes through hookers.

A firing in the Trump administration? It must be fake news! Or maybe it's just in time to distract from the recent report of already closing in on a TRILLION dollars in deficit spending this year with a few weeks still to go.

Seems I recall that big fat tax break for the already mega rich was supposed to pay for itself. Oh well, we'll just change the subject long enough to shine the media glare on something else and my moronic supporters won't know the difference.

The really good news is Trump will pick some other big thinker, top notch, only the best, brilliant strategist and expert on foreign policy from the very deep bench over at team Fox News and all will be well in the world by the end of September. My money's on Lou Dobb's.
