BWAHAHA! Trump ***allegedly*** shitcanned Bolton for leaking "Can you nuke a hurricane?"



Bolton strongly disagreed with Trump’s desire to meet with Taliban leaders and his willingness to meet with Iran’s president, but three sources revealed that Trump was angry at Bolton for another reason, reported CBS News.

Those sources, who were directly involved, said Trump was driven to distraction by his belief that Bolton or those close to him had leaked a story about the president asking whether nuclear weapons could be used against hurricanes.

“I got it. I got it. Why don’t we nuke them?” Trump asked, according to one source who was present. “They start forming off the coast of Africa, as they’re moving across the Atlantic, we drop a bomb inside the eye of the hurricane and it disrupts it. Why can’t we do that?”

The White House official assured the president they would look into that, but sources said aides were astonished by Trump’s question.

A National Security Council memo from 2017 shows that Trump asked about bombing hurricanes.

4. Bolton is a terrible guy. He is totally ripped on DU. However, he could get a bit of

credit for standing up to trump - and could be useful in energizing part of the republicon constituencies.

11. Credit? I don't think so!

Bolton knew damn well what he got himself into. To me it sounded more like a polite disagreement without having the balls to say that he should be impeached.

17. Frog & Scorpion

Everybody knows that story.

Trump the Scorpion have Bolton the Frog a ride on his back across the stream, and as soon as they both crawled up on the bank, Trump stung him, because that's what scorpions do.

MUCH of the coverage of this has included stating that Bolton has ALWAYS considered himself "the smartest guy in the room."

Womp, womp.

28. Got to like the African version better

. . . and it may happen that way.

[And I do think that Bolton, like trump, cannot shut up - he may damage trump, overtly or covertly, and for that I would give him a bit of credit; whereas trump is totally worthless].

6. Where as Trump is like a toddler and despite being told that a burner on the stove is hot

(in this case the "burner" being able to launch nukes) he still keeps trying to place his hand on it.

10. It won't be long now

After something is exposed on trump he'll leak out he's considering ivankie,Jared, or jr. As Bolton's replacement, for attention, distraction, or because he can do this.. Wouldn't shock me if Pence was dumped for one of them for self protection.either as a VP.

22. I think Trump fired him because he wouldn't go on Sunday shows this weekend to defend Trump.

Bolton was supposed to go on the Sunday morning talk shows and defend Trump's invitation of the Taliban to Camp David during the week of 9/11. Bolton refused. Trump called him on the carpet about it Monday. Bolton offered to resign Monday night. Trump beat him to it by firing him Tuesday morning.

23. Bolton was a Terrible Choice for So Many Reasons

Without a doubt, this is an administration that runs on chaos and our president is embarrassingly ignorant. However, Bolton was one of the worst choices possible for national security advisor, so whatever it took for him to be relieved of his duties was a win for America, and peace in the world.
