I can agree with the hiring-firing thing - I can admit there are things I don't like about Trump. I remember not liking the Bolton hiring from day one. That said I still support Trump and will vote for him again.

Seems Bolton and maybe others failed to understand their position, versus the position of an elected official.

Yeah me too. That doesn't mean I can't or won't ever criticize him, but the difference is the criticism is fair and genuine unlike with leftists.

All that matters to me is the Supreme Court. At least Trump won't put some commuist on the court. That's why I will roll with him no matter what.

There's a quote, but I can't find the exact wording now. Something along the lines of "I don't hang a man for being incompetent at the Devil's work, I hang him for being competent. Admiration of his technique can be part of the process."

This is a good thing. I've long thought that Bolton was too much of a war hawk. He's probably in the pocket of the Military Industrial Complex as are a lot of people in Washington.

I have lots of issues with Trump but this is good. He never should have been hired in the first place.
