Trump prefers for the US to be a non-interventionist. Many voted for Trump for exactly that reason, being tired of the Dems and Republicans who BOTH constantly beat the war drums. And even though it's always good to hear all sides when pondering foreign relations, Bolton was an odd choice, and it's a good thing that Bolton's contrarian attitude/opinion has been drummed out of the Trump Admin. He's too hawkish and beholden to the Military Industrial Complex's make-war to rake in the profits agenda.

Is that why Tucker Carlson was calling Bolton a “liberal”?
Tucker’s nose should reach all the way to the Oval Office by now...

And if Trump prefers for the US to be “non-interventionist” why is he backing up Israel’s war-like behavior w/Iran?
Trump wants to go to war with Iran...

I remember back when liberal heads exploded because he was there!

Good Bolton is a whack job - he should have never been allowed to get remotely close to that job.

If Tucker Carlson'a audience had a fact-based worldview, they'd not be listening to Tucker Carlson, would they? They now know, with full certainty, that Bolton was a left-winger all along. Just like the good followers of Ingsoc knew - absolutely knew - that they'd always been at war with Eastasia.

Now they evidently see him as the last non Nazi in the Trump Administration. His departure is now seen a serious blow to the effort at world peace. There will be war without him!



... All this in just a few days...
Where do you people come up with this tripe? Where are you seeing this? I've seen MANY claims in the thread of the like, but NO evidence to support it. If anyhting, folks on both sides seem to be glad he's gone, but some partisan hacks just can't see reality.

Iran is a direct threat to Israel. Israel's counter-measures aren't non-interventionist.

Why is Trump backing the Saudi slaughter in Yemen? Because they stay at his hotel?
