Battle of the Thin Skins: Bolton - I Quit, Trumpie - I Fired Him

President Trump said he fired national security adviser John Bolton on Twitter Tuesday afternoon amid reported personality and policy clashes in the White House⁠—but Bolton claimed he had already offered his resignation.

- At 11:58 a.m. EST, Trump tweeted that he “informed” Bolton Monday evening that “his services are no longer needed.”
- Bolton fired back on Twitter 12 minutes later, writing, “I offered to resign last night and President Trump said, ‘Let’s talk about it tomorrow.’”
- Just six minutes after Bolton’s tweet, Washington Post reporter Robert Costa joined in. “Ambassador Bolton sends me a text message just now: ‘Let’s be clear, I resigned, having offered to do so last night,’” wrote Costa on Twitter.

2. I would have thought the Left would be happy hes gone

I liked his views regarding the United Nations

There's no such thing as the United Nations. If the U.N. secretary building in New York lost 10 stories, it wouldn't make a bit of difference. John Bolton

6. I think many people, Left and Right, are glad that Bolton is gone

The amusement, as with all things relating to Dumpie-Trumpie, is the way it was done.

14. There's no difference between asking for a letter of resignation and submitting one.

Happened to me once. I quit a job after being asked to resign. See the difference? No? I didn't think so.

19. Right, except that Bolton claims he was not asked to resign and Dumpie-Trumpie says he was

That’s the difference.
