John Bolton, welcome to #Resistance? Media, Democrats lament Trump firing national security hawk

Within hours of his firing by President Donald Trump, the hawkish national security adviser John Bolton was embraced by mainstream media outlets and even some Democrats, even if only as an excuse to criticize the White House.

Trump announced Bolton’s ouster via Twitter on Tuesday morning, stunning even those in Washington who have reported on the possibility of such a move for months. As the shock wore off, however, reporters and lawmakers figured they would offer their thoughts – which, unsurprisingly, went along the usual lines.

“Can't wait for the Resistance, led by Maddow & O'Donnell & Hayes, to embrace John Bolton as their hero,”quipped commentator George Szamuely. While the trio he named have so far been silent, their colleague “Morning Joe” Scarborough chimed in along those very lines.

John Bolton has been fiercely critical of Putin and North Korea for years. A quick Google search before his hiring would have revealed those stark differences. Bolton as Trump’s NSA never made sense because Bolton has never been cozy with those who count Americans as their enemy.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Trump says he fired national security adviser John Bolton, says they 'disagreed strongly' on many issues.

2. One can certainly identify a msm/political neocon, both on the left and right by

their reaction to the Bolton firing.

President Trump earned bonus point with me today, indeed...

4. AAHH! The hypocrisy of the left!

While in office they hated Bolton with near perfect hatred. Now that he has been fired/quit? He becomes a darling of the left!

I would not trust the left with watching my septic tank be cleaned!
