  1. Trumps gaggle has one less goose,
    as Bolton has been cut loose,
    for not supporting his plan,
    to entertain the Taliban…
    but, that's just the first excuse.

  2. There's a job opening in the White House! Who wants to go work for Donald Trump??! Fill out an application! Starting minimum wage, no benefits! Illegal immigrants are encouraged to apply! LoL!!! 😄😄😄😁😁😁😂😂😂

  3. Bolton was a dangerous man who did not have the American public interest at heart, and should be replaced by Senator Rand Paul.
    #DrainTheSwamp #FreeAssange

  4. Bolton: "I offered to resign last night and the President Trump said let's talk about it tomorrow".  TRANSLATION:  'Please Mr. President, let me save face and allow me to resign. Please Sir, Don't FIRE ME!"

  5. Bolton was the man who had every other country shook, now they're going to wild out. We needed John Bolton, our president trump is just dumb and hates people smarter than him.

  6. Bolton is out, proving blind loyalty to narcissist never works. John Bolton should never have joined an administration in which the president was overtly corrupt, sympathetic to dictators, weirdly beholden to Russian President Vladimir Putin and a pathological liar

  7. We will soon be down to just Ivanka. I haven't even seen Barron in ages. They keep him locked in the White House attic? I hope they send him food once in awhile.

  8. President-elect Donald Trump’s business conflicts of interest have dominated much of the post-election media coverage of his transition to the Oval Office. But of all the many potential conflicts between his global business and political interests, there’s one that stands out as a signature problem: Goldman Sachs.

    Connections with Goldman Sachs, a global investment bank and financial services firm, creates conflicts for how a president might deal with issues ranging from regulations to taxes. Hillary Clinton received critique during the campaign for receiving speaking fees from the company. And, of course, a Goldman connection was an issue for President Obama’s administration, too: for example, Rahm Emanuel, Obama’s first chief of staff, had been on the company’s payroll, and Gregory Craig, former White House counsel left the administration to work there.

  9. The Trio White House Hawks,John Bolton,Mike Pompeo and Manuchin ,who are the Puppets of the Israeli Zionist War Criminal Crooked Lying PM,Mr Natanyahu, These Trio wanted to spill the US Young Soldiers Blood for the Interest Of Israel,also with their Lying Fake Reports and Advises to the Brave President Trump in order to attack Iran,Syria,Iraq and Brave Lebanese Hezbullah Organization in Lebanon ,because of the Extreme Pressures from the Sneaky Old Fox Natanyahu who feeds The White House With Lies,Fake Intel,News against Iran,Syria,Iraq,Iran and Russia ,also they wanted Our Young Soldier,s Blood spilled for the Zionist Apartheid ,Inhumane and War Criminals Israeli Leaders. who Once Provided Out National Security Agencies with Lies,Fake Intel,about Iraq,s Having a Nuclear,Chemical and Biological Weapons which Till NOW NONE Found By UN Nusclear Inspectors,But caused the Destruction of Iraq,Killing,Displaced Millions of innocent Iraqi Families,also 50 thousands of Young Soldier,s Dead,Injured,and with PTSD , Just to Keep the Israeli Safe ,also Trillion of American,s Taxes wasted.,also the same dirty games they played in Syria,But Failed with Iran because of the Military Power of Iran,also the President Trump waked up early and Realized that all our Military Forces in Middle East will be under the Mercies of the Iranian,Le

  10. Well today I am still very happy with my decision to vote
    for Mr. Trump

    Actually voting for him once again in 2020

    Look We have a wonderful American economy

    Manufacturing JOBS returning

    Lowest Black un employment in our history

    NO Wars

    Securing our border

    Arresting criminals again

    Lowering Working Americans Taxation

    Re structuring and building up our US Military again

    Cutting back on abortions of the utter innocence

    Standing up for Our US Constitution

    Standing up for OUR country

    America First

    The Leftist Democrats certainly haven’t anything to offer actual
    Working Americans who aren’t seeking a hand out

     

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP

    2020
