Ding Dong Bolton’s Gone

Trump tweets that he fired Bolton, but Bolton says he had already resigned: John Bolton OUT: ‘You Can’t Fire Me, I Quit’ Given Trump’s “Cowardly Lion” impersonation every time anyone leaves, this is the first time I have ever agreed with John Bolton about anything – Trump is a bully and doesn’t have the courage to fire anyone.

Digby highlights an All In with Chris Hayes episode featuring David Frum analyzing Trump’s Camp David “Afghanistan peace talks”. Frum’s analysis of the event makes a lot of sense. The last thing Bolton wants in the Middle East is peace talks that don’t follow unconditional surrender.

Trump is trying to create some resume items for his re-election campaign. It the same reason he is violating norms to get something built that he can claim is a wall.
