    National Security Advisor John Bolton is out.

    Trump dismissed John Bolton. They didn't see eye to eye on things. He thought Bolton was a little too aggressive to get involved. The nail was setting up talks with the Taliban that would have done nothing anyway, and then the Taliban killing American soldiers. Bringing the fox into the hen house.

    If I had to pick sides about the way this went down I'd pick Bolton's version hands-down.

    Bolton was one who told the UN to shove it when it came to infringing on our second amendment. Hate to see him go because he was very pro-second amendment.

    Well, if you can't agree that the CEO (POTUS) calls the shots, then you're not really an advisor. I make the boardroom analogy deliberately, because if you couldn't get behind the decision of the CEO/Board in a corporation and attempted to sway outcomes through ... irregular channels, shall we say - you would be out on your ass, just like Mr. Moustache

    IMO, if you're not disagreeing with the boss, then you really aren't necessary.

    Conflict in any workplace should never be seen as a negative, but in our world of echo chambers and confirmation bias, I'm afraid it is.

    We used to call those guy "yes men" and it was seen as a pejorative. Now if you can't agree with your boss, then you just quit apparently.

    I agree with this and Bolton let everyone know going in, that he wasn't just going to be a yes man.

    Lack of his clear eyed view of the world will be a detriment to this administration.

    Trump is starting to make me wish he had a nut. At least one. Taunting the press doesn't make you a man. Standing up to all our enemies in the world, with force where appropriate, is gonna be the measure of the man. As things are going now, the violence is gonna be here, not on foreign soil. Much as it pains me to say it.
    Just call me lollipop.
