So now it is Donald Trump who is trying to rein in John Bolton? (Bolton is the one who said that the only way to deal with the U.N. is to blow up the top ten floors of the U.N. building before George W. Bush selected as U.N. Ambassador, and who was one of the chief architects of the Iraq war and a long-time advocate of war in Iran.)
You know we are in a world of trouble when Donald Trump is the voice of sanity in a chaos-driven White House.
John Yoo, now teaching at U.C. Berkeley, as George W. Bush’s Deputy Attorney General, was the author of the legal memos justifying “enhanced interrogation” (torture). Yet this legal outlier is now the one saying the Trump administration has gone too far!
So Yoo thinks that Trump has gone too far, and Trump thinks that Bolton has gone too far.
Speaks volumes about Bolton.
