The Trump Carousal

No matter what you think of him, and I didn’t think much, at the very least you got to admire John Bolton for lasting 520 days as Trumps National Security Advisor. For someone with a mustache, which Trump hates, and without long tan legs and DD’s, which Trump loves, that ain’t bad. So just to refresh your memory these are the men that have taken a ride on the Trump carousal as his NSA;

1. Mike Flynn-lasted 24 days and we all know why.

2. Keith Kellogg (acting)-lasted 7 days. He was just a warm body.

3. H. R. McMaster-lasted 412 days. A smart man in a uniform and Trump hates smart men in uniform.

4. John R. Bolton-lasted 520 days. A policy hawk who would love to nuke Syria, Libya, and Iran. Trump was okay with that as long as Bolton told everyone it was his idea and Trump got his picture in the paper.

Maybe you have wondered what exactly a National Security Advisor does. Well here is the ten cent description; “The national security adviser offers the president a range of options on national security issues. Among other duties, the national security adviser helps plan the president’s foreign travel and provides background memos and staffing for the president’s meetings and phone calls with world leaders.” Sounds kind of like a glorified secretary with a big ass Rolodex that stretches around the world. But NSA’s of previous administrations have been smart men and women, worldly men and women, people like Henry Kissinger, Colin Powell, and Condoleezza Rice just to name a few. Objective people with balanced personalities. H. R. McMaster was like that. Mike Flynn and John Bolton were not.

So who is next? Who will Trump hire as his new National Security Advisor? Here is what I think, Trump wants a Nobel Prize. I mean Trump REALLY wants one, bad. Barack Obama has one and Trump wants one too. The whole secret meeting at Camp David with the Taliban was Trump’s second failed attempt (with North Korea being the first) for him to “broker” some kind of deal that would get him a Nobel Prize. This despite everyone in his administration with a spine, John Bolton, telling him this was a dumbass idea. I doubt Bolton called it a dumbass idea to his face but then again maybe he did.

So with that goal in mind, the next NSA will have two primary objectives, first, get Trump his Nobel Prize and second give all the credit and glory to God, sorry, I mean Trump. That’s it, that’s all. Pretty simple. Give Trump the credit he so richly believes he deserves and make sure he gets the front-page headline (and a picture) in The New York Times and Washington Post. You see Trump isn’t a complicated man just a swallow, self-absorbed, narcissist. With Trump always remember, it isn’t about you or me. It isn’t about America. It isn’t about prosperity or peace. It’s about him. It’s always been about him, and it will always be about him. Like I said, pretty simple, a worm, but pretty simple.

Here is the thing, Trump will never get a Nobel Prize. Even if he found a cure for cancer, first he would have to learn how to spell cancer, he still wouldn’t get one. You see Trump has never worked for anything in his life. If it wasn’t given to him, Russia, Putin, he bought it. But money can’t buy intelligence, compassion or empathy. You actually have to be a human being to acquire those things. Sure gold toilets and silk suits with long red ties may make you look classy and elegant but the Nobel Prize committee can see right through that shit. Trump can’t buy a Nobel Prize and here is the great part, one ain’t for sale.

“I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House. I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions, as did others in the Administration, and therefore I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning. I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week.” – Another “employee” fired via tweet by the Big Pussy 9-10-19

And this is how Bolton saw it:

“I offered to resign last night and President Trump said, “Let’s talk about it tomorrow.”- John Bolton tweet 9-10-19

Here is the fun part of this “firing”, John Bolton is a nut, a wild-man. He is opinionated, abrasive, and doesn’t care who he pisses off or what apple-cart he overturns. Before he was Don’s man in the White House he was all over Fox News saying crazy shit but I suspect Fox and Hannity will keep a little distance between themselves and Bolton right now. Bolton is liable to spill the beans on the orange moron and Hannity’s savings account can’t afford to piss The Donald off. And still the white people rally for their savior!

  1. That last sentence is the one that drives me the craziest. They’re idiots, but they’re loyal idiots.
