2. Bolton got his job because the president had been watching him on Fox News for years.
3. Then he lost the president's ear to his former colleague Tucker Carlson, who eventually reportedly advised Trump to can him.
4. Among his potential replacements: A former Fox contributor, a frequent Fox guest, and the dual-hatted Mike Pompeo idea that a former Fox contributor/former WH aide floated on a Fox Business show.
5. Whoever it is will be competing for Trump's attention with Carlson and others at Fox. And the most important morning presidential briefing will continue to be Fox & Friends.
