I'm live tweeting my thoughts and some analysis as I read Bolton's "The Room Where It Happened". I'm using a PDF version that I got for free, so I'll provide annotations and highlights.
The structure is quite poor, and the big words and fancy phrases Bolton uses don't add anything. He just wants to seem smart.
Coincidence? I really fucking doubt it.
Oh, if only he'd known how many National Security Advisors 2017 would bring...
A) Bolton thinks waaaaay too highly of himself
B) Bolton reallllyyyy wanted to be Sec. of State.
He claims Trump was vindicated on collusion, something which Page 1 of the report rebukes.
It's actually quite distracting for the reader.
I'll continue this soon.
He claims that a single op-ed of him would throw the White House into disarray and that they were begging him to join the admin for years.
I dare say he might be just as, if not more, narcissistic than Trump.
I’ll tweet highlights, but I want this to be over as soon as possible.
He’s implying Macron did not know what he was talking about and maintained a condescending tone when referring to Theresa May.
An appropriate description of Trump’s reaction to an international crisis, watching Fox News.
This is the former National Security Advisor we’re talking about
No one knew what the fuck was going on and half the administration was actively trying to sabotage it.
I don;t know how much longer I can do this.
Really, John? You were surprised?
Trump cancels Singapore via tweet, then he takes it back when DRNK sends a letter. Lol.
He’s quite literally implying he’s more capable himself than the entire South Korean government.
A few pages ago, Trump was calling Senators ‘clowns’, now he is claiming he will seek Senate approval for a DRNK deal. He is, in fact, full of shit.
I feel a good part of this book is straight up lies.
Cause you can’t degrade yourself enough while in the Trump Admin.
I believe it was reported, but can’t remember.
