    All Bolton has to do is call Trump stupid in a tweet, and the left will praise him as a hero.

    Good fuck Bolton. Should have never been hired in 1st place. I'm legit surprised that we didn't bomb Iran or NK under his watch.

    Just about everyone agrees Bolton is terrible and are thankful he didn’t convince Trump to take erroneous actions.

    But there’s a big picture problem here. He’s the 3rd to go in less than 3 years. Trump is not hiring good people. And does anyone think someone who is highly qualified with a solid reputation wants this job? Trump isn’t only looking for objective views on keeping the world safe. You can be fired if you didn’t like his photo op with brutal dictators!

    Trump is so toxic I fear good people don’t want important positions.

    Now that's good news. The world is more peaceful with him out.

    And then the voter ends up voting for dems in Chicago. Many such cases.

    I highly doubt that. Bolton is a raging neocon. He's a fucking psychopath. He wants to take on Russia, Venezuela, Iran and Syria at the same time. It's insane.

    Just to be clear, I mean it's ignorance or TDS on the part of the people making those comments, not on Higus. Sorry if there was any confusion.

    Seems like a pretty unreasonable assumption.

    Trump was well aware of Bolton's politics when he got hired as was everyone else so it's more likely it was something else.

    Trump is only looking for someone who will elevate his image to the American people. He has no principles by which he refer to when deciding on actions. His sole considerations are "who is less likely to make me look bad?" and "who will make me look good?"

    Notice how he only moves forward with policies and actions that draw the biggest roar in a crowd? The border wall and "mexico will pay for it" is a prime example.

    Still seems entirely plausible to me that Trump got sick of the constant advocating for regime change wars and proxy wars and agitating Russia. And I don't blame him.

    Not really.

    Trump has the highest turnover for his cabinet and staff I've ever seen.

    Seems more like he's the problem than the people he's hired.

    Exactly. And anyone worth a shit will avoid the guy at this point for the reasons you state.

    Early on some high quality folks took the job assuming they could make a bad president a little less bad and now they’re all gone.

    Hire fast fire fast is a good management strategy. I've adopted the same over the years. You can only know people so we'll until they are in the position and actually doing the job.

    It works in business for certain positions (usually low level) but not for positions that are complex or require developing and maintaining relationships. I think it’s a bad thing when it comes to cabinet members and advisors, particularly ones responsible for helping to keep us safe. The broader point though is the turnover and trumps expectations are all but certain to lower the quality of the candidates willing to take the job.
