Donald J. Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrump
....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.

17. Same here! Maybe one of his new "friends"

Who Bolton advised him not to meet with! It's just a new and more frightening horror each and every day!

9. His best firing yet

John "maybe Israel should nuke Iran" Bolton is even more dangerous than Trump himself on foreign policy. Now if only there was a way to make him hate Stephen Miller...

10. This basically confirms

That Bolton was "over my dead body" on the Taliban thing. Which also confirms that Trump is 100% nuts.

12. Don't cross the boss

Trump doesn't want advisers or expertise (even bad advisers or experts). He just wants an echo chamber and a sycophantic chorus to tell him how great he is.

Or have someone else do it?

15. NYT's Peter Baker already had a full article, ready to go whenever it happened:

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/10/us/politics/john-bolton-national-security-adviser-trump.html#click=https://t.co/yqWFFX4wu2

"WASHINGTON — President Trump fired John R. Bolton, his third national security adviser, on Tuesday amid fundamental disagreements over how to handle major foreign policy challenges like Iran, North Korea and Afghanistan.
......

His departure comes as Mr. Trump is pursuing diplomatic openings with two of the United States’ most intractable enemies, efforts that have troubled hard-liners in the administration, like Mr. Bolton, who view North Korea and Iran as profoundly untrustworthy.

The president has continued to court Kim Jong-un, the repressive leader of North Korea, despite Mr. Kim’s refusal to surrender his nuclear program and despite repeated short-range missile tests by the North that have rattled its neighbors. In recent days, Mr. Trump has expressed a willingness to meetwith President Hassan Rouhani of Iran under the right circumstances, and even to extend short-term financing to Tehran, although the offer has so far been rebuffed.
