I mostly thought the Bolton nomination was funny at first:.@realDonaldTrump you haven't tweeted about stock market in so long, what's up? Not S&P, that's in negative territory for the year. You did it with your trade war. https://t.co/zgUM1DRv2i— YastronomicalOdds (@Yastreblyansky) March 22, 2018

The TV to Trump pipeline in action again: a longtime Fox contributor become national security adviser https://t.co/styMKzpdaR— Brian Stelter (@brianstelter) March 22, 2018
My acquaintance from the Hasbara League thought Stelter's take was all wrong:
But as the evening wore on and I remembered more and more who Bolton is, beyond the mustache, I started joining in the panic:Because he only mentions him as a TV personality and doesn't his "distinguished" foreign service career? Sorry, he's always been a cartoon whether he was on TV or not.— YastronomicalOdds (@Yastreblyansky) March 23, 2018
John Bolton--not just another pretty mustache but a wingnut with criminal associations going back to Iran-Contra. Stop him. #Bolton pic.twitter.com/OvU6Oikolq— YastronomicalOdds (@Yastreblyansky) March 23, 2018
Stelter's being generous not mentioning his history with Iran-Contra and Taiwangate. He became a TV star cheering on the Iraq War on Fox in 2003. Thought Trump was supposed to skeptical about that adventure.— YastronomicalOdds (@Yastreblyansky) March 23, 2018
Wingnut TV is the only place he's ever been a success.
It's the high point of his career. Lying on TV was considered a weakness when he was acting UN ambassador, that's one reason he couldn't be confirmed. Whereas on Fox News it's a plus.— YastronomicalOdds (@Yastreblyansky) March 23, 2018
he was a huge leaker in the Bush administration, working (successfully) to stop North Korea negotiations (thread: https://t.co/hitXbTgSo4) He'll be "loyal" if you mean bowing and scraping to #EmperorTrump and telling him he's a genius.— YastronomicalOdds (@Yastreblyansky) March 23, 2018
But in the end, these people are just not serious, and I can't be scared all night:

That was the one I wished I'd done the most.
It could be worse. Who Trump meant to appoint was Roose Bolton. pic.twitter.com/JDgHA0DAAy— YastronomicalOdds (@Yastreblyansky) March 23, 2018
(From the Game of Thrones Boltons, vassals of the Stark family who strike out on their own after the fall of the Starks, with astonishing viciousness, I think maybe the worst people in the series. Their totem emblem is a flayed man, don't know if they show that on TV.)
