Tucker: John Bolton refuses to acknowledge his mistakes


♪>>Tucker: GOOD EVENING AND WELCOME TO “TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT.” NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR JOHN BOLTON GOT FIRED THIS MORNING AS YOU NO DOUBT HAVE HEARD. IT’S A MAJOR PERSONNEL CHANGE. IT’S MORE THAN THAT IT’S GREAT NEWS FOR AMERICA. ESPECIALLY FOR THE LARGE NUMBER OF YOUNG PEOPLE WHO WOULD HAVE BEEN KILLED IN POINTLESS WARS IF BOLTON HAD STAYED ON THE JOB. THEY MAY NOT BE CELEBRATING TONIGHT BUT THEY SHOULD BE. INTERNATIONAL OIL PRICES BY THE WAY ON THE INTERNATIONAL MARKET DROPPED IMMEDIATELY ON THE NEWS. INVESTORS NEW INVESTORS KEW INVESTORS KNEW FOR CERTAIN THAT BOLTON PLANNED ON LAUNCHING ANOTHER MIDDLE EASTERN CONFLICT THAT WOULD SPIKE ENERGY PRICES. SOME WERE DISAPPOINTED TO SEE BOLT TO BE GO. CERTAINLY MANY IN WASHINGTON WITH DISAPPOINTED. CHRIS MURPHY FROM CONNECTICUT A PROGRESSIVE ONE AT THAT QUOTED THAT HE WAS QUOTE LEGITIMATELY SHAKEN TO SEE JOHN BOLTON TO LEAVE THE WHITE HOUSE. SAMANTHA POWERS, YOU REMEMBER HER. THE OBAMA OFFICIAL PRIMARILY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CATASTROPHIC DESTRUCTION OF LIBYA. THE MOVE THAT FLOODED EUROPE WITH REFUGEES. THAT OFFICIAL, SAMANTHA POWER TOLD REPORTERS TODAY THAT THE FIRING WAS A VERY TROUBLING SIGN BELIEVE IT OR NOT A NUMBER OF OTHER REPUBLICANS MADE SIMILAR NOISES MITT ROMNEY QUOTE HE WAS VERY, VERY UNHAPPY THAT BOLTON WAS LEAVING. HE WENT ON TO DESCRIBE THE NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR AS A BRILLIANT MAN WITH DECADES OF EXPERIENCE IN FOREIGN POLICY. ROMNEY DIDN’T SAY MUCH ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE. HE WASN’T SPECIFIC ABOUT IT. WHY? PROBABLY BECAUSE NONE OF BOLTON’S EXPERIENCE IN THE END HELPED AMERICA. ROMNEY IS RIGHT. BOLTON HAS, IN FACT, BEEN ON THE SCENE FOR DECADES. ALL OF US ARE SUFFERING THE CONSEQUENCES OF IT. BUT, WHATEVER. THE DETAILS LIKE THAT MAKE NO DIFFERENCE AT ALL IN WASHINGTON. IN WASHINGTON, NOBODY CARES WHAT KIND OF JOB YOU DID. ONLY THAT YOU DID THE JOB. NOBODY THERE LEARNS FROM MISTAKES BECAUSE MISTAKES ARE NEVER EVEN ACKNOWLEDGED. EVER. JOHN BOLTON HIMSELF TOOK THIS FORM OF SELECTIVE AMNESIA TO AN ART FORM. WATCH HIM PERFORM IT ON THIS SHOW.>>SO YOU’VE CALLED FOR REGIME CHANGE IN IRAQ, LIBYA, IRAN, AND SYRIA. IN THE FIRST TWO COUNTRIES WE HAVE HAD REGIME CHANGE AND OBVIOUSLY IT’S BEEN, I WOULD SAY A DISASTER.>>NO, NO. I DON’T AGREE WITH THAT AND.>>Tucker: YOU DON’T THINK IT’S BEEN A DISASTER.>>I THINK YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND IS THAT LIFE IS COMPLICATED IN THE MIDDLE EAST. AND WHEN YOU SAY WELL THE OVERTHROW OF SADDAM HUSSEIN WAS A MISTAKE IS SIMPLISTIC.>>Tucker: I WOULD ARGUE THAT I’M THE ONE WHO UNDERSTANDS HOW COMPLICATED IT IS. THAT’S MY VIEW.>>IT’S YOUR LONG EXPERIENCE IN FOREIGN POLICY.>>Tucker: BETTER RECORD THAN YOURS, I WOULD SAY.>>Tucker: DID YOU CATCH THAT RATHER THAN JUSTIFY OR IVAN EXPLAIN HIS OWN RECORD, BOLTON BRAGS THAT HE SPENT A LOT OF TIME ON THE JOB. IF YOU ARE WONDERING WHY SO MANY PROGRESSIVES ARE MOURNING BOLTON’S FIRING TONIGHT BOLTON HIMSELF FUNDAMENTALLY WAS A MAN OF THE LEFT. THERE WAS NOT A HUMAN PROBLEM JOHN BOLTON WASN’T TOTALLY CONVINCED COULD BE SOLVED WITH THE ELITE FORCE OF GOVERNMENT. THAT’S AN ASSUMPTION OF THE LEFT. NOT THE RIGHT. DON’T LET THE MUSTACHE FOOL YOU. JOHN BOLTON WAS ONE OF THE MOST PROGRESSIVE PEOPLE IN THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. BY THE WAY, NATURALLY ONCE HE WAS A SCONS THERE BOLTON PROMOTED OBAMA LOYALISTS WITHIN THE SECURITY COUNCIL THAT SHOULDN’T PRIZE YOU EITHER. FROM THE VERY FIRST DAY JOHN BOLTON OPERATED AS IN FACT A FIFTH COLUMN WITHIN THE TRUMP WHITE HOUSE. WE WARNED ABOUT HIM FREQUENTLY ON THIS SHOW.>>Tucker: WHEN THE PRESIDENT CALLS FOR PEACE WITH A HEAVILY ARMED NUCLEAR POWER THAT IS CONSIDERED TREASON. BUT WITH THE NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR CALLS FOR, YET, ANOTHER POINTLESS WAR, THAT’S JUST ELITE CONSENSUS AND IT’S FINE. NIKON BOLTON HAS CALLED FOR TOPPLING THE IRANIAN GOVERNMENT AGAIN AND AGAIN. TELLINGLY HE NEVER SUGGESTED WHAT MIGHT REPLACE THE IRANIAN GOVERNMENT ONCE IT’S TOPPLED.>>Tucker: TO THIS DAY MIKE BOOT TAKES A. JOHN BOLTON IS THIS COUNTRY’S NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISOR. THERE WERE NO CONSEQUENCES TO THEIR FOOLISHNESS OR DISHONESTY. NONE. YES, MR. PRESIDENT, JOHN BOLTON DOES WANT TO GET YOU INTO A WAR. IT’S ALL HE WANTS IT’S WHAT HE DREAMS ABOUT. MANY WARS IF POSSIBLE. IF YOU ARE NOT CAREFUL, HE WILL DO IT.>>Tucker: IN BETWEEN ADMINISTRATION JOBS THERE ARE CUSHY THINK TANK JOBS. CABLE NEWS CONTRACTS. WAR MAY BE DISASTER FOR AMERICA BUT FOR JOHN BOLTON AND HIS FELLOW NEOCONS, IT IS ALWAYS GOOD BUSINESS.>>Tucker: WE INVITED JOHN BOLTON ON THIS SHOW TONIGHT HE DID NOT RESPOND TO THE INVITATION WHICH IS A SHAME. IS HE ALWAYS WELCOME HERE. THAT’S A SINCERE INVITATION. IN SOME WAYS THE STORY ISN’T SIMPLY ABOUT JOHN BOLTON. IT’S ABOUT THE COUNTLESS JOHN BOLTONS WHO CURRENTLY THE STAFF FEDERAL BUREAUCRACY DEEPLY MEDIOCRE LIFERS, DRUNK ON UBEROUS. PROTECTED BY BULLET PROOF JOB SECURITY. THEY ARE MORE LIKELY TO DIE ON THE JOB THAN BE FIRED AND THEY KNOW IT. AS A GROUP THESE PEOPLE HAVE DONE AN AWFUL LOT TO MAKE THIS COUNTRY POORER AND SADDER AND MORE DIVIDED. THE ACTUAL JOHN BOLTON IS GONE, LIKELY FOREVER. THE QUESTION TONIGHT IS WILL HE BE REPLACED BY ANOTHER JOHN BOLTON JUST LIKE HIM AND UNFORTUNATELY THERE ARE SIGNS THAT THAT’S POSSIBLE. IN FACT, IN WASHINGTON, IT’S ALWAYS POSSIBLE. CHANGE ARE NOT ALWAYS FOR THE BETTER. DON’T LIE TO YOURSELF. APPARENTLY ON THE SHORT LIST TONIGHT TO REPLACE BOLTON IS THE PRESIDENT’S SPECIAL REPRESENTATIVE FOR IRAN BRIAN HOOK. HE MAY BE A GOOD PERSON UNAPOLOGETIC NEOCON. HE HAS UNDISGUISED CONTEMPT FOR DONALD TRUMP AS JOHN BOLTON DID. AND HE PARTICULARLY DISLIKES THE PRESIDENT’S NATIONALIST FOREIGN POLICY WHICH IS ONE OF THE REASONS PEOPLE VOTED FOR DONALD TRUMP IN 2016. ONE ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL RECALLS HOOK ANNOUNCING THAT, QUOTE: I THINK THE PRESIDENT IS RECKLESS AND DOESN’T UNDERSTAND POLICY. ANOTHER SOURCE HEARD HIM DIRECTLY FOREIGN OFFICIALS AT A CONFERENCE ABROAD. A CHOICE LIKE THAT AND HOOK, BY THE WAY, IS NOT THE ONLY ONE, NOT EVEN CLOSE. A CHOICE LIKE THAT IS REALLY NO CHOICE AT ALL. IT’S MORE JOHN BOLTON WITH THE SAME PREDICTABLE DISASTROUS RESULTS.

  1. The elites and this is the truth are only the elite they regulate monies from taxpayers. They were supposed to have taken these jobs at our request to take care of our business instead they feel entitled to impose rules make us pay for them and severely punished us if we disagree. We think they've been chosen to rule us.most of these bureaucrats watch presidents come and go for many years. They think they're entitled to keep running things forever. They pay themselves lots of money which makes them elite in their opinion. And they have a lot of fake outrage about everything making themselves as relevant as possible. They take power.

  2. Interesting. This guy could say trump refuses to acknowledge the numerous, public, easily checked mistakes he does routinely. But, instead, this guy talks about a guy who hasn't been known to state incorrect facts that should be easy to avoid when one stays on top of information and facts. That said, I'm not sticking up for Bolton the warmonger — but noone can say that guy want well informed and knowledgeable… Not even those of us who first disagreed with his conclusions.

    Now you got this guy calling Bolton a lefty… Please. Now whose the fake news.

  3. This was great for USA and the world and especially the men and women in uniform that are treated like disposable and expendable in endless wars. Imagine if Trump became a peace time President? wow dare to dream. Bolton is a war dog always licking the heals of the military industrial complex and the oil companies good riddance. Great work Tucker on staying the course on this war monger. The world is a safer place with no Bolton.

  4. How evil are these politicians????? They want Americans to die in pointless wars??? Have them come back broken and drug addicted

  5. Stop lying to people. Democrats do want war, but they are losers, not in power and didn't hire Bolton. Trump did. Bolton has been hired by Republicans every time. Bolton isn't progrrssive, if you don't believe that ASK BERNIE SANDERS He'll correct you.

  6. IN THE NAME OF GOD, STOP LYING! A righteous man hates falsehood, but a wicked man acts disgustingly and shamefully! Hypocrites are addicted to lying. Tucker, I urge you to find a 12 step program.

  7. Liars love impure conversation.
    An evildoer listens to wicked lips; a liar pays attention to a destructive tongue. Yeah folks, keep watching Fox! You're in good company, Tucker is also Satans only source for news and commentary, after Hannity and that trans Laura Ingraham.

  8. DON'T BE FOOLED THE GOVERMENT IS A COLONIAL PROJECT AND john Bolton AND tucker Carlson ARE AGENTS OF IT WE LIB ARE ANTI COLONIALISM ANTI EXTORTION RACKET ANTI WAR SO LET'S NOT FORGET WHO HAS ESTABLISH A SPARTAN REPUBLIC ON STOLEN LAND FREEDOM HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH COLONIAL OPPRESSION

  9. You know when MSNBC, CNN, NYT & the rest of the hacks in the presstitute MSM are bitching and moaning about how horrible Trump is, he indeed once again, made the right decision!

  10. I wish Tucker wasn't so determined to pin Bolton to progressives. We thought the same things about them he did about Bolton and are as glad he's gone as he is. This is why we're more divided than we have to be, progressives and the new right of all it's stripes should be high 5ing each other and celebrating the possible end of disaster for our country and our species that is John Bolton's career. Heck, despite Tucker maybe we still can. Whaddya say my fellow Americans who have some basic conscience, can I get a hell yeah!?!

  11. I am the Egg Man I am the Walrus….good ridden's to bad Neo Con Rubbish… love seeing Trump Trolling the Deep State ….using one swamp creature after another to clean and drain the swamp..Thank God Trump is SMARTER then them ALL….KAG

  12. These folks may be globalists. Destabilize these foreign locations. Then the great migration begins. Then you must accept them in, so says the left.

  13. Oh you delusional racist Tucker. How dare you, you think were idiots. As a progressive I'm happy a madman like Bolton is gone however the problem we have is amegedon Christian yes man Pompeo is in charge, that is deeply problematic. Bolton never saw a war he didn't like. Pompeo wants to burn the world to bring the second coming but he is no progressive he was to psychotic for the Bush administration he should have never been picked by Trump that he was picked at all makes me doubt the cheetoes sanity. So tuck why are we going through a national security advisor every year. I'm not feeling so secure.

  14. Just FYI: The dislikes are towards the ridiculous spin by Tucker to associate Bolton with the left and "progressives", completely ignoring the fact that Bolton was a Fox News contributor for over a decade and always considered himself a Republican. Even as a conservative, it's really silly to buy this narrative. Progressives are at the forefront of antiwar policy.

  15. Tucker knows that Bolton represents the real, powerful special interest in Washington, so ruthless that he is afraid to name them. Bolton is not some independent, rogue bureaucrat who happened to wander into the White House. Tucker is right to worry who will replace him. When it comes to political appointments, this president never fails to disappoint.

  16. Dems like Pelosi and Schumer might be sad to see Bolton out, but the commie wing of Bernie and AOC probably would have liked to do to him the same thing that happened to another Bolton in Game of Thrones… fed him to the hounds.

  17. ALL OF IT SURPRISES ME! I try very hard to keep up with this, but I really liked Bolton's no-nonsense approach to the UN when he was an ambassador. I thought he was very plain-spoken, like Trump and that is why I liked him. You are usually quite straight forward as well and I am confused how I missed this and saw Bolton as the "Duke Wayne" we needed in the UN. Maybe he was better used there. I am not closed to taking a second look at ANYTHING.

  18. THE NSA CIA  THE SO CALL DEEP STATE MR belton AND tucker ARE ALL COLONIAL AGENTS THE LIBERAL POOR HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH WARS ONLY AMERIKKKANS CITIZEN WORK AT THE DEEP STATE FOR THE RICH AND THEY ARE ALL RIGHT WINGERS

  19. If Bolton was so bad, then why was he there in the first place? Why were all of those other "GREAT" selection made that later turned out to be "terrible people? When is Trump going to get some of the blame, since he bragged about how he hires only the best people?

  20. Israel's second greatest ally in the WH just got fired. Their greatest ally will be gone in 4 more years. What do we do then?

  21. Bolton a progressive?

    He was in the Reagan, Bush, and trump administration and somehow hes a lefty….

    God fox news is just desperate, unless they think those 3 presidents were lefties for hiring him

  22. I can't believe anyone would buy this BS, Bolton is through and through a man of the right and the way it is I didn't expect the right to not attack him like a pack of hyenas but to say he was a leftist has to be the furthest stretch of truth I have heard from this network.

  23. Trump fingered the No. 1 offense, threatening NK with Libya diplomacy, in an event at the WH today. I never understood why he would hire such a man into his admin. and I always felt he would never get out from under Trump's thumb. So what could be the benefit? I read this: Trump took notes on all those in the various agencies that backed Bolten's ideas, with the idea that they will be following him out the door. Just some important house cleaning of deep state operatives still in high positions… Pure genius.

  24. THANK YOU, Tucker, for being an ACTUAL principled conservative that understands how that works, rather than just paying it lip-service.

  25. WHAT?? OH my God I have finally stumbled upon the infamous- notorious- HILARIOUS- FOX NEWS!!
    OIL PRICES! DEAD TEENAGERS! WARS!!
    F A L S E. N E W S ! !
    Thankee Mr president!♡♡♡.

  26. When it comes to "acknowledging mistakes", how about openly acknowledging that appointing John Bolton as National Security Advisor was very wrong from the beginning, one of the worst mistakes made by President Trump? And the one replaced was a very knowledgeable and competent advisor, Gen. H.R. McMaster. Now, Tucker raises the possibility that Bolton's successor on this very important position will be "more of the same"… scary possibility.
    I hope this won't happen; for now, I'll give the President credit for realizing how wrong appointing this war-monger was, and correcting this mistake. But Tucker, honesty obliges stating clearly: Trump made a big blunder, good that he fixed it.
    Now, calling Bolton a "man of the left", or a "progressive" is pure silliness. He's well known as a neocon (as Tucker mentioned), which is short for neoconservative. That means, hawkish/imperialistic/militaristic, looking not simply for "government solutions for everything" (as per Tucker), but for "military (first threats, then aggression) solutions for every international crisis" – which is a very different concept. Presidents like Richard Nixon, Gerry Ford, Jimmy Carter, George Bush Sr. also looked for "government solutions" for international crises (because this is the job of the government of a superpower) but, they looked for peaceful solutions. Exactly the contrary of the neocons (and of imbeciles like Mitt Romney (R), Samantha Powers (D), and even Hillary Clinton). Progressive, in the basic, sane sense of the word, means looking for peace in the world, promoting peace processes, not war mongering (regardless of the party to which one belongs).

  27. Progressives hate him…What happened to Trump hiring ONLY the best people? Trump is the master of NEVER acknowledging his mistakes.
    FACT CHECK
    1 During the Reagan and George H. W. Bush administrations, his governmental roles were within the State Department, the Justice Department, and the U.S. Agency for International Development. He was a protégé of conservative North Carolina Senator Jesse Helms….
    2 Bolton was instrumental in derailing a 2001 biological weapons conference in Geneva convened to endorse a UN proposal to enforce the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention.
    3 Bolton has been a strong critic of the United Nations for much of his career.[102] Bolton's opposition to the UN was rooted in a disdain for international organizations, who he believed infringed on the sovereignty of the United States
    4 On May 26, 2005, Senate Democrats postponed the vote on Bolton's UN nomination.

    Life long REPUBLICAN not progressive
    You lie too much Tucker
    do your own research people

  28. Tucker so often surprise and impress with his honest analysis. Trump should hire Tulsi Gabard, a veteran of two Middle East wars for Bolton position.

  29. Bolton looks like the Monopoly Man plus he is an idiot that doesn't even understand the Middle East… Nobody in the State department understands the Middle East and its society if they did they would know we infidels can never win a war there..

  30. Tucker is a genius how he made all these far right agree with the progressive movement lol, because he was most definitely not a lefty.
