I think we have just discovered the most Trump thing ever:
WALLACE: Did North Korea demand money for the release of Otto Warmbier?
BOLTON: It appears that they did. This occurred before I came into the administration, but that’s my understanding.
WALLACE: Did the U.S. official who was there to get him out of the country, Joseph Yun, did he sign a document pledging the money in order to get him out.
BOLTON: That is what I am told, yes.
WALLACE: I guess the bottom line question is, did the U.S. pay any money to North Korea, however it was disguised, after Warmbier was released?
BOLTON: Absolutely not. And that’s the key point.
I’m dying here. To recap, Trump “rescued” the brain dead Warmbier who immediately died upon entry to the US, blamed his predecessor Obama for his capture and for not releasing him, then did nothing to the country who did it, then cozied up to their leader and saw his soul and is continuously being mocked by North Korea continuing to do whatever they want, and then we have the grand finale- not paying the fucking bill. All the while doing hideous amounts of damage to our allies, to our national reputation, and achieving NOTHING while declaring a great victory. And the Bolton remarks just add insult to injury, because he is now confirming that no one can trust our diplomats and negotiators, and THEY THINK THIS IS A WIN- “And that’s the key point.”
