100 thoughts on “Intel Chair Schiff: Bolton Should Have Never Been National Security Advisor | The Last Word | MSNBC

  1. For those who believe this guy in the W.H. to be the chosen one,
    The proof is in the putting, for you to still feel that he can deliver after 3years.
    Is astounding ,

  2. Mr. Bolton is an honest and strong person and he needs to show the disagreements with Trump. He wants to help the president not to commit mistake about the enemies of this country. I admire him and he doesn't tolerate dictatorships around the worlds much less to this country. He was set because of his strong policies and he was really a great help for Mr. Trump.

  3. I suspect "Mafia Don," who likes playing "whack a mole," would strike again if Bolton "spilled the beans."

  4. The newly-minted enemy of my enemy — Trump — is NOT my friend. Bolton's a warmongering fool — yet another perfect example, of so many, among the Republicans (Bush II, Christie, etc.) of how nominally well-educated people can actually be complete idiots.  Progressives should disown Bolton, shun him, despite any inclination he might have to "set the record straight" on his time in the WH, and his departure. The tactical advantage to Dems is not worth the strategic risk of being associated with that mustachio'd bit of cancer on humanity.

  5. Get our money back from Israelis then you will have the funds with money left over to help the forced homelessness done by NYC to get social security $$$$$ extracted into their pockets. Same people same ideology….apartheid just sayin’…911 inside job spoils

  6. John Bolton's memoirs coming out right before the election might be interesting if it wasn't for the fact that John Bolton is almost as loathsome as Donald Trump himself. The two of them together were a train wreck and it is really difficult to cheer for one over the other. While one of them is ug, the other one is ly. Put them together again and it is ugly.

  7. MSNBC has done so much damage to the democratic party. Lawrence also just had to apologize to Trump after they threatened to sue him for false reports. lol

  8. Bolton is as much a savior as Cohen, The Mooch, and add your own disgraced Trumpanzee. Final verdict? Sell your soul to ConDon and you pay a big price. Who cares if he was resigned or was fired. Vote no Trump in 2020 and this dissipates

  9. The FACT of the matter is that NO ONE is willing to work with that MANIAC President!!! He is a CON MAN, a FRAUD, and a THREAT to America and our Democracy!! IMPEACH & JAIL!

  10. One of the things, about the books that have been written about Trump's presidency, is the back stabbing, that goes on in his own adminstration, about him. Even his own people think he's stupid.

  11. trump doesnt know what he is doing but boltons approach to other countries was to fight them .trump seems less keen on war .He has made some crazy statements but bolton wanted to fight iran and probably some others so im glad trump fired him

  12. Trump likes firing people, and he hates it when others reject him. So when someone who works for him says they will quit, he will find some way to make it look like he rejected them.

  13. Anyone who gives Trump ANY information .. about anything.. is a fool. Stop talking to him… stop treating him as though he's a REAL Boy.

  14. OH NO ! TRUMP HAD TWO SCOOPS OF ICE CREAM ! OH THE HUMANITY ! STOP THAT F'ING HAMMERING ! WHO'S F' ING HAMMERING ? I'M GOING TO SHORT OUT ! STOP IT NOW !

  15. Is this dude writing his own material? He sure does know how to get a laugh.
    Schiff is the perfect guest to speculate on crazy town. He has been a longtime resident, fancies himself king of the kooks and crackpots.
    King schiffty, larry can sure be counted on to lower the I.Q. of all who take them seriously.

  16. Those negative on this news don’t want the truth don’t be conned by trump he is a documented woman abuser, racist and more watch the film film doesn’t lie

  17. Why does Donald Trump always have to be lying in MSNBC fake news town? It's possible both statements are true. Couldn't Trump have requested Bolton resign last night and Bolton replied either in person or through e-messages that yes he will resign, then Trump said let's talk about it tomorrow went to sleep woke up and got caught up with the resignation in the morning just as Trump's Tweet said. Not that any of this matters, how or why he resigned means nothing to anyone, but if it matters so much to MSNBC you can contact Bolton and ask him what he meant. Then shout out to the world how one guy says something useless and pointless and how badly you want to share it with everyone. Then make a big story about it, waste your time and everyone else's time, ohh but first make a 14 minute 10 second YouTube video about it.

  18. Lmao y’all are clearly trying to hint to Bolton to release a book. I don’t want to read what that war criminal has to say.

  19. What Special Sickness permitted the Electoral College to APPOINT a known FOOL to be America's President?
    Is the allure of "More!" so appealing that these individuals set aside their purported allegiance to America in order
    to swell their Bank Accounts? As a Canadian, I MUST ask: Is there NO possibility of reversing that decision for "Cause"?

  20. If anyone needs to contact Schiff about having more nude pictures of President Trump , his office is the third stall at the Greyhound Station !

  21. Just as Bolton should not have been in our government, so, too, should Trump not have been.

    We The People and our beloved country are now captives of the warmongers – each in different ways.

  22. I think his cult has overdosed on the cool aid so they won't read his book, I think over 1/2 of them read as much as Trump does. He boasts that he hates to read, it's very obvious, he really has a hard time with the TelePrompTer

  23. haha Trump #MAGATS saying he is a horrible warmonger and this is good for Trump….TRUMP HIRED HIM AND HE KNEW THAT…TRUMP SAYING BOLTON WAS A LEFTIST…..SO WAS TRUMP…HIS ENTIRE LIFE AND HE COULDN'T GET A BID UNDER THE DNC AND SO HE FLIPPED…THE FLIPPER FLIPPED….

  24. Lawrence, are you crazy? No one wants to read a book by John Bolton. He is a well known liar. No credibility at all, with anyone.

  25. I BET'CHA THE WHITE HOUSE STAFFERS WAKE UP EVERY MORNING DREADING GOING IN TO WORK . . . TO BE TRASHED AND ADMONISHED BY THE 'SPOILED BRAT' . . . 😞.

  26. Poor Lawrence of course Donald Trump is going to get his way and be president again cuz no one will stop him the Devilman

  27. I do not want to put money in Bolton's pocket. I will NOT be buying any book with his name on it. Ditto for any of the people who have worked for Trump. I already know Trump is unfit and unsuited to the US president and I do not need to hear the same from anyone foolish enough to work for Trump and certainly will not pay to hear their opinion of Trump.

  28. Isnt it strange that the warmongers never actually served in combat themselves, Bush, etc. Bolton was in military briefly, but quickly got himself into a reserve unit to avoid going to Vietnam! These c***ts always ready to sacrifice other peoples sons, while they sit safe at home spouting war rhetoric They should put these cowardly scum in uniform, give them a gun and stick them in the frontline.. something tells me they would not be quite as keen on war -if they make it back alive!

  29. Hey Netanyahu have take the opportunity to make Bolton said a personal taught and decide on this to make the most controversial announcement of annexation in telling the world that it was not a unilateral decision but made with the Trump administration!!! Who is the real responsible, Netanyahu or Bolton, certainly not Mr Trump. you fake-news media never mist a chance to be what you are.

  30. Why, on GOD'S GREEN EARTH, would you tell the WHOLE WORLD what you plan to ask Bolton? Good LORD, STUPID isn't even IN it with this.

  31. We endure no more than fifteen minutes of 45's Sewage-stream-du-jour. Blame trips, ranting outright lies, x-rated language, genuine bad news. I watch this stuff with a timer. Then tune away to online music, cooking shows, or animal rescue vids. Frankly, I like my head where it is: I'd rather not have it explode.

  32. Another bull sh$t fake news by who else then the fake news generators…
    lol 😂
    Actually The name is rhyming with bull … BULLTON

  33. Trump will try to sue and block any John Bolton book. It may be rigged already though. I don't think Bolton can not be trusted.

  34. Bolton was fired, that guy would never willing give up the power to bomb the crap out of countries. I never watch this guy or msnbc, I tuned in to see if this clown would say, if true, instead he uses ,possibly, could be, maybe and then they have Schiff on.

  35. Better beware as it just may be a book that may never be published and if so might support President Trump.
    Report the news we know to be the case not news that may be the case.
    If such news reporting continues. another apology will be needed and you don't need to make any more apologies for news that has not been substantiated by as you say "the rigorous standards of MSNBC"..
    We will have to wait and see if John Bolton indeed writes a book. Then you can report on it.

  36. I mean autocrat in the American sense such as oliver Wendell Holmes sr.s autocrat at the breakfast table . One who knows there's a democracy but he's the decider ( Bush ii comment ) or the big Daddy. Dont expect Trump to commit permanently to much he will play every situation on a case by case basis.

  37. CAUTION: Lawrence may or may not be telling the TRUTH. Leave Iran alone Adam Schiff. They will sort themselves out with all the US Dollars Obama gave them. Bolton was a WAR MONGER from the Bush Iraq WAR DISASTER. President Trump will not endanger US Military Men and Women on Islam matters. If you pay then the US will protect you only if US People are looked after.

  38. "Hey John we'll give you 120 million dollars if you write a book befire th e 2020 election that makes trump look bad" I'd imagine that's what the conversation would look like and for money people will gladly do it.

  39. Lets not forget when Trump instructed Bolton to say one thing publicly later to have Trump go in the opposite direction after finding out it wasn't popular with most people which Trump also did with other aids

  40. Please stop telling us Trump is still President… can't you make up some fake news and tell us something else…?
    Haha, nevermind.

    Keep reporting on Trump and he'll call it fake…SMH

  41. John Bolton has absolutely no cred and will have nothing to say that will put him in a good light his legacy is millions of dead people.

  42. Anyone who willingly takes up a job with Trump knows that there's only one way to disengage from Trump. It's only by being fired even if it comes well after your resignation.

  43. I find these so called poll reports annoying. I have seen nothing to suggest that Trump will lose in 2020. The majority is with him in a dogmatic way. Talk and polls will not shake his supporters. Nevertheless, it's still important to document for historical purposes, the events as they occur. Newsworthy yes, substantial, no!

  44. The monster will not reap the blood money he is one of the few devils of our times besides Hilary and Lindsay thousands have died and millions are suffering today because of their minds

  45. Why is this lying pr*ck still employed. Rather was fired for doing something similar. Guess CBS has more credibility than this hack news network. Oh , by the way. TRUMP IS GOING TO BE THE PRESIDENT UNTIL JANUARY 2025.
