If you’ve been terribly bored with the impeachment proceedings mainly because the impeachment proceedings are boring, then let me catch you up. The new thing is how John Bolton wrote a story about what a big meanie-pants Trump is and that Trump totally withheld money from Ukraine and thus, sub-textually speaking, Trump should be canned. The Great One, Mark Levin, just added a little wrinkle in the form of this video of John Bolton praising Trump’s phone call with Ukraine President Zelensky.
2.And this is an interview with John Bolton describing the president's conversations w/ the president of Ukraine as warm & cordial in Aug 2019.If he thought at the time that the president was stiff-arming the Ukrainians, he had a funny way of showing itpic.twitter.com/fXekPCD6hH

Oh boy, I think this is what we the kids call “an awkward moment.”
The media was hardly pro-Trump in August 2019. If John Bolton was truly concerned Donald Trump was flagrantly abusing the laws of these United States, in ways categorized as either high crimes or misdemeanors, why not at least drop a little breadcrumb? Why not at least use one of those dogwhistles the left harps on about? Heck, if Bolton was trying to sell a book eventually, why not at least tease that “well, I can’t comment on exactly what happened on that phone call… at this time”? Yet nothing even remotely close was even uttered.
Instead, Bolton seems to stamp his approval all over Trump’s handling of Ukraine. I think this is what the kids call “egg on the face.” Yes? I do want to make sure I’m up on my lingo.
