Joe Scarborough went after newly appointed national security adviser John Bolton for being oblivious and said his appointment goes against everything President Donald Trump stood for, Tuesday on “Morning Joe.”
“It goes against everything Donald Trump once again promised working class voters,” Scarborough said. “I’m not going to fight wars over there. I’m going to get people that will help us make America great again here. And Donald Trump had an ongoing battle the entire campaign on whether he’s supported the Iraq war or not. And he called getting into Iraq the stupidest thing the United States had done. And he hires a guy who may be the last Japanese soldier on a pacific island in 1957 fighting World War II.”
“[Bolton’s] still — he is that — he is that — that Japanese soldier that still thinks World War II is going on,” Scarborough concluded. “He still believes that the United States did the right thing in invading Iraq when everybody else will now say including myself who supported the war at the beginning and 70 percent of Americans who supported the war at the beginning — it was an unmitigated disaster.”
