I thought Trump hired him because he looked good on TV, which is odd considering the mustache. YMMV. You see him and think, where's the rest of the barbershop quartet?

It has not been 24 hours and you are clearly cheating on your dopamine fast. Now you need to start over.

He’s Wilfred Brimley with a wasting disorder.

I meant physically and in terms of character. I think I saw him in person once, but I was quite drunk. Or it might’ve been a nightmare.

Correction: It must be noted, he does have a form of integrity. He wants to start horrible wars everywhere and doesn’t hide that desire at all. Ya gotta give him that.

Shit, you're right. I feel like one of those people who can't stop posting on Instagram about their digital detox.

This is a very fair point. He seems to have more integrity than most people in the Administration. He kept telling Trump to bomb people, and so on, and he kept at it even after it became clear that Trump is a bully who doesn't want to get in a fight. So he got himself canned. Someone with less integrity would have told Trump what he wanted to hear.

The actual detox is even more important.

You must do a “juice shred”! #newyou #cleanse #bestlife #blessed

There’s a line, “The best lack all conviction, while the worst...”

I find this allows me to both feed my ego and justify apathy.

In retrospect, the Yeats seminars probably did not help with the depression. I should’ve gone with ee cummings.

Whenever I hear Bolton's name in some kind of redeeming context, I nod and wait.

Within a weak, his true nature will always reveal itself.
