      Why should he do that?

    • @Varekai Ascendant For once you and I agree on something and I’m Republican.

      @Reg Watson In order for this nation to function we Need to have at least two Parties to keep an even keel or we turn into a Dictatorship or are forced to live under authoritarian rule.
      The Republican party need to be ‘reformatted’ and get rid of the bad apples, and yes the Democratic has a few of those as well.

    Tired of hearing Bolton talk since he stayed silent when we needed him most

    • He wasn’t silent. He constantly demanded war on everyone. He was one sick dude.

    • Wigg Picker | July 8, 2020 at 7:21 PM | Reply

      Yup, another serpent mole

    • Wigg Picker 🤣🤣😷

    • I’m gonna play devil’s advocate for a second here and say that maybe Bolton rightly knew it actually wouldn’t make a lick of difference at all and that the Republicans would just acquit Trump, even if Bolton literally said Trump was taking a cut of those Russian bounties on American soldiers in exchange for intelligence he was feeding the Kremlin.

    • @fringelife If this is really the devil’s advocate, then up– yours

  3. Vindman’s retirement is a loss for the country, yet Bolton just sat there doing nothing to be paid for a book deal when it mattered. Shameful.

      @Richard Marsh lol!!! Putin?!!! Hahahahah remember when stuttering Drunk Nancy and all the democrat cultists iminaminaminapeachminted (impeachment) Trump for Mueller’s findings????????? Yeah!!! Didn’t think so. You drink little fella? Go brush yer toof and air up the tires on your house. Your sister will love it

      @Mueller Time

      You still repeating the same gibberish? Trump wasn’t impeached for Mueller’s findings. And he wasn’t impeached for “Russia if you’re listening” either. Does that make him a loyal patriot? Will that stop me from calling you a Vladimir Trump troll, working real hard to divide your country while Putin rubs his hands together? We both know that your approach won’t win any votes for Trump don’t we? It’s purely divisive and not at all persuasive. Like I’m going to join your cause if you talk about my imaginary sister.

      Keep up the good work. 😒

      Name one social program you want or have that Germans under Hitler didn’t have. You can say stupid things like FREE COLLEGE AND SOCIAL SECURITY!!! Free healthcare too!!!

      Then name one gun control policy that Germans had.

      Do societies needs come before the individual? Or individual rights endowed by our creator? Choose wisely Nazi 😉

  5. Thumbs down for putting “buy my book Bolton ” on your show

    • Christopher Carmignani | July 8, 2020 at 5:05 PM | Reply

      And you dont think Vindman will have a book deal? He will be stacked in cash by the time he is 60.

    Crocodile tears. So fake. Bolton traded money for his moral duty to be a witness in the impeachment

    • TheBase1aransas Reporting unlawful conduct in the manner Colonel Vindman is hardly unlawful. In fact it’s a protected process under law as a check against abuse of power. What should be unlawful in the country is the use of your vote to elect a moron and self obsessed mafia wannabe to the office of the President. A slum lord should never have qualified as a candidate. His crimes against NY should have put him in Jail long ago. His misuse of Trump Charity funds should have put him in jail. His misuse of funds donated for the benefit of veterans should have put him in jail. His draft dodging should have put him in jail, as should have paying off strippers with campaign funds. His wife should have cut his nuts off. Put this racist fool out in the streets in January with a vote in November

    • @Alex Hamilton haha no

    If you’d only backed him up. Bolton is a traitor.

  9. Bolton could have been there backing Vindman up.

    He did not.

    He’s on all interviews now but when it mattered he was nowhere to be found, Bolton your a scab!!

    The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. Shame on the republicans.

  12. Julian Crooks | July 8, 2020 at 1:18 PM | Reply

    These Republicans revolt me, they attack people’s patriotism while tearing down our troops when they didn’t have the stones to serve themselves. They have no clue what patriotism is. Anyone that served in the military is a hero for defending this country especially those wounded in combat defending it.

  13. Alfred Peeler | July 8, 2020 at 1:19 PM | Reply

    For the White House to be able to reach into the military this way is terrifying. It appears that the United States has just taken a giant step to becoming a banana republic. However, that is apropos since an ape occupies the White House.

  14. Bolton doesn’t have the right to say this honorable man’s name.

    Putin wanted him out. Putin grinds the organ, trump dances on the leash.

    THIS and the Russian bounties says all we need to know about the way Trump “supports” our troops.

  17. MatchstalkMan | July 8, 2020 at 1:33 PM | Reply

    I’m surprised trump didn’t have Vindman fired so he could withhold his pension payments.

    • jeffrey donaldson | July 8, 2020 at 7:32 PM | Reply

      @Grim Reefer He could call him back to active duty if he says the wrong things as a retired or does a crime. Once back, it would could be court martial for him. UCMJ rules.
