Ex-National Security Advisor John Bolton said President Joe Biden “nailed” it in criticizing former President Donald Trump as a “f**king a**hole.”
Politico disclosed some of the vulgar terms Biden uses on Thursday. According to the outlet, the president calls Trump a “sick f**k,” among other things, in private.
CNN’s John Berman asked Bolton about Biden’s assessment of Trump on Friday.
According to the transcript obtained by Mediaite, Breman began: “New reporting on how President Biden really feels about Donald Trump behind closed doors, Politico writes, quote, ‘the president has described Trump to longtime friends and close aides as a sick F who delights in other’s misfortunes, according to three people who have heard the president use the profane description. According to one of the people who has spoke with the president, Biden recently said of Trump, what a blinking blank hole the guy is.'”
“I’m joined now by former national security adviser under then-President Trump, Ambassador John Bolton, who has a new forward for his memoir, ‘The Room Where It Happened.’ That forward, titled ‘The Room Where It Will Happen Again’ in the first line, is ‘Donald Trump may well be reelected president this November, becoming only the second person to win nonconsecutive terms.'”
“Ambassador, thank you so much for being with us that Politico reporting on the choice words that President Biden uses to describe Donald Trump, how closely does that align with your view?”
Bolton responded quickly and forcefully, never letting up.
“Well, I think in personality terms, I think the President Biden has it pretty well nailed.”
“But I would just say this. It’s not the personality of Donald Trump that’s the problem. It’s his lack of competence to do the job, the personalities unpleasant. But many people say, oh, we can we can deal with the personality. I like something else.”
“It’s not the personality that’s the problem. He doesn’t understand the job, particularly in the national security space. He didn’t learn much in the first four years. He certainly hasn’t learned anything since then.”
