Stephen Colbert and John Bolton's heated interview: 'You've really insulted me now'
The day his new book The Room Where It Happened was published, John Bolton appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where former national security advisor and Colbert got into a heated debate, starting with Bolton's reason for President Trump in 2016 support.
In his honor, Colbert started the interview by asking Bolton if he had thick skin. When Bolton pointed out, Colbert said, "Well, that'll make the interview easier." "Fair warning," Bolton replied with a smile.
It got hot for the first time when Bolton explained why he wanted to support Trump in 2016.
"Look at the comparison as I did with Hillary Clinton in 2016," said Bolton, "look at the comparison with Joe Biden and say whatever we think of him [Trump], he won't be a democratic one Be an issue, especially this one. " Days, under the pressure of the left. Look, I bought this argument in 2016 ... "Colbert laughed, then interrupted Bolton and said," No, he will be under pressure from Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping [Just a few minutes earlier, Bolton said that many of the world's leading figures, including Putin and Jinping think they can manipulate Trump]. He is ready to sell the interests of the American people for his own re-election. What could be worse in Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden's philosophy than betraying your country to an enemy foreign leader, sir? "
Bolton said he voted for Trump in 2016 because he thought it was worth trying, but he would neither vote for Trump nor Biden in the upcoming elections. After 17 months of work, he could not re-elect Trump the white house. Bolton has gone so far as to say that he hopes Trump is a one-year president for the country. Colbert was clearly frustrated with Bolton's reasoning because he doesn't think Trump is so hard to figure out.
"I think what's annoying is that Donald Trump didn't do anything that surprised me," said Colbert. "My rule is that everything you think about Donald Trump is probably true because he is not deep enough to get your socks wet. He is incredibly readable. That is why the house lost when he ran casinos. It there's nothing to learn about him, so he's essentially a boring person. "
After the shame, Colbert Bolton asked: "How did you not know beforehand that he was only weak?" "I couldn't believe it was that bad," replied Bolton. "And I know other people say they saw it from the start ..." "But you're an international negotiator," Colbert interrupted. "How can you be naive? You are dealing with the worst people in the world. "" You really insulted me by calling me naive, "replied Bolton, before admitting that he was wrong about Trump." Look, I thought it was possible to work with someone. I thought they would surely want to learn about the complexities of arms control and negotiations and the like, and as I explain in detail in the book, it turned out that this is not true. ”
In the book, Bolton claims that Trump has committed several criminal acts, including the consideration for Ukraine that led to his impeachment. Several Republicans agreed that this had happened, but voted to acquit the president. But Bolton blamed the Democrats for the failed conviction for dealing with the impeachment, and made a point that Colbert had to agree to.
"You have already said that it was a fair case against him and that it was a criminal offense," said Colbert. "They only say that far from not being invited to a cross-party trial, today's Republican Party is so poisonous and biased that even though they know that it is guilty, they are not the best for the American people will do. "" No, I think it was the Democrats who created this scenario, "replied Bolton. "They wanted to hurry so that the impeachment process didn't interfere with the Democratic President's nomination." Colbert admitted that Bolton was right. "I agree with you," said Colbert. "That was a mistake"
The late show with Stephen Colbert is broadcast on weekdays at 11:35 p.m. on CBS.
