The firing of mustachioed war monger John Bolton from the Trump administration has exposed the enemies of President Donald Trump’s “America First” foreign policy, particularly radio host Mark Levin.
Levin bills himself as a constitutionalist to his confused base of listeners, but is in all actuality a neoconservative warmonger who has been cheerleading for illegal war in Iran for over a decade now. He focused his anguish today on Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who celebrated Bolton’s firing with most everyone in America.

Bolton spent most of his time as national security adviser trying to drag the U.S. into another costly Middle East war. He promised regime change in Iran by the end of the year.

Unfortunately for Bolton, serious push-back within the Trump administration rendered him unable to achieve his demented goals. Levin is angry about the dismissal, as he shares the same neocon foreign policy ideals as Bolton. Levin was a proponent of the Iraq war, a blunder that President Trump calls the worst in America’s history.
Levin also used to be a “Never Trumper” who bashed the President before he made it into office for his non-interventionist leanings on the campaign trail.
“He sounds like a radical kook,” Levin said of Trump’s suggestion that former President George W. Bush lied about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction.
“To have the leading Republican nominee for president of the United States to make these statements, and he’s been praised by Code Pink. He should be praised by Code Pink and every kook organization out there and every left-wing kook organization that hates America,” Levin added.
“You’re a liar! Bush did not lie about weapons of mass destruction in order to get us into that war. And he is not responsible for 9/11, or those towers coming down. You’ve crossed the line one too many,” Levin said in an angry rant addressed to Trump.
Trump has largely ignored the likes of Levin while dealing with matters of foreign policy. He continued expressing his dismay with his former employee Bolton at the White House today.
“So, John is somebody that I actually got along with very well. He made some very big mistakes,” Trump said.
“As soon as he mentioned that, the Libyan model, what a disaster. Take a look at what happened to Gadhafi,” Trump elaborated about Bolton’s incompetence. “I don’t blame Kim Jong Un for what he said after that. And he wanted nothing to do with John Bolton. And that’s not a question of being tough. That’s a question of being not smart to say something like that.”
“John wasn’t in line with what we were doing and actually in some cases he thought it was too tough what we were doing. Mr. Tough Guy, you know, you had to go into Iraq. Going into Iraq was something he felt very strongly about,” Trump added.
Meanwhile, Sen. Paul is being tapped by President Trump to handle delicate peace negotiations with Iran. Neocons like Levin and Bolton see their influence waning rapidly with the administration, while credible non-interventionists like Paul see their stock on the rise.
