Trump’s appointment of John Bolton as national security advisor marks the start of the second season of the ridiculous drama that is this administration.

Except that this is real life and innocent people could die because a crazed ideologue will be advising our president on foreign policy. I had harbored hope that we could muddle through the next few years without this president sparking a true catastrophe. That could still happen, but I’m feeling less confident after this evening’s developments.
