Ex Aide To John Bolton Says “Deep In Bolton’s Heart, He Believes Trump Is A Moron”

A former long time aide to Donald Trump’s National Security Adviser John Bolton claims that “deep in his heart,” Bolton “believes the president is a moron.”


The New Yorker published the quotes in a profile of Bolton on Monday, which also included statements from an anonymous Western diplomat saying Bolton “had to cut his balls off” and give them to Trump in order to get his West Wing position.

The article by Dexter Filkins quotes Mark Groombridge, who worked with Bolton for 15 years and advised him while Bolton served as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations under President George W. Bush.

“John is thinking, ‘To the extent I can modify or mollify the President’s actions, I will,’” Groombridge argued. “He is truly a patriot. But I wonder how he goes into work every day, because deep in his heart he believes the president is a moron.”

Given that “Trump does not want war,” the diplomat argued Bolton must have had to work hard to convince Trump to hire him, saying “to get the job, Bolton had to cut his balls off and put them on Trump’s desk.”
