OK, BOOMER: White House Says John Bolton’s ‘Advanced Age’ Prevented Him From Accessing Twitter Account

Bolton claims that he was locked out of his Twitter account by the administration.

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham claimed during an appearance on Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs Tonight last week that former national security adviser John Bolton was mistaken in his assertion that he was locked out of his Twitter account by the administration.

Grisham suggested that Bolton’s “advanced age” kept him from having the know-how to navigate the social media platform properly.

“Sometimes, I’ll use my father as an example, somebody who is of an advanced age may not understand that all you have to do is contact Twitter and reset your password if you’ve forgotten it so I’ll just leave it at that,” Grisham said to Dobbs.

Bolton announced last week that his account was “liberated” from White House control and thanked Twitter for helping him get access to it.

Bolton is expected to go on the offense against the Trump administration before the 2020 presidential election. He may have an ax to grind after leaving the White House under less-than-ideal circumstances, as President Trump has trashed the crazed interventionist for the many mistakes he made while serving in the administration.

“So, John is somebody that I actually got along with very well. He made some very big mistakes,” Trump said after Bolton resigned from the administration.

Trump was particularly disappointed with Bolton after his public comments that North Korea would be handled under the “Libyan model.” This almost sabotaged the ongoing peace negotiations between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, perhaps by design. Bolton has urged for belligerence rather than diplomacy in dealing with North Korea for many decades.

“And it set us back, and frankly he wanted to do things — not necessarily tougher than me — You know John’s known as a tough guy. He’s so tough he got us into Iraq … but he’s actually somebody I had a very good relationship with. But he wasn’t getting along with people in the administration that I consider very important,” Trump said.

“As soon as he mentioned that, the Libyan model, what a disaster. Take a look at what happened to Gadhafi,” he added. “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.”

Trump even mocked Bolton for his support of the Iraq war, which Trump once called the greatest mistake in U.S. history.

“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,” he said. “Mr. Tough Guy, you know, you had to go into Iraq. Going into Iraq was something he felt very strongly about.”

Bolton signed a book deal earlier this month worth a stunning $2 million. The book is scheduled to be published before the 2020 presidential election, and will likely be a revenge missive of sorts from the mustachioed warmonger.

President Trump may learn the hard way to never trust a neocon after Bolton’s biased book is released.

Attorney General Bill Barr Folds to the Mob, Claims There is Systemic Racism in Law Enforcement

Barr said that law enforcement being unfair to blacks is a “widespread phenomenon.”

Attorney General Bill Barr has bent his knee to Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists, defending the lie of systemic racism during an interview with ABC News.

“I do think it is a widespread phenomenon that African American males, in particular, are treated with extra suspicion and maybe not given the benefit of the doubt,” Barr said to ABC News Chief Justice Correspondent Pierre Thomas during an exclusive interview.

“I think it is wrong if people are not respected appropriately and given their due,” he added, “and I think it’s something we have to address.”

Barr said that he is cheering on widespread reform in the wake of serial felon drug addict George Floyd’s death during a police encounter.

“Before the George Floyd incident I thought we were in a good place,” he said. “I think that this episode in Minneapolis showed that we still have some work to do in addressing the distrust that exists in the African American community toward law enforcement.”

Barr noted that he hopes Floyd’s death will serve as “a catalyst for the kinds of changes that are needed.”

Although Barr is paying lip service to BLM and throwing law enforcement under the bus, he has not yet joined the bandwagon to defund the police. He instead wants cops to be hamstrung and substituted with social workers in certain situations to deal with suspected criminals.

“We have to think about more investment in the police,” Barr said. “So one of the things we’ve been talking about is trying to direct some of the [Health and Human Services] money and grant programs and sync it up with law enforcement spending so we can enable the departments to have co-responders. That is, social workers and mental health experts who can go on certain kinds of calls to help.”

He cited a recent federal study conducted by the Justice Department’s civil rights division throwing law enforcement under the bus.

“We found, in that case, that there was a drug unit in the Springfield (Mass.) police department that was engaged in a pattern and practice of using excessive force,” Barr said.

Barr offered a very modest criticism of BLM during the interview for refusing to focus on the thousands of black lives that are taken by other black people.

“I also think [the phrase] is being used now – it is distorting the debate to some extent, because it is used really to refer almost exclusively to black lives that are lost to police misconduct,” he said. “Then you compare it to 8,000 homicides in the African American community, those are black lives that matter, too. And those are lives that are protected by the police.”

Barr’s response shows why Fox News host Tucker Carlson is saying that Republicans have failed abysmally in their response to a nationwide terror campaign from the Left. The weak response from the administration may cost Trump re-election in November.
