Chimpyrenominates John “Mustache Ride” Bolton to be US ambassador to the UN.
Na. Gonna. Happen.
Yes, maybe — just maybe — Lincoln Chafee will give his constituents the same finger they gave him on Tuesday by flip-flopping and giving Bolton a thumbs-up in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, but there is NO WAY Bolton gets through this Lame Duck Senate. Even if Bolton’s nomination does get out of committee his ass will be filibustered. Count on it.
Word has just reached me from a well-placed source that the White House has continued to push John Bolton’s confirmation prospects as US Ambassador to the United Nations despite the election outcome.
Another highly placed source has informed me that in just a few minutes Senator Lincoln Chafee is calling a press conference to state categorically that he will not support John Bolton’s confirmation in the upcoming lame duck session.
The Bolton confirmation will be officially dead in a few minutes.
