As soon as President Donald Trump announced via tweet that he's replacing national security adviser H.R. McMaster with neoconservative George W. Bush aide John Bolton, Twitter exploded with commentary on what the hawkish new adviser could mean for the country.


"John Bolton as National Security Advisor is the worst case scenario," Pod Save America co-host Tommy Vietor tweeted. "Trump campaigned against the disastrous decision to invade Iraq, but Bolton remains unrepentant and is now arguing to strike North Korea. Disaster."

The Young Turk's Emma Vigeland, meanwhile, noted that national security adviser is "a position that doesn't require Senate confirmation, by the way."
