Former Trump Press Secretary Sarah Sanders Slams John Bolton in Her New Book
Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has written a book in which she slams Trump’s former national security advisor John Bolton.
Bolton was a classic case of a senior White House official drunk on power, who had forgotten that nobody elected him to anything.
Bolton apparently felt too important to travel with the rest of us. As we were ready to depart for the Winfield House [the U.S. ambassador’s residence in London] “we loaded onto a small black bus.
We waited and watched as Bolton sped by and left us in the dust. The discussion on the bus quickly moved … to how arrogant and selfish Bolton could be, not just in this moment but on a regular basis.
If anyone on the team should have merited a motorcade it was [Treasury Secretary] Mnuchin, but he was a team player and didn’t seem to mind traveling with the rest of us.
Often Bolton acted like he was the president, pushing an agenda contrary to President Trump’s.
When we finally arrived at the Winfield House, [chief of staff] Mick Mulvaney, typically laid-back and not one to get caught up in titles or seniority, confronted Bolton and unleashed a full Irish explosion on him.
Let’s face it, John. You’re a f—— self-righteous, self-centered son of a b——!
That epithet … was the culmination of months of Bolton thinking he was more important and could play by a different set of rules than the rest of the team. … Bolton backed down and stormed off.
