OMG What A Laugh! Guess What Republican Just Vowed To Challenge Trump
You don't have to like Trump to find this funny—But John Bolton, the former National Security Advisor to former President Donald Trump just vowed to challenge Trump with a 2024 campaign of his own for the GOP.
"I think to be a presidential candidate you can't simply say I support the Constitution; you have to say I would oppose people who would undercut it," Bolton told NBC News' "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "We used to have a thing in the House of Representatives called the House Un-American Affairs Committee. I think when you challenge the Constitution itself the way Trump himself has done, that is un-American. I'm prepared to get in the race."
Context: Bolton was responding to Trump's validated outrage following the release of the Twitter files that proved that there were efforts to bury the Hunter Biden laptop story ahead of 2020. The media jumped to claim that Trump suggested the constitution be thrown out, here's what he really said:
"So, with the revelation of MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION in working closely with Big Tech Companies, the DNC, & the Democrat Party, do you throw the Presidential Election Results of 2020 OUT and declare the RIGHTFUL WINNER, or do you have a NEW ELECTION?" Trump posted on his social media platform. "A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution. Our great 'Founders' did not want, and would not condone, False & Fraudulent Elections!"
After the media attacked, Trump clarified his comment further:
"The Fake News is actually trying to convince the American People that I said I wanted to 'terminate' the Constitution," Trump wrote on Truth Social. "This is simply more DISINFORMATION & LIES, just like RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA, and all of their other HOAXES & SCAMS.
"What I said was that when there is 'MASSIVE & WIDESPREAD FRAUD & DECEPTION,' as has been irrefutably proven in the 2020 Presidential Election, steps must be immediately taken to RIGHT THE WRONG. Only FOOLS would disagree with that and accept STOLEN ELECTIONS. MAGA!"
"I'd like to see Shermanesque statements from all the potential candidates," Bolton said. "If I don't see that, I'm going to seriously consider getting in."
