Sarah Huckabee Sanders just ripped John Bolton to shreds in her new book which is coming out soon.
Sarah’s book titled – “Speaking for Myself” is a firsthand account of working in the White House.
She is not kind to John Bolton and says he was drunk on power who acted like he was president although no one elected him to anything.
Look, if Bolton believes that Trump is a danger why didn’t he testify when it would have mattered? Because he wants to sell books.
Axios has a first look for you at a fiery passage from a book that’s coming this fall from former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, “Speaking for Myself.” She writes that, during President Trump’s state visit to London last year, “Bolton was a classic case of a senior White House official drunk on power, who had forgotten that nobody elected him to anything.”
Sanders tells me that Bolton regularly traveled separately on foreign trips and, in London, disregarded a request to wait so the rest of the staff wouldn’t get stuck in traffic:
“Bolton apparently felt too important to travel with the rest of us,” Sanders writes. “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,” Mulvaney said, according to Sanders. “You’re a f—— self-righteous, self-centered son of a b——!'”
