WATCH: Tucker Carlson Blasts ‘Bureaucratic Tapeworm’ John Bolton, Calls Him ‘Demented’
Tucker Carlson tore into National Security Adviser John Bolton on Friday evening, referring to the Neocon hawk as “demented” and a “bureaucratic tapeworm.”
Bolton has been under fire for his seemingly endless lust for war and death, as he was one of the main cheerleaders for the Iraq War and is now pushing for a war with Iran.
On his show, Carlson took aim at the Neocons who “still wield enormous power in Washington.”
“According to John Bolton, [Iraq’s] a raging success. We killed hundreds of thousands of people, lost thousands of our own troops, spent more than $1 trillion all to eliminate a WMD threat that despite John Bolton’s assurances, never existed in the first place. Bolton is glad we did all that. Really happy about it. That’s demented. Normal people don’t talk about that. There’s nothing normal about John Bolton,” Carlson said.
Carlson also played a clip of Bolton discussing his enormous desire for regime change in Iran.
“I had said for over 10 years since coming to these events that the declared policy of the United States of America should be the overthrow of the Mullah’s regime in Tehran. And that is why before 2019, we here will celebrate in Tehran. Thank you very much,” Bolton said in the clip.
“In other words, last night has been in the works for years. John Bolton is kind of bureaucratic tapeworm. Try as you might, you can’t expel him. He seems to live forever in the bowels of the federal agency reemerging to cause pain and suffering. But critically, somehow, never suffering himself,” Carlson said.
“His life really is Washington in a nutshell. Blunder into obvious catastrophes again and again, refuse to admit blame, and then demand more of the same. That’s the John Bolton life cycle,” Carlson added.
