John Bolton came out publicly to tease his book and make sure that everyone bought a copy. Here’s what he said about the possible censorship of his book from the White House:
Former national security adviser John Bolton decried potential White House “censorship” of his upcoming book in a public discussion on Monday.
Bolton spoke at Duke University in his first appearance since the Senate voted not to hear testimony from him during President Trump’s impeachment trial. He called the parts of his memoir dealing with Ukraine controversy that sparked impeachment “the sprinkles on an ice cream sundae,” The New York Times and CNN reported.
“For all the focus on Ukraine and impeachment trial: to me there are portions of the manuscript that deal with Ukraine — I view that as the sprinkles on an ice cream sundae, in terms of the book,” he reportedly said. “This is an effort to write history. I did the best I can … We’ll see what happens with the censorship.”
His book is under review from the NSC, but parts of it leaked, and now some are wondering if the process will be politicized in order to protect Trump. And that would be pretty stupid, I think, since Bolton could very easily speak out if he thought he was being censored unfairly.
Meanwhile, nearly everyone is crapping on him. Those on the right are shaming him for betraying Trump and those on the left are angry that he won’t betray him enough!
It would be great if nobody bought John Bolton’s book https://t.co/blaTeXd3Ft— Angry Staffer (@AngrierWHStaff) February 18, 2020
Just to be clear, John Bolton finally broke his silence not to tell the world the truth, it was to further promote his book for personal profit. He clearly doesn’t care about our democracy, nor has he ever. I hope no one buys that trashy shit.— Ricky Davila (@TheRickyDavila) February 18, 2020

Please do not buy John Bolton’s book - putting profits over the republic’s future viability is just as egregious as the senators who accepted bribes to acquit Donald Trump. https://t.co/VtTCo3LUFL— Publius (@ThePubliusUSA) February 18, 2020
I beg all of you. Do not, under any circumstance, give John Bolton one dime of your money. https://t.co/oCMHQKp54p— seiZedd tesla & spacex to mass produce ventilators (@Zeddary) February 18, 2020
At this point I wouldn’t be shocked to find out his own bountiful mustache has turned on him…
