Welcome to the White House! It seems that John Bolton’s first day on the job might be a little busy, what with the reported airstrikes on Sunday in Syria and all, but he seems pretty excited for it:
Tomorrow I look forward to starting as National Security Advisor, and working with President Trump and his team to keep America safe and secure in these challenging times.

And libs are reacting in the calm and sober way we’d expect:

Into the chaotic dysfunction, Syria, trade wars, mass resignations & firings, and an unhinged president who makes foreign policy by tweet in response to Fox & Friends…enter a reckless warmonger who wants to attack a nuclear North Korea and bomb Iran. What could go wrong? https://t.co/luKtU4aOoT

NIGHTMARE: Bolton is the reason the US is not a party to the Rome Statute and therefore the ICC. The mustache is a walking human rights fail. https://t.co/0D4W1yXTe1

Tomorrow you become @realDonaldTrump’s 3rd National Security Advisor in 445 days.
You will not be his last. https://t.co/Hx1IXgbxhT
