This is how journalists must remind Republicans about their complicity. Katy Tur really laid it on John Bolton in an effective manner.

Katy Tur nails John Bolton

See full episodes here.

"You said it was Trump's taint," Katy Tur asked John Bolton. "Doesn't the taint extend many members of the Republican Party who have said that they didn't see that tweet or they didn't hear that sound? Nobody takes him literally. They just went along because they wanted those judges confirmed. Or they wanted tax legislation passed.

Bolton replied with a silly answer. He claimed that you could not attribute Trump to everybody else. He claimed Trump is an aberration of American politics. He said while it resulted in a tragedy (an insurrection), it is but Washington politics. Yes. He said that. There are dead people and a sacked Capitol, and he calls applying responsibility to those acts, Washington politics. Katy Tur did not allow John Bolton to get away with the statement. She pointed out that Trump, the leader of the Republican Party, was the leader of the insurrection against America. More importantly, Republicans did not keep him in check and instead coddled his behavior. They were his enablers. In the end, Bolton had to admit that in fact the election was not stolen. He also came to the realization that it will take a long time for the Republican Party to repair itself.

Some decisions or actions have resulted in death(s) and destructions.

Maybe one day you do a program about economic terrorism for which many millions of people have suffered, especially children and elderly. Illegal sanctions which violated international accords must be lifted, during pandemic. While many members of OEN remained silent.

Killing innocent people must stop.

Moreover, you have not done any programs on Coronavirus vaccines full of garbage such as mercury in them.

Seriously ? Some unknown Journalist interviews one of the biggest criminals that USED to serve in higher echelons of U.S. Government. What does that say for the Journalist ? She must be pretty low on the ladder of creditability, if she thinks she can get mileage from inteviewing this scumbag. Why do Journalists in the U.S. constantly give screen time to these criminal has beens ???

I agree with Eddy Schmid that media should not interview criminals who promoted killings, destructions, and encouraged illegal sanctions which violate(d) international accords.
