"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.

He also came to the realization that it will take a long time for the Republican Party to repair itself.
