John Bolton An Embarrassment on World Stage: Presides Over Empty Room!

@ 10:28 PM (103 months, 9 days ago)

John Bolton continues to show why he's such an embarrassment to the United States on the international stage.

Bolton couldn't even get confirmed to his position in the Republican-led Senate, and so to get his man, Bush resorted to a recess appointment of Bolton.

Today, in what amounted to a big "screw you" to Bolton by other diplomats, he presided over an empty U.N. Room.  Bolton said "I brought the gavel down at 10. I was the only one in the room."  He was trying to open his first meeting as head of the Security Council .
