MSNBC viewers lashed out at the progressive cable news channel after veteran journalist Andrea Mitchell interviewed John Bolton about the Biden administration’s failures in Ukraine.
The former national security advisor in the Trump administration criticized President Joe Biden for failing to proactively prevent Russia’s invasion into Ukraine, a former Soviet republic.
“I think [Russian President] Putin was undoubtedly waiting for a second Trump term. but he’s getting almost effectively what he would have expected then,” said Bolton. “This is gonna be a victory for Russia.”
“You think that what the Biden administration is doing, rallying the NATO allies,” Mitchell replied before getting interrupted.
“It has failed,” Bolton fired back. “The president has said it has failed.
They went on to debate whether NATO was more unified under the real threat of Russian invasion or whether it remained divided, but the viewers were not impressed by Bolton’s presence on the show or Mitchell’s reactions to his critique.
“I don’t want to hear John Bolton’s opinion on what we should be doing with Russia or anything for that matter,” tweeted failed congressional candidate Richard Ojeda.
“Literally the last person on earth who should be giving foreign policy advice right now. Perpetually incorrect bloodthirsty warmonger,” replied YouTuber Kyle Kulinski.
“I would literally interview satan about Russia/Ukraine before even asking John Bolton how he likes his coffee,” read one popular tweet.
“Why would @andreamitchell give air time to a filthy traitor like john bolton? I despise her, for good reason,” read another tweet.
