BEASTMODE: Bolton Schools CNN Host on the Art of Coups d’État

“It takes a lot of work”

John Bolton delivered an epic humble brag during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Tuesday.

The former adviser to Greatest Living President George W. Bush cited his expertise "as someone who has helped plan coups d’état" abroad to dispel the journalist’s uniformed opinion that "one doesn’t have to be brilliant to attempt a coup," in reference to the January 6 uprising.

"I disagree with that," Bolton said. "As somebody who has helped plan coups d’état—not here but, you know, other places—it takes a lot of work."
