Hill Tweet Blues

John Bolton titled his book, The Room Where it Happened. But the room where it happened was the room where the impeachment hearings took place. Bolton was nowhere in sight. People like Fiona Hill were. In her recent conversations with The New Yorker’s Adam Entous, “she offered a unique look at the dysfunction, the misogyny, and the corruption that have proliferated in Trump’s White House. She remained convinced that public service was a necessary and noble calling, but worried that partisan politics was hobbling the country and endangering its security. ‘We’re doing this to ourselves now,’ she said. ‘The Russians don’t have to do a thing.'” What Fiona Hill Learned in the White House. “After Betsy DeVos, the Education Secretary, was interviewed on ’60 Minutes,’ Trump complained that she wasn’t attractive enough. When officials were discussing the possibility of a new position for Nikki Haley, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Trump said he didn’t like how her cheeks looked. He complained to officials that Kirstjen Nielsen, the Secretary of Homeland Security, wasn’t sufficiently aggressive toward migrants—and she was too short … some of Trump’s top advisers, including Reince Priebus, his chief of staff, began referring to Hill as ‘the Russia bitch.'”
