COLBERT: “First of all, World War six? “Operation Tokyo drift”? Also, if everything Bolton said is “Nasty and untrue,” how can it also be classified? That would certainly change “Mission: Impossible.” Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is nasty and untrue. This tape will self-destruct in five seconds. I lied. It’s two. Trump also tweeted, “Why didn’t John Bolton complain about this ‘nonsense’ a long time ago, when he was very publicly terminated? He said— not that it matters— nothing!”
