NSA Bolton: Trump Doesn't Take Kim Jong Un At His Word Despite Saying He Does

While appearing on two Sunday programs, NSA John Bolton seemed to have trouble personally defending his boss.

John Bolton on Fox News via Aaron Rupar:

Wow -- On Fox News Sunday, Bolton really struggled to defend Trump's comment about taking Kim's word that he wasn't involved in Warmbier's death "When he says 'I'm going to take him at his word,' it doesn't mean he accepts it as reality. It means he accepts that's what Kim said"

John Bolton On CNN via Aaron Rupar:

TAPPER: Do you take Kim Jong Un at his word, like Trump does re: Warmbier's death?
BOLTON: The president takes him at his word
T: How about you?
B: My opinion doesn't matter. That's his view
