President Donald Trump announced Senior National Security Advisor John Bolton's immediate departure from the Trump administration in a tweet on Tuesday morning. While Trump thanked Bolton for his service, he noted that he "disagreed strongly with many of [Bolton's] suggestions."

Thought by many to be a warmonger, Bolton championed a "maximum pressure" strategy against Iran, meaning he endorsed sanctions and threats against the country to pressure it into submission. The maximum pressure strategy hasn't worked. Like at all.

Back in October 2017 a conspiracy theory made the rounds that at times the White House employed a body double of First Lady Melania Trump for appearances with President Donald Trump. The "double" was almost always seen only from a distance and usually with sunglasses on.

Republicans, and the Trump administration, claimed text messages critical of President Donald Trump that Strzok sent to FBI lawyer Lisa Page were proof positive of an overarching conspiracy against Trump.

He did so with a list of Republican insults hurled very publicly at the President.

Live it up, everyone. The world is going to end... again!

According to Biblical scholar — or conspiracy theorist, depending on whom you ask — Mathieu Jean-Marc Joseph Rodrigue, the world is scheduled to end on June 24.
