The gone mustachioed hawk & alternative comedy (E297)
US President Donald Trump’s sacking of his National Security Advisor John Bolton sent shock waves through the administration that have reverberated around the world. The walrus mustachioed veteran, described by US right-wing shock jock Tucker Carlson as a “bureaucratic tapeworm,” has served in every Republican administration since the 1970s.The perennial hawk Bolton’s tipping point was reached when he clashed with Trump over meeting a representative of the Taliban at Camp David. To analyze what the 45th high profile departure from the 45th president's administration might mean for US foreign policy, Sputnik welcomed military and security expert Charles Shoebridge aboard.
Alternative comedy in Britain has long been the preserve of the left and liberal comedians with politically correct humour having cornered the market. Fresh from appearances at the Edinburgh Fringe, Sputnik welcomed upcoming comedian Alistair Williams to examine the lie of the comedic landscape, Brexit, and all things humorous.
