John Bolton, the New National Security Advisor, reportedly said on his first day in the White House nothing but "war," the word "war," repeated over and over when people asked him.
It was reportedly very confusing for the White House cafeteria staff who didn't know if they actually served a dish called war or if he was speaking to them.
Most White House staffers reported that John Bolton would just careen down the West Wing with a marker and on every portrait, he would write the word war. War. Those staffers interpreted this as a gesture of some sort. Although unsure totally what his intentions were, when directly asked, he would only say, "War, war, war." Many were wondering, were about to ask him followup questions, but were fired before they could do so.
