Trump Fires John Bolton Over Twitter
With no warning, President Trump announced on Tuesday that John Bolton, the bellicose national security adviser whose instinct for foreign intervention has clashed with the president’s relative dovishness, is no longer working in the White House.
Bolton was Trump’s third national security adviser, after Michael Flynn (who may be on his way to prison) and H.R. McMaster (whom Trump apparently now misses). Deputy National Security Adviser Charlie Kupperman, a close aide of Bolton’s, was announced as his temporary replacement. Bolton responded to the news of his departure almost immediately on Twitter, seeming to dispute the details of how, exactly, he was let go. Source
Bolton unloads on Trump’s foreign policy behind closed doors
John Bolton, President Donald Trump’s fired national security adviser, harshly criticized Trump’s foreign policy on Wednesday at a private lunch, saying that inviting the Taliban to Camp David sent a “terrible signal” and that it was “disrespectful” to the victims of 9/11 because the Taliban had harbored al Qaeda. Bolton also said that any negotiations with North Korea and Iran were “doomed to failure,” according to two attendees.Source
UPDATED STATEMENT - SEPTEMBER 18, 2019At approximately 8:30 a.m., there was an explosion in the school's boiler room while an outside contractor was preparing the boiler for the winter months. The explosion caused a partial collapse of the smokestack adjacent to Allan Building. One student sustained a minor injury. The student was evaluated at a local hospital and released. Two outside contractors also sustained minor injuries; one of them was transported to a local hospital for evaluation as well. Shortly after the explosion, the campus was deemed safe by first responders; however, McDonogh decided to take the safest course of action and students were dismissed early. This afternoon, the area around the smokestack and the boiler room was fenced off, and a demolition contractor began removing debris and reducing the smokestack to a safe height based on the specifications of a structural engineer. This work will be completed tonight; therefore, school will open on time tomorrow. The exact cause of the explosion is still being investigated, but it is important to note that the boiler has been shut down and the area in question is now safe and secure. Source

Boiler room explosion at elite Maryland school blows the top off the building's smokestack, sending debris flying, and injuring one student and two adults
An explosion rocked the boiler room of a prestigious Maryland school on Wednesday morning, injuring a student and two contractors working on site at the time. Baltimore County Fire Department spokesman Travis Francis said one child and one adult were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries at the McDonogh School in Owings Mills. A second adult was evaluated but not hospitalized, Francis said.The injured male student has since been released from the hospital after being treated for minor injuries inflicted by falling debris. An email from a school spokeswoman to parents said the boiler room blast occurred at 8.30am as unspecified work was being performed by an outside contractor on campus. The impact blew off the top part of a building's smokestack, also known as the shot tower, but there was no fire. Senior Roc Damico, 18, told The Baltimore Sun he was in a different building on campus when he heard a loud noise. 'It was a scary experience,' the 18-year-old told the paper. 'Everyone was kind of distraught.' Source
