Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders takes aim at John Bolton in her upcoming memoir, claiming the former national security adviser was self-centered and "drunk on power." "Bolton was a classic case of a senior White House official drunk on power, who had forgotten that nobody elected him to anything," Sanders writes in an excerpt of

"Speaking for Myself" obtained by Axios and published on Monday. 

Sanders describes one example in which the White House team traveled to London alongside President Trump for his state visit in 2019, and Bolton left in a separate motorcade for the U.S. ambassador's residence ahead of the rest of the staff.

"Bolton apparently felt too important to travel with the rest of us," Sanders wrote, according to Axios.
