When's Trump resigning? Probably about a month before his investigation begins.
Of course Bannon will defend Trump's ideas. They agree on everything except Bannon is against foreign wars which was probably the main reason he resigned. The generals have too much power which I don't like either.

If Bannon is a white supremacist why did he say this?

He dismissed the far right as irrelevant and sidestepped his own role in cultivating it: “Ethno-nationalism—it's losers. It's a fringe element. I think the media plays it up too much, and we gotta help crush it, you know, uh, help crush it more.”
“These guys are a collection of clowns,” he added.

Read the whole article and find out how the opposition media got him totally wrong.

Then read the comments from the Alt Right losers about his comments. They aren't happy. I just hope they don't threaten Bannon.

He's referring to the Richard Spencers of the world. Probably 99% of the Trump base doesn't care or even know who Richard Spencer and his ilk are.

They won't ever stop complaining. That's just how fascists roll.

Go take a look at the posts by your fellow deplorable cons about the mother of the girl who was mowed down by a nazi. You have zero moral ground to stand on.

Big deal. It's not like Trump and Bannon can't call each other on the phone after Trump meets with whomever his replacement is.

A week ago it was all about Russians, then came the Nazi's, and now Bannon.

No more Russians. No more Nazis.

They couldn't have choreographed it better.

...who knows, maybe it was.

Next liberals will have to stage some sort of self identity chaos event. They will bus in a bunch of rioters. Then blame Trump.

I'm all for Trump staying the course he's set.

Sweet.
