No more Russians. No more Nazis.

They couldn't have choreographed it better.

...who knows, maybe it was.
We have the ability to multi task unlike the simpletons who can only bleat Obama! Hilary! The Russian crap isn't going anywhere, nice try.

When I heard him say “I want to deconstruct the administrative state,” (whatever that is) I knew it wouldn’t be long before the dark forces kicked him out of the White House. Rule # 1; never announce you seek radical change, remember it took over 200 years before it was illegal for a respectable man to go down town and buy an attractive 18-year-old woman for whatever purposes he needed her for.

That's why Trump kept him so long. He also warned that he would go after The Drudge Report and McMaster to trash them if he was ousted.

This is just another daily dose of drama associated with the Trump presidency. It sure is entertaining. Wonder what crazy stuff will happen next week, and the week after.
lol

What a fantasy land some of you live in.

So Bannon just broke the record; he was there for about 210 days.

Bannon also outlasted Trump's health care program, which sunk at 144 days, his Muslim ban, which lasted only 1 day, and those 2 were the only things in his campaign promises that even got as far.

His Mexican wall is still an empty promise, as is his infrastructure overhaul.

Flynn only lasted 24 days, and the Mooch set the record at only 11 days.

It makes me wonder what the average life span for the White House staff is.

Steve Bannon out as White House chief strategist - ABC News


One piece of WHITE TRASH gone, now just for the head honcho-Trump!
This is likely only for appearance sake. Everything about this POS Trump is smoke and mirrors. Bannon will use his influence from wherever his office is to direct the Nazi-in-Chief.

To paraphrase the neo-Nazi Richard Dressler in "Sum of All Fears":

You don't fight the Alt-Right *and* the Trump administration, you get the Alt-Right and Trump to fight each other.

Yup. Scaramucci was that dumb, but Bannon? No way.

He just didn't want to go quietly.

I'll be interested to see what moves Bannon makes in the future.
