I'd call him a political genius but for the fact that he bet on such an obviously inadequate horse. That was an astoundingly bad decision for a man who is a born kingmaker.
I believe Bannon's real goal was to raise his profile to leverage his next venture in right wing media. The firings at Fox News have left a void that Bannon can fill with his own thing. You already see it in this forum, large numbers of the alt-right are not happy with Fox News.

Bannon knew that Trump was not a long term gig. Trump has zero loyalty to anyone other than himself.

I'm more interested in what the left will do. They were the ones claiming Bannon was everything wrong with the world when Trump won the election and demanded his head. Now that he's gone I imagine they will calm down and stop being so hysterical. Right?

He has to last 4 years first. I would worry about 2017 not 2020. Read what Newt said today.

Newt Warns Trump: 'Serious Changes' | The Daily Caller

Interesting piece written by Roger Stone on Bannon yesterday. If all is true best move Trump has made so far is firing Bannon.

The phrase, "Alt Right" became mainstream when Hillary said it in her speech. You know it. I know it. Everybody knows it.
OMG it's Hillary's fault! I should have known that was coming.

The term alt-right originates from Richard Spencer. It is the name of his blog, which has been active since 2010.
