Today's lesson kids, DON'T hire family members as part of your presidential cabinet

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner 'Helped Push' Bannon Out: Source

"The aftermath of the president’s headline-making comments – including that there were “a lot of bad people” among the anti-racist counter-protestors at the rally – “there has been tension among the whole family,” the source tells PEOPLE.

“[Ivanka and Jared] have some control, but they weren’t elected President, so it’s difficult,” says the source, adding that they’re concerned about “how they will be seen” by the Jewish community."

The one thing I'll give Bannon credit for is that unlike Limbaugh, Hannety, Coulter and all the other BS artists, Bannon actually did put some time in the government (well, six months anyway). Regardless of how toxic the man is he at least got out from behind the computer keyboard or microphones and did a real live shift in the hallowed halls. That's not for nothin'.

Now that he's proved to be a failure at that, there's really not much point listening to anything else the man has to say from here on out. He tried, he blew it, now go away...

Haven't read all the posts, but the question is: The left kept hammering away that Bannon runs the WH.
If he did, then why did he get fired? Why didn't he fire Trump?

Let's see how the left spins this now. See if Bannon doesn't become the left's darling from here on in.

I am not on the left but I believe Bannon pulled all the strings. Watch Trump fall even harder now that he is gone.

Sorry to disillusion you, but Bannon will never be a hero of mine.

Although you can bet that if he ever publishes a tell-all about his WH experience, I will damn sure read it. And if I run across some juicy information in it that I can use to rebut a silly c-d post, I will damn sure use it.

Bannon wanted to pull the strings. But he didn't. He was a stumbling block.

They could make a mini series out of it.

Ivanka and Jared spearheaded the anti-Bannon faction within the WH that got him fired. Bannon never learned the biggest lesson: family comes first. He thought he could wield more influence, but in the end, Ivanka and Jared served him the ultimate turd pie. It's ok, Bannon left volubtarily, and claims he will continue advocating for Trump outside the WH. No need to hyperventilate like Ann Coulter on Twitter.

yeah you should have read the posts. plenty of us left leaning folk predicted your lot would condemn and belittle bannon as soon as he was out...

you guys do it to everyone who leaves or is booted...

and btw if you read a little before posting you would know the right claims that bannon left and was not kicked... because bannon can do more from the sidelines.. (i dont believe it at this point)

I happen to like Coulter. She's outrageous and says it like it is.

I've never said a word about Bannon. However, his comment about NK and 'no military solution' was totally out of line and undermining the President and the Administration. That's where he overstepped the line.

He 'left' by 'mutual agreement'. I seriously doubt that he's going to work in support of Trump. He will work for Bannon, and none of you on the left liked what you think Bannon stands for. The left wanted him out, so consider what he will be working for now, unfettered.
