Bannon's angle is always Bannon.

I mean I used to like the guy but after the Roy Moore debacle and his recent pettiness, he's not looking very good

Scaramucci's assessment was right on the money.

Obama was a sitting President at the time. Yes, Presidents are allowed to discuss policy with other countries.

Obama was correct in stating he would have more flexibility after the election.

He did have more flexibility. He imposed sanctions.

Bannon and the Trumps tearing the party apart. Love it.

Maybe we will get back a sane GOP after this, and we can go back to serious debates about actual policy.
