Big mistake, President Trump, yuuuge.
Bannon out but McMaster in? Trump has forgotten who brought him to the party.
Of everything that has come out of the White House, this is the worst news.
We are done for. Gird your loins for Obama’s third term.
Bannon’s position in the Trump White House was the constant that gave Trump’s base succor.
Steve Bannon is out at White House
By Bob Fredericks
Top presidential adviser and white nationalist bomb thrower Steve Bannon is out of a White House job, a new report said Friday.
President Trump’s Chief of Staff John Kelly wrapped up a review of the West Wing staff and was expected to can the former Breitbart editor, the voice of the alt-right who has the president’s ear, Drudge reported.
“Bannon had one hell of a run,” Matt Drudge tweeted.
Bannon had been on the outs with Trump before, but the president now suspects he was one of the main leakers in the administration, trashing his colleagues in the press.
The notoriously thin-skinned president also resented the publicity Bannon had been getting as the supposed mastermind of Trump’s campaign and upset victory.
One White House source told Axios, “His departure may seem turbulent in the media, but inside it will be very smooth. He has no projects or responsibilities to hand off.”
Bannon in recent days gave interviews to publications including the New York Times where he defended Trump’s controversial comments in the wake of the racial violence in Charlottesville, Va., last weekend.
A senior White House official told Axios that it seemed like Bannon was setting himself up to be a martyr — the white nationalist hero canned by the “globalists.”
A source close to Bannon added: “This week is a good window into what Bannon outside the [White House] would look like: A strong defense of POTUS and ‘fire and fury’ for enemies of The Trump agenda. Get ready for Bannon the barbarian.”
