Trump Regime

Steve Bannon is Out

Written by JM Ashby

Trump's chief strategist and sentient pile of cigarette butts Steve Bannon has reportedly been fired according to the New York Times.

As of Friday morning, the two men were still discussing Mr. Bannon’s future, the officials said. A person close to Mr. Bannon insisted the parting of ways was his idea, and that he had submitted his resignation to the president on Aug. 7, to be announced at the start of this week, but it was delayed in the wake of the racial unrest in Charlottesville, Va.

Mr. Bannon had clashed for months with other senior West Wing advisers and members of the president’s family.

If it's true that there's disagreement over whether Bannon was fired or resigned before he could be fired, I expect leaks about the Trump regime will soon flow through Breitbart where Bannon is expected to return.

In any case, this won't change anything for the rest of us. Trump will still be Trump. He'll still be a blathering, racist buffoon.

    Charlie Pierce had a piece today bearing the trenchant title Why I’m Not Popping Corks Over Steve Bannon’s Exit.

    I agree with Pierce: this is all terribly entertaining, but there are good reasons not to get happy just because Steve Bannon has been fired (or quit or some weird, unnatural hybrid of the two).

    Good riddance to Bannon (and good luck to the White House housekeeping staff: the aroma of brimstone and Ripple will stick around, no matter how much Febreze is used), but he’s only one of the clowns Donald Trump has chosen to surround himself with, and arguably the least dangerous of the lot.

    Well, you know how it goes, Ashby. Once a blathering, racist buffoon, always a blathering, racist buffoon! Would anyone really want it any other way? I wouldn’t, just out of our government!!

    Wilbur is heading back to the nest to lead all the rats in the great revolution to free the poor oppressed white folk from the evil tyranny of Brown skinned people being allowed to vote. Also PC/SJW whatever.

    Drain The Swamp© indeed.

    A ray of sunshine in the sh*t storm that is this FAKE presidency.
    Your last paragraph is it exactly.
    “In any case, this won’t change anything for the rest of us. trump will still be trump. He’ll still be a racist, blathering buffoon.” And treasonous, dishonest, unfit, grifter.

My last month check after working with them for 3 months was $12000… Amazing thing about it was that only requirement for the job is basic typing and reliable internet…

    If only Trump would fire himself.
    It appears that the White House
    is in the process of a self induced
    enema producing a product that
    would be rejected by a cesspool.

  • I get why Priebus didn’t throw Trump under the bus when he left (he’s a wuss). But I doubt Bannon has that problem. I can’t wait.

    Can he pack Trump and Pence in his suitcases on his way out the door?

    • Toolymegapoopoo

      That’s too many sacks of shit for carry-on. He’ll have to check his bag.

        I am sure we could pass around the hat to cover any baggage fees incurred.
