Steve Bannon is out

I so want to know if he was fired in a car after getting out of a plane.

For one moment there seeing the headline I thought “Has he revealed that he’s really a gay Marxist who has been taking the piss out of the Right for years and winding them up to make people take notice of the threat they present” - and then I discover that no, it’s a continuation of Trump’s belief that being President is the same as an orchestrated TV show in which he fires someone every week.
Would I say I am disappointed?

Allegedly he resigned, more than 10 days ago.

And Trump dissolved his Manufacturing Council before any of the CEOs left it.

Earlier today I had a minor mental aberration and read Trump as “Turnip”. Then I thought: understandable, yellow on top and carbohydrate for brains.

For now, I am reluctant to believe anything beyond Steve Bannon is “out”.

The ever-churning cabinet is a hallmark of autocrats. Everyone loves palace intrigue. Look at all the other “fired” people still stanning like mad for 45. Look at how we stop paying attention to what they’re up to, assuming they have no more connection.

I don’t trust this one bit.

He’s gone? Well that’s a darn shame. :wink:

Part of me wonders whether he is just so senile that he thinks this is the next season of The Apprentice and he’s going to try to fire a new person every week until literally every other person in the government is gone and Jared Kushner is the last man standing…

Today is the day Trump finally became the President.

Didn’t say I believe it, just that it’s one of the things being said.

*lolz

And you say you have “no sense of humor…”

I’ve seen fast food joints with less staff turnover.

As mentioned upthread, I too am worried “out” just means “unofficial”.

Oh, I believe everything that comes out of Turnip Towers. Why, just like the White Queen, sometimes I believe as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

In the bit talking about video games, that article calls him “Gannon”. That may be a typo but it makes me realize, only now, that amid the many names mocking Trump we could have been calling him Bannondorf the whole time. What a waste.

[quote]Bannon, his allies and the site’s staffers have not been subtle about what is likely to happen now.

Joel Pollak, a senior editor-at-large at Breitbart, tweeted “#WAR,” a reference to the site’s early days and the mission statement of its founder, Andrew Breitbart.

A person who recently spoke with Bannon told CNNMoney that the now-former White House chief strategist will not stay quiet on the sidelines.

“It will be Bannon the barbarian,” the person said. “He’s not going to go out peacefully.”[/quote]

This could be seismic.

i know you meant it in the sense that bannon was running things. but it’s also funny in the sense that every - single - time some controversy erupts, media commentators think somehow, surely this time, trump will become more presidential and mainstream.

yes. he could be really turning a corner now. this could mark a big change in the administration. we’ve wondered before if it could happen, even back on the campaign trail, but this time it seems like he really might be changing.
