He looks leaky, TBH

Is Steve Bannon about to FINALLY get visited by the men in the White House who show up to take away your badge and escort you off the property with your dick in your hand? MAYBE! Of course, Bannon seems to have a sneaky way of manipulating himself back into Donald Trump’s good graces, so we’ll believe it when we see it.

A number of stories have led us to this point, about how Bannon and his “alt-right” Nazi pals represent one faction of the White House, whereas Jared Kushner leads the opposing faction, the one that isn’t full of Nazis. Earlier this year, Bannon called Kushner a “cuck” (you DO NOT call the president’s son-in-law a “cuck”) and Trump has reportedly been pissed that Bannon steals the limelight from him, by being on the cover of Time magazine and whatnot, and because everybody calls him “President Bannon.”

But now there are a couple of other factors at play, and things are legitimately looking bad for Bannon. For one thing, General John Kelly, Trump’s Marine chief of staff boyfriend, is reportedly fucking DONE with all the drama in the White House, and drama, thy name is Steve Bannon. Also, according to Axios (the website with the three-sentence investigative reports) Trump thinks Bannon is a big hairy pock-marked leaker.

Bannon didn’t get to go on Trump’s Bedminster staycation, where big General John has been holding meetings about turning the untrainable Trump White House into a seamless operation that actually accomplishes things. (Good luck.) According to Politico, Bannon’s name just keeps coming up as a “problem.” We imagine that’s happening even more now, after a weekend of domestic Nazi terrorism in Charlottesville has put a spotlight on the Nazi white supremacist contingent in the White House.

The role of chief strategist Steve Bannon has come under particular scrutiny in several conversations, particularly because he has a large staff, including an outside public relations expert, but no specific duties. […]

He has heard a number of complaints about Bannon, who has remained in Washington during the president’s stay in Bedminster, and was displeased by a TV performance from Sebastian Gorka, a national security aide, who questioned Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s comments about the use of military force against North Korea.

Now, will Kelly get his way? Will he convince Trump that yes, for real, this Bannon dude, who whispers in your ear and controls you like a puppet, is a big problem? Mayyyyybe.

On the one hand, The Daily Beast reports that Bannon has been telling all his White House buddies that he’ll be sticking around because Trump is “one of us,” by which he means that at heart, Donald Trump is a white nationalist neo-Nazi fuckstain from hell. Maybe that is why Trump just can’t bring himself to say Nazis in Charlottesville are bad!

On the other hand, Trump is mad AGAIN that Bannon is stealing all his thunder — did you hear about that new sexxxy book by Joshua Green that’s ALL ABOUT HIM? — and he’s pretty sure Bannon is the one leaking stories about National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, whose head Trump’s deplorable “alt-right” Breitbart supporters want on a platter for the crime of being too sane.

So is Bannon really actually on his way out? Unclear. Politico is hedging:

Though several presidential aides said they expect the new chief of staff to push Bannon out in the coming weeks, Bannon has survived many ups and downs in the Trump White House and has consciously lowered his profile over the past two months to avoid angering the president.

Meanwhile, Anthony Scaramucci, fresh off some much needed downtime after his 56-minute career as the White House Communications Director, made the rounds this weekend to talk shit about Bannon on the TV, and even went as far as to blame Bannon (he called it the “Bannon-bart influence” on the White House) for the administration’s shitty response to Charlottesville’s weekend of Nazi terrorism. To his credit, Scaramucci called the incident what it was, and said Bannon’s comfy relationship with white supremacy/nationalism is “inexcusable.”

H.R. McMaster also called the Charlottesville events terrorism in an appearance on “Meet The Press,” during which Chuck Todd THREE TIMES asked him if he could still work with Bannon, and THREE TIMES McMaster ducked the question like a common question-ducker. We’ll take that as a NUH UH.

The question here is whether Kelly ultimately gets his way with Trump, or if Bannon gets lumped in with Trump’s Twitter account inside Trump’s basket of non-negotiables, things Kelly isn’t allowed to touch.

    Is Steve Bannon about to FINALLY get visited by the men in the White House who show up to take away your badge and escort you off the property with your dick in your hand?

    He’ll have to pry his dick from his cold, dead lips first.

    • Meanie-meanie, tickle a person

      Reached for comment by phone, Mr Bannon replied “Mmmrfflffmffmffmmnaffphtagn!”

      • Msgr_MΩment

        Mr. Bannon has resigned to spend more time with his penis.

      • SprinklemagicResistancebuns

        He was dangerously close to summoning a Great Old One.

        Maybe that’s not such a bad idea.

  • Hither and Yawn

    Getting things done? Ha! Trump treats his administration like a reality show. I wouldn’t be surprised if the “teams” pulled out the “lets sell ad space on … ” scheme to win this week.

  • schmannity

    But but if Trump loses the Alt-Right and Nazi base, his approval numbers will tank into the 20s or teens!

    • ArgieBargie

      They had some Trumpistas on NPR this moring. One of them said “Trump called for unity over the weekend. Obama NEVER called for unity!”

      My car stereo will need a new faceplate.

      • AnnieGetYerFun

        Thank goodness the NPR interviewer issued a follow-up question to that statem— hahahaha, I can’t even finish that sentence, I am sure they just let that idiocy stand.

        • sgt. jmk of the résistance

          No, for real, there was actually a comment along the lines of “for the record, Obama did call for unity” from the reporter. I’m just not sure whether he said it to the Trumper in question or just as part of his studio wrap-up.

          • AnnieGetYerFun

            Wow, that’s gutsy. They usually let that shit slide.

  • Meanie-meanie, tickle a person

    I hereby propose a new Internet Rule: The word “Nazi” must always be either preceded by “motherfucking”, or succeeded by “motherfucker(s)”.
    Or both.
    Vote early, vote often…

    • Raan

      What about other curses? This system is biased against “shitheels(s)”.

    • therblig

      i assume we’re sick and tired of them on this motherfucking plane as well?

        Motherfuckin’ A…

    • ViveLaResistance!

      Done and done!

  • goonemeritus

    Were we able to overlook Mr. Bannon’s hateful views, and only judge him by the quality of his work he would still be a massive liability. Post election this administration has been wrong footed on every single issue. One would be challenged to even point to something that could be thought of as a coherent strategy.

    • LesBontemps

      Chaos is the strategy.

      • goonemeritus

        If you are a helium molecule, maybe.

      • Raan

        I thought the strategy was:
        1) Win in 2016
        2) ???
        3) Profit!

  • Blackest Noobs

    Bannon sticks around cuz he’s a Nazi-wannabe and Trump is a Nazi-wannabe.

    And there is a political party, who has control of both Houses of Congress, that could stop this…nip it right at the bud…but they just admonish them with words and no actions.

    • therblig

      where’s blotto when you need them?

      I,I,I wanna be a nazi (heil, heil, heil, heil)
      I,I,I wanna join the reich!

  • jesterpunk

    If Bannon is fired will he spill all the beans to Mueller?

    • Blackest Noobs

      only if they have something criminal on Bannon.

      • jesterpunk

        Bannon is attacking Jared and McMaster because they are against him. He seems really petty just like Trump, so if Trump fires him he may want to get back at them.

        • Blackest Noobs

          sure..but there are other ways to get back at people…especially when you have an online “political” magazine at your disposal.

          • Raan

            Oh my God.

            His approval rating will rival that of Congress!

      • sgt. jmk of the résistance

        And only in such a way as to not impugn his beloved Nazis.

  • Iron Monkey

    you DO NOT call the president’s son-in-law a “cuck”

    Since it means that the president’s daughter likes to put it about.

    Boy, I’d feel like a $5 dollar whore right now if I were a Brietbartarian.

    • elviouslyqueer

      $5? What, have Breitbart’s rates gone up?

      • ArgieBargie

        They are trying to keep up with Bannon’s inflation rate.

  • MynameisBlarney

    It’s a start, then Gorka.

    • elviouslyqueer

      Fired, then expatriated to someplace nice. Like Syria.

      • ManchuCandidate

        Fired from a cannon… With votes.

      • Raan

        Or Mars.

      • MynameisBlarney

        Expatriated via Acme rocket.

    • Canis Greyhame

      Under any other administration, a lackey like Gorka would have been fired on the spot after going on TV to talk shit about the Secretary of State. Naturally he’s still there for now, because this is a rolling shit show of dysfunction.

      • sgt. jmk of the résistance

        Every day, I tweet pretty much the same question to him (to BOTH his twitter accounts), along the lines of “Hey “Dr” (LOL), other than polishing your own ego & lying on TV, what do you & your “PhD” (LOL) actually DO for the taxpayer $ you’re given?”

        He hasn’t answered yet.

  • elviouslyqueer

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. I don’t just want Bannon out of a job. I want his ass warming up a solitary confinement cell in the nearest penitentiary.

    • Raan

      Would you accept confinement in a padded room?

      • MynameisBlarney

        Nope.

        • Yellerduck

          Maybe if it was padded with poison ivy and cactus.

        • Bad Tom

          Because someone might pronounce him “cured.”

          • MynameisBlarney

            This^

  • Iron Monkey

    Bannon’s “Time” cover is a great way to grease the skids for him since Trump HATES it when people who work for him get that kind of pub.

  • ManchuCandidate

    If Bannon gets fired then he will be free to do what he does best and suck his own dick 24/7

    • jesterpunk

      They could just roll him out the door if he does that.

      • Raan

        You know how in fighting games an attack can be cancelled out by a stronger attack?

        You just did that with this comment.

      • MynameisBlarney

        Ouroboros.

      • Meanie-meanie, tickle a person

        Yeah, down the steps. Are there a lot of steps in the White House? I hope so. Maybe roll him down to the basement and back up. A couple times.

    • Duke

      Reminds me… The Mooch is on Colbert tonight. How topical might it be?

    • Raan

      He won’t have to work in autofellatio around his schedule!

    • Latverian Diplomat

      All that fellatio practice is probably the key to why “Bannon seems to have a sneaky way of manipulating himself back into Donald Trump’s good graces”

  • beatbort

    If Bannon stays, then Kelly goes. Then signs a six-figure book deal.

  • Jgb979

    Really the only way this happens is if someone does an all Bannon hour at Fox and Friends in the morning.

    You’re not going to win appeals to morality, or strong leadership, or the fact your chief strategist is a white supremacist.

  • BigCSouthside

    I don’t know if he’ll do it.

    Bannon might know too much, and has a media outlet and Mercer cash at his disposal. He’d be a hell of an enemy to make

    Bannon was picked BY THE MERCERS. I’d say he’s nearly invincible

  • geoffalnutt

    Gaddammit!!!! Trumb has been “threatening” to can Bannon since 1964, but never seems to really get around to it. Why? Because Bannon speaks his language, that’s why.

  • beatbort

    The more pressing question is: Is the House of Representatives FINALLY ready to impeach Donald Trump?

  • Baconzgood

    “.. whereas Jared Kushner leads the opposing faction, the one that isn’t full of AS MANY Nazis.”

    FIXED

  • Spotts1701, Nothingburger Chef

    Bannon knows too much – as long as he’s breathing and can communicate, he is more of a liability outside the family than inside it.

  • Latverian Diplomat

    This may fall into the category of too good to actually happen, but here’s hoping.

    I would love to see Bannon go, and then have the alt-right go full Dolchstoßlegende on the Trump administration, which has clearly been infilitrated by Jews, cucks, and Jewish cucks.

    Trumps support may hit a new low while America’s basket of deplorables tears itself apart.

    Again, here’s hoping.

    It’s weird to see Bannon described as having survived many ups and downs – we’re not even seven months into this goddamn administration, and the amount of drama could last for three seasons of a psycho reality show – The Real Housenazis of DC.

    The bad thing about palace intrigue stories in the age of Dump is that there is no consistency or logic operating behind the scenes. Instead of trying to assess the “tea leaves” to figure out what Dump will eventually do on any given issue, political reporters would have just as much luck assessing literal tea leaves.

      In a very sad way it mirrors the Cold War, when “Kremlinologists” would study photos of Soviet leaders standing on the podium watching the May Day Parade and try to determine who was in and who was on the way out.

        Along these lines…last night I saw the most amazing, wispy cloud formation, in the shape of a giant face with wild hair and an open screaming mouth. Two very small darker clouds were in the blank voids that would be eye sockets. I ran in to get my camera. In the one minute that took, the wind took the eyeball clouds away. I took a picture anyway, but it wasn’t the same face. If anything it was a little wilder and scarier. So I sat down outside with mr cc for a drink and a smoke and before my cigarette was finished the whole cloud formation was gone. Nothing. Just blue sky.

        I found this oddly reassuring. Trump can’t last. He will grow thinner and thinner on the wind until one day only the wind remains.

  • beatbort

    If he does fire Bannon, it will be like when the umpires ejected Earl Weaver and he’d just go in the tunnel behind the Orioles dugout and give orders to his assistant manager from there while smoking cigarettes.
    Bannon will be “fired” but continue to work, like Cheney, from “an undisclosed location”.

      You make that sound like it’s bad or something. Frankly, short of Maximum Cheeto’s resignation/arrest/removal under the 25th Amendment the best way to emasculate this administration even farther will be to have Bannon on the outside of the tent pissing in, letting us all in on Donny’s dirty little secrets.

      • Baconzgood

        Yeah but instead of being demonized in this country (which he should be) he’ll become a hero for justice and the American way in the history books.

        • Weird Fishes

          How do you figure?

        • Weird Fishes

          My fondest hope is that he has his moment and then skulks back into the noisome shadows from whence he came. There’s no place for him amd his followers in reasonable, rational discourse.

    • Beanz&Berryz

      True, but when has strategic thinking ever played a role in how Trump decides to do something?

      • Baconzgood

        Even Trump isn’t THAT stupid (God, for once I wish me saying that was right).
        No. He’s stuck with him. That egg has been scrambled. If he fires him he loses his base and his approval goes to 8%.

        • Old town Urbandale

          If I was Bannon, I’d be Googling, “What does polonium taste like?”

          • Bad Tom

            It is tasteless.

            Bannon better hide his search history really well, though. Google remembers what you look for. Hell, Google remembers what my husband looks for.

    • cmd resistor

      And he is best buds with the nasty Mercers.

    • Little Lulu Ω

      Bannon knows where ALL the pee tapes are buried though – he’s probably made a compilation DVD for Trump as a gentle reminder that it would make a nice indie film if Bannon’s tossed.

      Dude if you weren’t racist or supremacist, the second you saw swastikas or the ol’ fascist salute you should have hightailed it out of there at jackrabbit speed. You didn’t, so don’t cry when you get painted with the same brush as everyone else. You made your choices.

    I’ll believe it when I see it happen. Bannon has had Two Scoops ear for a while now, and as long as he can convince Two Scoops that he knows what’s going on and how to handle it, he’s safe. DJT knows he’s out of his depth and will cling to Bannon for the security of having someone around who claims to know what’s going on and how it all works. “I’ve helped you get this far, trust me to get you the rest of the way”

    Plus the whole having a bunch of frothing Nazis at his beck and call, a fairly large website and a boatload of outside cash from the Mercers will give even DJT some pause. Having his base turn on him vocally and in public will not be something his thin skin will handle well.

    Really? What’s the motive for him doing so?

    Key West Wing colleagues believe Bannon is an instigator of leaks targeting National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster…

    Sources close to Trump say he was irritated about Bannon’s extensive cooperation with a book by Bloomberg Businessweek’s Josh Green, “Devil’s Bargain,” with a cover that gave Bannon equal billing with Trump.

      So I tried to contact them. The chat (which I prefer) required I sign up first which I did not want to do. They didn’t provide a phone number but did have a thing where they’d call me, after I picked a category. None of the categories was “explain your bullshit email”. Eventually I found a phone number. I had to go through numerous menus and choices and FINALLY reached a human. (Comcast is a communications company and it is all but impossible to communicate with them.)

      So the explanation is: they had changed the circuit number used for my cable TV. That generated the email, which looked like they/I had been hacked, which cost me a half hour of my Saturday morning. Assholes.

            Had ol’ Raspy’s views prevailed, there might still be a Romanov on a throne instead of a Putin on a horse.

            I am absolutely not a Rasputin fan but Bannon does not come up to Rasputin’s ankle as a political thinker, though he outmatches him when it comes to dissolution.

    [American visitor in Germany gives a Nazi salute ….. aaaaaaaaaaand… immediately gets his fucking ass kicked!

    BERLIN (AP) — Police say a drunken American man was punched in the face by a passer-by as he gave the stiff-armed Nazi salute multiple times in downtown Dresden.
    Dresden police said Sunday the 41-year-old, whose name and hometown weren’t given for privacy reasons, suffered injuries in the 8:15 a.m. Saturday assault.
    Police say the American, who is under investigation for violating Germany’s laws against the display of Nazi symbols or slogans, had an extremely high blood alcohol level.
    From the WaPo:
    [The incident occurred about 8:15 a.m. Saturday as the man left a cafe called Europe in the Neustadt district of Dresden, police said in a statement .
    The tourist was identified only as a 41-year-old American man who was “severely drunk,” according to police. He suffered facial injuries, while the stranger who assailed him fled the scene, police said.
    Police said the U.S. national is under investigation for violating German laws prohibiting Nazi symbols and that they are still seeking the passer-by for causing personal injury, according to the Associated Press.]

          https://www.yahoo.com/tv/bill-maher-backs-canned-pundit-154356050.html

          Bill Maher, guesting this morning on CNN’s Fareed Zakaria GPS, defended the network’s recently ousted pundit Jeffrey Lord as a victim of political correctness.

          Lord, formerly CNN’s resident Trump supporter, was fired by the network last week after tweeting “Sieg Heil!” at a member of liberal watchdog group Media Matters for America.

          “I don’t know how long I’m going to last, really,” Maher told Zakaria, bemoaning what he sees as today’s political correctness. “It’s worse every year. The things that they go after people for now. Your colleague – I don’t agree with him – Jeffrey Lord, CNN got rid of him because he said sieg heil on a tweet. It was a joke.

          “This has got to stop, this idea that people have to go away if they’ve offended me even for one moment. How about just move on, turn the page, go to the next thing in your life?”

          Maher, who taped the interview with Zakaria Friday evening after Zakaria’s appearance on his own Real Time show, blamed millennials’ political correctness on “bad parenting,” a standard bug-a-boo for the HBO host.

    Hi All,

    I regularly commenter on Wonkette under another name. I always comment under a pseudonym, but I was compelled to address the events of this weekend with the clarity and conviction they warranted. I use my real name, which is the one you see above.

    Before I share this with my friends, I wanted to first share these thoughts with you as as community. I hope you will find them of value. If you have any critiques, those would be welcome too.

    Should Donald fire Bannon, it won’t be for Bannon being a white supremacist Nazi fuck, it will be because he leaked out of turn.

    • george lastrapes

      Bannon is the Power behind the Throne, seamlessly merged with the Toilet Monster.

  • CeeQ

    Trump won’t get rid of Bannon. They’re the same – white nationalists. Bannon influences him because Trump already believes in white supremacy. They’re both scum.

    Are you fucking kidding me?
    Who cares what he says? Even if he says ‘the right things,’ where does that rank on the goddamned Sincerity Scale of 1 – 100? __ a fucking -50?
    He had a single, simple golden opportunity not only to be ‘presidential’ but also to be ‘human and humane’ and he fucked it up completely and absolutely. To hell with anything he says now.

    • jesterpunk

      You know what he had multiple chances to say the right thing and didnt, he also walked away from the question about Nazis supporting him.

      • Red Bird

        He had multiple chances to reject the white supremacist supporters during his candidacy but didn’t. This is his cross to bear now.

        • jesterpunk

          He could have also not hired Nazis but he did that too. He also thinks the Nazi salute and Heil Hitler are a funny joke.

        • mardam422

          No, I broke it.

    • Bub, the cynical zombie

      The notion that somehow, if Trump suddenly says “the right thing,” he will “pivot” into being “presidential,” is beyond ludicrous. Everything he has ever said, done and worked for in his entire fucking life completely belies the absurd idea that he can ever be even REMOTELY “presidential.” One might as well conclude that a person who has been a practicing pedophile all their life is suddenly qualified to run a daycare because they donated a buck to a children’s charity.

    But Sanders and Cuomo did not let that pass.

      Would the family allow him to speak?

      • beingreleased

        A very good question. For a normal president, I think the family would allow him to speak even if they opposed him politically (W, for example, would be allowed). Trump, on the other hand…

    • Rags

      He can come by my place and I will taunt him a second time!

        That’s what I thought. It seemed to echo some of his more nationalistic and jingoistic rhetoric on the trail.

      • CogitoErgoBibo

        That’s what I was hearing. It started out anti-racism and veered into, “We’re all one people.” Sorry. Not going to allow that those were actually humans who invaded my city this weekend.

        • amrak63

          I suspect that it’s not stupidity, but fear of offending his base.

          His strategy in the election campaign was always “play to the base”. He (or his handlers) was always after intensity of supporters over numbers of supporters.

  • Bill D. Burger

    Across the alt-right and Bagger WooWoo sites (you know em’) they’re now saying that Trump’s little prepared condemnation remarks today were OK with them: “We know he had to say that.” “We heard him loud and clear on Saturday.” “He understands us and we support him.” “He is our president and now we can move forward.” “Our values are going to save this country. He agrees with us.”___ blah, blah, blah.
    They were obviously prepared for the from tepid to lukewarm response from the base and morally bankrupt Hypocrite in the WH. And his words mean less than NOTHING today.

    • Red Bird

      Basically, they feel empowered.

    • cmd resistor

    • Mehmeisterjr

      By “sounded Presidential,” I believe he meant “sounded like his speech was dictated by President Putin.”

    Totally stage managed white wash of his failure to lead. Bring him back to DC for a few hours. Have the FBI show up at the WH to tell him the FBI and state officials are investigating. Then he can go on TV and makes it seem like he is making a statement because he has new information about what happened and an investigation. Best he could do. Weak, sad.

    http://www.masslive.com/news/index.ssf/2017/08/springfield_police_officer_mocks_charlottesville_victims.html

    A Springfield police officer has mocked the anti-racism demonstrators who were run down during a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday, applauding the fatal crash in a Facebook post.

    “Hahahaha love this, maybe people shouldn’t block roads,” wrote Conrad Lariviere in a comment on a news article about the crash.

    • Skwerl the Nazi Puncher

      Fire that man.

          Yes, make sure no one hires him in any position of authority ever again. He shouldn’t even be a store security guard.

          • Mehmeisterjr

            There’s an opening for somebody at a hot dog restaurant but they don’t employ his ilk.

      • jesterpunk

        They are investigating him now and the mayor is pretty pissed at him.

        Earlier on Sunday, Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno released a statement condemning the violence in Charlottesville.

        “My thoughts and prayers go out to all those families that suffered a terrible loss of life and were injured. These actions by white supremacists – the ‘new KKK’ groups – should be denounced by all,” he said. “Don’t be fooled by their propaganda, once again, they spew hate and enjoy violence. In the end, they will not prevail and good will overcome evil.”

        Shortly after 9 p.m., Sarno released a statement condemning Lariviere’s comments.

        “I just got done issuing a statement this morning on how upsetting the tragic incidents were in Charlottesville, Virginia and one of our own officers does this? Unbelievable! There is no place for this in our society, let alone from a Springfield Police Officer,” Sarno said. “I stand by and commend Commissioner John Barbieri’s steps for a thorough internal investigation and review by our Community Police Hearing Board to pursue the appropriate discipline against said officer.”

          I imagine that this racist officer will be back on the force (with back pay) within a month. That’s usually how these internal investigations of police officers work out.

    • Poorly Behaved Pérsistanista

      Dear Nazi fuck,

      In addition to being a stain on humanity, you are unaware of the circumstances.
      1) Initially the murderer rammed cars in front of him, the people seeming to be incidental.
      2) He was crossing the pedestrian mall, which has two places for cars to cross and the signage CLEARLY STATES that cars yield to pedestrians, due to the whole pedestrian mall thing.
      3) Those crossovers are newish, one more newish than the other and are controversial, again due to the whole pedestrian mall thing.
      4) Maybe Cville will readdress the wisdom of the drive acrosses.
      5) Fuck you. I hope you lose your job.

    • Suttree

      “I am not a racist” “I’m a good man” No you aren’t you fucking racist shitbag. Fuck you I hope you lose your job. Fuckface

      • jesterpunk

        The mayor is pretty pissed, that guy will be fired soon for that comment.Hopefully they fire him in a way that he can never be a police officer or even a security guard ever again.

    • YoBunnyBunny

      You know, I wish that there were a standard for banning assholes like this for serving in any public function–especially as officers of the peace. Hell, I wouldn’t want this motherfucker collecting my garbage.

      Real talk: It’s very fucking disturbing how many police officers think like him. They’re all about “law” and “order” until it’s someone they don’t like or agree with and then random anybodies murdering people is totes okey-doke.

      • Cat Cafe for the Prosecution

        “Law” and “order” is just a racist code word to them. Always has been.

    A big part of this is the open hostility between Bannon and McMaster- BAnnon is unleashing his flying monkeys to smear McMaster and most of the senior staff are pissed about it. The latest is that McMaster is an alcoholic, a charge that is liable to backfire on Bannon.

    • Major_Major_Major

      “Pot, meet kettle”, is that what you are intimating? Unpossible

  • Major_Major_Major

    I can honestly say, that after today’s statement I have never been prouder to have Trump as president. Then again, I have also never been more embarrassed to have him as president. All in all, it is a net go fuck yourself, Donny.

  • Jackie Jones

    Tough Call. Bannon stays because he MADE Trump President. But if Bannon stays, Trump will never get re-elected. Bannon kicked out, Trump shows spine but his Chan Mob might have a tantrum and he won’t get re-elected. If he were smart, he’d dump Bannon and let go of the crazies. But he hates disappointing his fans. I’m gonna go with Bannon stays as Trump is afraid of him and his band of gamers calling him names. Plus Bannon probably promised him he’d make him Fuhrer.

    • george lastrapes

      I repeat: Steve Bannon is the Power behind the Throne, AND the Toilet Monster, all rolled into one.

    • Bill Diaz

      Bannon stays because he is the holder of the Mercer Money Nozzle that funds so much of the alt-right and their communication networks. I wouldnt be surprised if Mercer wasnt also funding ‘Anti-fa’ assholes as well.

      I was there at the Woman’s Day march here in Vermont. Almost 15% of the state showed up, even shutting down the highway to the state capitol and there wasnt a single fight or injury. I got to see a princess themed birthday held at a restaurant owned by a naturalized American couple.

      No chants, no mobs, no torches, just hippies in pussy hats. Bannon is Trump’s Ernst Rohm and his link to the Brownshirt he needs to intimidate his enemies. Nothing more and nothing less.

      Have a great day!

    Attention, conspiratologists! Bannon is a Rosacean, a member of the Mystic Knights of the Gin Blossom, also called the Order of Rosacea. They are behind all manner of devilment, from the Illuminati and the Masons to the New World Order, the Neo-Cons, and the Alt-Right.

But now my wife doesn’t mind because I’m not screaming “Eat shit, you facing moron,” multiple times each day.

  • Here is one to really fuck with Trumps’ head:
    If Bannon is the leaker, who leaked your secret meetings with Kelly naming him thus?

    • Blackest Noobs

      i still say the leaker is John Barron.
      and what if Donald J. Trump is suffering from the same malady as the guy who also called himself Tyler Durden in that Fight Club movie that practically no young white guy actually got…you know…cuz they started fight clubs and their loss was irony.

      • BJW

        Maybe there’s a good Trump and a bad Trump? No, unpossible. Maybe a bad Trump and a worse Trump, though.

        • Blackest Noobs

          • BJW

            Or worser and worsest? What is so bad that can’t get the worsester?

      • Wookie Monster

        Odds are good that there’s more than one leaker in Trumpville. This administration has more palace intrigue than “I, Claudius.”

        My money is that at least some of the leaks are coming from Mike Pence’s camp to undermine Trump and put Mike in the big boy chair.

        • merl1

          I’ve thought that all along. I imagine Pence started planning the day he and trump were inaugerated.

  • Lorindel Ó Loingsigh

    Yeah, well he has his own copy of the pee-pee tape ready to deploy should it come to that.

  • Begin Anew Day

    Look. IF the recent news is true then Bannon has had a lot of practice at sucking cock – his own cock that is.

    Let’s face it, this gives him experience and skills that most other people can NEVER achieve. He must suck his own cock at least two or three dozen times a day! Maybe more!

    WHY WOULD DONNIE EVER FIRE HIM? None of his wives have that much skill. Putin probably does not have that much skill.

    Bannon isn’t going anywhere for a long, long time.
