Things just got worse for Steve Bannon.
“I’m proud of what the Breitbart team has accomplished in so short a period of time in building out a world-class news platform.”
“Bannonism just gave a thin veneer of ersatz nationalism to what was otherwise the Donald’s own dogs’ breakfast of protectionism, nativism, xenophobia, jingoism and strong-man bombast.”
Gee Steve, what happened to having your “hands on your guns?” What happened to “loving a good gunfight”?
So that’s what Trump could have gotten from Bannon. But being the “stable genius” that he is, he decided to rechristen his former friend “Sloppy Steve” because you know, that’s what someone who is “like, very smart” would do.
It’s probably safe to say that whatever was left of Donald Trump’s sanity has flown the coop over the past 24 hours.
Well damn. Earlier today, The Guardian ran a story containing a preview of what’s being billed as an “explosive new book” about the Trump White House. The book, by Michael Wolff, is described as follows: Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, is reportedly based on more than 200 interviews with the president, his…
“If I could ask him one question, it would be, why aren’t you president?'”
We fully expect Steve to embrace this opportunity to come clean. Hell, he might even shave for the occasion.
Well in the latest evidence to suggest that the public is turning against the GOP, a new NBC/WSJ poll shows that…
“Mr. Bannon backed Mr. Moore in the primary, though the judge had been removed twice from the state Supreme Court for refusing to follow a legitimate court order. Mr. Moore was a political self-implosion guaranteed to happen.”
“”Stephen K. Bannon and his alt-right movement have helped accomplish something no one in a quarter-century has been able to do: get a Democrat elected in the state of Alabama.”
This is a truly devastating setback not only for Donald Trump, but for Steve Bannon, who effectively bet the house on Moore.
It was karaoke night at a Fairhope, Alabama dive bar on Tuesday, which presumably explains why a bleary-eyed, disheveled homeless man was allowed to get up on stage and ramble about establishment conspiracy theories.
What Bannon does now may well determine whether he retains his influence going forward.
