“This seems perfect for Breitbart to flood the zone with candidates of all stripe who will report back to you / Milo with INTEL about the job application process over at FB.”
“It’s a combination of stunning calculation and deep irony,” said Frank Sesno, director of the George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs, speaking of Bannon’s appearance on “60 Minutes.”
“I’d be ashamed ten years from now if those weaselly little putzes, whose voices are getting a lot higher every week as this presidency starts to look worse and worse weren’t still [after me].”
“I’m talking – obviously, about Gary Cohn and some other people. That if you don’t like what he’s doing and you don’t agree with it, you have an obligation to resign.”
“… when Kelly is not around.”
“The other faction wasn’t racist, but they were Wall Streeters.”
In a piece that carries the InfoWars-ish title “Paul Ryan Throws In With The Leftists To Attack President Trump’s Pardon”, Steve Bannon’s propaganda machine writes the following…
“The White House and the country are better off with Mr. Bannon back at that website.”
Well, it took Steve Bannon, what? About four days to prove that he will not in fact be “going to war for Donald Trump” (as he told Bloomberg) but rather against the President, with the latter stance being entirely consistent with what his acolytes at Breitbart proclaimed on Twitter following Steve’s exit from the administration late…
“And what exactly is he going to attack in the White House? The thin veneer of sanity that Chief of Staff John F. Kelly attempted to create by doing the managing equivalent of stapling Trump under the wallpaper and pretending not to see the lump?”
Bannon can talk about “going to war” for Trump against Congress and the “globalist” elements in the White House all he wants, but the bottom line is that Steve already went to war – and he lost.
Today was Bannon’s last day in the Trump administration and on Friday evening we learn that it was also his first day back at the old barnyard.
“We are grateful for his service and wish him the best.”
Let’s all pray Steve keeps his shirt on…
And oh the irony. Steve will now be the sacrificial lamb that allows Trump to avoid criticizing the very people Bannon represents.
