[Editor’s note: Getting rid of Israeli stooge Bannon is a sticking plaster on the gaping wound inflicted on the Trump administration by the bloviating buffoon’s chronic mishandling of the Charlottesville fiasco.
Trump handled the whole thing so badly he left himself wide open to accusations that he is a white supremacist and racist, accusations that are probably not far from the truth considering his anti-Muslim, anti-Mexican, anti-Black campaign rhetoric.
So now, with large numbers of people including many in the media and politics calling for the orange idiot-in-charge to resign before he can further embarrass his country and create even more racial and social unrest, Bannon has been jettisoned in a feeble and pathetic attempt to try to salvage Trump’s presidency before it is utterly sunk by the racism crisis.
With a whole host of Trump advisors and staffers having either resigned or been fired, one now has to question just who is advising the pussy grabber? Jared Kushner and Ivanka most likely, with General McMaster possibly also having Trump’s ear.
Considering how incompetent, ill-informed, childish, narcissistic and downright dumb Trump really is, coupled with his complete lack of experience in leadership or politics of any kind, we are now in a very scary scenario where the worst possible person is in charge and there is no-one with experience and ability to rein him in and guide him away from further botches.
Or perhaps we should be glad that Trump is now bereft of support and has become a toxic pariah, as he will no doubt blunder from one deeply embarrassing fiasco to the next and that will make it easier for him to be removed from office.
Only the most stupid and blinkered of Trump supporters are failing to see that the moron’s presidency has deeply damaged their country. He has managed to drag US-Russian and US-China relations to an all-time low, amplify the already widespread and strong hatred of the US around the globe, annoy Germany and the rest of Europe to the point where we may well abandon our alliance with the US and NATO, infuriate the Latino & Muslim worlds and achieve absolutely nothing of any value whatsoever, to say nothing of his ludicrously childish baiting of North Korea.
I am still assailed from time to time by Trump supporters – yes, there are still some morons dumb enough to still support this human-shaped piece of fecal matter, but less and less as time goes by as slowly, the morons are realising just how stupid they were to have been fooled into voting for this scumbag.
Well, it’s too little, too late and I think I speak for the vast majority of the world outside the US when I say that we would all like Trump to hurry up and get the hell out of the White House.
It is going to take a very long time and a lot of very good PR work for the rest of the world to look at the US in a favourable light again, if it is even possible. You have Donald Trump to thank for this, and at the risk of sounding like I am engaging in schadenfreude – I told you a long time ago this was going to happen, that Trump was going to lead you into a quagmire.
Congratulations, you have now become the most reviled and despised nation on Earth and I strongly urge you to take a long, hard look at your nation and realise that it is rotten to the core and long overdue a root and branch reform. Ian]
White House: Stephen Bannon is out as chief strategist
Stephen Bannon is leaving his position as White House chief strategist.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that Friday was Bannon’s last day in the role.
“White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Steve Bannon have mutually agreed today would be Steve’s last day,” Sanders said. “We are grateful for his service and wish him the best.”
The statement came shortly after The New York Times reported that President Donald Trump had decided to remove Bannon. Two administration officials told the Times on Friday about Trump’s decision.
A source close to Bannon told the Times that the decision was his idea and that he had submitted his resignation to Trump over a week ago. The source claimed that the unrest in Charlottesville, Virginia, delayed the process.
Bannon’s position in the administration has been intensely scrutinized over the past week. At a news conference, Trump was ambivalent about Bannon’s status, saying “We’ll see” about his future in his strategist role.
On Thursday, the liberal American Prospect magazine published an interview with Bannon in which he mocked members of the administration and criticized Trump’s posturing with North Korea.
Bannon has also feuded for months with other members of the Trump administration, including senior adviser Jared Kushner and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster.
Bannon, the former head of the right-wing site Breitbart News, has been under fire since he began working for the Trump campaign last year. He has been criticized for calling Breitbart a platform for the “alt-right,” a far-right and white nationalist movement that includes anti-Semitic figures and followers.
Bannon has denied he is anti-Semitic, and supporters point out that Breitbart is pro-Israel. This week he welcomed the president’s divisive comments on a far-right rally in Charlottesville, saying that as long as Democrats are focused on race and identity, the Republican Party will crush them in the polls.
