Steve Bannon is Gone

The President has fired top policy adviser Steve Bannon, who was popular with the right-wing Trump base.

The soft military coup continues.

UPDATE

From the New York Times:
President Trump has told senior aides that he has decided to remove Stephen K. Bannon, the embattled White House chief strategist who helped Mr. Trump win the 2016 election, according to two administration officials briefed on the discussion.
The president and senior White House officials were debating when and how to dismiss Mr. Bannon. The two administration officials cautioned that Mr. Trump is known to be averse to confrontation within his inner circle, and could decide to keep on Mr. Bannon for some time.
As of Friday morning, the two men were still discussing Mr. Bannon’s future, the officials said. A person close to Mr. Bannon insisted the parting of ways was his idea, and that he had submitted his resignation to the president on Aug. 7, to be announced at the start of this week, but it was delayed in the wake of the racial unrest in Charlottesville, Va.

  1. Tough to take any sides with this bunch, but it's a relief knowing that this guy will no longer be whispering his economic idiocy into Trumps ear.

    Hopefully Ross and Navarro aren't far behind.
