Trump says he was fired. Bannon says he left. I'm going with Bannon.

Is Bannon going to take the fall for the President's latest self-inflicted crisis? If he is, in the words of Monty Python "You're not fooling anyone"

Is there anyone Trump can keep for more than 6 months, laughs? Not that I don't welcome this, but he has some serious issues with people around him, and deep down, the issue lies more in his faults than theirs. Though Bannon is a bad egg.

I predict we will continue to see people leave him in droves, just because of his inherent nature. And let's face it, Trump will torpedo anyone he does not need for the moment, that is not elevating him in his own eyes.

I wonder how long the others on the list who need to be gone last. Sessions technically has to be there until Mueller is done.

Saw a tweet with Bannon claiming he left two weeks ago. So, sounds like he was trying to distance himself from this mess as well.

GOP source to me just now re Bannon: "Don't believe the spin that he resigned two weeks ago."

Given the interview he gave that was published a few days ago it makes complete sense.

So, does Bannon go back to Breitbart? There or elsewhere, does he support or undermine Trump?

Sessions isn't "a White House aide." I suspect it would be Stephen Miller - he's ideologically so close to Bannon that I can't see keeping him on while letting Bannon go. And he's such a disaster from a PR perspective that I have to think Kelly wants him out.

Yea Bannon. No one is more "Democrat" that Trump.

I'm not even sure who is more delusional, him or Trump?

The Republicans have found a lot of success via lies and disinformation in the past, so why would anyone expect that to stop now? Trump is 100% a result of the behavior of Republicans and right wing media, they created an environment that was perfect for a know nothing blowhard to find success. I expect to see more of the same from the Republicans until it stops working.
