Unless you’ve been hiking somewhere in the mountains or on a cross-desert trek, you’ve heard by now of the ouster of Steve Bannon yesterday from his post as Senior Advisor to President Trump.
And quicker than Trump can hit send on his Twitter app, Bannon announced he’s going back to Breitbart.
But not without retaliatory fire at the generals now running the show at the White House.
Effusing to editors at the Wall Street Journal, Bannon quipped, “The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over.”
He went on to warn that the administration will become something else entirely; what exactly we don’t yet know.
But for something to be over it must first have officially begun.
The real problem for Trump — at least in the eyes of his enemies in the fourth estate — is that he never really got started in the first place.
And enquiring minds will want to know what exactly the 2020 Trump will be, now that his inspiration for the ‘populist-nationalist’ flavor is gone.
Here’s more from Redstate…
Steve Bannon is out of the White House and he’s obviously not all that happy about it. Shortly after his resignation was announced, Bannon acolyte and Breitbart editor-at-large Joel Pollock had this to say–and received a lot of help from the internet:
Just a short while ago we learned Bannon was returning to Breitbart and he shared his thoughts about what it all meant with The Weekly Standard:
With the departure from the White House of strategist Stephen K. Bannon, who helped shape the so-called nationalist-populist program embraced by Donald Trump in his unlikely path to election, a new phase of the Trump presidency begins. Given Trump’s nature, what comes next will hardly be conventional, but it may well be less willfully disruptive—which, to Bannon, had been the point of winning the White House.
“The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over,” Bannon said Friday, shortly after confirming his departure. “We still have a huge movement, and we will make something of this Trump presidency. But that presidency is over. It’ll be something else. And there’ll be all kinds of fights, and there’ll be good days and bad days, but that presidency is over.”
