Steve “Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan” Bannon will be vacating his position as White House chief strategist shortly, according to The New York Times. The “hows” and “whys” of Bannon’s departure are unclear at the moment, with the NYT reporting that President Trump informed senior aides that he intends to fire Bannon. Meanwhile, a source close to Bannon says that he submitted his resignation on August 7, only to have its announcement interrupted by the racist violence in Charlottesville last weekend. Perhaps that’s what Trump meant when he said, “we’ll see what happens with Mr. Bannon,” at his disastrous press conference on Tuesday?
Anyway, point is, Bannon’s leaving the White House to spend more time filling hot tubs with acid, writing hip-hop musicals, calling reporters and ranting on the record, and, of course, trying to suck his own cock. But while Bannon was an especially insidious influence on Trump, there are unfortunately many more white supremacist snakes in that particular patch of flaming grass.
