Steve Bannon Eclipse

Steve Bannon is back at his old job as executive chairman of Breitbart News.

Bannon Eclipse

Here’s a timeline of the Bannon eclipse. The last straw may have been his claim in the American Prospect that there’s no military solution to North Korea. Just as Trump was explaining to Kim that he’s locked and loaded for fire and fury.

 

 

Trump Speaks Kim Jong Un’s Language

Give President Trump credit. He speaks Kim Jong Un’s language. Trump promises Kim Fire and Fury. Kim says Trump is “a lump he can beat to a jelly.”

The Mooch Had A Very Bad Week

Anthony Scaramucci (a.k.a. The Mooch) had a very bad week. A short one too.

President Trump appointed him communications director over the objections of Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, and Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

Mooch’s Very Bad Week

Spicer got mad and quit, sort of. Mooch fired Priebus. His wife divorced him. Harvard Law School listed him as dead. He called Priebus a f-ing paranoid schizophrenic in a New Yorker interview. And then new White House chief of staff,  stand up straight shooter Marine Gen. John Kelly, fired him.

Kind of like Jack Ruby whacking Lee Harvey Oswald.

Oh, and his ex-wife gave birth.

It was a week with the makings of a country song.

Jeff Sessions Goes To Bat Against Gang Violence

Trump snubbed Jeff Sessions in a speech about  MS-13 gang violence last week. Sessions was in El Salvador to actually do something about it.

Carrier Pigeon 2.0

In the old days battlefield communications occurred via carrier pigeon. In a postmodern update, Trump tweeted transgenders out of the military.

Carrier Pigeon 2.0

Defense secretary Mattis was “appalled” that the president tweeted his way around his own command structure.

McCain called it, “yet another example of why major policy announcements should not be made via Twitter.”

The military is awaiting “further guidance” before enforcing the policy.
