Trump Dumps Bannon, Finally
The writing was on the wall and in this blog that Alt-Rightist Steve Bannon was a huge anchor around President Donald Trump’s leg. And as Trump was quickly sinking lower into highly negative seas this week, it was most likely John Kelly who cut that anchor from the great Orange Leader, hoping he would surface in calmer waters.
The number of dead bodies floating outside the Oval Office is astounding. The poorly vetted National Security advisor, Michael Flynn, lied to the VP and was out a little over twenty-days into the Trump administration. Anthony Scaramucci was brought in to shake things up and Sean Spicer immediately resigned on July 2, 2017. John Kelly was transferred from Homeland Security to Chief of Staff, and Reince Priebus was sacked on July 28, 2017. And now, Steve Bannon was fired by the president on August 18, 2017. No previous administration has had so much turnover in such a short time, and this speaks to the Donald’s abysmally poor judgement and a broken vetting system.
There are some who think that the departure of Stephen K. Bannon will change the direction of the White House and help Donald J. Trump pivot. Ha! After watching the cable news networks over the weekend, I have learned how much those talking heads don’t know:
CNN: Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, BREAKING NEWS, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah.
Fox News: Blah, Blah, OUR PRESIDENT, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah,
MSNBC: Blah, Blah, Blah, IMPEACHMENT, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah,
As long as Donald Trump is the President of the United States nothing is going to change. Through his own words, Trump has clearly shown us that he is a not only a horrid communicator but also a racist. The goal of people who care about the real America hasn’t changed but, hopefully, Trump will do something which will bother Bannon. Then the right-wingers at Breitbart will start to nag him and create backlash in the Alt-Right faction of Trump’s base. This will help America. If anyone thinks that just because Steve Bannon has left the building Trump will magically become reasonable and focused on the people’s business, they are wrong.
The fact is that Bannon never left Breitbart and he was pulling the strings of that website just as deftly as he was pulling the strings of our puppet president. Now is the time for everyone to look up the addresses of their representatives in the House and the Senate (they’re listed on this website) and write your representative a strong letter of rebuke.
Congress doesn’t need to censure President Donald Trump, they must impeach him. Censure is nothing more than a formal, symbolic condemnation of an individual whose actions run counter to the group’s acceptable standards for individual behavior. We’ve already reached that point. More action is needed!
It’s time for YOU to communicate your views and feelings to those who run our Congress. Removal from office is the singularly decisive protection from an extremely bad president. Never stop acting and never stop believing.
