Bannon's Out

Steve Bannon is officially out as White House Chief Strategist. Depending on the source, he was fired or he resigned. Not that it really matters, since this entire thing is a fucking farce.

One of the problems with the "President Bannon" narrative is that it created an outsized expectation that things will change in the White House if only Bannon were gone.

The problem is that Bannon can wield an entirely different kind of influence from outside the White House.

The other problem is that there are still a lot of extremely dangerous and dreadfully vile people left inside the White House. Including and especially the actual president.
