Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, January 09, 2018

Stephen K. Bannon is stepping down from his post as executive chairman of Breitbart News, the company announced Tuesday. Bannon's departure, which was forced by a onetime financial patron, Rebekah Mercer, comes as Bannon remained unable to quell the furor over remarks attributed to him in a new book in which he questions President Trump's mental fitness and disparages his elder son, Donald Trump Jr. ... No one has been more closely identified with the Breitbart website or had more to do with emboldening its defiant editorial spirit than Bannon did after its namesake, Andrew Breitbart, died of a heart attack in 2012. In Washington, Bannon works and lives part time in a townhouse nicknamed the Breitbart Embassy.

And to think, just a year ago some around here were calling him 'President Bannon'.

That's only because that is what MediaHuffWashTalkingDailyNYTMattersPoPoPointsKosMemo told them to say.

I do hope if the impossible happens and Trump isn't removed from office before the next POTUS election that Bannon runs against him.

Or thats because he was running White House policy before the power struggle with Kushner and the falling out with Trump...

I like your Alternative Fact though. It's cute.

I believe he was referred to as many things such as the "Grim Reaper". How you managed get "President Bannon" out of that is beyond me Comrade.

But, nice going. You reap what you sow.

Here's your ruble.

I think the President Bannon thing stemmed from his courting of the alt-right. It's not an unfair depiction IMO.

And to think, just a year ago he was a chief policy architect and close confidant of Crazy Donald Trump. Two peas in a pod.

I'd be surprised if we've seen the last of Sloppy Steve. He'll make his way to something even more nefarious.

That might actually explain his bad complexion.

I think he's called Sloppy Steve because he looks like a slob. He looks like an alcoholic who could easily audition for a zombie role on a prominent TV show with no makeup assistance whatsoever.

That and donald doesn't have much imagination or vocabulary.

For as crude and simplistic as it is, I think it's apt for Bannon, Redial. Plus he utilized alliteration.

Think he knows that? :-)

I like Colbert's line about Bannon- what your syphilis looks like when it gets herpes.

Me, too. He still has a people base but his financial backers have turned against him. Instead of the Creme de la Creme of the political wealthy, he's now the Creme de la Crumb.

People like Bannon never go quietly into the night. They just reinvent themselves. His arrogance won't let him give up so easily.

I'm reminded of a saying. "Old politicians never die. They just smell that way."
