Pretty much sums up the modern left: He calls out their bias, hypocrisy and double standards, they have a hissy fit and call him a racist.

With Bannon gone , you should apply for his job :-)

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Rumours that George Sifakis, director of the Office of Public Liaison, is leaving the White House, according to multiple administration sources.

Sifakis is a close ally and personal friend of former chief of staff Reince Priebus.

Trump must be feeling very disillusioned and disappointed that the Russian bots are not liking his tweets

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Seven charity groups have cancelled their plans to host fundraising events at President Trump's luxury Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Fla., over the president's response to the violence at a white supremacist rally over the weekend in Charlottesville, Va.

Not sure this is the best approach but I suppose people want to make their point in some way?

He can't get rid of #3 so I guess all that leaves is himself to remove from the picture?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Billionaire investor Carl Icahn has ended his role as a special regulatory adviser to President Donald Trump.

Source

Rumours circulating that Bannon will now go to war against Trump and globalists using the Breitbart platform backed by the billionaire Mercer family who are currently Trump donors!

Seems likely as there are currently no signs of people queuing up to offer Bannon a job despite the fact that he has just left one of the most powerful jobs in America.
Of course it is early days and it all might turn out completely differently?

Reminds me of the US proverb that it is better to have people in the tent pi##ing out than outside the tent pi##ing in

US stock markets have been sliding down as investors lose confidence in Trump's ability to deliver his agenda, S&P 500 and Dow down ca. 2% since your post .
S&P closed today at a 6 week low, I am sure it is just temporary and will soon rise again #MAGA

I think it is the best approach - only language Mr. Trump actually understands.

Can a vice president in the US quit his/her job?
If so, what happens? Who votes a new one in?

This one wouldn't would he. He might be speculating on taking over soon? Chance of a lifetime.

Gerald Ford became the first vice president chosen under the 25th Amendment after Vice President Spiro T. Agnew resigned.

The Twenty-fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution deals with succession to the Presidency and establishes procedures both for filling a vacancy in the office of the Vice President as well as responding to Presidential disabilities.
The President nominates a successor who becomes Vice President if confirmed by a majority vote of both Houses of the Congress.

I'm getting pretty tired/bored of SNL. You could say they've played a part in normalising his obscene behaviour with cute caricatures, and by coming across as smug and liberal they go on to piss off conservatives, further polarising the country.

Trump is beyond parody. There is nothing funny any more about an unhinged man with the nuclear codes.

Steve Bannon returned to Breitbart News as executive chairman on Friday following his ouster from the White House, the far-right website announced in a press release.

And now the party begins
Just having a few vodkas to celebrate the departure of Bannon, so apologies for any typos.

My prediction for the next few weeks is that we're going to see an all out media war which will divide the right. Not sure if it was picked up in this thread earlier in the week, but the great chameleon, puppet master in chief, and all round global bullshit artist who's had more nationalities than I've had vodkas, was behind the downfall of Bannon.

Mr Murdoch and his wife Kathryn, a big critic of the US president, have pledged $1m to the Anti-Defamation League and in a email encouraged friends and colleagues “to give what you think is right”.
