Steve Bannon Exits White House, Re-Enters Netherworld

After calling him “a good man” and “a friend,” President Trump booted Chief Strategist Steve Bannon out of the White House. Not personally; Mr. Trump doesn’t like to get his little hands dirty, so he had hatchet-man John Kelly give Bannon the axe. The Trump Administration isn’t out of trolls, though, since Sebastian Gorka and Stephen Miller still infest the corridors of power [Update: Gorka is out].

Minutes after his paws hit the Pennsylvania Avenue pavement, Mr. Bannon scuttled into the depths of Breitbart News, his old lair, to ready his revenge. Breitbart is now attacking Ivanka, Jared Kushner, H.R. McMaster, and Trump’s new flip-flopped Afghanistan policy. This is what it means to be outside the White House, pissing in.
