White House’s chief strategist Steve Bannon is getting the heave ho. Cheeto Trump blabbed to his higher up that he’s cutting Bannon off, so of course it leaked to the press. 

Reports the New York Times:

President Trump has told senior aides that he has decided to remove Stephen K. Bannon, the embattled White House chief strategist who helped Mr. Trump win the 2016 election, according to two administration officials briefed on the discussion.

The president and senior White House officials were debating when and how to dismiss Mr. Bannon. The two administration officials cautioned that Mr. Trump is known to be averse to confrontation within his inner circle, and could decide to keep on Mr. Bannon for some time.

As of Friday morning, the two men were still discussing Mr. Bannon’s future, the officials said. A person close to Mr. Bannon insisted the parting of ways was his idea, and that he had submitted his resignation to the president on Aug. 7, to be announced at the start of this week, but the move was delayed after the racial unrest in Charlottesville, Va.

Mr. Bannon had clashed for months with other senior West Wing advisers and members of the president’s family.

Early word is that Bannon will be going right back to Breitbart. So expect all types of Trump slander out of that right wing and alt-right bastion.

Don’t let the door knob hit ya where the good Lord split ya. Peep some choice Twitter reactions below and on the flip.
