  • I think as part of the "reboot" this place's name should be changed to "Talk and Talk and Talk and Talk More or Less Rationally".

the fuck is even happening here


He fell from Trump Tower and the media is rushing to get one last interview before he hits the ground.

The good news: The white supremacist crowd size is overestimated because there are also Three Percenters and the like in the mix...


The bad news: Three Percenters side with nazis because they're afraid Antifa will impose universal health care on them.

He lost a single evangelical. CEOs of large corporations evidently do much better on this moral test.

Ann Coulter blames the media

The serious posters in the comment section under Breitbart's story "White House: John Kelly, Steve Bannon Agree Today Is Bannon's Last Day" seem to blame Trump at this stage.

Bannon is gone.
Feels like the first good news in a while.

Don't be too quick to see it that way. Trump may have used the shock troops of Breitbart to get himself into power, but now he's there he's been moving closer and closer to a military power base. That's not a good thing.
True, though that feels like a worry on a different level. On a cruder level, I'm just counting the number of known alt-nazis and the like (Bannon, Gorka, Miller, Sessions).

gotta wonder now whether bannon will turn on Trump, or whether this will help Breitbart run interference for Trump without the complexities of Bannon being an official government employee.
As much as I want to see Trump's support just collapse, I wouldn't be surprised if Trump basically coming out as a Nazi (to the delight of David Duke & co) has given him enough of a buffer to survive this.

On another note, maybe Kellyanne Conway is next on the chopping block, if Trump has decided he's no longer indebted to the Mercer family.

I missed that at the time. https://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/01/world/europe/wikileaks-julian-assange-russia.html

Yeah, consistent with Wikileaks being pro-Kremlin. The new revelation, though, that they turned down Russian government leaks is just... I dunno, completely damning.

Wow, I expected them to be indirectly useful idiots, but not to be directly pro-Kremlin.

Corrected: ISIS sends message via their own news agency (Amaq), claming responsibility.

Turns out there's only one side and no need to await further facts in this case:

More buzz about Bannon not being a valued colleague:

Or Obama wearing a tan suit.

Probably the best Trump could have done to limit the damage, rather than having it a steady flow of resignations. Nazi support + dissolved council is negligibly worse than Nazi support alone.

He did say, however, that there were lots of candidates to replace each one that resigned, but he isn't bound by consistency.

Unambiguous criticism gets airtime on Fox News.

Apparently David Duke reacted poorly to yesterday's statement. Maybe that's why Trump had a new "both sides" take today.
