    True, but it's what we've got. Might as well make lemonade out of the lemon since Republicans won't let us take him back to the car lot.

    Re: Trump says Steve Bannon has 'lost his mind'

    One of my biggest gripes and statements about Obama in the run up to 08 was essentially the notion of "who you keep around you" because it relates to the idea of judgement. It goes similarly with Trump. Bannon didn't suddenly change the kind of person he was, and he most certainly didn't "go insane". The interests of him and the interests of Trump simply verged apart at some point, and thus the two men...acting no different than they always have...went from close confidants to mudslinging enemies.

    It's not about whether you believe Bannon now or not, or if you believed Bannon before or not. It has everything to do with judgement. This was a man that Trump put a lot of trust in, that Trump chose to trust to raise up to a high level of power, who now, less than a year later, he is suggesting is "insane". That says as much, if not more, about Trump and his judgement then it does simply about Bannon.

    One can work to change the power dynamic in Washington without finding glee in the irresponsible, irrational and embarrassing behavior of the President.

    He could have gone from "crazy like a fox" to just plain crazy. He did help Trump win the election against overwhelming odds.

    Reagan and both Bush single-handedly constitute a more talented field.

    Or perhaps Bannon is a great strategy advisor for a campaign but was terrible as an advisor to a president. You see it all the time in the corporate field. A great salesman doesnt translate to a good manager of people.

    Nah. The alt-right/Bannon-reading crowd is an insignificant, less than five percent, voting group. Bannon didn't carry popular appeal. Rhetoric ideas maybe, but not key. Bannon is a snake oil salesman, always has been as far as I know.
