Michael Flynn
Mike Dubke
Sean Spicer
Reince Priebus
Marc Kasowitz
Anthony Scaramucci
Steve Bannon

Who's next? My money is on Stephen Miller and Sebastian Gorka. Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III and Rex Tillerson were hanging by a thread there, but they seem more secure now. I now look forward to the leaks originating from Bannon and his racist buddies.

So much winning! I love it, especially later in the summer.

Bannon is not fired because of his racist views and Trump is trying to throw him under the bus to make his own life easy after the Charlottesville episode. He is fired because he contradicted Trump on N. Korea and made unnecessary comments on China!

Yeah, if Trump started firing people for racism, he needs to fire himself. It will be interesting to see how the Racist party reacts to this. Bannon acted as the matchmaker between them and their god-emperor. Now that the matchmaker is booted out, will they stay happily married?

guess he's removing all the fighting factions, and ultimately everyone who gels well with Kushner will stay.

at this point I will take it. I would rather take an ineffective 4-years administration if it means I don't get to hear WH turmoil on a 4-hourly basis.

I personally love all the turmoil from the White House. It is so much winning, and I love it. If Trump had deleted his Twitter account on Nov 9, divested his businesses or put them in a blind trust, and focused on being president, he could have repealed Obamacare and passed tax reform. The more drama continues to come out of there, the more he will be stuck legislative gridlock and symbolic things like removing the bikeshare program Obama had gotten set up at the White House, just because they like undoing anything Obama did.

BTW, this was the inner circle that spoke to Putin a week after Inauguration.

Me too. I love watching the Orange lose at everything he touches. I am in Paris for a conference/vacation and everyone here starting from the cabbies on LOATHE him. And they're very disappointed that Macron sucked up to him.

LOL @ the inner circle.

I suggest David Duke as Bannon's replacement.
