    Is Steve Bannon Out?

    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 it was delayed in the wake of the racial unrest in Charlottesville, Va.

    Did I hear that Trump has been giving Mike Pence funny looks, lately?

    This whole thing is too much like "The Apprentice."

    Mike Pence is one guy there who's constitutionally protected. You can ask your V.P. to resign, but you can't fire him.

    Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner also seem pretty safe, for obvious reasons.

    Beyond that, well, may the odds be ever in your favor.

    Oh well, after Bannon and Gorka I was hoping for a de-Nazification hat trick. But I guess there's always next Friday....

    Who is Marc Lotter and why is his name in the news?

    It turns out that he's Mike Pence' Press Secretary. Who cares? Maybe nobody cares . . . unless you're keeping track of all the people in the Trump White House who have quit or been fired. Yeah, he quit.

    Enh, looks like he's just moving to a campaign job. Not the same as the others, IMHO.

    As I understand it, that job he's moving into hasn't exactly been determined yet. The Japanese would say he's been given a window seat.

    In other words, you think it may just be too embarrassing for them to keep firing people, so now they'll try to just shelve them instead? That's really sad if true.
