    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.

    My prediction: the next to go will be Gorka. (P.S. Carl Icahn just quit the Trump team)

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

    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.

    Well done! I'll play: next will be Stephen Miller.

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

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

    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.

    I don't know what happened. I know that being the spokesperson for the Vice President has got to be pretty close to a dream job for a lot of people and it seems a little unusual to get that job, keep it for less than a year and then leave it in order to take some generic job in a campaign (which is still years from an actual election). I was thinking that he just wanted to get out, even if he had no other job waiting, and they talked him into staying within the organization. A guy like that has got to know a lot about what happens within the White House
