Shitcannin’ Bannon: Fat putz is FIRED from National Security Council
A very interesting development in what may well be Trump’s last 100 days: incompetent racist Steve Bannon gets the boot from the National Security Council:
President Trump reshuffled his national security organization on Wednesday, removing his chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon, from a top policy-making committee and restoring senior military and intelligence officials who had been downgraded when he first came into office.
The shift was orchestrated by Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, who was tapped as Mr. Trump’s national security adviser after the resignation of Michael T. Flynn, who stepped down in February after being caught misleading Vice President Mike Pence and other White House officials about his contacts with Russia’s ambassador.
General McMaster inherited an organizational scheme for the National Security Council that stirred protests because of Mr. Bannon’s role. The original setup made Mr. Bannon, the former chairman of Breitbart News, a member of the principals committee that typically includes cabinet-level officials like the vice president, secretary of state and defense secretary. The original order also made the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the director of national intelligence only occasional participants as issues demanded.
Critics said Mr. Bannon’s presence in a national security policy-making structure risked politicizing foreign policy.
Bloomnberg led with a different characterization:
President Donald Trump reorganized his National Security Council on Wednesday…
Naturally, Team Trump is trying to spin the firing:
White House official echoing what I heard earlier. They say he was put on NSC as "check on Flynn"
