Billionaire Republican donor Sheldon Adelson just publicly disavowed Steve Bannon

Sheldon Adelson, a Las Vegas casino magnate and well-known GOP megadonor, is leaving former White House aide Steve Bannon over his attacks on Republican incumbents.

As Politico reports, a spokesperson for Adelson said the billionaire casino owner and his family “will not be supporting Steve Bannon’s efforts,” and instead “are supporting Mitch McConnell 100 percent.”

The report notes that the public disavowal came a month after Bannon and Sheldon met in Washington, and just one day after the Breitbart executive praised the Vegas billionaire during a speech at the Zionist Organization of America dinner.

“Bannon had been slated to introduce Adelson and his spouse, Miriam, at the event, according to a copy of the program,” the report says. “The Adelsons, however, did not make it to the event, one person close to the couple said — in part because Adelson was concerned that appearing publicly with Bannon would be seen as a tacit endorsement of his efforts.”

1. Report: Adelson splits with Bannon over 2018 efforts


BY OLIVIA BEAVERS - 11/13/17 11:19 PM EST

GOP megadonor and Las Vegas casino owner Sheldon Adelson is reportedly breaking with ex-Trumpp adviser Stephen Bannon and switching his support to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) over Bannon's push to challenge Republican incumbents in 2018.

“The Adelsons will not be supporting Steve Bannon’s efforts,” spokesman Andy Abboud told Politico in a report published Monday.

“They are supporting Mitch McConnell 100 percent. For anyone to infer anything otherwise is wrong,” he added, nearly a month after Adelson reportedly met with President Trump's former chief strategist in Washington, D.C.

The report comes after Bannon has been courting possible donors to contribute to his efforts to unseat members whom he sees as part of the Republican establishment.

3. Bannon aligns with Nazis

It's not all that complicated. They've adopted the principals and ideology of the most vile political hate movement in all of History. Our fathers and uncles must be rolling in their graves.

6. no it isn't that complicated. What is amazing is that Adelson who is Jewish is a complete idiot to

support him in the first place, and for such a long time after it was realized the anti-semetism of Bannon

14. Bannon was in the White House and still whispers in Rump's

ears daily. That's plenty of reason to "support" him while it's working for Adelson.

There's no reason to think Adelson's exceptionally bright, but that he had no idea what all us brilliant folk knew from our armchairs for the past two years is extremely not credible.

Obviously, he's decided time's come to fire Bannon as an agent who no longer suits him.

18. Sarcastic? :) I'm guessing if Adelson refused to do business

with any of the antisemites he sees in government a lot of avenues to power would be cut off.

20. :) Ever noticed the more conservative, and also the more

extreme on either left or right, the less competent and capable of wisdom people become? Rump's administration and today's Republican congress are merely extreme examples.

15. Rats leaving the ship.

Adelson and others like him see Trump and by extension Bannon sinking and want to save their own tails by distancing themselves from them.
