The worst thing the media can do with Bannon...

Is run a story every time the man farts. That is truly what helped Trump. While the MSM was running what they thought was a sideshow 24/7, they were actually legitimizing Trump as a Candidate. Bannon is undoubtedly aware he is going to get a lot of free publicity, way beyond the reach of Breitbart, in the coming weeks.

No. Resignations. None.

None from the Administration, none from the Cabinet. Only from a fake Board and Counsel that didn't even meet.

The rats aren't fleeing, the ship ain't sinking. Stop believing these people have a conscience or that Trump supporters, or even many Republicans, are going to abandon him. Just another day riding the Trump Train.

Trump can't fire Sessions

Without a huge backlash. So he is humiliating him publicly to make him quit. What else can you do when your boss tells everyone he is sorry he hired you? Trump wants an AG that will run interference for him and Sessions can't.

I think Trump went into the interview looking to force Sessions out.

My guess of how the Veselnitskaya meeting went...

So through the Agalorovs and Goldstone, whom Donnie Jr. apparently trusts, a meeting is set up with this Russian “Crown attorney.” The Russians, unlike Junior, know what they are doing, so they promise dirt on Hillary Clinton without going into detail that they really have emails, bunches of emails from Podesta, the DNC, and plan to use the internet to wreak havoc on the electorate. The Russians need to take charge of the campaign, and they want only the inner circle to attend, and not lower level staffers, so they play up the “dirt on Hillary,” highly confidential and sensitive, aspect to get them in the meeting. Trump being the amateur he is, gets excited and starts announcing that he is going to give a “major speech” before he even knows what that dirt will be.

So a hard-nosed woman lawyer (picked because she is a woman - psychology, specifically humiliation, is important) shows up. Now they may not know at this point how these Trump insiders would react to Guccifer2.0 and Wikileaks and fake news as a strategy. Who knows, they may even go to authorities, although intelligence tells them this is unlikely. The Russians know they have to set the table first. How would they set that table?

A little video viewing and everything from there changes… the Russians were now in control.

Why is Chris Christie on all the networks this morning?

What does a person have to do to lose credibility? i swear if the White House were to present Charles Manson as a surrogate, the Networks would interview him as if it were normal.

A Presidential Pivot or a Deal?

Trump was the President that a Republican Congress wanted on Tuesday. No egoistic rants about false crowds or landslides, no fake news whining, a response to calls to condemn anti-Antisemitism, even if just for form's sake. Just hardcore Republican promises to tear down regulations, deport people, repeal healthcare reform and screw the environment. No Trumpy distractions.

Trump hasn't attacked a single thing or person or thing on Twitter in over three days.

Is Trump turning over a new leaf on his own, or is there more to this. Is this his concession to keep Congress from forcing an independent investigation? Did McConnell and Ryan let them know that if he wants to stay, he has to jump into line?

Problem is, too many people trying to pull too many strings on this "useful idiot." Is he the marionette of the Russians, the Congress, or the alt-right? If they each are holding a string, the puppet show could become very interesting...

"Jobs for 'loyal' Americans"

Did anyone else notice that Trump said yesterday at the Boeing plant that his Administration will work to create jobs for all "loyal" Americans?

I find that a very concerning use of an adjective. Presidents don't usually link economic growth to loyalty. Loyal to what and who? Is it going to be their plans to create jobs in only states and areas that voted for Trump using infrastructure programs? Is it going to be a justification for not creating job programs in coastal cities, especially inner cities?

Even if it is just Bannon rhetoric, is is truly fascist and troubling rhetoric.
