    Steve Bannon has resigned as White House chief Strategist.

    Listening to someone on the radio talking about this, he believes it is most likely that Kelly forced him to resign or just sacked him. The general feeling was that Trump’s disastrous handling of Charlottesville was engineered by Bannon.

      I rather think Trumpy’s disastrous handling of anything is engineered by Trumpy. He seems to be congenitally incapable of saying anything other than what he himself really thinks. Even when he reluctantly accepts & reads from a carefully worded script, he’ll depart from it with an ad lib or immediately say something conentious in reply to a question. Let’s face it, he ain’t no diplomat, he never will be, & he’s pugnacious to a fault. 😉

          Yes, in some ways, but being erratic & a hot-head means a lot of the refreshing is going to be with his staff & appointees, & to be divisive & an easy target for his entire term.
