Steve Bannon, the lightning rod former chief of Breitbart News who helped steer President Donald Trump’s successful presidential campaign last year, is set to be ousted from his job as chief political strategist.

The New York Times is reporting that Trump made the decision to oust Bannon on Friday — but he’s still debating when and how to give the former Breitbart boss the boot.

“The president and senior White House officials were debating when and how to dismiss Mr. Bannon,” the Times reports. “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.”

Meanwhile, Bannon himself has told reporter Sara Carter that he issued his resignation to the White House “two weeks ago.”

Wall Street Journal reporter Michael Bender also confirmed that Bannon is no longer working at the White House.

Bannon has had a rocky tenure as top strategist, as he has frequently clashed with Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, and has in the past week done several on-the-record interviews in which he took shots at members of the administration and undermined its foreign policy strategy by declaring there is no military solution to the North Korea crisis.

A small group of protesters came to one of Lindsey Graham's latest campaign events, and they were quickly attacked by supporters of President Donald Trump chanting "four more years."

Graham's event seemed to have more support for Trump than for Graham at his own weekend event. It's unknown why the Trump supporters were not chanting for Graham.

"Get the hell out!" one Trump supporter can be heard shouting. He and another older man were seen wagging their fingers

At least one Graham protester could be seen holding up a sign with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The South Carolina senator is fighting for his political career and many other Republicans struggling to hold onto their seats. Graham is now being confronted with past comments he made saying that no president, regardless of the party, should make a Supreme Court pick right before his or her election.

Black man takes N-word spewing racist to school — and makes him promise to never do it again

Published

on

When a racist White guy at a marina shouted out the N-word at a group of Black men, he probably didn't count on their response being a history lesson, but that's precisely what happened.

While President Donald Trump is claiming that Black community members are beating and killing White racists and responding with general violence, the two men showed a different reality.

"What made you say it?" the men asked.

The white guy shrugged.

"You that racist?" one of the men asks.

"Uh, no, I--" the White guy tried to answer.

"Then why would you call us a n*gger?" one of the men asks.

Lamar Alexander refuses to stand against Trump Supreme Court choice

Published

on

Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) is an outgoing Senator but he is firmly supporting President Donald Trump's nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court.

In a statement released Sunday, Alexander claimed that the so-called "McConnell Rule" doesn't count because the Senate and the White House is ruled by Republicans. The "McConnell Rule" was never a rule until McConnell decided he didn't want former President Barack Obama to nominate another justice when conservative Justice Antonin Scalia died suddenly.

"Senator McConnell is only doing what Democrat leaders have said they would do if the shoe were on the other foot," said Alexander.
