New Front in Breitbart’s #WAR: Website Starts Hawking Bannon-Branded Fidget Spinners

The latest battle in Breitbart’s #WAR against the White House, globalists and the “corporate media” is being fought with a new weapon: Steve Bannon-branded fidget spinners.

As spotted by The Hill’s Will Sommer, Breitbart has begun hawking fidget spinners bearing the former White House chief strategist’s face, along with “#WAR”. “War” was something of a catchphrase for the right wing website’s founder Andrew Breitbart, and was tweeted by one of its editors after the firing of Bannon.

“Leftists need comfort at times like these,” a caption for the product notes. “Gift them this pacifying item that will give them something to do in between pulling down monuments. Or keep one for yourself!”

After he was dumped from President Donald Trump’s White House last week, Bannon returned to the website he once chaired, and has been breathlessly promoting his plans to “crush the opposition” in comments to reporters.

After referring to himself as “Bannon the Barbarian” in an interview with The Weekly Standard, the Breitbart chairman said he was “going to war for Trump against his opponents,” a diverse group into which Bannon lumps Democrats, Hill Republicans and his foes inside the White House — from economic adviser Gary Cohn to Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner.

To join the big war, you can buy the fidget spinners ($7.95 for one, $59.92 for a 10-pack if you’re a based nutcase) on Breitbart’s webstore.
