Twitter Goes Nuts Over Bannon Ouster: ‘Wanted to Spend More Time Sucking His Own C*ck’

After days of rumors that he was on the outs in the Trump administration, the Drudge Report reported that White House chief strategist Steve Bannon was gone.

This all comes in the wake of not only Bannon’s clashes with much of the rest of the West Wing, but also his explosive comments to left-wing outlet American Prospect in which he undermined Trump’s North Korea strategy, dismissed ethno-nationalism as a “fringe element” — while pushing Trump to focus on Confederate statues — and ripping his colleagues in the White House.
