CNN’s Mike Rogers on Bannon’s ‘Shockingly Bad’ Exit: ‘Don’t let the Door Hit You on the Way Out’
If you happened to take a really epic nap in the past few hours, allow me to catch you up. Steve Bannon has left his role as White House Chief Strategist and . Then, in an interview to the Weekly Standard, Bannon revealed there may be some animus in his departure with some of those left in the White House staff with these comments:
“The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over,” Bannon said Friday, shortly after confirming his departure. “We still have a huge movement, and we will make something of this Trump presidency. But that presidency is over. It’ll be something else. And there’ll be all kinds of fights, and there’ll be good days and bad days, but that presidency is over.”
This came up in today’s Situation Room where host Wolf Blitzer asked CNN contributor Mike Rogers, a former U.S. Representative for Michigan’s 8th congressional district and vocal critic of the Trump administration. Rogers did not demur in his critique, calling Bannon’s comments “shockingly bad” for putting himself before the presidency, adding “don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”
A respected member of the GOP , Rogers served as a U.S. Representative from from 2001 to 2015. From 2011 to 2015, he was Chairman of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
