A Little Veruca Salt to Rub in Steve Bannon’s Wounds?

From Think Progress:

Ivanka Trump — an official government employee without military experience but with her own White House office— reportedly influenced President Donald Trump’s decision to strike against Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad last week, according to her brother Eric Trump.

Trump authorized a U.S. missile attack on a Syrian airbase on Friday in response to a chemical weapons attack allegedly committed by the Assad regime that killed scores of people, including more than 30 children.

“Ivanka is a mother of three kids and she has influence. I’m sure she said: ‘Listen, this is horrible stuff,’” Eric Trump told The Telegraph.

“My father will act in times like that,” Eric Trump added.

Hey! If that’s all it takes, maybe there’s a way to get rid of Steve Bannon quickly!

From SALON:

Donald Trump’s controversial relationship with the “alt-right” may be headed for an acrimonious split, as the president seems to be turning into what Breitbart trolls and InfoWarriors hate most in this world — a globalist cuck.

It all began last Wednesday when the White House announced that chief strategist Stephen Bannon, an alt-right sympathizer who formerly ran the right-wing website Breitbart News, had been removed from the National Security Council just two months after his controversial appointment. Though the White House downplayed his removal, it was reported that Bannon had threatened to resign, and was convinced to stay by top political donor and Breitbart investor Rebekah Mercer, daughter of the hedge fund billionaire Robert Mercer. News of Bannon’s demotion came with various reports detailing the increasing friction between Bannon and the president’s senior advisor and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who reportedly pushed for Bannon’s removal from the NSC. One report from the Daily Beast cited unnamed White House staffers who alleged that Bannon has taken to calling Kushner a “globalist” and “cuck” behind his back.

Topping off the week of globalist triumph, it was reported on Friday that Trump was considering removing Bannon from the White House altogether, which would clear the way for Kushner and his allies to reshape the administration’s agenda. The following day, however, a White House official told the press that Bannon and Kushner had agreed to “bury the hatchet” after an hour-long meeting.

Nevertheless, though Bannon may be sticking around for a bit longer, it seems increasingly likely that his days in the Trump administration are numbered. According to Mike Allen at Axios, both Kushner and Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump are pushing for a “more open process driven by the interests of the president, not ideology,” and believe that Bannon is “too inclined to want to burn things down and blow things up.” If Bannon cannot adopt a more “cooperative approach,” reports Allen, he will be fired (“Either Steve becomes a team player and gets along with people, or he’ll be gone,” said a top source).

  1. It does look like Bannon is on the way out. Using words like “cuck” suggests it’s a pretty deep feud, and he doesn’t seem like the type who changes course easily. And this time it won’t even cost us $94 million worth of cruise missiles to get rid of him.

    Any significance to the square symbol on Ivanka’s upper chest? I don’t remember ever seeing it before, and these days one starts to suspect almost everything of being some secret alt-right code.

    • If Bannon leaves, I think it will be worse for Twilter than for Bannon. He’ll go back to Breitbart and lead the charge against all the “cucks” in the White House. It will make for an even bigger war among Rethuglicans, so bring it on!

      That mysterious alt-right symbol on Ivanka’s dress is the logo she uses on some of the crap she has made in China. 😆

  2. I hope your prediction is correct. Bannon needs to go even if he wages a war of tell-all about Model T and his cohorts. I like the cartoon and this was informative for me. I had not seen Ivanka’s brand logo and didn’t intend to look for her over priced made in China clothing and what ever else apparel she is marketing. She, nor her clothing, is of interest to me. I’m neither wealthy nor stupid. Nice post here.

    • I think Bannon will do damage to Twitler whether he stays or goes. If he stays, there will be constant leaks about the infighting, and Bannon’s people will do everything they can to take the wind out of Jared’s sails. If he leaves, then he will use Breitbart and his Nazi sympathizers to undermine Twitler and create more schisms in the Rethug party. I think I’ll invest in popcorn futures.
