Why Was Steve Bannon Fired From Trump’s National Security Council?

Steve Bannon played it cool like he wanted to be removed and it was a joint decision that he’s totally fine with. This is unlikely. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go

“President Trump reshuffled his national security organization on Wednesday, removing his chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon, from a top policy-making committee and restoring senior military and intelligence officials who had been downgraded when he first came into office.

The shift was orchestrated by Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, who was tapped as Mr. Trump’s national security adviser after the resignation of Michael T. Flynn, who stepped down in February after being caught misleading Vice President Mike Pence and other White House officials about his contacts with Russia’s ambassador.

General McMaster inherited an organizational scheme for the National Security Council that stirred protests because of Mr. Bannon’s role. The original setup made Mr. Bannon, the former chairman of Breitbart News, a member of the principals committee that typically includes cabinet-level officials like the vice president, secretary of state and defense secretary. The original order also made the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the director of national intelligence only occasional participants as issues demanded.

Critics said Mr. Bannon’s presence in a national security policy-making structure risked politicizing foreign policy.”*

    He was booted because people figured out how unprepared he is to deal with intelligence.

    Sad day for Nazi’s. I think trump is trying to fulfill his dad life goals but he’s a spoiled orange idiot. This shit is hilarious, i know this was going to happen

  4. Tolu Elizabeth says:

    Bannon shouldn’t have been any where near the white house in the first place.

  5. Whytebio says:

    Steve Banon isn’t a white supremacist. He’s openly said he enjoys idiots like you saying he’s a white supremacist because he’s not. He’s an economic nationalist, and the more dickheads like you mislabel him the more it helps him. Didn’t you fuckheads learn anything from the last election that just smearing people with “muh racism!” doesn’t work? The only people you’re stirring up is your own base, which further ensures the polarization of this country.

  8. Jamie Cox says:

    steve Bannon being on the national security counsel is like a black panthers member being one of the KKK board members! what’s my point? Bannon never belonged on the council in the 1st place!

  9. Paul Semler says:

    maybe kushner has a moral compass, maybe not lets wait and see.

  10. fuzzy bunny says:

    a white supremacist blaming a black lady about getting fired, how original, that never happens

  11. Roonskii says:

    Let’s not forget he was put in this position because trump did not read the EO he signed. Hopefully it is because he lost his security clearance and is under FBI investigation. May he die sober in prison after claiming his aim was to take down the United States government at CPAC.

  12. PartisanGamer says:

    Daaaaaaaamn, there is more backstabbing, schemes and rolling heads in this administration than on Game of Thrones.

  13. Knekten says:

    Why was Steve Bannon on the national security council in the first place?

  14. Dennis Duncan says:

    Did Steve Bannon go to his dermatologist and tell him to replace his skin with KFC original recipe?

  15. Richard Kuduk says:

    If you read the fine print you find out that Bannon still has the highest security clearance possible and he is still able to attend meetings. In the memo they added DNI director Dan Coats and the Chairmen of the Joint chiefs of staff General Dunfort back on the NSC. They removed Chief strategist(Bannon) from the NSC. In the memo it states that Counselors to the president (Bannon and Conway) and Assistants/Advisers to the president (Miller, Kushner, and Ivanka) may attend the National Security Council at the pleasure of the President. Bannon holds two titles, Chief strategist and Counselor to the president. So this is a non story. Don’t forget to read in between the lines.

  17. Sean Tisdale says:

  19. josh portie says:

    As much as i despise Bannon this was no victory. So we get more of the traditional war criminals in with Trumps private crazy. This is like cheering that vader killed the emporer and theres no Luke Skywalker. Or a rapist beating up a murderer.
