Bill Maher Sucked Up to Breitbart, Now He’s Slamming Steve Bannon

The ‘Real Time’ host celebrated the firing of Trump’s chief strategist, but two months ago helped normalize Breitbart, which Bannon called “the platform for the alt-right.”

Bill Maher was in a good mood.

On Friday night’s edition of Real Time, the political satirist stepped out into the spotlight and, in customary fashion, bathed in the adulation of his adoring crowd.

“I think I know why you’re happy,” offered the host, sporting a self-satisfied grin.

President Trump is right, again – Yaakov Menken – The Times of Israel

President Trump was roundly criticized for failing to call out neo-Nazis or the KKK by name in his first statement on the tragic violence in Charlottesville last weekend. Even many others in the GOP, including Marco Rubio and Orrin Hatch, indicated that the President should have been specific.

Yaakov Menken

Yet the fact that the planned rally turned into a very two-sided violent melee is undeniable. And here’s what the President said:

We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides. It’s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. This has been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America. What is vital now is a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives. No citizen should ever fear for their safety and security in our society.

Ignore the Hype: Bannon Was Already Working From the Outside

The departure of Steve Bannon from the White House won’t have a big impact on the day-to-day operations of the West Wing. An economic nationalist who served as Donald Trump’s political id (as well as his chief strategist), Bannon was effectively sidelined back in April, after he was removed from the National Security Council and was accused of insulting Donald Trump’s adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

Bannon’s planned in-house think tank, the Strategic Initiatives Group, never quite got off the ground. His policy portfolio was slim, down to two areas: trade and foreign policy—specifically the war in Afghanistan. Much of the time, Bannon could be found on a couch in the office of his unlikely White House ally, Reince Priebus, scrolling through his phone.

Bannon: ‘The Trump Presidency That We Fought For, and Won, Is Over.’

With the departure from the White House of strategist Stephen K. Bannon, who helped shape the so-called nationalist-populist program embraced by Donald Trump in his unlikely path to election, a new phase of the Trump presidency begins. Given Trump’s nature, what comes next will hardly be conventional, but it may well be less willfully disruptive—which, to Bannon, had been the point of winning the White House.

“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.”

The US sanctioned a ‘smooth as butter’ cartel operator and a Mexican soccer star allegedly working with him

The Office of Foreign Assets Control designed Raul Flores Hernandez and the Flores drug-trafficking organization under the Kingpin Act, naming 21 Mexican citizens and 42 entities — including bars, restaurants, a soccer club, and a casino — for allegedly providing support to the organization or for being owned by people involved it.

Ronnie Wood rejected chemotherapy for lung cancer: ‘This hair wasn’t going anywhere’

Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood has revealed he was diagnosed with lung cancer earlier this year.

During a routine health check, his doctor asked if he could also check his heart, lungs and blood – and discovered what Wood describes as “a supernova burning away on my left lung … He asked me what I wanted to do and my answer was simple: ‘Just get it out of me.’” The cancer hadn’t spread to his lymph nodes, meaning that after a five-hour operation, Wood is healthy for now.
