Trump’s Chief Strategist Just “Resigned.” Obama’s Chief Strategist’s Response Is Perfect

Today, President Trump parted ways with the man who many believe engineered his racist rise to White House, former Chief Strategist Steve Bannon. David Axelrod, who served in the same position noticed a pattern with Trump and shared it with the twitterverse (tweet below).

Bannon, as executive editor of the extreme right wing “Breitbart News,” said he used the website as “a platform for the alt-right,” which comprises the white supremacist, neo-Nazi elements of the Republican Party.

In recent weeks, rumors of a feud between Trump and Bannon began to circulate as a new book, Joshua Green’s Devil’s Bargain, revealed candidate Trump to have been a puppet for Bannon’s extreme, hateful ideology. It was not the far right ideology that allegedly upset Trump, but the fact that someone else was getting credit for his November victory.

Despite the rumblings, Trump insisted as recently as Tuesday that things were fine between he and Bannon, whom the president described as a “good person.”

It’s the same line that Trump has given about former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, former Press Secretary Sean Spicer, former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, and former Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci.

Notice a pattern? Axelrod did too, and he immediately brought the revelation to Twitter.

Well played, Mr. Axelrod:

Add your name to millions demanding that Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH DONALD TRUMP!
