Your son seems like a bit of a badass there! Good on him though, very fearless.

When did having disagreement on policy with those to the left or right of your own stances have anything to do with whether or not Nazis are good? For fucks sake.

I'm sure there were some assholes who were looking for a fight on the left in Charlottesville. But they still weren't Nazis. When did this even become a debatable topic?

We're so fucked.

If Bannon wants to play the Ross Perot role and split the conservative vote in the next election, I'll take it.

Breitbart already ran a story that Bannon submitted his resignation on August 7.

So basically it's this: "No, no. You didn't break up with me. I broke up with you."

Trump has now lost charities that were to be held at his Florida resort.

That's how you hurt him, with finances.

Seems like things are really spiraling down now for him.

Either he resigns or he starts WW3

It's just a steady drip of departures with this administration, isn't it? Maybe that's the best way to weed these nutjobs out, instead of trying to get rid of them all at once.

Bye, Bannon. Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out !

Oh, god, let's hope not. I just want him to disappear somewhere never to show his face again.

Danny Boy makes a good point about the role he could play in the next election, though, if he did go that route...

Exactly. I'm seeing people online ranting about how the "left" is making too big a thing out of this and I'm thinking, "Gee, you're not exactly making a good case for conservatives if you think only us liberals are the ones who are bothered by this." I would hope anyone, regardless of which side of the political aisle they're on, with anything resembling decency and compassion and a brain, would be horrified by the neo-Nazis/white supremacists and their actions above all else.

This isn't that complicated a situation to take a stance on. It really isn't.

It's amazing that the POTUS can make people feel sorry for Jeff Sessions and hope that Bannon rolls out with guns blazing.

We have a chance of rain here on Monday. I hope if we get any, it holds off until after the eclipse, 'cause I wanna see this thing!
