Bannon: Trump has a “30% Chance of Making a Full Term”

October 11, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Holy Crap, Trump

Vanity Fair has just published a scathing piece about Trump saying that officials in the White House talk more and more openly about how Trump has become unhinged; has “lost a step”; is being isolated by Kelly; “hates everyone” in the White House.  There’s even talk of the Cabinet voting to remove him.

Most significant in this piece, though?  Bannon is quoted as giving Trump a “30% chance of making it a full term”.  Now, THAT is impressive.

  1. Never, ever thought I would like anything Bannon said but then his says that!

  2. Tired of hearing from the monkey, want to hear from the organ grinder.

  3. Tilphousia says:

    Hmmmm. 30%? That sounds a bit high. I would have guessed no more than 25%. But Bannon might know something for once. I do think traitor trump is becoming more unhinged every day. And there are a couple of rethugs who would prefer that nucs aren’t dropped on their home turf. So before that happens, liddle tweetie trumpers goes bye bye.

  4. Wouldn’t you love to be a fly on the wall of a Republican politician these days? I mean, if you didn’t have to look at all the other stuff they do?

  5. What took them so long? Oh yeah. They’re snacilbupeR. We knew it last March, 2016.

  6. JAKvirginia says:

    WHAT?!! Are you suggesting he might, um, abort his presidency? Mid-term???!!! Horrors!

  7. At the risk of being a downer I have to point out that they said as much about GWB as well. And we all know how that turned out.

    If congress after the mid-terms remains in Republican control not only will Trump finish his first term but will get elected for a second. If Republicans lose control then he will be out.

    Simple as that.

  8. Probably not, JAK. He would have to undergo a drastic, radical introspective “moment” before he could do such a thing. Looks like it will be a kicking and scratching departure.

    Ahhhh. XXV’s first real test is in the future.

    I expect the next Hitler-like moment to be soon, when the WH staff and enablers start carrying hand guns to work.

  9. That Other Jean says:

    Dismantling the country has to stop, and our options are few. I’d rather have a palace coup than a nuclear war, but that’s a hell (sorry, Momma) of a thing to consider in a country that was a functioning democracy eleven months ago. I don’t see Republican Congresscritters making up part of the 2/3’s majority in each chamber that would be required to remove Trump under the 25th amendment, and the odds on impeachment and conviction aren’t much better. What on earth can we do?

  10. This is terribly depressing. Hearing such words from Steve Bannon that paragon of truth.If Bannon said how wrong can it be?

  11. Jean, removal pursuant to XXV is very close to being a legitimate form of coup available to us. Any other kind of removal, other than impeachment and/or conviction of a crime and imprisonment, would be a coup detat. I would rather see a constitutional form of forced removal, than a coup detat. If you read XXV carefully, you will notice that removal pursuant to it will take time, or can take time. Man, the people who put XXV together got it right. Those significant periods of time are there for cooling off, and for letting politics work, which is to say, letting deals be proposed, massaged and made. Don’t forget, the King of The Deal is who we are talking about.

  12. WA Skeptic says:

    I should say that the telling of all the lies he’s done, starting with betraying his oath to “support the Constitution of the United States of America…” should be enough of a charge. After all, Bill Clinton was indicted for telling only one lie (about a bj) and barely escaped impeachment. I’d say The Twatwaffle’s documented 1,300 plus lies should definitely pass that bar.

    I’d rather see him booted out of office than to pray that our military should break their own oaths of office to their country by committing mutiny.

    I do, however, wish that someone should stand between the POTUS and the nuclear button with a .45 in their hand.

    I cannot believe I’m even thinking this, much less typing it out.

  13. Pretzelogic in Philly, PA says:

    Other Jean – please forgive me if this is bursting your bubble or something, but if this HAD been a functioning democracy eleven months ago we’d all be talking about President Clinton today.

    Or, given a Gang Of Putin Congress (less likely if this had been a functioning democracy, but let’s assume that as part of the thought experiment), at least debating her impeachment.

    At any rate, there wouldn’t be an Asterisk occupying the White House.

    Otherwise your point is well taken. Hurry up, Mueller!

    Resist! Remove…

    While the slow wheels of justice roll the tumbrils toward Donnie, I’m rooting for natural causes to speed up the process. Maybe Messy will do us a prop and lure Donnie into a fatal embrace. Or, Donnie will self immolate via his short little vulgarian paws wrapped around a fatal dose of fast food. Constitutional crisis averted, thank you fatty fast food.

  15. Susan on the Left Coast says:

    I will sacrifice the first born in my next lives to make sure people like this are in our elected offices…he’s a hero! He starts for a few seconds…and then comes back. Hang on! It’s the words any sentient creature is primal screaming….I’m so fekking proud of him!!

  16. That Other Jean says:

    “I cannot believe I’m even thinking this, much less typing it out.’

    I couldn’t agree more, WA Skeptic. That’s right where I am.

  17. oldymoldy says:

    so now this bannon person is a prognosticator? when will it ever end?!

  18. Susan on the Left Coast: That kind of sacrifice is appreciated, but not required (I hope). The opening salvo was fired off by a representative my state. The state of Louie Gohmert, Ted Cruz, and Rick Perry. I couldn’t be prouder. There’s hope.

  19. Trump–ignorant moronic baby.
    Pence-intelligent, resourceful, bigoted ahole with an hate-filled mission!

    Which do you want in charge?

  20. AlanInAustin ... says:

    I’m staying with my original position: Mueller gets closer and suddenly Trump has “health problems” & retires. He’ll then sit on the sidelines falsely making claims about his accomplishments and talking about ‘what might have been’.

  21. It is time to watch Seven Days in May again. I wonder if its on dvd on the Amazon?
