Fire And Fury doesn’t tell us anything we don’t already know—and that’s why it’s important

“You’ve got the LeBron James of money laundering investigations on you, Jarvanka,” Steve Bannon yells at the apex of Fire And Fury, Michael Wolff’s gossipy book about the first year of the Trump White House. “My asshole just got so tight!” Thus starts nearly 2,000 words of rapid-fire soliloquy outlining how Bannon…

Let’s check in on the Breitbart comments section, which is surely handling Bannon’s departure well

Steve Bannon, a sentient shitpost that magically inhabited a biohazard disposal facility so as to teach the world about alcoholism, lost his job yesterday, ousted unceremoniously from his perch atop the angry boys’ club at Breitbart News.

Steve Bannon just got his Darth Vader-wannabe ass booted from Breitbart

The New York Times is reporting that Steve Bannon—political strategist, suspected auto-fellator, would-be Sith Lord—has been punted from his spot at the top of the Breitbart News hierarchy.

Donald Trump just slapped his old pal Steve Bannon with a cease and desist letter

Steve Bannon briefly flirted with running for president, much to "running for president"'s disgust

Here’s four words for anybody whose personal Ghost Of Christmas Future is already insufficiently horrific this holiday season: “Steve Bannon for president.” That’s the idea (briefly) floated in a recent Vanity Fair profile on the would-be presidential puppetmaster, an in-depth series of interviews that often touched…

Joe Biden won’t tell Stephen Colbert if he wants to be president, makes damn clear who shouldn’t be

When former Vice President Joe Biden appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert in 2015, shortly after the death of his son Beau from cancer, he wouldn’t answer Colbert’s questions about whether he’d run for president in 2016. In that memorably emotional interview, Biden told Colbert that his emotional state…

God bless Cate Blanchett for fitting a brutal Steve Bannon diss into her statement on sexual harassment

Cate Blanchett is one of those actors that seems almost supernatural, capable of disappearing into roles as large as Bob Dylan and Galadriel, while instantly imbuing more popcorn fare like the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok with a sense of knowing intelligence. Hell, she was the lone bright spot on the worst Indiana Jones…

Jerry Seinfeld says he can no longer enjoy Bill Cosby's work, just a few years after everybody else

Jerry Seinfeld is a guy with a reputation for caring about jokes and comedy above all else (give or take a cup of coffee or a fancy car).

Steve Bannon is doing a juice cleanse to repair his lifetime of evil

While Mike Cernovich is, generally speaking, a legitimately terrible human and a conspiracy theorist who peddles thinly sourced news reports to his adoring fan base of alpha-male trolls, he dropped a fascinating tidbit in his latest Medium post. Entitled “Dispatches From Trumpland,” the post continues the far right’s…

Breitbart’s fidget spinner allows Steve Bannon to keep playing with himself

Now that he’s persona non grata at the White House, Steve Bannon’s moved back into the whiter house, i.e., Breitbart, which eagerly welcomed back its “populist hero.” In fact, the editors at the far-right publication were so excited to have Bannon back, they dove right into an email chain to make disparaging remarks…

Guy posing as Steve Bannon pranks Breitbart editors into doing his “dirty work”

Whatever right-wing playbook that Breitbart and the White House are both currently operating off of is apparently missing a chapter on basic e-mail credulity, as CNN reports that an online prankster—apparently the same guy who duped a number of West Wing official earlier this year—successfully masqueraded as Steve…

Outgoing Steve Bannon declares the Trump presidency “over”
