I cannot sit on a council for a President that tolerates bigotry and domestic terrorism; I resign, effective immediately.

Steve Bannon on the phone, December 9, 2016
Bannon forgets to say, “off the record?” This is a wonderfully informative interview. Good for Robert Kuttner. Here are a couple of things that struck me in the interview story from American Prospect, but Kuttner.
“I’m changing out people at East Asian Defense; I’m getting hawks in. I’m getting Susan Thornton [acting head of East Asian and Pacific Affairs] out at State.”
But can Bannon really win that fight internally?
“That’s a fight I fight every day here,” he said. “We’re still fighting. There’s Treasury and [National Economic Council chair] Gary Cohn and Goldman Sachs lobbying.”
Bannon went on:
He dismissed the far right as irrelevant and sidestepped his own role in cultivating it: “Ethno-nationalism—it’s losers. It’s a fringe element. I think the media plays it up too much, and we gotta help crush it, you know, uh, help crush it more.”
“These guys are a collection of clowns,” he added.
From his lips to Trump’s ear.
