Donald Trump, Steve Bannon, and Charlottesville

"I said he was". The departure of his inter-office ally, Reince Priebus, has made him lonelier still.

"Is Steve Bannon the leaker?" the late-night emcee asked before Scaramucci responded: "I said he was".

Trump has for months considered ousting Bannon, and many critics have pressured the president to do so after Trump waited two days to blame white supremacists for the violence in Charlottesville.

The Late Show band played the "scaramouche" part of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" as the Long Island native walked out and Colbert emphasized, "I want you to know, just for the record, this is on the record, this is being recorded", referring to the Mooch's infamous New Yorker interview.

One of the senior officials said McMaster's anger over the campaign "is known to the president" but declined to say whether the national security adviser had told Trump directly or through General John Kelly, an ally and the president's new chief of staff.

"Who cares? Really, we're supposed to feel bad for a guy because he gave up his billion-dollar lifestyle to be the most powerful man in the world?"

"Sadly, it seems clear that influential members of his administration were more anxious about winning votes through dog whistles and winks and nods to the most evil elements of our society than in maintaining the moral authority of the presidency", Palomarez said.

"I think there's a couple issues", said Scaramucci more seriously. A source told us that Bannon's also "hit Gary Cohn as 'a globalist.'" The Mooch declined to comment, but said of Bannon, "He goes after people who do not share his views".

Americans deserve to know that white nationalists, white supremacists, and neo-Nazis are not in a position to influence USA policy. Yet Trump, who is conflict averse and still likes Bannon, might not be ready to pull the trigger anytime soon.

In question after question, Colbert's focus was sharp and he would not tolerate spin-although Scaramucci is a far more direct operator than, say, Kellyanne Conway.

"The white supremacists who descended upon Charlottesville have brought vile racism, hatred and bigotry to the forefront of our political discourse once again". According to the New York Times, the president hedged his response to white supremacist violence at the advice of his chief strategist, accused anti-Semite, and former Breitbart News executive Steve Bannon. They don't get the middle-class Americans that sent Trump to the White House.

'What I don't like is the toleration of it, for me it's something that should not be tolerated'.
