Michael Wolff did Trump a big favor

This was the first thought that came to my mind when bannon got smashed. Itís crazy but nothing sticks to trump. He always manages to come out of simingly the most dire situations. A master of all con artists.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/michael-wolff-did-trump-a-big-favor/2018/01/09/7acfaf94-f565-11e7-beb6-c8d48830c54d_story.html?utm_term=.cd85384038fc

But we all should feel a little safer w/o bannon and his extreme advise.

1. I never really thought about it until your post, but Wolff basically got Bannon fired

Without the book, Bannon's comments probably never come out.

2. Nothing used to stick to John Gotti, either. Until it did.

Which sometimes makes watching the comeuppance even more satisfying

3. I hate to admit it, but Trump kicked our ass last year

 

He's untouchable.

4. No, trumps base and the 30 something percent still support the bigoted crap

Bannon got fired for telling the truth about trump, not for his fucked up views and policy positions.

10. I didnt look/care because the argument makes total sense to me

I felt exact same way yesterday the moment I learned bannon got fired. This means trump is free now to do whatever can improve his ratings...

6. I dont think the argument being made hold up.

 

I donít think these events put fear in Republicans as the author proposes.

8. There is good and bad

Bannon out kind of did Trump a favor but he had already been fired

The bigger favor is helping provide Trump with an excuse to keep him out of jail: his mental health

On the down side for Trump, there is a bunch of new material Mueller and his team can go through that will probably help them nail Trump and his cronies.

11. his family might be in trouble

which he can pardon but trump himself not sure, with the trickery and full gop support regardless of findings. W/o bannonís influence Iíd rather have trump for a little while than pence. At least trump is helping to form a blue wave with his antagonzing rhetoric and irrational behavior. With pence, it will be harder for us to take over senate and house.

If you want something from trump - you have flatter him.

14. please

have you read the book? he is a Ďtypistí, nothing more; a total rookie, I am not scared of him, he may be gone too if ivanka pushes for it. He is not effective w/o bannon

15. I have read the book. It's right here in front of me.

And the impression I got from it and everything else I've seen and read is that Trump is influenced by whomever he talked to most recently. I'm not "afraid" of Miller either, but I also think the Bannonite influence is not gone.
