He described himself as a Leninist. For a while he was Trump's Rasputin, the dark wizard devoted to bringing down the apparatus of the American state.
Then Trump's chief of staff, John Kelly, had enough of the Bannon insurgency and Stevie was shown the door, heading back to Breitbart from where he pledged to continue the alt.right revolution.
Well now Bannon has been turfed from Breitbart too.

Well, Steve, cheer up. Here's a parting gift from the legendary Alberta Hunter.
