President Donald Trump reorganized his National Security Council on Wednesday, removing chief strategist Stephen Bannon from a key committee and restoring the roles of top intelligence and defense officials, according to a person familiar with the decision and a notice published in the Federal Register.
EVERYONE RELAX. STEVE BANNON DOESN’T NEED TO BE IN THE NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL ANYMORE SO THIS IS A NON-STORY. HE SERVED HIS PURPOSE AND NOW HE’S BACK IN HIS OLD OFFICE WHERE HE BELONGS.
BREAKING: Bannon’s role on NSC had been as a “check on Mike Flynn,” per top aide, which is no longer needed with McMaster replacing Flynn.

SEE. LOOK WHAT I TOLD YOU. BANNON HAD A SPECIFIC ROLE AND NOW IT’S OVER. HIS JOB WAS TO WATCH MICHAEL FLYNN AND MAKE SURE HE DIDN’T FLIP ON EVERYONE AND RAT. IF I KNOW STEVE BANNON LIKE I HOPE I KNOW STEVE BANNON, THEN MICHAEL FLYNN IS IN A RIVER SOMEWHERE AND THAT’S THE LAST WE’LL HEAR OF THAT SNITCH.
DON’T CRY FOR BANNON.
