‘When you take on the family, you lose’: Morning Joe explains why Bannon is spiraling down the drain

Saturday Night Live’s satire might not be far off. The children of President Donald Trump are reportedly not a fan of Steve Bannon and his antics.

A recent report from Vanity Fair outlined the falls from grace amid Trump’s former inner-circle. First was Ret. Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who was forced to resign. Then Kellyanne Conway, “who was effectively sidelined.” Now Bannon is having his fall from grace.

“I’m not sure Steve does a lot of actual work,” one source in Trump’s circle said not long before Bannon was removed from his position on the National Security Council.

Bannon had reportedly threatened to quit if he was removed and the decision “was almost like they were calling his bluff,” someone familiar with the matter told Vanity Fair.
