The Friday departure of Steve Bannon, President Trump's chief strategist, is sure to raise questions. People are already speculating about who made the decision, and when. Bannon says he resigned two weeks ago, while others are claim he was fired. Perhaps all of the answers will be forthcoming.
TRUMP: I fired Bannon.— Sigh Hersh (@Ugarles) August 18, 2017
BANNON: I resigned 2 weeks ago.
TRUMP: I fired him 3 weeks ago.
BANNON: Quit 2 months ago.
TRUMP: Never heard of him.
Trump: I made it so you never existed, but then I never existed. I never existed the best. Ask anyone. They can't say, because I don't exist— Cap'n Peanut Crunch! (@Peanut_Crunch) August 19, 2017

My favorite joke so far is... What's the Trump's Administrations favorite type of ship? A Bannon Ship.— Michael Finn (@mfinn3333) August 19, 2017
Bannon knows a lot of things, confidential US secret things, he's taking with him. This is not over by a long shot.— TheLyd (@Thelyd995) August 19, 2017
😂 Sounds like the real story may be that Bannon and Trump met with Robert Mercer, cooked up a scheme for Bannon to do more harm on the out.— Donny Dumpty (@SayNo2Dumpy) August 19, 2017
