President Trump Fires Robert And Rebekah Mercer

We all know what just really happened here.

The writing was on the wall, but now it's official...


Stephen K. Bannon, the embattled chief strategist who helped President Trump win the 2016 election but clashed for months with other senior West Wing advisers, is leaving his post, a White House spokeswoman announced Friday.
“White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Steve Bannon have mutually agreed today would be Steve’s last day,” the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said in a statement. “We are grateful for his service and wish him the best.”

And did we mention that sounds of new profit percolation are emanating from within the semi-dormant volcano of money that is RenTech?

This is gonna get goooood.
