    I just read the Steve Bannon news out loud to my family-we all gasped and my daughter said “Christmas has come early!”

    • Juls says:

      It must have come early because I see a picture of a Christmas ham in the header.

      • Liz version 700 says:

        Hahahaha I wonder how many layers of jail shirts he will wear at a time. What is this feeling… so strange…. I think I am ….smiling. Hahahahahaahaha getting arrested by Postal Service agents…that is the biggest middle finger to Trump imaginable

      • Christin says:

        These are the laughs and karmic signs we need right now.

        Imagine him insisting on multiple jumpsuits so he can create his signature multi-collar look!

    • Lightpurple says:

      The absolute best part of this is that the arresting officers were Postal Service agents.

    • lisanne says:

      Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Year’s all rolled into one!

  2. Sierra says:

    Bannon arrested by Postal Service agents (oh the irony), Trump ordered to submit his Tax returns and Biden officially accepting the nomination.


    • Joanna says:

      Oh, I didn’t know trump was ordered to show his tax returns! Yay

    • NatureLover says:

      Yes, as Mr. Rogers would sing, it’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood….
      When I read the news this morning and read the article, it seems that Bannon has the stickiest hands in the bunch so it’s jail time for him. Over 1MIL dollars he stole! Yes, it’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood news today!

    • Mina_Esq says:

      2020 is giving me so much whiplash. Just when we all feel defeated, 2020 is like, “Surprise, bi*ches! Here is VP Kamala, Bannon arrest, and Trump tax returns!”

  3. Christin says:

    Oh my. Are the chickens finally coming home to roost?

    But it’s federal, so Billy Boy may get involved. Or is Steve a distracting casualty for the Orange puppet?

    • Badrockandroll says:

      I think Barr had to choose between Bannon and Giuliani. Since Giuliani is clinically NUTS!!!, and Bannon is a psychopathic poker player who has already perjured himself for 45, I figure they will keep Rudy safe and quiet (no telling what he’ll say!) and buy Bannon off with a pardon promise for this round of his lies.

      • Christin says:

        That Friday night firing just did not work out well for Barr. Strauss is making things happen.

        Rudy is the textbook definition of human loose cannon. He would definitely spill everything.

  4. Lizzie Bathory says:

    I bet Bannon’s shook that he can only wear 1 rumpled shirt at a time in prison.

  5. Escondista says:

    Bannon was arrested on a boat off the coast of Connecticut. Optics couldn’t scream “white collar criminal” any louder.
    Throw away the keys.

    • Christin says:

      Especially when the yacht is reportedly owned by a “mysterious” Chinese billionaire.

      • Anne Call says:

        Who also is a member at Mar a Lago.

        The movies and mini series from the Trump years will probably keep us entertained for the next decade.

      • MaryContrary says:

        And Biden is the one who’s going to sell us out to the Chinese??!

      • Christin says:

        @MaryContrary – They project all the time, don’t they?

        @AnneCall – It will be a welcome relief when this becomes entertainment instead of real-life. The writers will be busy for decades!

  6. FHMom says:

    Some good news for a change!

  7. Mel M says:

    Ugh, I love Sam Cook and that song. Her voice is beautiful but just like her “Memory” cover I like the original better.

  8. lucy2 says:

    Well that’s the best news I’ve seen in a while! I hope the case is airtight and he is held accountable, and he’s just the next of many.

    The #TrumpMeltdown was prompted by #ObamaDidEverythingBetter trending. Hahahahaha.

  9. Levans says:

    I wonder if this is why Trunp was trying to fire the federal prosecutor in NY!?!

  10. smcollins says:

    Cue Trump “I don’t him” distancing himself but will then pardon him. But….if he’s not convicted until after Trump is out of office (🤞🏻) he can’t pardon him, right?

  11. Teebee says:

    All those poor little MAGAts, scratching their spidery signatures on those checks, sending them to Trump for his magnificent wall to keep out the rapists and drug lords…their money stolen by the very dude that helped machinate this whole charade…

    What’s that word again? It’s not bittersweet.

    Uh, oh yeah. It’s sweet.

    • Joanna says:

      It’s karma baby! HAHAHA. The guy who was also in on the scam lives in the Destin FL. I live near there and it’s an area with many Trump supporters

    • Liz version 700 says:

      That big beautiful wall that could not even stay upright during a category 1 hurricane hahahahaha

  12. adastraperaspera says:

    Bannon arrest the day after Kamala’s VP acceptance speech–is this heaven?? And U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss is killing it!! I relished every single word of this SDNY press release!


  13. Fani says:

    Audrey Strauss is making her presence know.

  14. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Can y’all see my happy dance?

  15. Nina Simone says:

    I LOVE this song!! 😍😍

    Hopefully Bannon squeals on Trump like the pig he is. I can’t wait to see all these grifters in prison. They’ve stolen so much from us

  16. Steff says:

    Hip hip HOORAY! Hip hip HOORAYYY!!

  17. Izzy says:

    And USPS agents were involved. I guess now we know why Dump was trying so hard to defund the Postal Service.

    Man, Karma is rolling her bus right on through 2020 without tapping the brakes even once.

  18. Mireille says:

    FIRST, NY Attorney General Leticia James goes after the NRA.
    THEN, the SDNY and the USPS goes after Bannon.
    Somewhere out there Preet Bharara is laughing has ass off. Of course expect Trump and company to cry “CONSPIRACY” and blame radical left wing socialist anarchists, the Clintons, the Obamas, the Bidens, TikTok, Hollywood, and Nancy Pelosi for all of this.

    Lots of thoughts about Bannon and NRA. No prayers.

  19. ClaireB says:

    I don’t think I can let my hopes rise at all, but at least he’s experiencing some kind of consequence for all his democracy-destroying actions, even if it’s just a couple of counts and Barr will probably try to intervene.

  20. SamC says:

    On the one hand, not surprised and glad he was arrested. On the other, based on the photos after he was released on bail, he looks pretty dang happy at all the attention again, which means he’s probably going to be all over the media again, esp with the RNC convention next week.
