Far-right shouts ‘COUP!’ as Bannon ousted from White House – McClatchy Washington Bureau

Leaders of the far-right movement raged against Steve Bannon’s ouster from the White House, warning the West Wing is now dominated by fake conservatives led by President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner.

“It’s a full on coup now, guys,” well-known far-right activist Mike Cernovich said in a live video stream on Twitter on Friday.

Cernovich directly blamed “Javanka” — the nickname for Ivanka Trump and Kushner — for the ouster of the administration’s nationalist ideologue.

Bannon is a hero to those on the far-right. As former editor of the information site Breitbart, Bannon courted the so-called “alt-right,” a loose confederation of white nationalist, white supremacist and anti-semitic groups. He was widely credited by these groups — and blamed by Republicans and Democrats alike — for Trump’s many veiled overtures to the far-right.

His exit had been rumored for weeks. Calls for him to go ramped up after the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville that left one woman dead.
