CNN contributor April Ryan has a hilarious theory about why Trump & Bannon fell out: It’s SNL’s fault

Liberals are in absolute glee over the Trump-Bannon feud.

White House correspondent and CNN political analyst April Ryan got a piece of the action with an early-morning tweet on Friday, in which she suggested NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” provoked the falling out between the president and his former adviser.

“When SNL did that skit with Steve Bannon as the president and @realDonaldTrump in the small desk that was the beginning of the end for their connect,” Ryan wrote. “The complete end is now here.”

Ryan referred to an August SNL cold open in which Steve Bannon, depicted as the Grim Reaper, bid Alec Baldwin’s Donald Trump impression good-bye before departing from the White House.

At the end of the skit, the Bannon-Reaper asked President Trump, “Can I have my desk back?”

“Yes, of course, Mr. President,” Baldwin’s Trump said. “I’ll go sit at my desk.” The SNL version of President Trump then sat at a small desk while the Breitbart chairman took the presidential desk.

Bannon has faced enormous backlash for making negative comments about President Trump and his family in quotes for Michael Wolff’s “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House.”

Many Breitbart readers expressed dismay at Bannon’s comments.

Rebekah Mercer, the daughter of hedge fund manager Robert Mercer and a financial backer of both Breitbart and Bannon’s political activities, broke ties with the former Trump strategist.

“I support President Trump and the platform upon which he was elected,” Mercer told the Washington Post. “My family and I have not communicated with Steve Bannon in many months and have provided no financial support to his political agenda, nor do we support his recent actions and statements.”


On Thursday night, the president lashed out at Bannon, calling him “Sloppy Steve.”

Only time will tell if Steve Bannon will be able to recover from this one
