Steve Bannon is out. The media mogul, who many believe was the architect behind Donald Trump's campaign, was pushed out of the White House amid another week of chaos, and the leaks from the administration became a river:

"I don't think Steve is going to totally abandon the president or be totally disloyal," a source close to Bannon told the Washington Post. "Unless the president allows himself to be overtaken by the liberal Democrats, in which case every Republican will call him to account."

But judging from the tenor of the reporting around Bannon's ouster, the former (and maybe future) head of Breitbart sounds really, really mad.

"Steve is now unchained. Fully unchained," a source close to Bannon told the Atlantic's Rosie Gray. But what does an "unchained" Bannon even look like? Like this?

"Winter is here," a source close to Bannon ominously told the Washington Examiner's Sarah Westwood. And this is the guy who the source is comparing to a White Walker:

"Get ready for Bannon the barbarian," another source told Axios. But what does Bannon the barbarian look like? This?

"He's going nuclear," a friend of Bannon's told the Atlantic. "You have no idea. This is gonna be really fucking bad." Below, a photo of a man who is going to go nuclear:

"There will be consequences," a source close to the White House told New York's Olivia Nuzzi. But of what sort?

Shortly after news of Bannon's departure broke, Breitbart writer and editor Joel B. Pollak ominously tweeted a single word: "#WAR." This is a warlord, I guess:

Former Trump campaign adviser Sam Nunberg, who regularly speaks to Bannon, told BuzzFeed: "Matt Drudge worked to remove Steve Bannon, that is the reality... It's not lost on Steve or [the] Breitbart staff that Drudge was out for Steve."

"If he leaves, it's French Revolution," a source close to Bannon told the Daily Beast. If by "French Revolution," the sources means going back to running Breitbart, then sure.

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci has yet to comment on Bannon's departure, but during his brief tenure at the White House, he did offer this interesting insight into his twisted mind when he told New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza, "I'm not Steve Bannon, I'm not trying to suck my own cock."

Is the world prepared for a Bannon who is fully unchained?

In a phone call with Bloomberg reporter Joshua Green, who literally wrote the book on Bannon, the former Trump adviser attempted to clarify the nature of his alleged newfound hawkish barbarism: "I'm leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents—on Capitol Hill, in the media, and in corporate America."
