Steve Bannon to Republicans: 'If We Lose the House, Trump's Going to Get Impeached'

November 6 isn't just any other day for President Donald Trump. It's a life-or-death moment for the Trump administration, according to Steve Bannon, who thinks the president's tenure in the White House will be in jeopardy if the Republicans lose the midterm elections.

"November 6 is really Trump's first reelection," Bannon - Trump's former Chief Strategist - told Bill Maher on 'Real Time' yesterday. "If we lose the House, he's going to get impeached."

And if Trump survives that ordeal, Bannon thinks he could face stiff competition in the 2020 election from a dark-horse candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination: Michael Avenatti, who has risen from obscurity to one of the most tenacious critics of the Trump administration over the last year as the legal counsel for porn star Stormy Daniels.

"If Bernie Sanders had had an ounce of Avenatti's fearlessness, he would have been the Democratic nominee and we would have had a much tougher time beating him," Bannon said. "Avenatti's...got a fearlessness and he's a fighter. I think he'll go through a lot of the field [of presidential candidates] like a scythe through grass."

Bannon and Maher also sparred over Trump's intelligence, the sustainability of the economy's current growth and why Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election. Check out the full debate in the clip below.

Currently dubbed the "godfather of the Canadian cannabis industry," Gertner told Civilized, "If we could live through normalization, we could change the world." Hailing from the fashion industry, this Toronto native says he's on a mission to "make the world a better place through cannabis and design excellence." The only catch is, well, normalizing cannabis — and that's where Gertner's keen eye for style comes in. "In the old days, you were going to be different or you were going to be normal," said Thom Antonio, Gertner's friend, creative director, and collaborator of 35 years.
